Fifty Shades of Grey fans are getting their first tiny glimpse of what the upcoming film–due out on Valentine’s Day 2015–will entail. A new promotional poster, featuring a backwards Christian Grey overlooking a view of Seattle from his office. Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey looks dapper–for a backwards guy, anyway–in a finely tailored suit. The text on the poster reads, “Mr. Grey Will See You Now.”
The erotic drama is based upon author E.L. James’s novel, and stars, in addition to Dornan, Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele. Eloise Mumford plays Anastasia’s best friend Kate Kavanagh and Jennifer Ehle plays her mother, Carla. Max Martini plays Christian Grey’s bodyguard and Marcia Gay Harden plays his adoptive mother, Dr. Grace Trevelyan Grey.
Fans are no doubt bemoaning the fact that they still have more than a year until this film hits theaters, but will likely cling to this tiny tidbit of information and promotion the way housewives clung to the sexy scenes in–oh, wait. That’s what this film is based on.
Fifty Shades of Grey announced the release of this new poster via their Twitter account, and since then it has appeared it countless places across the internet.

At least that’s what the naysaying critics say about their idea of the book-to-film translation of Fifty Shades of Grey.
In the meantime fans of the books will simply have to wait until the next little fish is dangled above them on a string. Maybe it will be a new trailer or a sound byte from one of those secret fetish rooms.
