Fans of E.L. James’ erotic franchise may already be trembling with anticipation for the Valentine’s Day release of Fifty Shades Darker next year, but soon they’ll have an (even more) immersive taste of Christian Grey to tide them over.

Deadline reports that special virtual-reality footage from the world of Fifty Shades will be released with other marketing materials ahead of the upcoming film’s release, and will give fans behind-the-scenes glimpses of the erotic fiction’s newest adaptation. Director James Foley explainedto audiences at Paramount Pictures’ “VR on the Lot” event, “[After] we finished shooting for the day, the actors would stay over and VR people would re-create a facsimile of the scene.”



Foley, who recently wrapped back-to-back filming of the franchise’s next two installments, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed, reportedly also told audiences that re-creating several of the film’s scenes in virtual reality made a serious impact on him (one he enjoyed, seemingly) and on his views for the future of VR. “My own personal instinct is that cinema is going to move to VR because it’s an extension of the visual language,” he said. “For myself, watching the material they generated expanded my brain.”

Neither of the upcoming films will feature 3D footage, Deadline points out, but Foley stressed that the world of traditional cinema should make note that virtual reality’s coming for it, anyway. “This all needs to be reinvented,” the House of Cards director said, “[and] the train is leaving the station, I think, and travelling really fast.”

In the mean time, erotic-fiction fans who’re itching for a high-tech boost could consider trying out Vibease and Little Bird‘s options for vibrator-connected, pleasure-enhanced reading. The official Fifty Shades Darker sex toy line could also help pass the time, perhaps, ’til February rolls around.

Of course, if nothing but Mr. Grey will do, there’s always the trailer to help get fantasies a’ flowin’.
