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."

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!

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.

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.

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??

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."

Fifty Shades of Grey Poster

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.

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!

Jamie Dornan is going all out in the role of Christian Grey. The 31-year-old Fifty Shades of Grey star will go full-frontal for the film, according to reports.

E.L. James' novel was already the most uncomfortable thing you've ever had to discuss with your mom. Now the movie is ready to up the awkwardness tenfold.

Then again, you really can't blame the man, or the producers.

Christian Grey spends a lot of time naked, so it’s no surprise that Jamie Dornan will strip down during his time in the Red Room of Pain. No holds barred.

Co-star Dakota Johnson will be nude quite often, as well.

It's Christian who fans care about, though, and in casting the role, producers realized that fans want the movie to be just as erotic as the book that inspired it.

They shall have their wish, as Dornan will deliver.

The Fifty Shades of Grey movie is actually going to happen. Finally, after over a year of speculation and months of delays, the production is underway.

Producer Dana Brunetti Tweeted a photo of a film slate from the set Sunday with the caption, "Here we go." Sadly, there were no whips or chains visible:

50 Shades of Grey Underway

Once targeted to hit theaters next summer, the movie adaptation of EL James' novel has been pushed back due to casting changes and other factors.

The sexy motion picture is now slated for release February 13, 2015.

While everyone has their opinions regarding the casting, it shouldn't come as news to anyone that Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are now the film's leads.

See them filming some of the early scenes for the flick below ...
