As the bad boy of the fictional "Fifty Shades of Grey" turns another year older today, the first official movie still of lead actor Jamie Dornan debuted on the movie's official Facebook page.

The photo shows Dornan clad in a leather jacket while driving what seems to be a black Audi R8 Spyder. The photo also came with a "Happy Birthday Christian Grey" greeting.

Dornan, according to E Online, will play the "fictional-no twentysomething billionaire would drink that much white wine" in the movie which is set to hit theaters on February 14, 2015.

The first released image of the film came six months after its official movie poster was revealed. 

Dornan's casting as Christian Grey got mixed reactions from fans. International Business Times quoted one fan saying "He (Dornan) will totally ruin it for me" while another commented that the actor looks nothing like Christian Grey and that there are prettier guys for the part.

The underwear model who plays Christian will be joined by his leading lady Dakota Johnson who plays Anastacia Steele. According to US Magazine, the two lead stars have been channeling their sexy characters "on and off set." In a separate interview with The Guardian last April, the 32-year-old Dornan joked that he is "tired of tying women up" after he played  an S&M-loving heartthrob.

 "There are a couple of classic knots I know now... and I've put them to good use far too many times recently. In fact I'd like to do a job where I don't have to tie women to beds," he added.

The movie which is an adaptation of E.L. James 2011 bestselling novel is directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson and also stars Jennifer Ehle, Luke Grimes, Victor Rasuk, Eloise Mumford, Max Martini, Rita Ora, Marcia Gay Harden and Callum Keith Rennie. (See teaser trailer below.)

The book was first published in 2011, followed by its second book, "Fifty Shades Darker". The last book, "Fifty Shades Freed" explores Grey and Steele's deepening relationship, according to US Magazine. The release of the movies for the subsequent series is also very much anticipated although there is still no official announcement on that.
