Need some more S&M in your life? Fifty Shades Darker debuted its second official trailer this week and it couldn’t have been naughtier. What were some of the sexiest moments between Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson?
According to Us Magazine, the trailer starts with Christian Grey trying to win back Anastasia Steele by asking her out to dinner. Ana is hesitant to go out with Christian, but eventually agrees to grab a bite to eat with the billionaire, saying, “Yes, I will have dinner with you because I’m hungry, but we are only talking and that is it.”
It doesn’t take long before things heat up between the former lovers. During their dinner date, Christian tells Ana to take off her underwear. The two are then shown in a crowded elevator where Christian sneakily runs his hand up Ana’s leg.
“This Valentine’s Day, slip out of the ordinary,” the trailer teases while Miguel’s version of “Crazy in Love” plays in the background.
The clip also shows the masquerade ball included in E.L. James’ novel and cuts to several shots of Dornan exercising without a shirt. According to ET Online, the trailer also features a scene of Dornan and Johnson getting hot and heavy in the shower and a short sequence of Ana getting naked.
Despite all the sexuality in the trailer, it does not include any BDSM elements that made the book famous. Even still, fans can clearly expect plenty of sex when the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise returns to theaters in February.
Apart from all the intimate scenes, the trailer also teases Ana’s strained relationship with her new boss, Jack Hyde (Eric Johnson). All the while, E! News reports that Ana is also forced to come face to face with Christian’s ex-partners Leila Williams (Bella Heathcote) and Elena Lincoln (Kim Basinger).
“Do you think you’re the first woman who’s tried to save him,” Lincoln asks Ana in the clip.
Sadly, the new Fifty Shades Darker trailer does not confirm earlier reports that Dornan is going full frontal in the sequel. Although Dornan clearly sheds some clothing for the film, there was no indication that he stripped down completely.
Lastly, Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the trailer confirmed that Christian’s epic helicopter crash from the books will be included in the film. It isn’t clear when the crash will take place in the movie, but it doesn’t look like it will end well for the business mogul.
According to Movie Web, producers have already placed tickets for Fifty Shades Darker on sale in hopes of generating more hype for the film. There’s no telling if the efforts will pay off, though tickets for Fifty Shades of Grey didn’t go on the market until a month before the movie’s release.
The first movie in the franchise pulled down a record-breaking $85 million in February and ended up making over $550 million in worldwide sales. Fifty Shades of Grey’s record was eventually broken when Deadpool raked in $132 million. Fifty Shades Darker will be pitted against The LEGO Batman Movie and John Wick: Chapter Two.
Fifty Shades Darker stars Dornan as Christian Grey and Johnson as Anastasia Steele. Returning stars also include Marcia Gay Harden, Jennifer Ehle, Rita Ora, Luke Grimes, Eloise Mumford, Max Martini, and Victor Rasuk.
James Foley directed the sequel while Michael De Luca, Marcus Viscidi, and Dana Brunetti are returning as producers. James is also acting as a producer while her husband, Niall Leonard, helped write the screenplay.
Fans can watch Dornan and Johnson in action when Fifty Shades Darker opens in theaters on Feb. 10, 2017. The third film in the franchise, Fifty Shades Freed, is expected to premiere in 2018.
