With the release of the trailer of "Fifty Shades of Grey" on Thursday, Fox News calls it "racy." Fans of the series immediately took to Twitter to react to the trailer’s release. Some raved about the movie that will be in theater on Valentine's Day 2015, while others seemed hesitant to embrace the movie based on the bestselling erotic novel by E.L. James. If the response is overwhelmingly sarcastic after seeing the trailer, it will probably be the same after the movie is in theater next year.
The highly anticipated trailer was shown today on NBC's "Today" show where co-host Suvannah Guthrie interviewed the stars of the movie, Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dorman. In case you are not familiar with Johnson, she is the daughter of her celebrity parents, Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson. She admitted she doesn't wanst her parents to see the movie. The pair, who play leads Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, confirmed that the full trailer is much racier than what could be shown on morning television. Gurthie called attention to Beyonce's 2003 hit "Crazy in Love" for the film.
On Friday, Natalie Morales, also co-host of "Today" will get an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the movie set, where she’ll talk with cast members as well as the best-selling trilogy’s author, E.L. James, on location.
The trailer was also shown on ABC's "The View" where the ladies discussed it and even brought executive producer, Bill Geddie into the conversation. However, the stars of the movie were not present, and only parts of the trailer that were appropriate for morning television were shown. Considering the book’s sexual content, the trailer is relatively mild, except for the last few seconds, which includes an artful montage of some of the film’s raunchier scenes.
The trailer shown on the "Today" show and "The View" was limited. You can see a longer version of the trailer of "Fifty Shades of Grey" by clicking on the video above.
