Are you sitting comfortably? New Fifty Shades tease is the raciest yet


Those who worried that Fifty Shades of Grey's 15 certificate status would stifle its sexiness will be reassured by the latest tease from film producers.

In a new extended trailer for the big-screen adaptation of EL James' erotic bestseller released this week, things are definitely heading towards the steamier end of prurience. 

The film's stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson (Christian Grey and Anastasia Steel) are seen cavorting together in various stages of sweatiness and undress. 

50 Shades

Christian Grey's muscle-bound form is in ample evidence, as are glimpses of a melting ice cube, a blindfold and a tassel whip that hint towards the story's core BDSM element. 

This newest trailer also reveals the softer side to the enigmatic Mr Grey's personality. He is seen looking on admiringly as Anastasia twirls around a room in a pink dress, with her telling him, "You said you didn't do romance... "

Anastasia is also seen meeting Christian's family in the clip, which aired during the US ad-break for Suits this week. 

50 Shades

Jamie, 32, revealed that he had an employed an S&M expert - plus accompanying submissive - to show him the ropes of sadomasochist arousal, in order to prepare for the iconic role. 

"It’s such a big part of the character that I wanted to know what I was doing," he told Shortlist magazine. "This guy came along with his submissive, I sat in the corner with a beer and watched. My driver was on the other side of the door, God knows what he thought."

But he previously seemed to suggest the film wouldn't be that explicit, saying: "You want to appeal to as wide an audience as possible without grossing them out. You don’t want to make something gratuitous, and ugly, and graphic."

Beyonce's sultry Crazy in Love remix can also be heard in the new trailer. The film, directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson, comes out on 13 February in the UK. Come take a look at what's in store, below:
