Irish actor Jamie Dornan is already causing a stir after Universal Pictures released the first poster for the “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie.
The promo poster features a rear view shot of Dornan, cast as the sadistic Christian Grey, staring out an office window, and is already causing stir on the internet.
Yahoo reports that Dornan takes center stage in the first movie poster for the highly-anticipated film Fifty Shades of Grey which recounts an S&M relationship between a businessman and a young woman.
The website reports that the movie’s official Twitter page tweeted on Friday: “Mr. Grey will see you now/ Start the countdown to Valentine’s Day 2015! #FiftyShades #ChristianGrey.”
The report says that the teaser poster sees Dornan show off his backside as he peers outside a window from his office.
The 31-year-old actor, from the same County Down town as Rory McIlroy, has his hands in his pockets with the headline “MR. GREY WILL SEE YOU NOW” written above him.
County-Down born Dornan plays the tormented Christian Grey opposite Dakota Johnson’s Anastasia Steele in the movie.
The pair have been photographed several times together while filming scenes from the erotic novel in Vancouver.
Already the co-stars have filmed the scenes when Grey gifts the doe-eyed and innocent Steele with a new car and also the famous hardware scene.
Johnson was spotted having one-on-one discussions with director Sam Taylor-Johnson at the time of the hardware scene.
Some of the steamy scenes in the book will be toned down for the movie.
Producer Michael De Luca revealed: “We’re very conscious of not making anything gratuitous or exploitive while being faithful to the stories of the book and to the fans of the book.
“Obviously the film can’t be as explicit as the book,” he added. “A picture is worth a 1000 words. So to be erotic onscreen means I think an image is going to have way more power than reading the words on a page.”
