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

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.

You won't find the first footage from Fifty Shades of Grey, 2015's most anticipated movie, in any theater. Just on Beyonce's Instagram page, obviously.

The first official trailer hits the web Thursday, and the singer subtly - seemingly, and surprisingly - revealed her involvement with the teaser below:

The video teasing the first Fifty Shades of Grey trailer features some snippets of footage with what sounds like "Crazy In Love" and the hashtag #fiftyshades.

Beyonce's connection with the Fifty Shades of Grey movie soundtrack was initially when "Haunted" popped up in 50 Shades footage that debuted at CinemaCon.

While she has not confirmed any role in the movie or its soundtrack, it would be BEYond strange if she was simply getting hyped for the adaptation.

Unless the Queen is simply excited for the movie based on the erotic books like every other soccer mom, we expect to hear more from her on the topic.

Could you envision Lucy Hale as Anastasia Steele?

This was nearly a reality, as the Pretty Little Liars star tried out for the role that ended up going to Dakota Johnson.

How did it go?

It was "unlike any audition I have ever done before in my life," Hale told MTV this week. “It actually was just me. It was a two-page monologue of exactly what you would think it would be. Very uncomfortable, but it was sort of one of those things where you just had to go for it or you’re just gonna look lame."

Hale didn't elaborate, but we'd have to imagine some bondage of S&M was involved in her reading.

The first official photo of Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey in the wildly anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie has been released, and it's a good one!

The bad news: Christian Grey is clothed in the pic. The good news:

  1. It's better than not having a photo of Christian right now.
  2. Look at that smoldering stare ... almost like a predator!
Jamie Dornan in Fifty Shades of Grey

We're going to guess that the recipient of that sexy gaze can only be Ms. Anastasia Steele, the object of his passionate desires played by Dakota Johnson.

Look at Christian Grey and imagine what he's thinking right now.

As the subsequent stills and the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer arrive, we’ll get a stronger idea of just how this erotic novel adaptation is (reportedly) PG-13.

Fifty Shades of Grey, which also stars Jennifer Ehle, Rita Ora, Marcia Gay Harden, Eloise Mumford and Max Martini, arrives February 13, 2015.

Happy early Valentine’s Day! To further whet your appetite for one of the biggest films of next year, scroll through the enticing gallery after the jump ...

When fans played the Fifty Shades of Grey fantasy casting game for the better part of a year, Jamie Dornan was likely not on too many wish lists.

A relative unknown, the Northern Ireland native wasn't even the producers' first choice; Charlie Hunnam took, then exited the role of Christian Grey.

He does bring an underwear modeling background to the role, though, and shows that he's unafraid to take it all (or mostly) off in Interview magazine:

  • Jamie Dornan Interview Cover
  • Jamie Dornan Hot Pic

As for the bathtub photo with only his red underwear on, a scene you would think would be comfortable for the former model, Jamie says it wasn't so.

That or he's just humble about it, but he swears he doesn't like his body.

"I don't like my physique. Who does?" Jamie Dornan asks Interview. "I was a skinny guy growing up, and I still feel like that same skinny kid."

Plenty of fans will like his physique as Christian Grey, we're guessing.

Farrah Abraham is pushing this new erotic novel trilogy she had someone ghostwrite for her, and needless to say, she thinks pretty highly of the work.

So much so, she's already thinking ahead to the future movie adaptation!

That might be a challenge for her, though. If it's anything like the book, which was hard to write because it turned her on too much, it'll be hard to focus!

Just how HOT is Celebrity Sex Tape (yes, that's really the name)?

"This is very hot and heavy. There’s a lot of heavy story work in the writing, but then it’s very hot and sexual when you’re writing it," Farrah Abraham says.

"In all honesty, it has been very hard to write the sexual scenes because it turns your mind on and it’s very hard to finish. I mean, I don’t want to say too much."

"It was very important for me to have a very awesome and authentic storyline because that’s me as a writer," she adds, seemingly without irony.

After plenty of casting drama, a pushed-back release date and only 2 months of filming it looks like the '50 Shades' movie is all (ahem) tied up.

"And that's a wrap..." tweeted author E. L. James on Friday evening.

Now fans just have to wait a long 11 months before they get to see Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey in all their naughty big-screen glory.

Ever since the news broke that the smutty best-seller was being turned into a movie, fans have been speculating on just how true to the book the film could possibly stay.

Too little and all you have left is a slightly boring romance.

Too much and you have straight up porn.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

The film's stars haven't given us much to go on: "Reading the book, I found myself more interested in the ways they were breaking each other down emotionally than the sex," Dakota Johnson has said.

Yeah, but what about the sex??
