First Trailer for Sequel 'Fifty Shades Darker' Starring Dakota Johnson
"I want you back…" "I don't see how this can work." We're only going to write about this movie once, so let's get it over with. Universal has debuted the first official trailer for the Fifty Shades of Grey sequel titled Fifty Shades Darker, directed this time by James Foley (of Glengarry Glen Ross). Dakota Johnson returns to play Anastasia Steele, and Jamie Dornan returns to play her tormented lover Christian Grey. Despite breaking up, they obviously get back together. The cast includes Kim Basinger, Tyler Hoechlin, Bella Heathcote, Hugh Dancy, Max Martini, Marcia Gay Harden, Rita Ora and Luke Grimes. This is pretty much exactly what you'd expect - more of the same cheesiness, more sex, more sadism, more footage that will make you roll your eyes. There's even a few shots that look like a horror movie. Not for me.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for James Foley's Fifty Shades Darker, direct from YouTube:
Daunted by the singular tastes and dark secrets of the handsome, tormented Christian Grey, Anastasia Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a Seattle Independent Publishing House (SIP); but desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, Anastasia cannot resist. They rekindle their searing sexual affair, and Anastasia learns more about the harrowing past of her damaged, driven and demanding Fifty Shades. Fifty Shades Darker, the sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey, is directed by American filmmaker James Foley, of Glengarry Glen Ross, Fear, The Chamber, The Corruptor, Confidence and Perfect Stranger previously. James Foley is also directing Fifty Shades Freed next. The screenplay is adapted by Niall Leonard, based on E.L. James' novel. Universal will release Fifty Shades Darker in theaters starting February 10th, 2017 next year. Anyone?
