Beyonce teased fans by posting the first teaser trailer for the hugely anticipated erotic film drama 50 Shades of Grey to her Instagram account.
The brief clip, which featured her own breathy vocals, was released ahead of the full promo for the movie, which will be shown in cinemas on February 13 next year.
As of Monday, the posts had received around 300,000 likes and more than 51,000 comments.
Movie fans saw Christian Grey, who is played by Jamie Dornan, tap his hand as he rests high up in a tower block against an office window. The short clip also showed a man touching a woman’s thigh and letting himself into what looks like the famous red room of pain which was vividly portrayed in EL James source novel. The action plays out against a slowed down remix of Beyonce’s mega hit Crazy in Love.
Beyonce sparked speculation that she will be one of the key musicians behind the movie’s soundtrack. Indeed, back in March, film studio Universal unveiled the first glimpse of footage where one of the scenes was set to Beyonce’s album track Haunted from her recently released self-titled album.
