After MONTHS of speculation, idle gossip, castings and re-castings, Entertainment Weekly have finally given us our first glimpse at what we can expect from the hotly anticipated Fifty Shades movie. Thanks guys.

Our two leading actors grace the cover, locked in a tense, not-so-warm embrace. In fairness, both Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson have their respective characters down pat, even if all we're seeing here are a few staged photos. Jamie's got Christian Grey's sexy/creepy/dangerous thing nailed to perfection while Dakota's nail/lip-biting adds to Ana's perpetual state of unease (mixed with an insatiable desire for getting her hole. Too crass? Well Fifty Shades doesn't hold back and neither will we.)

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly upon finishing the shoot Dornan said: "There was a slight fear... But beyond anything else, I was really f*ing excited... "I'm a fairly worldly guy... I grew up in a very liberal place. I'm not saying we had a playroom, but I'm not shocked by [the sex in the book]. It's essential to tell the story. I can't believe films that don’t invoke the sexual side of it. So it works for me."

Meanwhile Dakota opened up about her own concerns with acting out much of this movie pretty much starkers: "Obviously, I want to look good naked.. I totally understand now why people exercise, because it kind of f*ing feels awesome."

With release dates moving back and forth, it seems we can now expect to get all hot and steamy in the cinema come Valentine's Day 2015.
