After a brief tease yesterday, the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer has been released and is sure to please!
Universal Pictures is giving fans a look at the spicy chemistry between stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson in the first trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey! Take a look for yourself above.
The trailer, which is set with a slowed down version of Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love,” begins with Anastasia’s and Christian’s first meeting when she interviews him. Johnson perfectly pulls off the shy Anastasia while if anyone doubted Dornan’s ability, he’s mastered a mysterious Christian Grey.
A minute into the trailer fans can see Christian’s first break of control when he kisses Anastasia in an elevator. From there it gets much more spicy when Christian reveals his specific tastes. It’s interesting to see how the movie will tastefully handle staying true to the novel.
Fifty Shades of Grey is expected to receive a PG-13 or R rating, meaning much of the dirty content seen in the book won’t make it to the film unless there’s tricky uses of shadows.
As for Beyoncé’s involvement, for right now we don’t know what her contributions to the film are beyond this new version of “Crazy in Love.” Has she added a couple of her raunchy songs to the project?
Earlier this year the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy hit a new record of selling over 100 million copies. The author E.L. James has now joined the sales ranks of other authors such as J.K. Rowling with the Harry Potter series and Stephanie Meyer with the Twilight series (Fifty started off as a fan fiction version of the latter).
Fifty Shades of Grey will premiere in the U.S. on Valentine’s Day in 2015.
