Let's not beat around the bush, as it were. Here is the first photo of Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey in the upcoming screen adaptation of E.L. James' bondage romp 50 Shades of Grey, and it's surprisingly vanilla.

Yes, Christian's in a car. He is not pulling anything onto his considerable length. He is not gritting his teeth, nor is he turning Anastasia into a sex puppet. There are no merengue goddesses anywhere in sight.

In fact, this is probably the least erotic image one could imagine for such highly lubricated source material, unless Christian's behind-the-wheel sex-scowl is intended to appeal to fans of Crash. (The Cronenberg one, duh. Also, NSFW.)

The film, which was greenlit back in October of 2012, has been quite slow-going with sneak peeks for its rabid fans. Heck, we might not even get to see a trailer before September.

Maybe it's all about pleasure delay? (IBTimes)
