Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan return for Fifty Shades Darker and things are super sexy, but a little dangerous too… Watch the new trailer for an extended look!
Also, EL James teases another Christian-POV novel.
OHITHERE fellow Fifty fans! Intrigued? 😉
This morning Universal Pictures/Focus Features released the first trailer for the upcoming sequel Fifty Shades Darker. Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan are back and things are about to get even more sexy!
If you’ll recall, the last time we were with Anastasia Steel and Christian Grey, she broke off their relationship after a particularly distressing RROP session.
In the new trailer, titled “Want You Back”, we see Ana and Christian rekindle their romance, but with new expectations—that is to say, they throw the contracts and rules out the window.
But this in no way means that kinky, sultry sexy times are off the table. These two have lots of fun… we get glimpses of their extraordinary dates, including attending a masked charity ball hosted by Christian’s parents at their estate.
Yet, as we see, new threats arise, including Ana’s new boss at the publishing firm where she works (Jack Hyde, played by Eric Johnson), Christian’s former submissive/lover (Leila, played by Bella Heathcote), and the woman who introduced Christian to BDSM, Mrs. Johnson herself, Elena Lincoln (Kim Basinger).
Check out the trailer below:

Definitely darker… and I just love the element of mystery! Can we talk about Miguel singing a rendition of Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love”?! New, but hearkens back to the first film in the best possible way *SHIVERS*
With that said, there’s danger lurking around several corners.
It was great to get a first look at Jack, Leila, and Elena… those of us familiar with the books know that these three characters cause a lot of trouble for Ana and Christian.
And did you notice that flash of an ill-fated helicopter ride? YIKES!
What are your favorite scenes from the trailer?
Fifty Shades Darker hits theaters on February 10, 2017.
In the mean time, this past weekend for Ana’s birthday (September 10), EL James gave fans an awesome surprise—a first look at Fifty Shades Darker from Christian’s POV! And judging from the note, we can likely expect the full novel next year. Yes, this is a great week to be a Fifty fangirl!
Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson return as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in FIFTY SHADES DARKER, the second chapter based on the worldwide bestselling “Fifty Shades” phenomenon. Expanding upon events set in motion in 2015’s blockbuster film that grossed more than $560 million globally, the new installment arrives for Valentine’s Day and invites you to slip into something a shade darker.
When a wounded Christian Grey tries to entice a cautious Ana Steele back into his life, she demands a new arrangement before she will give him another chance. As the two begin to build trust and find stability, shadowy figures from Christian’s past start to circle the couple, determined to destroy their hopes for a future together.
Also returning from Fifty Shades of Grey are Academy Award® winner Marcia Gay Harden, Jennifer Ehle, Luke Grimes, Rita Ora, Victor Rasuk, Eloise Mumford and Max Martini, who are joined for the first time by Oscar® winner Kim Basinger, Hugh Dancy, Bella Heathcote and Eric Johnson.
Fifty Shades Darker is directed by James Foley (Fear, House of Cards) and once again produced by Michael De Luca, Dana Brunetti and Marcus Viscidi, alongside E L James, the creator of the culture-spanning blockbuster series. The screenplay is by Niall Leonard, based on the book by James.
