In following up on 2015’s wildly-successful Fifty Shades of Grey, here we get a look at the second drop in the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy, Fifty Shades Darker. The series is based on a collection of novels by author E.L. James, as they center around the steamy relationship between Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan).
If all goes according to the book, we will learn much more about Christian’s backstory in the new film, including his family history as well as about previous lovers.
James Foley will be directing the films going forward, after Fifty Shades of Grey director Sam Taylor-Johnson and author E.L. James could not agree on the creative vision for the franchise.
Fifty Shades Darker was filmed back-to-back along with the third and final entry in the trilogy, Fifty Shades Freed.
In addition to the first full-length trailer for Fifty Shades Darker, we also see the debut movie poster.
Fifty Shades Darker is due in theaters on February 10, 2017.
