Take that lunch break now, folks, because the latest Fifty Shades Darker trailer has been released, and you’re going to need some air after seeing the naughty antics this dark-and-twisted couple is up to these days.
The two-and-a-half minute clip gives fans an extended look at some of the new characters of the series, including Ana’s very creepy stalker, Leila, Ana’s boss, Jack Hyde, and Christian’s former lover, Elena, who is played by the incomparable Kim Basinger.
“Do you think you’re the first woman who’s tried to save him?” Elena questions Ana.
That’s all great and interesting, but let’s skip to what we’re all really here for: Ana (Dakota Johnson) and Christian (Jamie Dornan), who are back together and, as Ana claims, happier than ever, after accepting a seemingly innocent (ha!) dinner invitation.
“But we’re only talking, and that is it.” Sure, Ana. Cut to her underwear being slipped off under the dinner table and an elevator scene so hot you’ll be hitting that door close button extra hard, if you know what we mean.
There’s also several long and steamy stares, a few truly romantic shots of a masquerade ball, and plenty of Christian shirtless scenes to keep you warm until the movie is released on Valentine’s Day 2017.
Dornan even promises that this film will be more “enjoyable” than the first of the franchise, because the cast and production don’t feel as much pressure to please the audience as it did with the first.
“Everyone’s relaxed a bit so there wasn’t that pressure to set the tone for the movies, so I felt a little more freedom this time, and it probably made it more enjoyable,” the actor tells The Hollywood Reporter.
