New year, new Anastasia Steele. Because of the newly broadened trailer for Fifty Shades Darker, 2017 is beginning off with a blast — a blast in the shower, a blast in the home rec center, a blast in the room, and an exacting blast from a weapon. This will be some movie.
The new trailer incorporates all the unusual stuff we’ve seen before — shower sex, Christian Gray doing pull-ups (shirtless), Ana gnawing her lip (sans pencil!), and the lift finger blast that better win somebody a damn Oscar — however, this time around it’s good to go to Zayn and Taylor Swift’s “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever.”
Honestly, it’s just funny that Ana agrees to have dinner with Christian because she’s “hungry,” because as we all know, poor Anastasia barely ever eats — though not for lack of trying.
Obviously, the trailer doesn’t shy away from the book’s darker material, similar to Ana’s dreadful manager who sexually bothers her (since he’s envious of Christian); Mr. Dark’s previous easygoing Leila Williams, who’s an aggregate psycho stalker out for Ana’s blood; and the spectacular helicopter crash. Uh-goodness. Did Christian Gray get performance anxiety, or did somebody disrupt his ride? It looks like we’ll have to wait and see.
