Director Sam Taylor-Johnson and stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson take on E.L. James' bestselling erotic novel, "Fifty Shades of Grey."

It's finally hereā€¦ After much anticipation, the first trailer for "Fifty Shades of Grey," based on the erotic novels by E L James, has hit-- and it's hot. The movie, from Focus Features, stars Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey, a (hot) young businessman, and Dakota Johnson as a (hot) college graduate Anastasia Steele. Things get spicy between them as he schools her in S&M.

Fans freaked out when Charlie Hunnam dropped out of the role of Christian Grey and then the film's release date had to be bumped to 2015.

The trailer, which was unveiled this morning on "The Today Show," features a new version of "Crazy in Love" by Beyoncé. "Fifty Shades of Grey" opens on February 13, 2015 -- just in time for Valentine's Day.

Based on a script by Kelly Marcel, the film is directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson and produced by Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti alongside E L James, the creator of the series. 

Note that the last 10 seconds of the trailer are NSFW (at least with the sound up).
