The second official trailer of the erotic romance film “Fifty Shades Darker” has been released recently and it has been creating quite a stir as it is clearly more informative and steamier than the first one released last year.
Dakota Johnson, who plays Anastasia Steele, in the movie was a bit prettier and sexier in the sequel to “Fifty Shades of Grey” that was shown in February 2015. Jamie Dornan, who plays Christian Grey, still looks very handsome and manly that he is when the first movie was shown.
Unlike the first movie which was seemingly groping for form as it gradually introduced the characters from the novel of E.L. James, “Fifty Shades Darker,” which would be hitting theaters on February 10, already knows what direction it wants to head, which is why it looks exciting based on the latest trailer.
Based on the trailer of “Fifty Shades Darker,” it would seem that Christian and Ana would have a reconciliation at the beginning, months after they parted ways at the end of “Fifty Shades of Grey” because as what Christian told her, he cannot imagine his life without her.
The 120-second trailer also got a big boost from its music track, which was a collaboration between former One Direction band member Zayn Malik and pop star Taylor Swift, which critics believe, was far better that the “Crazy in Love” version of Beyonce in the first trailer where the singing seemed to have been coming from high up in the clouds, details The Guardian.
Showing the film’s motto
It seems at first in the trailer that the romance of Christian and Ana were all beds of roses, comparing it to a fairy tale romance.
However, the teaser also hinted the film’s motto that every fairy tale has a dark side and it appears that it will come in the form of Christian’s past who would be haunting Ana.
Suddenly, a girl pops out of nowhere and keeps on doing the same to Ana. The mysterious woman appears to be a figure from Christian’s past.
And she seems to have revenge on her mind but instead of being angry on Christian, she appears to be jealous that the billionaire playboy is now dating and putting to his bed Ana. Ana uncomfortably feels that she keeps on showing up in the least expected of moments.
Then there is also Mrs. Robinson, played by Kim Basinger, the woman who taught Christian Grey the art of BDSM and he was her submissive, based on the source material. Apparently, the woman who keeps on showing up on Ana’s view is the first submissive of Christian after Mrs. Robinson.
Ana also has her own issues at work as her boss, Jack Hyde, seems to also have the hots for her and wants to get into her pants but she appears to have really fallen for Christian the second time around.
Steamier than the first
Although there were no BDSM moments shown in the second trailer of “Fifty Shades Darker,” it was certainly steamier especially the shower scene, several bed scenes, and the elevator scene where Christian seems to have touched Ana while the elevator has other people around, which was really sexy say most critics.
The trailer also showed how Christian and Ana reconciled. First, he bought her flowers, then he invited her to dinner. But since Ana is now her own woman, she agrees to go to dinner with Christian, but only because she says she’s hungry.
Then she pays the dinner bill, even though the restaurant only serves tea and the only other customers are women in silly hats. Then, finally, she beats him at a pool game.
There was also a scene in the trailer showing a crashing helicopter which had Christian on it.
While Christian was recuperating, that is where the issues between the woman and Ana started occurring more frequently, including one where she was pointing a gun at Ana as Christian walks in.
