After multiple stumbles, fans can finally feast their eyes on the full trailer.
This is your moment Fifty Shades of Grey fans – the trailer for Sam Taylor-Johnson’s steamy adaptation finally dropped on Thursday. This should ease any doubts about stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, who both look pretty perfect for their respective roles.
Story aside, the film looks visually polished.
But more than that, the trailer itself is remarkably tame. Set to a remix of Beyonce’s Crazy in Love (like the teaser from last week) the trailer includes Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey’s meeting and their deepening relationship, but it’s all firmly PG until the final three second. You guessed it, that’s when the crops and blindfolds come out and we’re reminded that this is the Fifty Shades of Grey and not just the latest soapy drama churned out by the Hollywood machine.
Also, kudos on the cinematography with this one. The first teaser didn’t really give away much about the overall look of the movie (other than the prevalent grey colors), but the trailer actually features some beautiful cinematography.
Will this trailer help fans warm up to Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey.
So all in all, it looks like Fifty Shades Of Grey is finding its footing after some initial stumbles. Back in 2013, Charlie Hunnam stepped down from the title role just one month after being cast, citing “scheduling issues”. Many have speculated about the real reason for his exit, after a Change.org petition calling for his replacement, gathered $87,000 signatures. Fifty Shades is out on Valentine's Day 2015.
