Another fan-made "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie trailer has hit the Web, and it is causing quite a stir among fans of the erotic book series. 

Created by YouTube user JLongbone, the one-minute video, uploaded earlier this month, has already received a wide range of positive feedback and thousands of views from fans of E.L. James' trilogy. The trailer, which showcases the films' lead actors, Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, is so convincing that some wondered if was official.

"It's official trailer?" asked one confused viewer. Other more knowledgeable fans have since complimented the popular trailer, one calling it "amazing work."

The trailer in question, titled "Fifty Shades of Grey | (2015) Red Band Teaser Trailer," appears legitimate, but it is merely a meticulously edited, black-and-white clip assortment of Johnson and Dornan's former acting roles. In the "NC-17"-labeled trailer, which features the song "Try a Little Tenderness," both actors can be seen "playing" their respective roles. Johnson, as the brunette, sexually inexperienced Ana Steele, and Dornan, as a contemplative, sinister, BDSM-obsessed billionaire, Christian Grey.

Warning, the video features nudity and is NSFW:

This isn't the first time a fan-made "Fifty Shades of Grey" trailer has caused a stir among fans. Just days after news broke in October that Dornan would replace Charlie Hunnam as Grey, another fan-made trailer featuring the on-screen couple went viral. 

The "Fifty Shades of Grey" film adaptation started production in Vancouver, Canada, in late November. The films' stars were last spotted in the Gassy Jack Square area of Vancouver on Thursday shooting the pivotal "bike scene" from the book series' first installment. A devout fan even captured a behind-the-scenes clip of the duo filming the sequence. 

"Fifty Shades of Grey" is due in theaters on Feb. 13, 2015. The release date for the official trailer, which was originally rumored to premiere during the 2014 SuperBowl, is unknown.
