Jamie Dornan, Fifty Shades of Grey star and Academy Award winner? If you believe the screenwriter of the upcoming film, he should soon go by that name.

Kelly Marcel, who penned the upcoming Fifty Shades adaptation of E.L. James' erotic novel, says Dornan's performance is, without a doubt, Oscar worthy.

"Apparently Jamie is great at being soft and hard at the same time," Marcel said, stealing a phrase from Fifty Shades. "Which is hard to do for an actor!"

Dornan's presence and versatility as the film's lead is so impressive that it deserves an award, according to Marcel, who added, "He's going to get an Oscar!"

It's hard to tell if she's serious, but she's clearly a big fan.

Marcel believes his turn as S&M-loving Christian Grey is powerful, nuanced and spectacular, she said during a Q&A on the Aslan's Writer's Room series.

We have a feeling the Parents Television Council may have less of a problem with the following version of the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer than they had with the original.

That's because it involves kittens.

Created by The Pet Collective, the footage features one cat acting as Jamie Dornan's Christian Grey and one cat acting as Dakota Johnson's Anastasia Steele. It also involves a lot of talk about abs.

It's both disturbing and hilarious. You can decide which reaction you have to the cute/weird teaser now:

Earlier this week, Fifty Shades of Grey combined with Frozen for a different kind of preview for the ages.

The first Fifty Shades of Grey trailer was released last month, and it was either titillating, unintentionally funny or just plain vanilla, depending on your point of view.

This parody is none of the above, but darned if it isn't just as fun if not more to watch the Fifty Shades trailer audio layered over clips from the movie Frozen.

Christian Grey loves to let it go ... if you know what we mean!

(Let us know if you do, we're not sure that made any sense).

Middle-aged moms forced to watch Frozen for the 10 millionth time whilst daydreaming about Christian ransacking them can now experience both! Sort of!

Someone synced the visuals with the 50 Shades dialogue so perfectly, it's almost as if the Disney characters are animated versions of Christian and Ana.

Only unlike his Disney stand-in, Mr. Grey doesn't do romance.

The only clips that couldn't be reenacted with material featuring the icy fairy tale's hero and heroine were the brief snippets of Christian's red room of pain.

That's probably for the best. See below.

More than a year and a half after the project was announced, the Fifty Shades of Grey movie trailer hit the web last week, and it did not disappoint.

Well, unless you're an actual BDSM enthusiast, in which case you are probably LOLing at Christian Grey. But for the fans of the book? Gracious!

Whips and Handcuffs!
Christian prepares to WORK Ana like you'd expect in a marvelous GIF from the Fifty Shares of Grey trailer.

While certainly titillating on some level, the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer definitely brings the cheese factor, not dissimilarly to the source material by E.L. James.

Let's be honest: Even if you love the books, they aren't exactly literary masterpieces. Guilty pleasures, for darn sure, but heavy on the melodrama.

From what we've gleaned from this trailer, the movie looks like it will be no different when it hits theaters in February. Here's a scene-by-scene breakdown:

0:00: We first meet Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele, an impressionable, innocent college graduate who interviews Christian for a newspaper and may or may not know what Google is.

0:12: "Mr. Grey will see you now," Christian's possible cyborg secretary tells Ana. Mr. Grey, meanwhile, stares out his window, brooding in contemplative silence.

0:25: Watching Christian pace around his office, Ana is clearly taken with this mysterious, powerful figure, commenting on how polite and intimidating he is.

0:40: Explaining that she's, like, so simple, Ana says, "Look at me." Christian replies, "I am." You have NO IDEA what he's thinking about doing to her, too.

0:52: The elevator doors close. Slowly, for added suspense.

The Fifty Shades of Grey trailer earned a harsh rebuke by the PTC, which decried the sexual violence and mommy porn-packed teaser, but serious BDSM enthusiasts?

They're wondering where the good stuff is!

Whips and Handcuffs!
Christian prepares to WORK Ana like you'd expect in a marvelous GIF from the Fifty Shares of Grey trailer.

While the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer gave us some glimpses of Christian Grey working Anastasia Steele like his personal plaything, it's still amateur hour to some.

Red Room of Pain? More like Red Room of Shame ... at least according to the Threshold Society, a BDSM/leather club in L.A. whose members were unimpressed.

Threshold members say there are tons of other books and movies that better reflect their lifestyle, and one of them quoted by TMZ actually called 50 Shades "vanilla."

The group's secretary, who must have a very interesting role, says Christian Grey might want to employ more of their specialties in the BDSM world.

If you're still blushing from watching yesterday's first Fifty Shades of Grey trailer, Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson know where you're coming from.

They filmed all of those sexy moments, after all ... and it wasn't easy.

In a Today interview that followed the morning show's PTC-criticized 50 Shades unveiling, the stars dished on the "sexual acrobatics" required.

"The reality of it," said Dornan, is much different.

It may look sensual, but "there's a burly man you don't know very well three feet from your face ... which isn't how you usually have sex, [not] me, anyway."

Dakota Johnson deadpanned, "I do, a lot."

She kids, but "it's more about visually what our bodies look like and what we're doing," she clarified, "so it's more of like a dance. It's like acrobatics."

"Sexual acrobatics," Dornan laughed.

The Parents Television Council and Morality in Media are putting the first Fifty Shades of Grey trailer on blast, deeming it highly inappropriate on a number of levels.

Perhaps most jarringly for the two groups, it debuted on NBC's Today show.

PTC director of grassroots education and advocacy Melissa Henson said:

“We’re talking about basically the equivalent of a dime-store trashy romance novel. Essentially, [Today] is promoting what people refer to as ‘mommy porn.’"

Yes, she referred to it as "mommy porn." And called it "poor judgment."

Because parents often have morning news shows on with their children in the room, Henson suggests NBC should have “couched it" with a very strong disclaimer.

This, she believes, is critical given the film's strong messages.

The Fifty Shades of Grey movie is one "that’s romanticizing violence in relationships ... sexual violence is basically what this movie is promoting.”

Morality in Media, a group which advocates for education against pornography, was also none too thrilled with the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer's debut.

The Fifty Shades of Grey trailer finally arrived on Thursday morning, and its uber-sexy debut will no doubt leave you aching for more Christian Grey.

Or if you're Anastasia Steele, aching literally because of him.

E.L. James' story of the virginal Anastasia, who meets the not-so-innocent businessman Christian, became one of the biggest novels of this decade.

Now, for the first time, it's come to life in visual form.

The two-and-a-half-minute trailer gives us glimpses of the two meeting and falling in love ... and Christian going to WORK on his love interest:

Whips and Handcuffs!

The film stars as Jamie Dornan as the tortured billionaire who loves to torture his muse, and Dakota Johnson as his younger, all-too-willing companion.

While it may not be as NC-17 as fans of the book trilogy might expect, this domineering and submissive love story certainly looks steamy on screen.

The official trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey is here. Was it worth the wait?

Our first look at the film adaption of E.L. James' erotic novel debuted on Today this morning, and it's safe to say that Matt Lauer and company don't usually see this much skin on their family friendly set.

Check it out below and see Christian Grey come to life at last ...

"Did that clip just air, or has my alarm just not gone off yet?" Lauer joked afterward.

NBC executives determined that the full trailer was a bit too risque for morning television, so they decided to go with a shortened version, but you can watch the whole thing above.

As teased in the Fifty Shades trailer posted by Beyonce earlier this week, the clip features a new, eroticized version of Bey's 2003 hit, "Crazy in Love."

While Charlie Hunnam famously dropped out of the Fifty Shades of Grey movie not long after being cast back in October, he still feels "invested" in it.

Speaking Sunday while promoting Sons of Anarchy Season 7, the 34-year-old actor said it was "pretty heartbreaking" to walk away from the role.

Charlie Hunnam, No Shirt

"I was just really, really invested and wanted to work with [director] Sam [Taylor-Johnson] and play that character," he said of billionaire Christian Grey.

On how the project will turn out in his absence, he adds, "I'm really, really curious."

Hunnam is sticking to his story that he "couldn't do it because of [my] schedule," even though numerous insiders have said he got cold feet and bailed.

While he says he has "no regrets" about the decision to back out, part of him wishes he could have brought Christian Grey to life opposite Dakota Johnson.
