Watch: New 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' Clip Doesn't Do Romance, Mississippi Really Wants To See The Movie

Fifty Shades Of Grey” is going to be huge when it opens next weekend, and the only question is just how large the box office haul will be. Fandango has been busy crunching the numbers, as the film has become the fastest-selling R-rated title in the movie ticket seller’s history, and interestingly enough, its audiences down South are showing a greater than expected interest in the flick. “’Fifty Shades’ is a true phenomenon all across the country,” Fandango Chief Correspondent Dave Karger said. “It’s a surprisingly hot seller in the South and the Heartland, indicating that the anticipation for this film is across the board.” But if you’re signing up for tender feelings, you’re going to see the wrong movie.

Yet another new clip has dropped for the movie this week, providing an additional peek into the relationship between Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. And this time around, the hot pillow talk is about how shirtless Christian “doesn’t do romance.” I’m pretty sure you won’t find a Hallmark card with that sentiment.

Anyway, check out the clip below, along with Fandango’s list of the states where pre-sales are going through the roof.

The top ten states where “Fifty Shades” pre-sales are much larger than expected:
1. Mississippi: 3.9x
2. Arkansas: 2.8x
3. West Virginia: 2.7x
4. Kentucky: 2.1x
5. Alabama: 2.0x
6. Louisiana: 2.0x
7. North Dakota: 1.9x
8. South Carolina: 1.8x
9. Iowa: 1.7x
10. Tennessee: 1.6x
