As promised the sequel of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ is in production and will be out on February 2017 and the theatrical trailer is out two year after the first film became an outright sensation. This sequel won’t have the luxury of years-long controversy over the subject matter, free media attention over who the cast member is going to be, months-in-advance think pieces. If the prequel was like the Da-Vinci Code, then Fifty Shades Darker is probably going to play closer to Angels & Demons.
Fifty Shades of Grey, the first movie inspired by Twilight bondage romance franchise, opened with a smashing debut weekend back in February 2015. The film starring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, was a quick kill blockbuster earning $166.1m domestic but a whopping $571m worldwide on a $40m budget.
The good news is that starcast is back with Kim Basinger and Bello Heathcote, with director Sam Taylor-Johnson is not, having famously clashed with author E.L. James during the making of the 2014 blockbuster. In her place is James Foley and replacing Kelly Marcel as the screenwriter for this second installment is Niall Leonard. Worst Case scenario you’ll get a punny headlines for the movie if it fails to make the box office riches.
