How did we not see this coming?
Um... Beyonce’s music in Fifty Shades of Grey? This will be a source of internal conflict, we can tell. The singer shared a new, darker remix of Crazy in Love on Instagram, featured in a special teaser for the upcoming film. It's a short video and doesn't really show anything fans didn't already know about the story, but a bigger, better trailer is coming on Thursday.
Beyonce's music in Fifty Shades of Grey? Yes, we can totally see this happening.
The clip is just a few seconds of Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson’s arms and legs, as well as shots of Dornan, in full Christian Grey garb, looking out at a city skyline with his back to the camera. The clip falls in line with other promotional materials for the books and film – minimal, slow and very... grey. So what you’d expect out of E. L. James' erotic fantasy, really.
The full trailer It’s a big moment for Fifty Shades fans, who have been waiting for this trailer through numerous production stumbles and delays, including the exit of Charlie Hunnam, who was originally cast to play Christian Grey, as well as the postponed release. The movie was originally set to premiere this summer, will actually be released on Valentine’s Day 2015. The question is, would Fifty Shades make for a very romantic V Day date?
Take a look back at October's inaugural event.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
