Sometimes a trip to the hardware store has nothing to do with DIY projects around the house.
Universal just released the first clip from "Fifty Shades of Grey," showing billionaire S&M aficionado Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) visiting Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) at her place of employment ... where he picks up some rope, cable ties and masking tape.
"You're the complete serial killer," Johnson says at the end of the clip. "Not today," replies Dornan, who coincidentally played a serial killer on the recent BBC series "The Fall."
While the clip only hints at some of the kinky action between the sheets, a new report from the Sunday Times says the film had its fair share of steamy scenes.
Sex scenes reportedly make up 1/5th of the 100 minute film, clocking in at 20 minutes of the good stuff.
Check out another sneak peek from the flick below, as some additional content made its premiere during the movie's Super Bowl commercial on Sunday night.
As we previously reported, all the sex scenes from the book weren't even shot for the flick ... including one gross-out moment that was better left unfilmed.
In an interview with Variety, director Sam Taylor-Johnson revealed the book's infamous tampon scene will be MIA. "It was never even discussed," she says.
Haven't read the book? Here's the passage in question below ... and yes, it's pretty graphic.
"His breathing is ragged, matching mine. 'When did you start your period, Anastasia?' ... He reaches between my legs and pulls on the blue string and gently takes my tampon out and tosses it into the nearby toilet. Holy f**k. And then he's inside me."
Yeah, probably for the best they left that one out, right?
"On the early draft, there was a sense that there was way too much sex," Taylor-Johnson adds. "The story, of course, is of equal importance. We tried to balance the narrative correctly, so one doesn't feel like it's drowning the other. It's the buildup that's interesting. I feel that in movies, the minute there's penetration, it's all over."
