PHOTO The first official photo of Christian Grey is real, and it’s spectacular

Universal Pictures has released the first official photo of Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey. Strap yourselves in:

In lieu of a teaser trailer, this photo is a pretty nice way for Fifty Shades fans to bide their time. It looks like Jamie has just the right mix of good looks and predatory charm to make for a fun big-screen version of control freak Christian Grey. And the leather jacket–which, with the steering wheel, adds a touch of Night Rider to the image–doesn’t hurt, either.

At this rate, the only real question is how the movie will stay true to the book but nab the PG-13 rating its producers reportedly want.


Johnson and Dornan will do their best to lean toward a hard R.

Dornan replaced Sons of Anarchy star and fellow good-looking person Charlie Hunnam in the cast late last year. Dunnam’s television responsibilities kept him out of Christian’s pants.

Dornan will star alongside Dakota Johnson’s rendition of Anastasia Steele. Fifty Shades of Grey is set for release on February 13th, 2015. So, if you haven’t already, you can start making your Valentine’s Day plans now.

What do you think? Does this picture get you excited for the film? Is Dornan a convincing Christian Grey, or a pretender? Who would be better suited for the part?
