Even though I worked at Barnes & Noble for a couple months in 2012 and sold an incalculable number of copies of 50 Shades of Grey and its sequels, I somehow avoided finding out anything about the plot. Basically, I knew that it started out as Twilight fan fiction and that, due to its steamy themes, often made its shyest readers blush on the subway. Even watching the trailer now I don't feel particularly tuned in to the inner-workings of what I assume to be a very complicated storyline, but I don't think that's the point. The clip is soundtracked by a new, slow-building, slightly eerie rework of Beyoncé and Jay-Z's summer-of-'03 mega-hit "Crazy In Love," and it's probably worth watching to hear that, at least. The movie stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan and hits theaters next Valentine's Day.

We still don’t really know what the movie’s about, though.
