Universal has shifted the release date for "50 Shades of Grey" to Feb. 13, 2015.
Highly anticipated Focus Features pic had been set for release on Aug. 1, 2014.
Charlie Hunnam unexpectedly dropped out of the project after being cast as Christian Grey. Two weeks later, Jamie Dornan was cast in his place.
A few days after Dornan's casting, Univeral and Focus announced they were moving production back from mid-November to early December.
