When the first Fifty Shades of Grey movie came out, I grabbed a bottle of wine and ran to my closest theatre like every other woman in America to see the premiere. We’ve all heard the cold, hard truths about the books—they’re not exactly what you’d call “great literature,” but that’s fine. You don’t exactly read Fifty Shades of Grey because you think its top notch intellectual stimulation. You read it because it’s top notch physical stimulation. The sex scenes are hot, like really hot, and we got to see a taste of them in the first movie. But the second book is my favorite, and up until now all we’ve had to bring those play-by-play fantasies in Fifty Shades Darker to life was the power of imagination. Luckily, some of that torture ends today.
The brand new trailer for Fifty Shades Darker debuted this morning, a welcome two minutes of steamy intrigue for those of us watching it at work and trying to make sure no one sees the computer screen. It looks like the second movie will follow the second book pretty closely, with a few new characters making their appearances, including the one Anastasia refers to as Mrs. Robinson, the older woman who seduced Christian as a teenager. The second book is exactly what the name suggests — a darker addition to the story. The vibe of the movie is secretive, ominous even, and, of course, hot as hell.
The movie premieres in theaters on February 10th, 2017. I won’t even bother acting like I won’t be there at midnight with another bottle of wine the night that it’s released. Until then, though, I’ll be busy re-reading Fifty Shades Darker for the fourth time and shopping online for a silver masquerade mask. Later, babes..
