Beyonce's 13.9 million Instagram followers were the first to get a glimpse of the much anticipated film adaptation of the E.L. James bestselling erotic novel "Fifty Shades of Grey." On July 19, the 32-year old star posted a 15-second clip of the film at her Instagram page which shows Jamie Dorian as "Christian Grey" looking out of a window, followed by a shot of a woman's dress being lifted, then a shot of Grey caressing a woman's thigh, all against the musical backdrop of a sexier, slower rendition of her song, "Crazy I Love." So far, the sneak peek has garnered 327,000 "Likes."
The official trailer for the film is scheduled for release by Thursday, July 24, while the movie itself will hit the theater screens by February 13, 2015, in time for next year's Valentine's Day.
"Fifty Shades of Grey" is the first in a trilogy of books by E.L. James, with the second entitled "Fifty Shades Darker" and the third "Fifty Shades Freed," which all explore the complicated relationship between Anastacia Steele, a young woman who's just about to graduate from college, and Christian Grey, an intriguing, charming billionaire with a kinky fetish for rough sex.
"Fifty Shades of Grey," the movie, wrapped up production early this year. Aside from Jamie Dorian, it stars Dakota Johnson as "Anastasia Steele". It was directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson based on a screenplay written by Kelly Marcel with Patrick Marber and Mark Bomback.
There will be two versions of the movie - one, a "Rated-R," for the mainstream audience, and another, an "NC-17," for the die-hard fans of the explicit erotic novel.
Said producer Dana Brunetti in a previous talk with reporters, "What we're kind of hearing from the fans is they want it dirty...they want it as close as possible (to the book)...I always thought it would be really cool if we released the 'R' version, and then we had an 'NC-17' version that we released a few weeks later. Everybody could go and enjoy the 'R' version, and then if they really wanted to see it again and get a little bit more gritty with it then we have that 'NC-17' version out there as well. That is my idea, but the fans and the studio will benefit from the double dip. We do not want this film to be seen as mommy porn - we want to keep it elevated, but also give the fans what they want."
Back in March, another Beyonce song, "Haunted," was used as scoring for an earlier teaser exclusive for theater owners and media at the just concluded CinemaCon.
