Just what we all wanted on this hump day.

Universal Pictures and Focus Features have released the first official still image from the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, posting the pic on Facebook to celebrate the fictional character's birthday. The snapshot's appropriate caption? "Happy Birthday Christian Grey."

In the pic, former Calvin Klein model and British TV star Jamie Dornan, who plays Grey, smolders in a black leather jacket while sitting behind the wheel of his Audi R8.

More than a thousand fans (and counting) have weighed in on the Facebook post, some happily sending birthday messages even as others sniffed that Dornan didn't fit their image of the literary version of Grey.



The film is an adaptation of E L James's best-selling S&M-themed novel, and a teaser poster was released in January. Dakota Johnson costars as Anastasia Steele, a college student involved in an erotic relationship with Grey.

The movie hits theaters on Valentine's Day 2015.
