The waiting truly is the hardest part. After all the hype, Focus Features is going to take another year to whip their "Fifty Shades of Grey" adaptation into shape. Due to all the recent behind-the-scenes shake-ups, the studio has has decided to push the film back to 2015, which was already the busiest movie year in history (if you're a superhero, a space warrior or a domineering billionaire, you have a movie coming out in 2015). The wait will be worth it for hardcore "Fifty Shades" fans however, as early rumors indicate that there will be an extra-steamy NC-17 cut of the film.
As for the rest of this week's list...
November 22, 2013
1. "Fifty Shades of Grey"
Putting the "power" in "Movie Power Rankings" since 2013.
2. "Batman Vs. Superman"
More and more news is flying in about the "Man of Steel" sequel, but there are still plenty of questions. Will it be influenced by "Kingdom Come"? Is Lex Luthor a villain? Will it be worth the wait? Why couldn't this have come out when I was 9?
