Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson return as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades Darker, the second chapter based on the worldwide bestselling “Fifty Shades” phenomenon. “Fifty Shades of Grey” star Jamie Dornan said fans of the erotic box office hit could look forward to more action when the sequel, “Fifty Shades Darker”, reaches theaters next week.
The Northern Irish actor and co-star Dakota Johnson reprise their sadomasochist relationship in the follow up to the 2015 hit, which made $571 million worldwide.
“We pull out all the stops,” Dornan said at the world premiere of “Fifty Shades Darker” in Los Angeles on Thursday.
“If you’re making a sequel to anything, I think there has to be some kind of advancement on the first, you have to go a bit bigger in a lot of areas, and I don’t think this film is any different.”
“Fifty Shades Darker”, based on the second book in the trilogy of novels by E.L. James, begins its global roll out from Feb. 8.

Fifty Shades Darker sex scenes are tamer in terms of their content, but they’re also extremely limited in terms of content. The same thing happens every time; Christian flashes Ana a “look”, during which his eyes darken (he might have a serious ocular condition), desire “pools in her belly”, some undressing occurs, then there’s nipple teasing, he blows, sucks, nips, licks, whatever, and she is usually pretty passive, save for her gyrating hips, which were once “caught up in his cool vanilla spell”.
Darker, which is directed by series newcomer James Foley (Fear, Glengarry Glen Ross), continues the unprecedented, boundary-breaking trajectory that James’ stories have enjoyed since 2009, when the first Shades installment was published as a piece of Twilight fan fiction.
