'Fifty Shades', the book that brought kinky sex mainstream, is back in film form. The official trailer for 'Fifty Shades Darker' has been viewed more than 17 million times on YouTube, and whether you love or hate the franchise, the new film is probably going to either get you off or outraged all over again.

When 'Fifty Shades' first hit bookshelves in 2011, people got all hot and bothered. The series sold more than 150 million copies worldwide. With the films, starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, the 'Fifty Shades' version of hot sex became visual and explicit, not just living in readers' imaginations. The audience was predominantly women, mostly in their 30s, 40s and 50s.
