While the novel has been panned by some critics for its poor quality of writing, it has seduced readers with its explicit sex scenes, often referred to as “porn.

As the trailer begins, the elevator doors open. Out walks Steele on her way to meet Grey for the first time.

“What about you? I’d like to know more about you,” Grey says to Steele, high up in a glass office.

“There’s really not much to know about me,” Steele says coyly. “Look at me.”

“I am,” Grey responds, eyes staring into hers.

The music intensifies.

Beyonce’s sexy re-recorded version of her single “Crazy in Love” plays in the background — and things heat up.
