The trailer for 50 Shades of Grey  – the much anticipated film adaptation of the worldwide bestselling “mom porn” book – is out.  In fact it was dropped this week on Mom Central, a.k.a. NBC’s The Today Show .

Housewives?  They’re aufgeregt .  Like, majorly aufgeregt .

Why all the buzz?

“It’s a trailer that aired on the Today  show,” one of our girlfriends opined. “What did they expect?”

Wanna watch it? Knock yourself out …


“Love (it),” another of our girlfriends said, flashing some heart-eyed emoji for emphasis. “Pissed I have to wait SIX months!!!”

Another was less satisfied with the trailer, saying the forthcoming film “seems pretty tame to me.”

Hmmmm …

Fifty Shades of Grey – which explores bondage/ discipline, dominance/ submission, sadism/ masochism (BDSM) and other sexual proclivities in explicit detail – is the first book in a trilogy that has sold more than 70 million copies worldwide.  Originally slated for an August 2014 release, the film adaptation of the first novel is now expected to be released next Valentine’s Day weekend.

Dakota Johnson – daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson – will play the part of Anastasia Steele, while Charlie Dornan has been cast in the role of billionaire Christian Grey.  The trailer for the movie is set to a racy re-recording of Beyonce’s “Crazy In Love,” seeking to play up the chemistry between the two co-stars.

During their interview on Today , though, Johnson seemed to pour cold water on the on-screen heat.

“It’s not, like, a romantic situation,” she said. “It’s more, like, technical and choreographed and less … it’s more of a task.”

“Wow!” Dornan responded with a sigh.

So … will you  watch the movie?
