Well alright Christian Grey.
For all those folks who have gotten hot and bothered while reading the Fifty Shades series, get ready for some S&M on the big screen as the first installment gears up for its Valentine's Day 2015 release. Earlier today, the trailer for Fifty Shades Of Grey, which stars Dakota Johnson (as Anastasia) and Jamie Dornan (as Christian Grey), made its debut and it features Beyoncé singing a revamped, seductive version of her 2003 hit "Crazy In Love."
In case you need a refresher, 50 Shades is about a literature student Anastasia Steele, whose life changes forever when she meets a handsome, tormented billionaire by the name of Christian Grey. It doesn't take long before the two begin a sexual relationship involving bondage/discipline, dominance/submission, and sadism. Meanwhile Anastasia is constantly fighting for her self-identity and self-worth after each encounter.
The book was originally self-published as an e-book and print-on-demand, however its popularity skyrocketed and its publishing rights were acquired in 2012. The entire series has sold over 100 million copies worldwide and in 2013, the book's author, E.L. James made Forbes' Top Earning authors list with estimated earnings of $93 million that year.
