50 Shades of Grey now set to do well at NZ box office

BOYCOTT ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’

One of the most talked-about movies for 2015 is about to be released – and you and I need to be prepared.

“Fifty Shades of Grey” is an adaptation of E.L.James’ best-selling erotic novel, the fastest selling paperback of all time. It is credited with mainstreaming soft porn literature. The movie is billed as ‘the raunchiest movie picture in over a decade’.

The US National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCSE) has launched a campaign against the movie. NCSE’s website fiftyshadesisabuse.com highlights 50-plus ways that Fifty Shades harms and provides various actions that the public can take, including signing a boycott petition and joining the #50DollarsNot50Shades campaign, which calls on families to forgo the film and donate instead to programmes which target family and sexual violence –

In my experience when a Christian or family group call for a boycott of a movie, it helps propel ticket sales to record highs. So the call for a boycott should ensure it does very well at the box office.
