First trailer for Sam Taylor-Johnson's Fifty Shades of Grey teases the kink

Jul. 24, 2014by: Jesse Giroux

Break out the whips and handcuffs: the first trailer for FIFTY SHADES OF GREY has been released, giving us a good look at Sam Taylor-Johnson's adaptation of the E.L. James erotic romance novel starring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan. Apparently the trailer was too hot for NBC's The Today Show, since a sanitized version also aired on the show this morning. While there isn't anything too raunchy in this first trailer, the last couple of seconds are probably NSFW.

"I don't do romance."

Fans of the book have been very vocal about Jamie Dornan playing Christian Grey, and he does come off as a little wooden and bland in the trailer. In fact, for a movie featuring elements of BDSM, the trailer is kind of boring. However, this is only the first trailer, so things might heat up in future looks at the upcoming film. Do you have any interest at all in seeing FIFTY SHADES OF GREY after watching the trailer?

FIFTY SHADES OF GREY also stars Marcia Gay Harden, Vicktor Rasuk, Max Martini, Jennifer Ehle, and Callum Keith Rennie, and it will be in theaters on February 13, 2015.

As someone who read the book, this trailer has got me very excited for the movie. Jamie Dornan definitely has the perfect look as Christian Grey and the wooden/bland thing is actually pretty much what Christian Grey is until he gets into the sex stuff so Jamie's performance is quite accurate.

Honestly, this trailer wasn't half bad, I was expecting a lot worse. There's now a 10 to 15% chance that I'll actually see this. Don't get me wrong, it still looks vaguely stupid, just not completely stupid like I was expecting.

Hmmm... How convenient.

They briefly showed the S&M stuff at the end.

What's the word for the anti-over-hype? That's what this movie is getting. Since its announcement, people have saying that it'll be the worst movie ever. By the time it gets released, people's expectations will be so low that it won't fulfill them. The trailer did seem sexy enough for me. I'd say that the movie will be, at worst, a forgettable SECRETARY rip-off.

What the fuck?

This is a rip off of secretary, although from the looks of it a bland ripoff with no shred of soul to it. What a hunk of shit. The guys name is even Gray? Come the fuck on, Hollywood! Secretary is fantastic and anyone even thinking that this might interest them should save their $10 and buy Secretary instead.

big deal

Saw the trailer, never read the book, didn't care one way about the film. Looks like a meh movie for a niche audience.

Although I do love the bashing comments below from people this movie isn't intended for. You post on a movie site that mainly focuses on movies intended for men, OF COURSE YOU'RE NOT GOING TO LIKE THIS FILM YOU RETARDS!

So I read the first book that this is based on. It was absolutely horrible and I regret the week I spent reading it. The sex is nothing special and the fact that the author is too proper to use the word "ass" instead of "fanny" should be an indication of how kinky the sex gets in this story. Spoiler alert, not very.
Sad thing is, there is a porn parody made of this book which a) has way better acting, b) way better sex, and c) is way more compelling of a story than the book or this movie

I shit you not, it's the first porn that I actually sat down and legit watched beginning to end. I highly recommend it.

Oh yes, there will be bean flicking...

I can already hear the slow steady hum of thousands of bored housewives flicking their beans in unison.

Smart move, Charlie Hunnam

not even Liam Neeson-level charisma could save these characters and the two actors they chose don't have a chance. I suspect this will make a ton of $$$ but anyone with any taste will stay way the hell away.

I also see an AWFULLY GOOD column coming . . .

The dialogue and spelling errors in the book is atrocious. Since it's also a February release, I see they've kept up with the poor production as well.

Oh my god its worse than I thought

and I didn't think that was possible. We all know that this book started off as a piece of fan fiction built upon the twilight series don't we? That's not a lie and should tell you how bad most women's taste in literature (and teh eventual success of this movie no matter how bad its ratings will be) show just how easily they are swayed.

Poor, poor down-voting....

I truly feel sorry for the person spending time down-voting people who dislike this movie. Your either A, a teenage girl who feels badly acted trailers for badly written novels make for compelling cinema or B, a 40-50 year old obese woman who feels this material makes up for the loss of any normal resemblance of an actual sex life...

An undesirable shut-in of a woman writes Twilight fan fiction about Stephanie Meyer's characters BDSM'ing the holy hell out of each other and boning until their ears bleed. Then she changes the names, gets a publishing deal, sells millions, makes millions more and now there's going to be a movie.
There is officially no god.

I read the books.The first was okay.The other two sucked.I hoped it would be different from other romance novels,but it's not.The author just added kink.I heard about the sex in it so I decided to read it.It's the typical fantasy in which a woman gets the hot man of her dreams.This will obviously get some cash at the box office and then get two more sequels.

OK, so I upvoted two comments at -8, and they immediately went to -16. So either people are actively downvoting everyone, or there's definitely a bug.

I'm a bit disturbed by the way the dialogue is so overtly a nod to its origin as Twilight fan-fiction. "You should stay away from me." "You wouldn't understand." Sigh.

I just don't get it. You can find far more satisfying erotica on cable or at an adult store. This looks like a WB show with some BDSM thrown in clumsily at the end. As a woman, I fail to find this whole phenomenon enlightening or empowering in any way. LAME.

It looks like a passable flick.

But it would have been so much better if they could have convinced Emma Watson to star.

It's actually very interesting subject matter. The psychological aspects of a D/S relationship are fascinating.....

ya, only women and men who are into that lifestyle who have read the book find it extremely laughable and say it is NOTHING!!!!! like how it is in real life. And that is because it was written as twilight fan fiction by an obese woman living in her basement. (sigh who is now filthy fkin rich)

If you are disappointed that you wont get to see implied scenes of Emma Watson having various objects put up her bum then I wouldn't want to be around you when you are watching your Harry Potter movies.

Neither of the leads are sexy.

List the first bunch of quips that come to mind:
Rape and torture at its most romantic!
Why didn't it say "Cumming Soon" at the end?
