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.
Fifty Shades of Grey was adapted from the bestselling book by E. L. James and wound up being an equally massive success on the big screen. The movie grossed a very impressive $571 million worldwide on a relatively small $40 million production budget. It didn’t seem to matter that critics didn’t care for the movie, which currently sits at a 25 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Universal is hoping to repeat that success with Fifty Shades Darker, and they very well should be able to, given that they seem to have all of the pieces in place that made the first one so sizzling and successful.
Sam Taylor-Johnson did not return to direct this installment. Instead, James Foley has come on board to direct both Fifty Shades Darker and the third installment, Fifty Shades Freed, which already has a February 9, 2018, release date. Fifty Shades Darker is set for release on February 10, 2017, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Fifty Shades Darker is an upcoming American erotic romantic drama film directed by James Foley and written by Niall Leonard, based on a novel of same name by British author E. L. James. It is the second film in the Fifty Shades film series, and a sequel to 2015 film Fifty Shades of Grey. The film stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan as Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey.
Principal photography on Fifty Shades Darker and its sequel Fifty Shades Freed began on February 9, 2016, in Paris and Vancouver. It is set to be released on February 10, 2017.
