Fifty Shades Darker’s filming is already finished, but the movie’s main lead, Dakota Johnson, is still in the hangover of her character.
The Texas-born actress recently took to her Instagram feed to upload a racy image of herself, and it proved that the promotion of her upcoming erotic film has already begun.
In the uploaded picture, the 26-year-old Johnson is standing along with her dog Zeppelin in her house. Her brown hair fell back over her yellow sweatshirt, and as she raised her arms, the top slid up a bit to expose a bit of her back.
“The ass is the window to the soul or something like that,” she bantered in her caption.
This is not the first time when the actress has uploaded racy pictures of herself on social media.
Last month, Johnson took to Instagram to upload a very sensual image of herself. In the uploaded picture, she can be seen sitting in a car wearing a blue dress that she is pulling up and revealing her inner thighs. Her well-toned hands can be seen resting down under as she gives a smirky laugh. The provocative caption reads as follows.
“I’ll have an order of Identity Crisis with a side of What’s My Hand Doing. #please.”
In recent times, myriad pictures of Johnson along with her co-star Jamir Dornan have surfaced online. Earlier this month, paparazzi got hold of topless pictures of the actress along with Dornan while they were enjoying a sunbath after wrapping their movie.
Along with these released pictures, several other pictures made the rounds on the internet in the past. According to Heavy, the released images from the filming location showed Dornan and Johnson sharing a passionate kiss in an alley. The other pictures showed the couple on a dinner date.
Fans of Johnson already know that the actress broke up with her longtime boyfriend Matthew Hitt during the shoot of the movie adaptation of E.L. James’ erotic novel series. According to Just Jared, Hitt and Johnson parted ways due to their extensive schedule. The movie star was busy shooting her film in Paris and Vancouver, whereas, the singer was busy with his indie group, the Drowners. A reliable insider revealed that the couple did not wish to drag out their relationship
“They didn’t get a chance to see much of each other recently because their work schedules didn’t align. She’s been up in Vancouver shooting the Fifty Shades trilogy.”
So, it looks like Fifty Shades is all she has and she is not afraid to find new ways to promote her upcoming film. The first part of the trilogy performed well over box office, but it failed miserably to impress the critics and the book lovers.
Released in 2015, Fifty Shades of Grey was produced under a budget of $40 million, and it garnered more than $570 million at the box. In spite of earning well, the movie failed in all the other aspects. It went on to win the most awards at the 36th Golden Raspberry Awards, winning five out of six nominations including, worst actress, worst actor, worst screen combo, worst screenplay and worst picture.
These racy snaps of the stars have already created enough buzz, and it looks like the second and third part in the movie will have a lot more to offer than the first one.
The final installments in the Fifty Shades trilogy, which Dakota Johnson had filmed back-to-back with Jamie Dornan that flung her to such locations as Paris and Vancouver, will premiere in February 2017 and February 2018, respectively.
Do you think that these pictures are just a part of her marketing strategy and all these raunchy images are just to create the hype for the film? Tell us in the comments.
