ATTENTION, Anastasians!!! Big news about the Big Fifty Shades Film Sequel next spring: Fifty Shades Darker (set for a Feb 10, 2017 release) is filming in Vancouver AS WE SPEAK, and a sneak-peek trailer is now available, according to Heavy.com.
Word on the street---er, from Heavy.com---is that Kim Basinger is signed to play Elena ("Mrs. Robinson") Lincoln in Fifty Shades Darker, with Bella Heathcoate playing ex-Christian submissive (and current Ana-stalker) Leila Williams.
But First Things First: Heavy.com reports that during a scene filmed on March 16th, Christian (okay: Jamie Dornan) poured some red wine that he and Anastasia (Dakota Johnson) talked over, proving once again that wine is a BIG part of this movie and book series.
Care to join in? Try a glass of Red Satin or White Silk today!
RELAX, my darling Anastasians, and DO take a moment to still your palpitating hearts: a new Fifty Shades of Grey Red has NOT been released without your knowledge!
Instead, Popsugar reports that Tituss Burgess (who plays aspiring Broadway star Titus Andromedon on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) is releasing his own wine, Pinot by Tituss, on March 14th.
Kimmy Schmidt fans will fondly remember Tituss’ self-filmed Peeno Noir music video, and Popsugar muses: “We have to say. . . we have yet to see how this red fares against the Fifty Shades of Grey wine.”
Challenge accepted, Popsugar! We know there’s room for more than one outstanding DVD Diva Red on the shelves this Spring!
Try a glass of Fifty Shades of Grey Red Satin Wine today!
Alas, lovely Anastasians!!! Word holds that "Fifty Shades Darker"--the sequel to last year's smash "Fifty Shades of Grey" film--won't be released in theaters until NEXT Valentine's Day, which really throws a kink into a girl's V-Day weekend plans this year.
Christian and Ana, taking a year off.

Leave the Handcuffs, Keep The Collar: What To Wear To the Fifty Shades of Grey DVD Release (In Your Living Room)
It's fitting that a Seattle jewelry designer (Lisa Richardt) crafted the horseshoe necklace Dakota Johnson favors as Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades of Grey film--it's an inadvertent local touch added by the film's costume designer, who purchased the piece at a West Hollywood boutique.

Seattle Refined reports that Richardt's business, Veronica & Harold, has seen a surge of orders since the film came out. “I haven’t figured out how to keep up with production, especially because I make every single piece myself," Richardt said.
Ah, today is indeed our lucky day: FSOG in our DVD player, FSOG in our wine glass, and now a little piece of FSOG around our...neck.
Fine wine connoisseur Tom Leykis clinks a few glasses with Mark Beaman and Fifty Shades of Grey Film Producer Dana Brunetti in his Tasting Room podcast.
Beaman recounts the creative process behind the unique blends of Fifty Shades of Grey wines, and reveals how Petite Sirah adds a snap of "wildness" to the Red Satin's smooth flavor.
Fifty Shades of Fun: Dana Brunetti, Mark Beaman and Tom Leykis wait for a refill
Leykis praises the complexity of both White Silk and Red Satin (while saving room for the 100% Petite Sirah Beaman brought him to sample later) and gets Beaman and Brunetti to dish about tasting wine in a hotel room with E L James (apparently spit cups were provided, but--spoiler alert!--none were used!). Beaman also provides a colorful and insightful history of Mendocino Winery and the Central Valley, spotlighting its wealth of varietals.
All in all, a delectable and informative half-hour that sounds like good friends chatting over a great bottle of wine, and reminds us that there are two more FSOG films to look forward to!! Hand us that corkscrew...
