In what is likely one of the most steamily coveted and longed-for book into film adaptations in all of history, “Fifty Shades of Grey” has rightfully elicited a storm of excitement from readers and movie attendees alike. Ever since its massive success on the written page, rumors have circulated about “50 Shades” being transformed onto the silver screen. With casting complete and film production already reaching its final stages, these hot summer months seem to be a perfect time for fans to get their first look at the sexy franchise on camera.

With nationally covered fanfare, the first full “Fifty Shades of Grey” trailer — first being teased earlier this week by Beyonce on Instagram and her re-vamped cover of “Crazy in Love,” notes Today.com in their report — has been made public this morning via YouTube. Dakota Johnson as the beautiful, innocent Anastasia Steele paired alongside the striking, dominant Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey can be seen paired together for the first time (officially, at least). In less than an hour this Thursday, the trailer became a veritable sensation on social media sites like Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, where it began to surge in popularity and is now a top trending topic across national news.

Although the “50 Shades” movie teaser may be relatively brief, it nonetheless is just enough to certainly whet our appetites. As fellow readers of EL James’ book will know, viewers can catch their first glimpses of college student Ana in the trailer as she first meets wealthy CEO Christian — a tenuous encounter brought together by fate. The sexy Red Room of Pain is what has most people waiting on the edge of their seats for (and there is a momentary look at it), but it appears that we will have to wait until the “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie is released in February 2015 before catching a comprehensive look at that passionate epicenter.

Singer Beyonce, too, helped further sweep America into the “50 Shades” craze by recently taking to Instagram to confirm that she is indeed playing a “role” in the steamy film — by means of the upcoming flick’s soundtrack, that is. Her hit single from way back in 2003, “Crazy in Love,” is being recorded once again for the new adaptation. In what is being called a “special edition” of the song, it seems that Beyonce is just as excited as we — and likely Dakota Johnson — are to see some action. In just a short amount of time, news of Beyonce’s musical participation garnered over 400,000 “likes” online, so the support is definitely effervescent.

Have you seen the “Fifty Shades of Grey” trailer? What do you think of the first look at the hotly anticipated (pun intended) movie — are you excited as the rest of the general population? Although it is true that casting and preparation work for the sexy film has taken longer than anticipated, it finally appears that all of our fellow fans’ patience has paid off. This teaser is certainly keeping us keen for more from Christian Grey as we wait the last several months before the film hits U.S. theaters. Please stay tuned!
