There's still over a year until Fifty Shades of Grey hits theaters, but, like a certain suited stud, the film's producers know quite a bit about foreplay. Just in time for Valentine's Day, Universal Pictures has released the first poster featuring the dashing Christian Grey, a.k.a. Jamie Dornan. This totally beats the box of chocolates and red roses your non-fictional boyfriend was planning on getting you, right?
The artwork is stark, but powerful. Dornan — clad in a suit, of course — appears with his back to viewers, looking out on the cityscape below. The tagline reads: "Mr. Grey Will See You Now." You bet he will.
Again, the film itself won't open until Valentine's Day 2015 (sob). Still, we're taking this as a sign that Universal plans to work us into a frenzy right up until the premiere. Bring. It. On.
Keep an eye out for the so-hot poster in New York (Grand Street and Sixth Ave.); Los Angeles (Wilshire Boulevard and Gayley); Chicago (LaSalle and Hubbard); San Francisco (Mission Street and Sixth); and Seattle (First and Wall Street). BYO telescopic lens.
