'Fifty Shades of Grey's' breathless new trailer

Safe for work but just barely: The new 'Fifty Shades of Grey' trailer

The bestselling erotic novel "Fifty Shades of Grey" has taken another step toward its screen debut with a second full-length trailer. It features a breathless Anastasia, a brooding Christian and a lot of smoldering looks.

And a few, safe-for-work-but-just-barely shots of stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson getting intimate.

Sam Taylor-Johnson directs Dornan and Johnson in the adaptation of E.L. James' surprise hit, "Fifty Shades of Grey." The book, about a Seattle billionaire and the innocent college student he begins seeing, is known for its titillating sex, particularly its scenes of bondage and sado-masochism.

James' book was the first in a trilogy, followed by "Fifty Shades Darker" and "Fifty Shades Freed." Will the film be popular enough to spark a sequel? It opens Valentine's Day 2015.
