The first full trailer of the most awaited movie of the year Fifty Shades of Grey, which features Jamie Dornan as the intimidating Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson as the naive virgin Anastasia Steele, has finally been released.
The trailer offers a sexy glimpse into the sadomasochism world of the dashing and successful entrepreneur Grey, who is smitten by college student Ana. It also features Grey's 'red room of pain'.
But has the trailer lived up to the best seller novel by EL James?
Soon after the trailer release, fans and critics are divided over the sex appeal of the trailer while many raised eyebrows over the casting of Dornan and Johnson.
The Daily Telegraph's television critic Robbie Collin found the trailer "as arousing as week-old meat loaf".
"I'm still not entirely sure which the sexy bits are supposed to be," he wrote in the Sydney Morning Herald.
Touted as the most anticipated movie of the year, the Sam Taylor-Johnson directed movie will premiere on 14 February, 2015.
Bellow are some fan reactions after the trailer release.
Crazy in Love by Beyonce and Jay-Z is an undeniable classic yet the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer manages to bring it down.

I know its too early for me to judge a 2:14mins trailer. But it didnt give me that feeling when I was readin the book. #FiftyShadesTrailer

The #FiftyShadesTrailer looks like 50 shades of boring. Its like a 90s Calvin Klein Obsession ad. I was waiting for someone to say Obsession

I can't tell if the #FiftyShadesTrailer made me want to see the movie or if I just haven't gotten laid in a while.
