Official trailer for 'Fifty Shades of Grey' has arrived

"Enlighten me."

That's what Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) tells Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) in the first official trailer for the highly anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey.

The trailer, released Thursday, July 24, teases plenty of tidbits fans of the book have been waiting for.

The trailer starts out with a timid Anastasia meeting the “intimidated” but "brooding" Christian Grey, a billionaire business entrepreneur. It takes a while before the trailer reveals Christian’s face, and when it does, he never takes his eyes off Ms. Steele.

Filled with “first time” everything, the trailer focuses on Ana and Christian’s first meeting, first kiss, first dates, all leading up to the climax of the movie, Ana’s introduction to Christian’s secretive Red Room of Pain.

The hotly anticipated film adaptation of the bestselling book by E.L James, also stars Luke Grimes, Victor Rasuk, Jennifer Ehle, Eloise Mumford, Rita Ora, and Marcia Gay Harden as Grace Trevelyan Grey, Christian’s mother.

Fifty Shades of Grey is being directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson (Nowhere Boy) and produced by Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti alongside James, with the screenplay by Kelly Marcel, with revisions by Patrick Marber and Mark Bomback.

The trailer was first teased on Instagram by Beyonce, who made a special version of “Crazy in Love” for the movie.

Fifty Shades of Grey is scheduled to premiere on Feb. 13, 2015, just in time for Valentines.
