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.
