The trailer premiered on the Today show, which declined to show the whole thing

Here, finally, is your Fifty Shades of Grey trailer. And it sure doesn’t skimp on the steamy.

The movie version of E.L. James’s runaway best-selling erotic novel looks to be just as titillating as the book, as Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson – playing Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele – ratchet up the sexual tension to the strains of a special, exclusive version of Beyoncé‘s “Crazy in Love.”

But be warned: The trailer isn’t for the prudish.

The latter third, in particular, gets quite racy, including some bondage scenes. In fact, when NBC’s Today show premiered the trailer Thursday morning, it aired a truncated version – deeming the full preview too hot for TV.

Of course, Fifty Shades of Grey fans wouldn’t want it any other way.

The film hits theaters Feb. 13.
