Fifty Shades Darker trailer is steamy, daring, and ups the ante

The latest trailer for ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ has given us our longest look yet at the upcoming erotic drama, and Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey are up to the sort of shenanigans that you’d expect.

The clip begins with Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) in hot pursuit of Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson), who finally succumbs to just dinner at first before then falling back into a relationship with her former beau.

It’s at this point that the trailer then begins to really get steamy. Not only does Christian insist that Anastasia every so slightly undress in public, but then things get altogether more daring in a packed elevator.

In between shots of the characters reconnecting physically we also get a tease of the film’s plot. Anastasia’s editor clearly has an issue with Christian Grey, and isn’t afraid to give her both a longing look and get all up in her grill in a way that HR clearly wouldn’t be happy with.

Then Kim Basinger’s Elena Lincoln teases Anastasia by asking, “Do you think you’re the first woman who has tried to save him?” while a brunette continues to haunt and apparently stalk the pair, all of which suggests that Christian Grey’s past is going to cause them quite a few issues.

Oh yeah, there’s also a helicopter crash for good measure, while also the ciip teases that ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ will go all ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ on us, too.

The sequel to 2015’s ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’, which grossed $571 million, ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ will finally be with UK audiences on February 10, 2017. Just in time for Valentine’s Day.
