The '50 Shades of Grey' Trailer Has Arrived and It Is Glorious
byKaitlin StanfordJul 25, 2014
Well, ladies, it's finally here — the moment we've all been waiting for since rumors of a "50 Shades of Grey" movie were first made official, sending us all into fits of giddy hysteria.
Our first real glimpse of the "50 Shades" film adaptation — starring Dakota Johnson and the foxy Jamie Dornon — has arrived. And let's just cut to the chase here, it is everything we hoped it would be: smoldering looks, intense elevator kisses, and just enough shirtless Mr. Grey to satisfy us (for now). Oh, Jamie Dornan, we are so into you.
The world got its first look at the steamy trailer on the TODAY show yesterday morning, but even that was a watered-down version of the real thing, to comply with morning show standards.
The full, un-censored trailer was later released online yesterday, and let's be honest, it's the only one you should really watch. News of its release prompted women everywhere to simultaneously freak out, sneaking peeks on our phones on the way to work (and then again at our desks at work when no one was looking).
In case you missed it, or if like us, you wouldn't mind a repeat viewing (or two, or three ...) here it is, in all its glory:
Sigh. We don't know about you, but that was the fastest two minutes and thirty seconds we've ever experienced. (Made even better by Beyoncé's stripped down version of "Crazy in Love," which was a nice surprise.) It also leaves us wondering many things: Namely, will Anastasia Steele embarrass us with the same cringe-worthy antics she does in the book, or is this a more controlled, slightly less-"New Girl" version of the character? Cut all that ridiculous internal dialogue, bring us more shirtless Christian, and this movie may be even better than the books.
But for now, here's the only thing really matters: Valentine's Day 2015, you've got plans. Mark your calendars.
