FIFTY SHADES OF GREY Trailer and Images: Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan Get Kinky

Focus Features and Universal Pictures have released the first Fifty Shades of Grey trailer and images for director Sam Taylor-Johnson’s (Nowhere Boy) adaptation of the provocative E.L. James book.  The story revolves around Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and her introduction to a whole new world of sexual discovery and risqué activities in the hands of billionaire Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan).  The trailer looks like it could easily be for a softcore porn on Cinemax or a serial killer thriller (though maybe I’m getting the latter vibe because I know Dornan from The Fall), and it gets so ridiculous that you just have to laugh.  I assume the camp is part of its charm, and I will say that visually Taylor-Johnson has found a rather striking tone for the pic.  Regardless of what those unfamiliar with James’ source material might think, the film is probably going to make fans (and Focus/Universal) very happy.

Hit the jump to watch the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer.  The film also stars Marcia Gay Harden, Jennifer Ehle, Max Martini, Luke Grimes, Rita Ora, Eloise Mumford, Dylan Neal, Victor Rasuk, and Callum Keith RennieFifty Shades of Grey opens in theaters on February 14, 2015.
