Generally - the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Which has got to be a proper kick in the nuts for poor Charlie Hunnam.
Ian Somerhalder and Matt Bomer campaigners are still slightly miffed (but they were always going to be. EL James did say it wasn't going to them, ages ago. Pay attention. You only have yourselves to blame.)
Here's what the world is thinking. As always - Lena Dunham says what we're thinking (we might as well go home. Lean speaks for the group).
I'm a monstrous @JamieDornan1 fan. Wasn't allowed to be attracted to him on The Fall bc he played a sexmurderer. 50 Shades is my big chance!— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) October 24, 2013
