Beyonce hints at Fifty Shades of Grey involvement with trailer teaser on Instagram
Beyoncé has published a trailer of Fifty Shades of Grey on her Instagram, suggesting that she is to have some involvement with the film’s soundtrack.
The short clip features a remix (code for hypersexualised version) of the singer’s Crazy in Love track, as well as some heavy breathing and a close-up shot of what are the hands and legs of presumably Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, who star as leads Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. Other ‘highlights’ include a shot of Dornan’s back as he stares, probably broodingly, out a window.
Beyoncé added little more to the trailer, other than a caption reading “#fiftyshades”. But suffice to say, it’s not unimaginable that the singer’s breathy, charged voice will appear on the soundtrack in some capacity. Or maybe she and Jay-Z are just huge fans of the books.
The official trailer launches on Thursday 24 July, while the film – directed by Sam Taylor Johnson - arrives in cinemas on 14 February next year.
EL James’ original book trilogy of the same name has become one of the biggest-selling literary series of all time, selling 100million copies worldwide.
