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.
The next adaption from author E L JAMES’ seismic and culture-spanning series to hit the big screen, Fifty Shades Darker exploded onto the scene in September 2016, when its online trailer debut resulted in world-record figures. Racking up 114 million views in 24 hours—and besting the reigning highest-performing full-length trailer, Star Wars: The Force Awakens—this tease to a more dangerous side of one couple’s rich and mysterious world gave audiences a taste of what to expect when a fairy tale doesn’t play by the rules.
Their story continues as a wounded Christian Grey tries to entice a cautious Anastasia Steele back into his life…and 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 them, determined to destroy any hopes for a future together.
