‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Trailer Arrives Online

On Thursday morning, Universal Studios debuted its first trailer for “Fifty Shades of Grey,” the highly anticipated film based on the erotic novels by E.L. James.

The movie stars Jamie Dornan (who appears sans shirt) as Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson as his inexperienced lover Anastasia Steele.

The trailer, featuring a remix of Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love,” starts off very innocently before teasing a few sex and bondage scenes at the end, including the image above of Johnson (the daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith) blindfolded and naked.

The film, directed by Sam Taylor Johnson, has not been rated but it would be surprising if the MPAA gave it anything below an R-rating, given the graphic sex in the novels.

The two-and-a-half minute trailer was exclusively unveiled on NBC’s “Today” Thursday morning.

Produced by Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti, “Fifty Shades of Grey” opens on Valentine’s Day 2015.

    I can’t stand the song but that’s because Beyonce sucks and this sounds like she has gas. But as a fan of the books, the trailer is okay. We shall see!

    It’s “sans shirt”. It’s French for ‘without’. There are other languages in the world aside of American English, y’know!
