Smokin' hot Fifty Shades Of Grey trailer released

The trailer for highly-anticipated film Fifty Shades Of Grey was released on Thursday, and as one might expect, it was smokin' hot.

The movie is based on writer E.L. James' erotic romance best-seller of the same name. 

The book, which is part one of a trilogy, has been translated into 50 languages and sold more than 70 million copies worldwide. 

The story revolves around manipulative billionaire Christian Grey and naive Anastasia​ Steele, whom Grey introduces to the world of kinky sex, S&M and triple X-rated bedroom “contract” games.

Northern Irishman Jamie Dornan plays Grey, while US actress Dakota Johnson plays Steele.

The tension was almost palatable at the tail end of the trailer when Grey unveiled his Red Room of Pain.

A stripped-down version of Beyonce's 2003 hit Crazy In Love played in between the dialogue and helped drive the tension further up a notch.

The International Business Times reported that the trailer was "too-hot-for-morning-TV", with NBC playing only a shortened version on its Today show.
