Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan and Kim Basinger Star in the Trailer for Fifty Shades Darker
Posted on September 13, 2016
The first trailer for the Fifty Shades of Grey sequel, Fifty Shades Darker has landed and yes, it is definitely darker. In this sequel Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) has left billionaire Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan). They reunite, but Ana is plunged into Christian's dark past. She meets the women that came before and they are all quite unhappy at being shoved out of Christian's life.
The most entertaining ex is Elena Lincoln, whom Ana refers to as Mrs. Robinson. Elena is the older beauty (Kim Basinger) who was a teenaged Christian's first love. She taught him lots of things, that is for sure.
Ana also meets Christian's younger ex-girlfriend, Leila Williams (Bella Heathcote). Leila is very jealous of Ana and will do whatever it takes to break them up. The trailer has lots of images of parties, sailing trips, masks and dramatic reveals. But the best by far is the appearance of Kim Basinger, who is still remembered for her own darker film 9 1/2 Weeks.
The film also stars Marcia Gay Harden, Tyler Hoechlin, Hugh Dancy, Luke Grimes, Eric Johnson and Rita Ora. The film was directed by James Foley. Take a look:
