Beyonce teases ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ trailer on Instagram
Pop diva Beyonce is certainly no stranger to getting folks hot and bothered, and she did so once again by posting a teaser for the eagerly anticipated erotic drama “Fifty Shades of Grey” on her Instagram account over the weekend.
The teaser suggests the singer’s music will be used in the film and its marketing campaign. The 15-second clip is set to what sounds like a smoldering, slowed-down version of her hit 2003 song “Crazy in Love” and shows flashes of provocative imagery: a sharp-suited silhouette, a finger tapping, a hand pulling up a dress, a key unlocking a door.
The teaser promises a full trailer to be released Thursday.
Adapted from E.L. James’ wildly popular 2011 novel, which has been described as “mommy porn,” “Fifty Shades” tells the story of virginal college student Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), the dashing, domineering billionaire who takes an interest in her.
Sam Taylor-Johnson (“Nowhere Boy”) is directing from a script by Kelly Marcel (“Saving Mr. Banks”).
“Fifty Shades of Grey” is scheduled for release on Valentine’s Day from Universal Pictures and Focus Features.
