Trailer: ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’

It has finally arrived! The first full trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey has hit the web.

The trailer shows us Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele and Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey, in the long awaited release from Universal Pictures.

It also tells us that the film will include an exclusive version of Crazy in Love by Beyonce, which can be heard in the trailer.

Fifty Shades of Grey is the first book in a trilogy by E.L. James.

The trilogy has been described as ‘mummy porn’ and popularising a trend in bringing erotic literature to the mainstream.

When the book was released in 2011, it became the fastest selling paperback of all time, and the trilogy has sold over 100 million copies worldwide.

This has contributed to the high anticipation and popularity surrounding the film, and the eager anticipation for the trailers release.

The first official poster for the film was released in January, with the tagline ‘Mr. Grey will see you now’, and the first still of Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey was released on 18th June.

After originally being cast as Christian Grey, Charlie Hunnam left production shortly before filming began, and has recently described his upset at having to drop out of the film due to scheduling conflicts.

Fifty Shades of Grey is directed by Sam Taylor-Wood, and in addition to Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, the film also stars Jennifer Ehle as Anastasia’s mother Carla, and musician Rita Ora as Christian Grey’s sister Mia.

Fifty Shades of Grey will be released on Valentine’s Day 2015.

  1. A friend of mine read the entire trilogy a couple of months ago and her opinion looks a lot like the “mummy porn” description. I am not saying that I despise the genre but after reading several pages of other erotic books that followed E.L.James trilogy’s release, I actually think that the stories are not that addictive as some women say. Yes they’re intense but I still prefer to read a good book with an interesting story. I will defintely try to give more attention to your publications. Great work.
