Sequels to romances are few and far between, but Fifty Shades of Grey isn’t your average romance. Based on E.L. James‘ erotic thriller of the same name, the film adaptation was a box office sensation pulling in over $571 million on a budget of just $41 million. However, the sequel Fifty Shades Darker isn’t just a result of the big box office, because there was a whole trilogy of books before the first movie even got off the ground.
Now a new Fifty Shades Darker trailer has arrived, playing to its prime target audience during the premiere of The Bachelor last night. The new trailer shows the next chapter of the romance between Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and Ana Steele (Dakota Johnson), and it appears things are not only going to get kinky again, but also deadly.

Fifty Shades of Grey ended with Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) reconsidering the terms of her complicated relationship with Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), but to the surprise of absolutely no one, Fifty Shades Darker finds the couple slipping right back into their old kinky habits. After all, there’s no sequel if they break up for good. And if there’s no sequel, there’s no opportunity for Universal to make another gazillion dollars off this hot property.
However, there are a few key changes this time around. For starters, the new installment sees James Foley replacing Sam Taylor-Johnson as the director behind the camera. And then there’s the fact that this one looks less like a romantic drama than a thriller, what with all the creepy stalkers appearing in bedrooms and all the helicopters crashing in forests. Watch the Fifty Shades Darker trailer below.

Earlier this week, Universal released the trailer for Fifty Shades Darker, the second chapter in the Fifty Shades franchise. When the first film was released in 2015, it hit at the exact right time to capitalize on the success of the book series. I had always assumed that the excitement for the series would die down. I could never have anticipated that the sequel trailer would beat out Star Wars: the Force Awakens to become the most-viewed trailer in the first 24 hours of release. Find out how many more views Fifty Shades Darker beats Star Wars by, after the jump.

Fifty Shades Darker inherited its two leads from the last installment of the nascent BDSM franchise, Fifty Shades of Grey, but it’s got some new characters to introduce as well. The first addition to the sequel cast is Kim Basinger as Elena Lincoln, sort of the Mrs. Robinson to Christian Grey’s Ben Braddock. But kinkier, of course, because Fifty Shades. Read More »
