Fifty Shades of Grey is celebrating Valentine's Day - the one-year mark before the film's 2015 release - with a poster showing us our first glimpse of Ana Steele!

Fifty Shades of Grey Poster: One Year.

In the first Fifty Shades of Grey poster, we saw Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey. In that image, the businessman gazes out his office window into the distance.

the tagline: "Mr. Grey will see you now."

Here, we also see Christian from the back, only he's turned to face Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson), his soon-to-be paramour and S&M plaything.

The highly-anticipated film adaptation of E.L. James' novel hits theaters on Valentine's Day weekend next winter. A long wait, but good timing for such an event.

Take a look at the first poster below:

There are now exactly 365 days until the Fifty Shades of Grey movie hits theaters, and the anticipation's just killing us ... although not as much so after this.

Anastasia Steele herself, Dakota Johnson, has given Vanity Fair a little taste of what 50 fans can expect from the film, and it sounds like a snooze-fest.

At least before Christian Grey is in the picture to heat things up!

"A lot of getting into the character's head, in Ana's headspace before she meets Christian, so it's a lot of reading, which I love," Johnson told the magazine.

"She's an English major, so that's kinda boring."

Seriously. Who majors in that?!

Of course, that's just the beginning, prior to the TORRID love affair between the two leads, during which Dakota promises she "doesn't have a problem" with anything.

Italian businessman Alessandro Proto claims he is the inspiration behind Christian Grey, the male lead in E.L. James' trilogy Fifty Shades of Grey.

Proto met the British author in 2010 when James was touring Italy writing about international celebrities snapping up properties in the country.

  • Jamie Dornan: Christian Grey
  • A. Proto

"The firm Grey runs in the book is called Grey Enterprise Holding. Mine is called Proto Organization Holding," the 39-year-old told New York Daily News.

"When I met E.L. James I used to drive a R8 Audi."

Christian Grey, who will be played by Jamie Dornan on screen, famously drives an Audi R8 Spyder and also purchases Anastasia Steele an Audi A3.

The former encyclopedia salesman, who may make a cameo in the film, also noted that the top floor location of his office was used in the book.

Christian Grey has arrived. Or at least he's on the verge of arriving in February ... 2015. Hey, take what you can get for now, and what you can get is this:

The first movie poster for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie!

"Mr. Grey will see you now," the film's official Twitter page teased with the poster. "Start the countdown to Valentine’s Day 2015! #FiftyShades #ChristianGrey."

Jamie Dornan, who plays Christian Grey opposite Dakota Johnson's Anastastia Steele, is seen from behind as he gazes outside his office window.

We'll likely be seeing a lot more of his behind, and Johnson's, in the adaptation of E.L. James' best-selling erotic novel. If you know what we mean!!

We mean sex, people. Although, speaking of the book's steamier scenes, what you read may not be exactly what you get, according to new on-set intel.

Producer Michael De Luca recently implied that the infamous, S&M-laden Fifty Shades of Grey sex scenes may be toned down for younger audiences.

Jamie Dornan will soon bring Christian Grey to life on screen, but the Irish actor and his facial hair have been doing this long before he was a household name.

By this, we mean looking smoldering in photo shoots. In October, before being cast in Fifty Shades of Grey, the 31-year-old did a campaign for Hogan menswear.

Not unlike how you might imagine bad boy billionaire S&M freak Christian Grey, Dornan looks dapper in suit and oozes intensity as he stares off to the side.

Jamie Dornan For Hogan

If this suit were gray, it would almost be like he was channeling the character that E.L. James created and he is about to bring to life ... NC-17 or PG-13 style.

"Hogan is a cool contemporary Italian brand. Certain brands sort of stand out, Hogan is one of those," said Jamie in a statement re: the men's  fashion line.

The full campaign is scheduled to be unveiled in February of this year, with Fifty Shades of Grey due out in February 2015. Until then, to tide yourself over ...

Scroll through more Jamie Dornan photos from this shoot and others. Welcome.

Things are getting heated on the Fifty Shades of Grey set, and we're not talking about Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson naked and slapping bodies.

Unfortunately.

Amid rumors that the movie may be watered down to lure in a younger audience (and earn a higher box office gross) comes reports of more tension on set.

E.L. James and the film's director Sam Taylor-Johnson aren't exactly seeing eye to eye, insiders say, with the latter becoming irritated by the former's input.

It all comes down to the sex, says a source of the two butting heads:

"E.L. James wants the movie to match the book exactly, but Sam has a different perspective. Sam is reminding E.L. she writes books and she makes movies."

Some say this confrontation was bound to happen sooner or later.

The Fifty Shades of Grey movie has the potential to be one of the most graphic, mainstream movies in decades ... but will the final product reflect that?

While Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan have been hard at work filming steamy scenes, it appears that audiences might not get to see much of them.

Reports are surfacing from the Canadian set that Universal wants desperately to lure a younger audience into the theaters to boost its box office profits.

Dornan has expressed his willingness - even hopes - that a Fifty Shades of Grey NC-17 edition be filmed and released. Execs may not agree, however.

Even if it was scaled back to an R rating, that would severely restrict the audience that could be allowed into see the film adaption of E.L. James' novel.

When you consider that ... speculation is that it may be all or nothing.

Fifty Shades of Grey doesn't hit theaters until 2015, but there are already trailers galore on the web that give us a preview. Fan-made previews, but still.

Ever since Jamie Dornan was cast as Christian Grey, fans have assumed, or at least hoped, that he and Dakota Johnson have the right kind of chemistry.

Charlie Hunnam, before bailing on the Fifty Shades of Grey movie and being replaced by Dornan this fall, had cited "a tangible chemistry" with Johnson.

A chemistry, he said, that "felt exciting and fun and weird and compelling." Gulp. The million-dollar question: Do Jamie and Dakota possess a similar spark?

This unofficial Fifty Shades of Grey trailer seeks to shed some light on the subject:

Wow. Obviously, this sexy footage of the two actors is nothing like we'll see in the actual trailer, which should be coming out next summer sometime.

They're not even together in the roles shown above. Still, if it helps you envision them as Christian and Ana at all, what you're envisioning is likely pretty hot.

No offense to Charlie Hunnam, but Jamie Dornan is rather dashing, don't you think? The more you watch trailers like this, the better choice he appears.

Speaking of which ... watch a bunch more of them after the jump!

The countdown is on, THGers. It is so very on.

It's late in the year, which means we are revealing the finalists for, and eventually the winner of, our site's prestigious, arbitrary, 7th Annual Celebrity of the Year honor.

Kate Upton heated everything up at #10, Walter White cooked his way into our hearts at #9 and Jennifer Lawrence stole them at #8. Now, our seventh finalist ...

Christian Grey!

Jamie Dornan: Christian Grey

We thought about giving this slot to Jamie Dornan, who will bring Christian Grey to life in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie adaptation of EL James' books.

It was Christian who left more of a mark on 2013 than Dornan, however. In fact, the actor who will actually play him on screen was only recently revealed.

He wasn't even the first person announced as the lead character. That was Charlie Hunnam, who went on to bail on the sexy project for unspecified reasons.

Prior to the casting of Hunnam and the re-casting of the role with Dornan, never has there been more speculation, debate and opinion over a movie character.
