Fifty Shades of Grey: Jamie Dornan brings tortured billionaire Christian Grey to life

While the teaser for Fifty Shades of Grey was a good start, the highly anticipated film’s full-length trailer is as intense as a trip to billiionaire Christian Grey’s “special room.”

Jamie Dornan’s Christian and Dakota Johnson’s Anastasia Steele finally meet as Beyoncé’s slowed-down version of “Crazy in Love” plays slowly in the background.

The two-and-a-half-minute trailer introduces shy literature student Anastasia, who meets Christian when she interviews him.

“So this is just an interview for the newspaper, I just have a couple of questions…” she starts.

In a voiceover, the young student is asked what the billionaire businessman Christian was like: “He was polite. Intense. Smart. Really intimidating…”

When asked to talk about herself, Anastasia admits: “There’s really not much to know about me, I mean, look at me.”

“I am”, Christian reveals.

The two begin a relationship – but Anastasia soon realises that Christian may not be telling her the whole truth about his private life.

“I am incapable of leaving you alone,” Christian later tells Anastasia before revealing to her: “I don’t do romance. My tastes are very singular, you wouldn’t understand.”

Based on E.L James’s bestselling novel, which originated as Twilight fanfiction, the film is set for release on Valentine’s Day 2015.

British director Sam Taylor-Wood is at the helm of the movie, which was pushed back to 2015 following the departure of Sons of Anarchy actor Charlie Hunnan, who dropped out of the lead role.

Prior to the trailer, fans have been offered glimpses of Christian through official stills and snaps from E L James’s Instagram account, and in December the author of the erotic trilogy shared a behind-the-scenes glimpse from the set of the film at the weekend.

“Action!” she captioned the snapshot, featuring a slate during the 1st roll, the 25th scene and the 1st take. Fifty Shades producer Dana Brunetti re-tweeted James’ pic, adding, “And we’re off.”
