First official photo of Jamie Dornan in Fifty Shades of Grey

The first official photo of Jamie Dornan in the Fifty Shades of Grey has been released to celebrate Christian Grey's birthday.

It's pretty tame stuff from the upcoming erotic bonk-buster with Dornan smouldering for all he's worth - using just the power of his eyes - as he sits at the wheel of a car wearing a cool leather jacket.

See how his brow is furrowed in concentration? He's probably thinking about all the kinky sex he's going to have with his lover Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson). Or perhaps he's wondering if he set the Sky Plus to record Top Gear .

Either way, there's not a pair of handcuffs in sight. In fact, it looks more like he's auditioning for Fast & Furious 8 .

Fifty Shades of Grey , directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson, will open in the UK on 13 February 2015.
