In 2012 Smash Pictures was sued by Universal Studios over the film Fifty Shades of Grey: A XXX Adaptation. Universal claimed that the film was not made as a parody, but rather a direct interpretation of the Fifty Shades of Grey book and Fifty Shades Darker. Smash Pictures had previously stated that they intended to make the pornographic movie faithful to the books. In the lawsuit, Universal requested that they receive an injunction as well as the film's profits and damages.
