Have you seen the trailer for Fifty Shades Of Grey yet?
Since its release last week it’s had more than 12 million views and has created worldwide controversy.
You can see the trailer here -
The big screen adaptation of EL James’ hit erotic novel stars Northern Ireland hunk Jamie Dornan as sexy billionaire Christian Grey and Melanie Griffith’s daughter Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele – the college student he seduces, and introduces to the world of sadomasochism.
The trailer, lasting two minutes and 25 seconds, opens with a nervous Anastasia going to Christian’s office to interview him, but he seems more interested in her.
A voiceover hears her later describing him to her friend as “intense” and “intimidating”.
Viewers of the online clip then see their romance unfold, with the couple kissing passionately in a lift to the soundtrack of a new recording of Crazy In Love by Beyonce.
But their budding romance takes a dark twist as Christian is heard telling Anastasia “I don’t do romance... my tastes are very singular”, as a topless Dornan strides over to a drawer and takes out a blindfold.
“Enlighten me then,” she responds, and the trailer ends with Christian unlocking his dungeon and a titillating montage of shots involving whips, robes and blindfolds.
The final shot is of Anastasia, blindfolded, naked and tied to a bed, in the throes of ecstasy.
The trailer, which was causing a buzz online within minutes of its release, teases: “This Valentine’s Day... the worldwide phenomenon... comes to life.”
Fifty Shades – which has been directed by Nowhere Boy’s Sam Taylor-Johnson – is released on February 14 next year.
