With the instant worldwide success of the first instalment of the Fifty Shades franchise, this saw Fifty Shades of Grey take a massive $560 million globally back in 2015. With a returning Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey and his adoring fan base, we are certain that Fifty Shades Darker will hit the same amount of deviant success especially if the trailer and his nakedness has anything to do with it.

Only two years later, Dornan and Johnson return alongside Academy Award winner Marcia Gay Harden, 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. Fifty Shades Darker is directed by James Foley (Fear, House of Cards) and once again produced by Michael De Luca, Dana Brunetti and Marcus Viscidi, alongside E L James, the creator of the culture-spanning blockbuster series.
