Analysis:

Somewhat of a erotica, something out of a mature fairy-tale, Fifty Shades of Grey has recently broken the 110 million copies sold worldwide milestone, proving to be a book phenomenon. If any Harry Potter or Hunger Games movie has proven anything, it’s that massive books translate to huge movies, and Grey is no different. The only problem is it’s subject, while many viewers will go and watch, the average person doesn’t want to be seen walking into a sorta-porno, which will hurt numbers slightly. Otherwise, Fifty Shades will be a #1 valentines weekend and still stay in the Top Ten for another 3-4 weeks at least.
