Fifty Shades Of Grey Preview Highlights Christian Grey And Anastasia Steele’s Romance More Than Erotic Sex

Fifty Shades Of Grey won’t need to worry about an NC-17 rating let alone an R rating based on the movie preview that played at this week’s Las Vegas CinemaCon.

Universal Pictures rolled out its first look of the movie based on the erotic novel by E.L. James focusing on the romance between Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) rather than their naughty play behind closed doors.

The five-minute teaser showcased the lead characters first introduction in Christian’s office, his surprise appearance at the hardware store and drinks at the coffee shop.

“Hearts and flowers – that’s not who I am,” Christian says at one point.

Peeks inside their world of S&M were few. Anastasia sat in a red room, wearing a black blindfold. Another scene showed a horse hair soft whip brushing against her face. Christian only got in on the action when he pushed her up against a wall.

Universal assured the world’s theater owners in attendance at the convention that they shouldn’t “be afraid to book this one. You won’t be embarrassed and we’re all going to make a lot of money together.”

The theater owners will get what they want. Whether fans of the novels will be satisfied won’t be known until the movie premieres on Feb. 13, 2015.
