Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey are back. The movie picks up from where it left in Fifty Shades Of Grey. Ana tries to move on from her relationship with Grey, but is reminded of him again and again. Grey is love hurt and tries to convince Ana to move back in. New conditions are laid..this time by Ana. But, Christian’s past comes back, threatening to tear them apart. Ana is disgusted with Elena..Christian’s business partner, who seduced him when he was only 15 years old, and initially introduced him to that lifestyle. Ana is stalked by one of Grey’s former submissives. Can they survive it all?
Based on the bestselling novels by British author E.L. James, the movie is the second instalment in the trilogy: Fifty Shades of Grey..Fifty Shades Darker.. and .. Fifty Shades Freed. The novels are known for their explicit erotic scenes featuring elements of sexual practices involving bondage, submission, and masochism. The trailer has garnered over 114 Million Views in 24 hours. The movie has been given an R rating for ‘strong erotic sexual content, some graphic nudity and language.’
What to anticipate:
Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan return to reprise the role of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey for the second time in Fifty Shades Darker. The new trailer has got a huge positive response and it does look promising.
The new director James Foley , hopefully will bring up the charm of the novel and their characters unlike the first movie directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson.
To be very true, the first part was flat. The duo lacked chemistry and it was pretty awkward to see their love scenes.
The trailer makes sure to give a glimpse of the intense heat between Ana and Grey. The restaurant scene, the scene in the elevator and the shower scene are the most talked about scenes of the trailer clubbed with intense dialogues paired with dressing and strip down scenes.
“Your Boyfriend Has A Reputation..”
“Take Them Off..”
“Do You Think You Are The First Woman Who Has Tried To Save Him?”
“Are You Just Gonn’a Stand There Gawking?…… YES!”
According to reports, this movie was said to be “more of a thriller” and it does look so. The point where we see Ana seeing a woman everywhere, as if she was stalking her and then her disappearance does give a chilling sensation.
With new actors like Rita Ora and Kim Basinger joining the cast of the movie, it sure would be an interesting watch. Also, We wish Dakota Johnson does more than the flat acting expressions she gave in the last movie.
The movie is set to release world-wide near Valentine’s Day in 2017. But, For all our Indian audiences.. the wait will be a little longer. Since, Fifty Shades of Grey was banned and the CBFC hasn’t become much progressive since then. This too is bound to bite the dust. Wait for some good person to make it available online!!
