They wanted it hot and steamy and on the evidence of the second full UK trailer for Fifty Shades Darker, you will get all steamy under the collar. Not forgetting sex in a shower a wee fondle in the elevator! Ladies lock up your sons, stick on Sky Sports for the old man, stick on those old Daniel O’Donnell records for Mammy,This will be two minutes of pure ecstasy that not even the man with the Milk Tray could deliver.
In the latest trailer full of inappropriate but naughty pleasure Anastasia and Christian are certainly ‘Crazy In Love’, but Mr Grey has a few issues. Is it still no more secrets, no more rules?
In Fifty Shades Of Darker a wounded Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) tries to entice a cautious Ana Steele (Dakota Johnson) 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.
Did we just witness the new When Harry Met Sally ‘fake orgasm’ in the deli scene ala Meg Ryan? The elevator may have been crowded it didn’t stop Dakota Johnson belting out her best impression of Meg Ryan. I’m not going to kid myself I know everything about Fifty Shades books, just hard to believe they started life as Twilight fan fiction. I’ve never seen the first movie though you can guess the sex scenes are nowhere close to what they are in the book if they where we probably be promoting a porn movie instead.
There does look like we have a stalkeresque issue going on, could we see Fifty Shades Darker dive into Brian DePalma territory? Probably more Eyes Wide Shut but who is this mysterious sultry brunette from Christian’s past? This looks as kinky, erotic as ever becoming a cash cow for Universal. Despite the windfall at the box office how many of those folks will be back for some more? Or will it be one for the hardcore fans?
