Published by Pippa Day

The titillating debut trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey has been released – and it won’t disappoint fans of the books.

Since Beyoncé posted a short teaser for Fifty Shades of Grey earlier this week, fans have been eagerly awaiting the full trailer-  which has just been posted online today.

The trailer begins with Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey’s first meeting, accompanied by a breathy rendition of Beyoncé’s ‘Crazy in Love’ which compliments the movie clips perfectly (uhh ohhh). As the shy literature student interviews the business magnate Grey, we have to wait a whole 45 seconds before we get to see his face – but it only gets wilder from there.

His sumptuous apartment, helicopter ‘Charlie Tango’ and grand piano can all be seen in the trailer, suggesting that the film will stay close to its source material. All Grey’s lines are laced with innuendo, from”I exercise control in all things Miss Steele,” to “I’m incapable of leaving you alone,” and even “my tastes are very… singular”.

It looks like audiences will be getting all the raunchiness promised by director Sam Taylor-Johnson as blindfolds, whips and handcuffs can all be glimpsed in a fast montage at the end of the trailer.

Starring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, the movie will be released on February 13 next year, just in time for Valentines Day.

Based on the best-selling novel by E. L. James, which became a literary sensation back in 2011, the movie revolves around the affair between 27-year-old billionaire Christian Grey and literature student Anastasia Steele. The ‘Fifty Shades’ book trilogy has sold more than 70 million copies worldwide, and the first installment is the fastest selling paperback of all time.
