The first trailer showing Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson playing the lead characters in Fifty Shades Of Grey has been released.
Fans of the EL James book described the clip, which doesn’t feature Dornan as Christian Grey until halfway through, as “intense” and “amazing” on Twitter.
British actor and model Dornan was handed the role after Sons Of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam brought out due to work commitments.
The trailer begins with Anastasia being led into Christian Grey’s corporate office, where she’s later seduced by him within the company lift.
Set for an exclusive version of Beyonce’s “Crazy Right Now”, the trailer goes on to show the vulnerable Anastasia being led into Christian Grey’s huge cupboard full of S&M items for example whips and chains.
For that first 50 seconds, viewers don’t quite get a complete view of the seductive, sexy and enigmatic CEO of Grey Enterprises Holdings, Inc., Christian Grey. He drifts within an out of shots; his face is mysteriously blurred in other people.
It’s the first meeting between Ana Steele (played by Dakota Johnson, daughter of 80s hottie Don Johnson) and Grey, the main one in which Ana conducts an awkward newspaper interview using the 27-year-old billionaire.
Christian turns the tables on Ana, asking her to inform him about herself.
Dornan and Johnson lead the cast, that also includes Rita Ora as Christian’s sister Mia and Jennifer Ehle as Anastasia’s mother Carla.
The Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy has sold over 100 million copies, which makes it one of the biggest and fastest-selling book series of in history.
