A new "Fifty Shades Darker" trailer is here to spice up this Christmas season. Watch Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan return as not-so-wholesome ingenue Anastasia Steele and S&M-loving billionaire Christian Grey, who can't help but get their freak on, even during a simple dinner reservation.
This time helmed by James Foley, the veteran Hollywood director of "At Close Range," "Fear," and "Glengarry Glen Ross" and who recently directed episodes of Netflix's "House of Cards," the forthcoming sequel to the 2015 erotic blockbuster also stars Kim Basinger, Eric Johnson, Tyler Hoechlin, Hugh Dancy, and Bella Heathcote.
Adapted by British TV writer Niall Leonard, who just so happens to be the husband of "Fifty Shades" author E.L. James, "Fifty Shades Darker" is due to hit theaters on February 10, 2017 -- just in time for Valentine's Day.
Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson return as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades Darker, the second chapter based on the worldwide bestselling "Fifty Shades" phenomenon. Expanding upon events set in motion in 2015's blockbuster film that grossed more than $560 million globally, the new installment arrives for Valentine's Day and invites you to slip into something a shade darker.
When a wounded Christian Grey tries to entice a cautious Ana Steele back into his life, she demands a new arrangement before she will give him another chance. As the two begin to build trust and find stability, shadowy figures from Christian's past start to circle the couple, determined to destroy their hopes for a future together.
