Fifty Shades Darker review image

Fifty Shades Darker
Director: James Foley
Screenwriter: Niall Leonard
Cast: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Kim Basinger, Luke Grimes, Eloise Mumford, Max Martini
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated R | 158 minutes
Release Date: February 10, 2017

When trying to figure out the rationale of the characters in Fifty Shades Darker, it’s best to remember that these people are based on less than stellar source material. Yes, the Fifty Shades film franchise continues on with Fifty Shades Darker, and despite the fact that it is supposed to be based on the best of the three popular books, the film fails to learn from its mistakes. Instead, it’s an unintentionally funny filler that goes nowhere fast and crashes and burns upon impact. Despite that rousing criticism, one can’t help but watch how much worse this can get. My full review below.

Fifty Shades Darker Trailer

Universal Pictures has released the second official trailer to Fifty Shades Darker starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, who return as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. The film is a sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey, which ended awkwardly, I might add. However, devoted fans knew that the story wasn’t over, with this being a trilogy.

In the new trailer for the sequel, we see the two rekindle that relationship that involves kinky PDA, ghosts from Christian’s past, and other people who will complicate their relationship. Because what’s a good soapy drama without that. Check out the full trailer below.

Say what you will about Fifty Shades Of Grey, but if the film can gross a worldwide total of $571 million against a budget of $40 million and be nominated for one Academy Award, all the while being critically panned, well it must be doing something right. Granted, I wasn’t a huge fan of the film as a whole, but there were some interesting shots and lighting selections that caught my eye, and no, none of those involved the more “intimate” scenes.

So with its box office success and huge fanbase, there are many who are interested in seeing what could happen in its sequel, Fifty Shades Darker. And now Universal is giving you a sneak peek at what to expect from it. Check it out the teaser to the trailer here below.

Fifty Shades of Grey Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan

Universal Pictures is still on the lookout for a director to helm Fifty Shades Darker, the sequel to Fifty Shades Of Grey. Given the reports of conflict on set between Sam Taylor-Johnson and Fifty Shades Trilogy author EL James, a replacement director had to be found. Now it looks like Universal is close. According to a number of reports the studio is close to closing a deal with James Foley to helm the sequel, but another report says that he is only on a short list of directors the studio is considering.

More on the story below.

Fifty Shades of Grey

Production problems on Fifty Shades of Grey between director Sam Taylor-Johnson and author E.L. James are well-known.

50 Shades Of Grey

Of course a novel series like Fifty Shades of Grey with a huge fanbase would get a big-screen adaptation, and despite the production problems – casting, chemistry between leads Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, the disagreements between director Sam Taylor-Johnson and series author E.L. James – the film was the top earner at the box office, and was one of the highest grossing R-rated movies in the month of February, even though it was widely panned by critics for those same chemistry issues and a very weak script.

It’s highly unlikely that Taylor-Johnson would want to endure another six months of harping from James over the script and vision, which is probably why she hasn’t stepped up to say she is on board for 50 Shades Darker. Now, with word that James wants to write the script for the Fifty Shades sequel, the director is already out the door. Hit the jump for more.

Fifty Shades Of Grey

Like it or not, the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie is happening. One of the more difficult novels to adapt because of its highly sexualized content, Sam Taylor-Johnson‘s adaptation of the popular first novel in E.L. James’ erotica trilogy opens this weekend, Insiders are saying that the film is already $60 million in advance at the box office, and early ticket sales are showing that it is one of the fastest-selling R-rated movies on online ticket sites like Fandango.

Sure the first Fifty Shades has yet to open and prove itself at the box office, but because of those early ticket sales and favorable projections, Universal has already greenlit the big-screen adaptations of the sequels Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed. Hit the jump for more.
