We imagine Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan are doin' a little one of these right about now...

...because Variety reports (opens in new tab) that Fifty Shades of Grey (opens in new tab) has just shattered the previous record and become Universal's most successful R-rated movie ever. 

The film has made over $338 million internationally to date, and is slated to hit $500 million next week. Maybe this will finally put an end to all those rumors about director Sam Taylor-Johnson and Jamie Dornan wanting to leave the franchise (opens in new tab)? Because creative differences aside, $500 million is nothing to sneeze at. We're sure Christian Grey would agree.
