Early reports show that the E.L. James adaptation, despite rotten reviews, could zoom to record-breaking sales this weekend.

The Mel Gibson-directed “The Passion of the Christ” took in $83.8 million over its opening weekend, but based on a Friday night take of $31 million, “Fifty Shades” could be poised to top $90 million in its first weekend, Deadline reported Saturday.
