When trying to figure out the rationale of the characters in Fifty Shades Darker, it’s best to remember that these people are based on less than stellar source material. Yes, the Fifty Shades film franchise continues on with Fifty Shades Darker, and despite the fact that it is supposed to be based on the best of the three popular books, the film fails to learn from its mistakes. Instead, it’s an unintentionally funny filler that goes nowhere fast and crashes and burns upon impact. Despite that rousing criticism, one can’t help but watch how much worse this can get. My full review below.
Universal Pictures has released the second official trailer to Fifty Shades Darker starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, who return as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. The film is a sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey, which ended awkwardly, I might add. However, devoted fans knew that the story wasn’t over, with this being a trilogy.
In the new trailer for the sequel, we see the two rekindle that relationship that involves kinky PDA, ghosts from Christian’s past, and other people who will complicate their relationship. Because what’s a good soapy drama without that. Check out the full trailer below.
Yesterday, Universal released a 20 second teaser for Fifty Shades Darker. As far as teasers for trailers go, it didn’t offer much insight as to what will be happening to Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) in the second installment of the Fifty Shades of Grey sequel.
Now the studio has released the full trailer that gives a more dark details on how these two conflicted lovebirds will handle the new drama that includes former lovers who are determined to see their love shattered. Check out the full trailer below.
Say what you will about Fifty Shades Of Grey, but if the film can gross a worldwide total of $571 million against a budget of $40 million and be nominated for one Academy Award, all the while being critically panned, well it must be doing something right. Granted, I wasn’t a huge fan of the film as a whole, but there were some interesting shots and lighting selections that caught my eye, and no, none of those involved the more “intimate” scenes.
So with its box office success and huge fanbase, there are many who are interested in seeing what could happen in its sequel, Fifty Shades Darker. And now Universal is giving you a sneak peek at what to expect from it. Check it out the teaser to the trailer here below.
Universal Pictures is still on the lookout for a director to helm Fifty Shades Darker, the sequel to Fifty Shades Of Grey. Given the reports of conflict on set between Sam Taylor-Johnson and Fifty Shades Trilogy author EL James, a replacement director had to be found. Now it looks like Universal is close. According to a number of reports the studio is close to closing a deal with James Foley to helm the sequel, but another report says that he is only on a short list of directors the studio is considering.
