Watch the full ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ trailer: What we couldn’t show on TV

July 24, 2014 at 8:20 AM ET

"Fifty Shades of Grey" fans, you've come to the right place. You saw part of the exclusive too-hot-for-morning-TV trailer on TODAY, but here's the full trailer for you to watch now.

Video: See the full too-hot-for-morning-TV trailer for Universal Pictures’ “Fifty Shades of Grey.”

That wasn't all that was on the plate for "Fifty Shades" fans. As the trailer ended, they learned that Beyoncé has re-recorded her 2003 hit "Crazy in Love" for the film — and then got to hear directly from the movie's stars, Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, who were live and in the studio. 

The pair, who play leads Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, confirmed that yes, the full trailer is much racier than what could be shown on morning television.

But that wasn't the reason Johnson said she didn't think she'd want her actor parents, Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, to see the film. "If it were them doing a (sexy) movie I wouldn't want them to see that (either)," she chuckled.

Still, while the movie is hot, making it was ... less so. "It's not, like, a romantic situation," said Johnson. "It's more, like, technical and choreographed and less ... it's more of a task."

"Wow!" said Dornan with a sigh. But he bounced back and noted that the pair had chemistry on the set.

"That's a big part of it ... having trust," he said. "Because, you know, we got ourselves into situations that don't feel that sort of natural and they're not that easy and you need to have the trust there."

Here's what we trust: that "Fifty Shades of Grey" will be a big success. (After all, it has already invaded pop culture.)

Stay tuned to TODAY this week for more "Fifty Shades" goodies. On Friday, Natalie Morales will get an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the movie set, where she’ll talk with cast members as well as the best-selling trilogy’s author, E.L. James, on location. And if you were wondering whether fans like yourself will really want to "see it all" on screen, we've got your answer.

"Fifty Shades of Grey" comes to theaters on Feb. 13, 2015.
