Exclusive: A Lip-Biting ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Poster Reveal

Fifty Shades of Grey fans still have a long wait until Thursday when the new trailer premieres during an episode of Scandal on ABC. We’ve got something to tide you over, though: This exclusive new poster above for next year’s movie adaptation of the EL James novel about a kinky billionaire and his lusty lady love (played by Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, respectively). 

At first glance, the image of our heroine Anastasia’s mouth seems like yet another in a string of suggestive teases that don’t reveal that much. For instance, witness the 16-second teaser to this week’s trailer that only ends up proving how much Christian Grey really needs to expand his color palette:

However, dedicated fans will immediately recognize the significance of the new poster’s image. Throughout the novel, Anastasia’s habit of biting her lower lip becomes one of her guaranteed ways of driving control freak Christian Grey absolutely crazy. (“I’d like to bite that lip,” he growls at one point.) Will the poster drive audiences just as wild?
