‘Fifty Shades Darker’ Trailer: Christian and Anastasia Are Back At It


“You think you’re the first woman who has tried to save him?” Aha! So there have been other women in Christian Grey’s (Jamie Dornan) life that he tortured, metaphorically speaking. In Fifty Shades Darker, it looks like Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) is going find out the truth, once and for all.

Here’s the official synopsis: “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.”

From the trailer, it also seems like there is going to be less BDSM in the bedroom and more just straight-up sex. That’s good. As we all know, the first Fifty Shades of Grey is kind of a joke, with more laugh-out-loud moments than any real juiciness, and the whips and harnesses are more than a little boring.

Now maybe they can fix it in Fifty Shades Darker. Take a first look – and more importantly, admire Jamie Dornan’s amazing physique.

Here’s hoping this sequel steps it up a bit and gives more substance to both lead characters. Fifty Shades Darker also stars newcomers Kim Basinger, Hugh Dancy, Bella Heathcote and Eric Johnson, and is directed by James Foley (Fear, House of Cards).
