Sam Taylor-Johnson has said she hopes that fans of Fifty Shades Of Grey will feel her big screen adaptation lives up to their expectations.

The director spoke to the Radio Times about making the big screen version of EL James' popular books and what she hoped to achieve with it.

She said: "I love a great, powerful, love story. Really intense and sophisticated is how I wanted to make the whole movie.

"We go on a very deep emotional journey between two people who are trying to reckon with what the relationship is, what a relationship is. It had to be a fantasy, but classy and exhilarating.

"I just hope it honours what people want from the movie."

The film's stars Jamie Dornan, who plays Christian Grey, and Dakota Johnson, who plays Anastasia Steele, also gave their take on the film.

Jamie said: "What ensues is a mad, back and forth love story."

Dakota added: "It's very rich, it's enticing and it's romantic. It's a sexy film."

Meanwhile, when asked by the Daily Telegraph whether she was ashamed of anything she'd done in the film, Dakota admitted: "Yes. Of course. Absolutely. The whole time. Even now there are moments when I think, 'What the f*** have I done?' But most of the time I feel pretty solid about it."

Fifty Shades Of Grey opens in cinemas on December 13.
