The first official clip from new movie Fifty Shades of Grey has been unveiled - and it features Christian Grey picking up just a few of his bedroom essentials in a DIY store.

The footage sees the billionaire protagonist, played by Jamie Dornan, stocking up on cable ties, masking tape and rope as a flustered and nervous Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson), who works part-time at the shop, serves him.

Businessman Christian suggests that he has no intention of using any of his new purchases to redecorate.

While the clip from the film, which has been cloaked in secrecy, features none of the raunchy scenes that the books by EL James are famous for, there is plenty of sexual tension.

It ends with college student Anastasia, who is unaware of her soon-to-be lover's predilection for sadomasochism, joking: "Rope, tape, cable ties, you're the complete serial killer," to which Christian replies: "Not today."

The clip was released after the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) made Sam Taylor-Johnson's take on the raunchy novels an 18 certificate and said that the work "passed uncut".

Universal has previously unveiled trailers for the movie, featuring the couple kissing passionately in a lift and a montage of shots involving whips, robes and blindfolds.

Fifty Shades of Grey is set for UK release on February 13.
