The British rating board has given Sam Taylor-Johnson’s adaptation an 18 rating in the UK, and goes into a little more detail than the ‘unusual behavior’ described by its US counterpart.

Fifty-Shades-of-Grey-Poster-stripValentine’s 2015 is going to have a different flavour of romance than normal when it comes to mainstream cinema, with Focus and Universal’s anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey adaptation sure to light up the box office.

The box office is already open months in advance for those looking to lock down a steamy weekend at the cinema, and following on from the latest trailer we saw late last week, the studios have launched a new TV spot to whet your appetite.

Courtesy of Amazon, here’s the synopsis for the original novel by E.L. James.
