First look: A tease of romance and a smouldering Jamie Dornan in Fifty Shades Darker trailer
Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson return as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades Darker teaser trailer.
Fifty Shades Darker is, of course, the sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey - the adaptation of E.L. James erotic novels of the same name.
For the second installment of the Fifty Shades phenomenon, a wounded Christian Grey tries to entice a cautious Ana Steele back into his life but she demands a new arrangement before she will give him another chance.
As the two begin to build trust and find stability, shadowy figures from Christian’s past start to circle the couple, determined to destroy their hopes for a future together.
The events build upon the 2015 blockbuster which saw director Sam Taylor-Johnson at the helm. She stepped down from the sequel and was replaced by James Foley (who also directed Fear, The Corrupter and a few House of Cards episodes).
Academy award-winner Marcia Gay Harden returns for the sequel, alongside Jennifer Ehle, Luke Grimes, Rita Ora, Victor Rasuk, Eloise Mumford and Max Martini, who are joined for the first time by Oscar-winner Kim Basinger, Hugh Dancy, Bella Heathcote and Eric Johnson.
Fans will have to wait until next year to see the full movie as it's not scheduled for release until February 10, 2017 but in the meantime let the teaser trailer get you all hot and bothered.
