Fifty Shades Darker gets an Honest Trailer

9 May 2017 12:04 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

For the latest instalment of Honest Trailers, Screen Junkies has turned its attention to the second chapter of Universal’s Fifty Shades of Grey series, Fifty Shades Darker.

Watch as this two hour movie about sex only features about 10 minutes of sex and Anastasia Steele spends the entire time attempting (in vein) to show human emotion while they scale back the bondage and amp up the normal boring couple stuff.

When a wounded Christian Grey tries to entice a cautious Ana Steele back into his life, 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.

Fifty Shades Darker movie review: where is the fantasy?

14 February 2017 3:13 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… Thank god this insult of a movie doesn’t try to fool us into believing that the controlling Christian Grey is appealing. That would be even more horrific… I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): appalled by the popularity of this series

I have read the source material (and I loathe it)

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Happy Valentine’s Day! Feels more like Groundhog Day, though, what with demure idiot Ana Steele jumping right back onto the horrific merry-go-round of her “relationship” with Seattle billionaire Christian Grey. It’s more of the same in Fifty Shades Darker that we saw in the first movie, Fifty Shades of Grey: He does something utterly inappropriate to violate her boundaries as a person, she bites her lip and unconvincingly murmurs “Go away,” he gets even more unpleasantly aggressive, and she gives in to him. »

Lego Batman Movie Beats Fifty Shades, John Wick at the Box Office

12 February 2017 11:56 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Before The Hunger Games set box office records in March 2012, that month wasn't normally considered one to launch a franchise. Lately, February has been a go-to month to launch some unconventional blockbusters, following the success of Warner Bros.' The Lego Movie ($69 million opening, $469.1 million worldwide). Fifty Shades of Grey ($85.1 million opening weekend, $571 million worldwide), Kingsman: The Secret Service ($36.2 million opening weekend, $414.3 million worldwide) and the R-rated Deadpool ($132.4 million debut, $783.1 million worldwide). This year, three highly-anticipated movies square off, with The Lego Movie spin-off The Lego Batman movie facing a pair of R-rated sequels, Universal's sexually-charged erotic drama Fifty Shades Darker and Lionsgate's action-packed John Wick: Chapter 2. As expected, all three newcomers fared quite well, but The Lego Batman Movie came out on top with $55.6 million.

Box Office Mojo reports that The Lego Batman Movie debuted in 4,088 theaters, with this animated spin-off earning an impressive $13,609. Fifty Shades Darker opened in second place with $46.7 million, »

Premiere Interviews: Fifty Shades Darker with Dakota Johnson, E. L. James & more

9 February 2017 1:57 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

This evening a chilly capital was warmed by the tangible excitement for the London premiere of Fifty Shades Darker, the sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey. E. L. James’ Fifty Shades trilogy were an outsized hit for the author, who has also completed another book in the series, Grey, which retold the story from the viewpoint of Christian Grey. The series is an unstoppable one, and the second film in the trilogy is due in cinemas tomorrow.

James Foley takes over from Sam Taylor-Johnson in the director’s chair for this sequel and the next – Fifty Shades Freed, which is due for release this time next year. Though reaction to the films may follow the books’ critical appraisal there is a huge fanbase eager to enjoy this new rendition of the relationship. We’ll have our review of the film up as soon as possible.

The film stars Jamie Dornan, »

Movie Review – Fifty Shades Darker (2017)

9 February 2017 8:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fifty Shades Darker, 2017.

Directed by James Foley

Starring Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Bella Heathcote, Eric Johnson, Eloise Mumford, Rita Ora, Luke Grimes, Victor Rasuk, Max Martini, Bruce Altman, Marcia Gay Harden, and Kim Basinger.

Synopsis:

While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront the anger and envy of the women who came before her.

There is absolutely potential to tell a compelling narrative following a person battling squashing inner sadistic sexual desires in an effort to successfully maintain a normal, healthy relationship. Fifty Shades Darker (and the entire franchise for that matter based on novels written by E.L James) is not that movie. The jigsaw puzzle that is Christian Grey’s (Jamie Dornan) traumatic past and abnormal personality are shoved to the side far too often when that theme should be front and center. I’m all for equal opportunity nudity and certainly won’t complain about »

‘Fifty Shades Darker’ Review: Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan Loosen Up For Sexier, Sillier Sequel

9 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Don’t let that title fool you: The second entry in the “Fifty Shades of Grey” cinematic trilogy is by no means a darker outing than its predecessor, and the franchise (already set to wrap up with a third feature in 2018) is all the better for it. Whipping up a proper tone for the big screen versions of E.L. James’ wildly popular novels was always going to be the films’ biggest problem, and while director James Foley might not quite nail it, wily injections of humor prove to be an unexpectedly helpful addition to the kinky franchise.

Picking up mere days after the events of Sam Taylor-Johnson’s 2015 “Fifty Shades of Grey,” Foley’s film quickly shifts gears away from the doom and gloom of the first film to give audiences something sexier, sillier and a fair bit soapier. After gliding through a series of literally tattered childhood memories that »

Will Fifty Shades Destroy John Wick and Batman at the Box Office?

7 February 2017 9:41 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While February hasn't traditionally been a hotbed for box office blockbusters, that started to change three years ago. Warner Bros.' The Lego Movie became an instant hit in February 2014, opening with $69 million en route to $469.1 million worldwide. In 2015, Fifty Shades of Grey ($85.1 million opening weekend, $571 million worldwide) and Kingsman: The Secret Service ($36.2 million opening weekend, $414.3 million worldwide) went toe-to-toe, and last year, the R-rated Deadpool ($132.4 million debut, $783.1 million worldwide) set box office records. This year, three highly-anticipated movies square off, with The Lego Movie spin-off The Lego Batman movie facing a pair of R-rated sequels, Universal's sexually-charged erotic drama Fifty Shades Darker and Lionsgate's action-packed John Wick: Chapter 2. While all three should have no trouble drumming up business this weekend, we're predicting that The Lego Batman Movie will come away with the easy win, debuting with $58.7 million.

While that tally is a bit less than The Lego Movie »

Official Character Posters For Fifty Shades Darker Promise Passion, Mystery And Danger

3 February 2017 8:14 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Passion, mystery, envy, deception, danger – five fiery ingredients that will be tossed into the mix for Fifty Shades Darker, if the sequel’s character posters are any indication.

Embedded below, you’ll find the likes of Dakota Johnson (Ana Steele) and Jamie Dornan (Christian Grey) joined by some of the film’s new recruits. Behind the scenes, it’s a similar story. After steering Fifty Shades of Grey into a worldwide phenomenon two years ago, Sam Taylor-Johnson bowed out of directing duties – a fallout with series author E.L. James and a generally horrid experience at the helm are reportedly to blame for that one – opening the door to franchise newcomer James Foley. Perhaps in an effort to steady the ship, Universal has gone one step further to ensure Foley will return to direct Fifty Shades Freed, which will close the book on Christian and Ana’s wildly over-the-top saga in 2018.

Gallery: Jamie Dornan & Dakota Johnson sparkle at Fifty Shades Darker La Premiere

3 February 2017 3:17 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: David Sztypuljak

Last night, Los Angles played host to the Premiere of Universal Pictures Fifty Shades Darker. The movie is the second installment in the book series by British Author E.L. James and sees Jamie Dornan play billionaire Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele.

The book series spans three books with Fifty Shades Freed already filmed and ready to roll for release in 2018. The original film Fifty Shades of Grey became one of the biggest releases of 2015 bringing in a worldwide haul of over half a billion dollars with just $40m Usd spent on the production.

It was no wonder that the sequels were fast-tracked for release making household names of both Dornan (who has more recently starred in the critically acclaimed Anthorpoid and who is rumoured to be playing the Green Lantern in future comic book movies) and Johnson who worked with Luca Guadagnino in A Bigger Splash. »

If you're looking for an erotic, steamy movie to ignite some romance this Valentine's Day, Fifty Shades Darker might just do the trick. The second installment in the Fifty Shades trilogy arrives on February 10. And if we had to guess by this first clip released, there won't be a dry seat in the house come two weekends from now.

It's pure sexual tension and almost too steamy for general audiences. Not much is shown, but quite a lot is implied. Aptly enough, this first clip is titled 'Date Night'.

Earlier this month, Universal Pictures released a new extended trailer for their highly-anticipated sequel Fifty Shades Darker, which included parts of the movie's theme song "I Don't Wanna Live Forever," performed by Taylor Swift and former One Direction singer Zayn. The full song debuted as a single on New Year's Eve, and today the full music video debuted, which doesn't feature any footage from Fifty Shades Darker, but is clearly inspired by several stylistic elements from this sexually-charged franchise. This track will be featured on the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack, which will be available from Republic Records on the same day as the film hits theaters, on February 10.

The song debuted on Billboard's Hot 100 singles chart in the sixth spot after its New Year's Eve debut, and it's currently in the eighth spot on the chart. Zayn posted this music video on his YouTube channel, which already has nearly 3 million »
