‘Fifty Shades of Grey': Five things to expect from the erotic drama.

If you’re looking for a preview of “50 Shades of Grey” outside the trailers, R&B star the Weeknd has provided one in the form of his video for “Earned It.” The song is the lead single to the soundtrack and finds the crooner taking on the film’s themes with scantily clad burlesque dancers moving seductively around him, just moments before star Dakota Johnson is tied up and hoisted above the stage he’s on.Yes, that tampon scene — the one where Christian removes Ana’s tampon before having sex — will not be seen on the big screen, according to the film’s director, Sam Taylor-Johnson.We’re geared up for Jamie Dornan’s sexy turn as Christian Grey in the highly anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie hitting theaters on Valentine’s Day.

Taylor-Johnson worked with screenwriter Kelly Marcel to make the raunchier scenes work visually. “On the early draft, there was a sense that there was way too much sex,” she said in the interview. “The story, of course, is of equal importance. Set in the turbulent aftermath of the English Civil War, King Charles II’s tyrannical rule has led to a climate of violence and fear in England and the American colonies. We’ve known the basic outline of the film for a while now — model-turned-actor Jamie Dornan plays the kinky billionaire Christian Grey, while Dakota Johnson plays his demure love interest, college student Anastasia Steele — but here are some more recent revelations about the big-screen bodice ripper. (Don’t worry, no spoilers here.) Pop diva Beyonce, who knows a thing or two about setting hearts aflutter, is contributing some of her smoldering songs to the “Fifty Shades” soundtrack. Along with nabbing Johnson, the Weeknd procured “50 Shades” director Sam Taylor-Johnson to direct and cinematographer Seamus McGarvey to help out with shots. In addition to the Weeknd, the soundtrack will feature Sia, the Rolling Stones, Frank Sinatra, Beyonce, Annie Lennox, as well as new material from Ellie Goulding and Jessie Ware.

Pattinson’s performance as Edward in the “Twilight” films helped inspire James to write “Fifty Shades,” which has sold 100 million copies worldwide. “I’ve been around Rob long enough to see what it’s been like for him,” Dornan says in the cover story from this week’s issue of Variety. “I don’t know if it’s been a benefit to witness that. At least one notorious scene from the book — let’s just say it involves a feminine hygiene product — wasn’t shot for the film. “It was never even discussed,” Taylor-Johnson told Variety. The actor told the Guardian in November, “There were contracts in place that said that viewers wouldn’t be seeing my, um ….” The interviewer then clarified which body part Dornan was referring to, and it’s the one you’re thinking of. Fortunately for titillation-minded viewers, Taylor-Johnson told The Times the movie is “dirty but classy” and “feels pretty balanced: a nipple of hers, a butt cheek of his.” After previous plans for Charlie Hunnam to play Grey fell through, Dornan landed the part on the strength of his chemistry with Johnson.

The paparazzi has been trailing him around in London, where he lives with his wife Amelia Warner and 1-year-old daughter. “In London, they follow you around and you try to lose them, which is not a comfortable thing if you have a baby in the back of your car,” Dornan says. “If I have a bike and I’m by myself, I can lose them, especially if they are on foot or on a moped.” Dornan spent Golden Globes weekend in Los Angeles, where he met some of his new admirers. “I’m astonished at how many people are telling me my life is going to change,” he says. “Everyone that I meet, especially in L.A. Everyone has been saying that to me, ‘Are you ready?’ I don’t have a good answer to that, because I don’t know what I’m meant to be ready for.
