An extended trailer for Universal’s “Fifty Shades Darker” dropped during the ABC show’s season premiere, showing more steamy footage from the sequel. In it, Christian’s (Jamie Dornan) trying to get Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) back, and she even agrees to dinner — but only because she’s hungry.
“This time, no rules,” says Anastasia. “No punishments, and no more secrets.”
It does indeed, however, get a lot “Darker” when a mysterious woman starts to appear, and Anastasia begins questioning rekindling the flame as sexy shower scenes make way for gunplay. Taylor Swift and Zayn Malik’s “I Don’t Want to Live Forever” provides the soundtrack.
“Every fairy tale has a dark side,” the trailer’s tagline warns.
Hugh Dancy, Eric Johnson, Jennifer Ehle, Luke Grimes, Rita Ora, Victor Rasuk, Eloise Mumford, Max Martini, Bella Heathcote, Kim Basinger, and Marcia Gay Harden also star. James Foley directs, taking over for Sam Taylor-Johnson, who helmed “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
“Fifty Shades Darker” will hit theaters on Feb. 10. A third film, “Fifty Shades Freed,” has also already landed a Feb. 9, 2018, release date.
