The second full-length Fifty Shades of Grey trailer dropped Thursday night, and like Christian Grey himself, the movie hopes to bounce back from a rough start.

With Charlie Hunnam bailing on the lead role and Dakota Johnson not coming off sexy in early scenes, the February 2015 film needs a boost of adrenaline.

Does this trailer do the job? Check it out below and see ...

The first Fifty Shades of Grey trailer was met with mixed reviews, with some fans believing the two stars had no chemistry and that it was more funny than sexy.

This second effort puts the focus of the trailer squarely on the man who makes the entire story: Christian Grey, played by the handsome Jamie Dornan. 

In this two and a half minute tease for the movie adaptation of E.L. James’ erotic novel, the mind and body of Grey take center stage from the onset.

He had rough upbringing. He still likes certain “things” to be a little rough, albeit within his control at all times. This makes Christian so “good at people.”

About the only thing our damaged hero doesn't say is "Laters, baby."

A seductive in a new poster for Fifty Shades of Grey has been released, featuring Anastasia Steele biting her lip and the tagline "Mr. Grey will see you now."

Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson may not be coming off sexy - never a good sign in a movie where sex plays a big part - but she tries to look the part:

New 50 Shades of Grey Poster

"'Enlighten me.' New #FiftyShades trailer in 2 days," reads the teaser poster's caption on the official Fifty Shades Facebook page, where it debuted today.

In a new black and white promo pic, Johnson's Ana strikes a pose that is certain to drive Mr. Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) absolutely wild.

Or at least producers hope so.

They reportedly had to re-shoot the sex scenes for the adaptation of E.L. James' bestselling novel, which is set for release on Friday, February 13.

The second Fifty Shades of Grey trailer will premiere Thursday night during this week's episode of Scandal, offering fans a much-anticipated sneak peek.

There's trouble on the set of Fifty Shades of Grey, and we're not talking about the good kind of trouble that involves whips, chains and the like.

No, it seems the latest not-so-sexy danger is that the movie might not titillate audiences the way the book did as a result of some serious casting problems.

Sources on set say that a noticeable lack of chemistry between stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson has led to some incredibly bland sex scenes.

"Dakota isn't coming off sexy enough," says one 50 Shades insider.

"No one should question the heat or intensity of our actors."

But producers are, and as a result, the actors have been called back to the set for re-shoots just four months before the film is scheduled to hit theaters.

Some insiders involved with the production reportedly believe, however, that at this point, it's most likely a case of too little, too late.

Dakota Johnson's innocent heroine Anastasia Steele is the focal point of the latest promotional photo for Fifty Shades of Grey, and it's a good one.

The image was released on Wednesday, September 10, in celebration of Ana's birthday and accompanied by the caption, "Happy Birthday, Anastasia. #FiftyShades."

As we saw in the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer, Johnson is the protagonist, her brunette locks framing her face and her signature bangs just skimming her eyebrows.

The budding journalist holds a black pencil bearing the name Grey between her fingers, angled just so we can read the name of her future lover's corporation.

Christian Grey, played by Jamie Dornan, was the second man cast as the lead character in the adaptation of the best-selling books by E.L. James.

The role originally went to another handsome actor, but Charlie Hunnam had a nervous breakdown and had to back out, leaving the door open for Dornan.

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 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."

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??

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.

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!
