With sixty-six days to go, Fifty Shades debuted a second trailer for the hotly anticipated second installment to the movie franchise, Fifty Shades Darker. With a cluster of new, never-before-seen moments, the trailer has ignited across social media and is a current worldwide trending topic.
Watch the trailer below before we start discussing! (NSFW)
The trailer, released only hours ago shows us more than we were expecting in the 2:29 it runs for. It starts like the last trailer – Christian proclaiming his feelings for Anastasia, five days post-breakup. “I’m not very good at this. I never wanted to try again,” but with Ana, things are different. Christian is different. He sends Ana white roses prior to surprising her at José’s photo exhibit, where he asks her to dinner. “Have dinner with me,” he pleads to which Ana (with her smart mouth) replies “OK fine. I will have dinner with you, because I’m hungry. But we are only talking and that’s it,” which we as readers of the novels know will not be the case. The next scene in which we see Ana paying for meal, much to Christian’s dismay, is not the scene in which they go for dinner after the show but it still showcases the humour that we hoped director James Foley would incorporate from the first film. Ana takes the cheque dropped off by the waiter and adds a subtle “Gotta be quicker than that, Grey,” as she reaches for her wallet.
Kate has returned from her trip to Barbados with Elliot and we can see Ana jumping into her arms at the bar we saw in the first film. Since Kate has been away for most of the unfolding drama, she knows nothing of what’s happened. Kate wraps Ana in her arms and asks “Are you happy?” to which Ana quickly replies “I’ve never been happier.”
Let’s jump to a steamy, romantic dinner between Christian and Ana where things quickly get hot, hot, HOT! Christian, ever the gentleman and always the dominant, leans over the table covered in glasses of wine and fine silver and simply tells Anastasia to “…take ’em off.” At this point, the two have solidified their relationship and are moving forward from the traumatic experiences they both suffered in the first movie. Anastasia complies and deftly removes her panties while remaining at the table. What happens next has all types of bothered. If you’ve read the books, you know that in the next scene that is shown, Christian isn’t being a gentleman, at all! While his fingers deftly ride up the back of Anastasia’s legs in a crowded elevator after dinner, her expression says it all and exactly what Christian is doing with her. We’re then catapulted into the shower scene; a sexy, heated take that find Christian and Ana fully clothed going at it in his extravagant bathroom – a scene a lot of fans were hoping to see! That clip is then followed by the pool scene; not a swimming pool. Ana and Christian are playing the game with cues, after making a bet with each other. The prize?! Sex, in each their own way.
Finally, we get to see some Jack! Eric Johnson who plays Ana’s intrusive new boss at SIP feels compelled to tell Ana his personal feelings towards her new beau. “Your boyfriend has a reputation,” he says, eluding that he may know more about Christian’s past than he leads us to believe. “Do you want to be kept, or have respect,” he whispers to Ana while having her pinned between himself and a door, then watches her stride away. Creepy!
Let’s jump to a new shower scene where Ana is freely touching Christian. This time, they’re not fully clothed but enjoying a shower as they should with each other. Enter Mrs. Robinson. Yes we’ve seen Elena (Kim Basinger) in the previous trailer with a voice over part, but never before have we seen her so abruptly with the voice over now matching her voice. “Do you think you’re the first woman who’s tried to save him,” she asks Ana. “He’s changing. Its not what he wants anymore,” Ana retorts, to which Elena firmly suggests “…but it’s what he needs.” Ana and Christian are also seen sleeping in the same bed together, which was previously one of Christian’s rules, now broken. We then get a flash of scenes; one of Ana in Christian stealing a kiss from each other and a quick glance at Leila (Christian’s ex submissive) stalking Ana from afar as she exits SIP with Jack.
Our hearts immediately jump into our throats with what we see next – In the first trailer we saw Charlie Tango going down but this time, we see it crash! Although we know Christian ends up with only a few scratches in the end, seeing what we’ve read come to life has definitely got us emotional.
In quick five frame segments, we then we quickly examine the next set of scenes flashing before our eyes: Christian on his knees in front of a topless Ana, a sexy scene which has Ana arching her back in wanton, Christian picking Ana up while in his gym and placing her on a piece of equipment as he rips open his shirt, and a sexy whisper at the masquerade ball. We then climb up Ana’s legs, adorned in high fashion lingerie while Christian’s stares from across the room. “You just going to stand there gawking,” she asks, to which he quickly replies “Yes.”
We’re then blasted yet again into quick segments showcasing the drama, the secrets, the past all coming back to haunt Christian. No matter how hard he tries, his past is catching up with him and it’s time to face those demons.
The lasts scene from the new trailer truly does have us in fifty shades of emotions. From sadness, to anger, to love and hope, we get our first glance at submissive Christian, who falls to his knees after he thinks Ana is leaving him. In a heart tugging move, Christian grabs Ana’s hand and places it upon his bare chest; an action he has trusted no one to accomplish before.
The entirety of the trailer is consumed by Miguel’s version of ‘Crazy in Love’ by Beyoncé and we think it adds just the right touch. Miguel is still hard at work in the studio finalizing the version for film.
So, what did you think? Was it everything you hoped for and more? We’d love to hear your thoughts and comments so please do so by leaving them in the comment section below.
On a personal note, of all the trailers released, this is by far EJD’s favourite. It’s shown that the films are staying true to the books and that those little scenes that often don’t make it into the movies (because some consider them less important) are indeed being accounted for. It’s those small scenes that make the difference; they’re the scenes that build the foundation of the story and missing them in the movie is always heart breaking. We’re thankful Team Fifty is working so hard behind the scenes to make sure we get the best of the best!
But that’s not all the news we were hit with today! As members of the #OfficialFifty Campaign for Darker, we are more than excited to share the premiere news with you!

News hit social media yesterday that during today’s broadcasting of the 2016 Latin Grammy Awards, fans of Jamie Dornan and Fifty Shades Darker would get a brand-new glimpse of Jamie as Christian Grey in a new Latin TV Spot for the film.

Dornan and co-star Dakota Johnson filmed scenes during most of the spring and early summer in Vancouver’s Gastown, a popular downtown collective of local businesses.

Great, right?!Not many things can get you so easily excited in only forty-five seconds so this is the exception. In this quick TV spot, we see some scenes we’ve seen before (because they can’t give absolutely everything away, obviously) and others that clearly haven’t met our eyeballs until now!
The second film finds Christian and Ana reconnecting and boy it looks like they’re doing just fine! In two separate scenes, the pair are seen exploring their new found sexual freedom as an actual couple after Christian realizes he can’t be without Ana. Ya, we’re just cutting to the chase here.
We even got some extra glimpses of Leila, Christian’s ex subon the hunt for Ana and Jack, Ana’ssuper handsy, lacking boundaries, boss – The parts of the film that will offer up the most action and a glimpse into Christian’s troubled past. A darker past. Which Ana is unknowingly changing. So much so that, well… Let’s just say there’s lots of hearts and flowers.

Jamie recently sat down with ICON EL PAÍS to discuss The Fall, Fifty Shades of Grey and his time spent as a teen with friends Eddie Redmayne and Andrew Garfield. Although the article was originally printed in Spanish, EJD has spent some time translating the article into proper English. Read below and enjoy!
It took one decade for the ex model from Belfast to be acknowledged as an actor. Now, Jamie Dornan fights to get rid of Grey’s shadow. Thanks to roles like the psychopath in “The Fall” or the heroic soldier from “The Siege of Jadotville” (the Netflix Original that will be released on Netflix October 7th,) it looks like he won’t need to wait another decade this time. He talked to us in an exclusive interview for ICON.
There are Twitter accounts dedicated to celebrating the shapes of his arms. Advertising images where this ex-model appeared cuddled up with Kate Moss, or smeared with oil along with Eva Mendes, form part of the popular imagery of the past decade. Media as prestigious as The New York Times nicknamed him ‘The Golden Torso’ and a trailer for the second installment of the Fifty Shades series – where he plays the most mysterious icon of our age: a millionaire fond of sadomasochistic sex – sent millions of fans into a frenzy counting down the days until the premiere (February 10, 2017). Jamie Dornan, however, is the one that seems to care the least. Northern Ireland’s 34 year old clearly wants to offer something more than a godlike physique. He could have spent his days signing a never ending stream of advertising contracts while continuing to be shown half naked but instead decided to pursue acting. After facing some criticism, Dornan landed the role in the UK television series ‘The Fall’, where he plays a psychopath from his native city of Belfast. The Fall has just released its third season, and it’s in that television series that Dornan proves his depth as an actor. His latest film, a stark contrast to his role as Christian Grey, also showcases Dornan’s talent. ‘The Siege of Jadotville,’ which debuts on Netflix October 7, is inspired by a true story. In 1961, during the war of Katanga, a secessionist province of Congo, an Irish battalion of 150 soldiers sent by the United Nations was attacked by some 3000 men of the local army assisted by French and Belgian mercenaries. There were five days of fierce fighting, but this battle was excluded from the official history of Ireland. “I had no idea about this battle. It was kept secret for years for several reasons, which I find embarrassing since it shows Irish heroics on a large scale” He explains in his County Down accent, after a photo shoot in which he had been amicable and sociable, spontaneous and somewhat foul-mouthed.
Why did you get into the film business? I don’t have the proper attitude for working in an office. From a young age, I knew that I was not that kind of person. I lack the patience to sit in front of a computer. I had no idea what I would do, but I think that all those who work in film feel compelled at a young age. I started theatre at the age of 13; I wanted to be a different person and express myself accordingly than my friends on the rugby team. It was clear I wanted to be an actor. I felt comfortable in a world that allowed me to be the person people weren’t expecting me to be.
AND WE THOUGHT YESTERDAY’S TEASER WAS AMAZING. Universal Pictures released the very first full length trailer to Fifty Shades Darker today and we’ve been fangirling, and fan-boying, all day long. Take a look below and watch the goosebumps grow!
Are you alive?! Yeah, us either. The trailer has some awesome scenes in it and really provides the fans with the ‘darker’ atmosphere of the film.
In the beginning, you can see Jack, Ana’s boss, watching the fireworks display at the Grey Mansion from afar while the trailer then leads into Christian giving a gift to Ana, followed by the reveal of their masquerade ball masks and a burning questions left by Christian. “Intrigued?” he asks Anastasia, and we’re guessing she more than is!
We’re then whisked away to the ball where the flow of magic, dancing, lights leaves us captivated. Following this short scene, Ana is surprised by a votive of white long stemmed roses, sent by Christian in an attempt to get back his girl. “I want you back… I had no idea what this was going to become. Christian proclaims, while Ana responds with “I don’t see how this can work.” Christian is devastated at what he lost a mere five days ago and is desperate to have Ana back. In the next scene, he’s seen (what looks to be) surprising her at José’s art exhibit, where in the book, they traveled to the show together. Nevertheless, Ana is caught completely off guard when she sees a sullen Christian standing only a few feet away from her.
Next up, we head into what looks like Escala, Christian’s home, where Anastasia is dressed in her evening gown from the ball, while Christian ‘gawks’ at her, as she details in the trailer. “Are you just going to stand there, gawking?” “Yes,” Christian proclaims, because he’s Christian Grey and if he wants to gawk, he’ll gawk.
Onward into the bathroom where a heated shower scene and a half-naked Christian takes back his beloved Ana with formidable force. Ana doesn’t seem to mind – and why would she?! The two are seen embracing passionately, careful not too give too much away. But damn – can we just talk about this man’s Michelangelo physique for a second?! *insert heart eyes* Dornan as Grey is certainly how we expected him to be, and then some!
Next, we’re catapulted into the Grey’s pool house, where Christian will *spoiler* eventually propose to Ana at the end of the film. He begs the question “What do you want, Anastasia?”while the response is nothing short of curt. Ana gets to the point – if he wants to be with her, then he’s going to have to conform to her and abandon his previous lifestyle. “This time, no rules. No punishments. And no more secrets,” expressing the need for a vulnerable Christian – one who wants to share his world with her and she wants to share it with him.
But speaking of secrets, next we find Ana and Christian sleeping in Ana’s bed at her apartment. While Ana tosses and turns, she sees the image of a woman at the end of her bed, the bed Grey is sound asleep in. At second glance, she sees nothing there – but we the fans know that Leila is quietly lurking in the shadows, intrigued by Miss Steele.
Now if that wasn’t creepy enough, what the heck does Jack think he’s doing? Barricading Ana in his office, with a silent ‘Shhhh’ as his fingers approach his lips. This is our first glimpse of Eric Johnson (hilariously funny man) as the sinister Jack Hyde.
But let’s up the macabre level a bit more and add in Christian’s first Dominant, Elena – FINALLY a glimpse of Kim Basigner as the intimidating, blonde bombshell, Elena. Her role has us extremely feverish and wanting to see more of her in the film. Elena is seen at the ball as Ana walks vigorously away from her – a tell tale sign that the two have had a confrontation of sorts. What’s happened?!
As scenes quickly begin to change in flashes of white light, we see Ana get out of her car, Christian and Taylor in tow, with expressions of shock and disbelief plastered across their faces. Is this where they see that someone has doused Ana’s car in red paint? Who could it have been?
Finally, a barrage of scenes occur, where Ana and Christian are seen overlooking a file on Ana, Charlie Tango (Christian’s helicopter) in mid tailspin, an eerie visitor in the stairway at the Grey Mansion during the ball and Ana rushing out of SIP into the embrace of her dark knight.
Lastly, the trailer ends with Ana, alone in her apartment, while Elena’s voice is heard in the background saying “Do you think you’re the first woman who’s tried to save him?” It’s slowly revealed that Ana is not in fact alone in her apartment as the camera shifts and reveals Leila standing behind her.
A beautifully well done trailer that delivers on all levels. We all had an idea on what we’d like to see in the trailer and I think it pretty much covered it, without giving too much away.
One thing’s for sure, we’ll be watching it again and again and again and again until it’s what our dreams are made of. Bravo on an excellent first trailer – it’s definitely made the wait until February a little more bearable.
