The “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie will open on Valentine's day in 2015. The 2:34 film trailer was released on July 24, 2014. It stars, Dakota Johnson (Anastasia Steele) & Jamie Dornan (Christian Grey). The book is part of a trilogy that has sold $100 million copies worldwide. When it was announced that the book was being made into a film. Fans scrutinized every aspect of the forth coming production from the writer, director & to who should play Christian Grey.

The trailer has been widely criticized & ripped apart on the internet by critics & fans. In two minutes, we heard a slowed down version of Beyonce's hit song “Crazy in Love.” Her legion of fans got a chance to hear a totally different approach to a song that helps the trailer rise from cold to hot.

Ana Steele is a literature student who interviews a rich man named Christian Grey who introduces her to a world of power & control. In the book, Ana is a virgin when she meets him. Their first introduction in his office, frightens & excites her at the same time. Why does she meet up with him again? Well, she “drunk dials” him because her fear pushes toward curiosity. That is satisfied when Christian pushes her back in that elevator & they kiss for the first time.

What can the film show beyond that first kiss? E.L. James who wrote the book, claims that the sex scenes will not be watered down in the movie. So, beyond the plane rides & the money thrown around by Christian. We might see inside the “red room” where all the bondage, whipping & tying up takes place. He has to introduce all of this to Ana first, after she trusts him completely.

The book is an erotic novel seen through the eyes of a naïve college co-ed. Christian opens up her isolated life & what we don't see in the trailer is the bathtub scene, dirty talk, spanking, drunk dialing & of course the “grey tie” he bounds her with, which is pictured on the front cover of the book. The big question is? How far will the filmmakers go to satisfy fans of the book?
