Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele gets into way more than she could have possibly imagined after meeting Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey in the first Fifty Shades of Grey trailer from Universal Studios.
Forget traditional romance and courting rituals as Anastasia and Grey casually meet and eventually hook up in an elevator, leading to the older businessman — despite Dornan looking the same age as Johnson — leading the young college student down an erotic path into his own unconventional desires. The best taste of this path is glimpsed with a bound Anastasia on a bed in the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer’s final frame.
The Internet is already abuzz with complaints about Johnson being too old for Anastasia and Dornan not being hot or seductive enough as Grey. Those are the fans speaking; non-fans are rolling their eyes.
Sam Taylor-Johnson directs the Fifty Shades of Grey movie based on the bestselling book by E.L. James that was originally conceived as Twilight fan-fiction. It is set to woo female audiences in celebration of Valentine’s Day next year on its February 13 release date.
