LOS ANGELES (AP) – Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele are back and steaming up the screen in the first trailer for “Fifty Shades Darker.” Universal Pictures released the promotional spot Tuesday for the sequel to “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
Set to a Miguel rendition of Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love,” the trailer features stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan giving each other smoldering stares even through their masquerade attire. The story deals with Christian’s attempts to woo Ana back into his life.
Created by author E L James, the “Fifty Shades” series became a cultural phenomenon. The 2015 film, directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson, grossed over $570 million worldwide.
“Fear” filmmaker James Foley has taken over in the director’s chair for “Fifty Shades Darker,” which hits theaters Feb. 10, right in time for Valentine’s Day.
