The second trailer for the highly anticipated movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey premiered during last night's airing of Scandal, and the trailer certainly does not disappoint. Following the teaser trailer that was released in July, this two and a half minute preview gives us more brooding, more stalking and a lot more sex.
The trailer shows glimpses of Anastasia Steele (played by Dakota Johnson) being introduced to Christian Grey's (played by Jamie Dornan) red room of pain, getting tied up on a bed, and glimpses of all kinds of whips and straps. We also see Christian showing up at the hardware store where Anastasia works, coming to Anastasia's rescue on a drunken night out, and we are even introduced to Anastasia's best friend and roommate, Kate Kavanagh (played by Eloise Mumford). And let's not forget the already noteworthy elevator kiss scene. The entire thing is set to Beyonce's "Haunted."
Last month, it was revealed that there would be no full-frontal shots of Dornan in the film, despite it's sexual themes.
"You want to appeal to as wide an audience as possible without grossing them out," he explained to The Guardian. "You don't want to make something gratuitous, and ugly, and graphic. There were contracts in place that said that viewers wouldn't be seeing my …todger."
While they finished filming the movie in February, Dornan and Johnson had to reunite last month for some reshoots. The pair explained that there is nothing sexy about shooting sex scenes.
"It's not like a romantic situation. It's more, like, technical and choreographed," Johnson said. "It's like more of a task."
