FIFTY SHADES DARKER

Production Information
JAMIE DORNAN and DAKOTA JOHNSON return as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades Darker, the second chapter based on the worldwide bestselling "Fifty Shades" phenomenon. Expanding upon events set in motion in 2015's blockbuster film that grossed more than $560 million globally, the new installment arrives for Valentine's Day and invites you to slip into something a shade darker.

The next adaption from author E L JAMES' seismic and culture-spanning series to hit the big screen, Fifty Shades Darker exploded onto the scene in September 2016, when its online trailer debut resulted in world-record figures. Racking up 114 million views in 24 hours-and besting the reigning highest-performing full-length trailer, Star Wars: The Force Awakens-this tease to a more dangerous side of one couple's rich and mysterious world gave audiences a taste of what to expect when a fairy tale doesn't play by the rules.

Their story continues as a wounded Christian Grey tries to entice a cautious Anastasia Steele back into his life...and she demands a new arrangement before she will give him another chance. As the two begin to build trust and find stability, shadowy figures from Christian's past start to circle them, determined to destroy any hopes for a future together.

Also returning from Fifty Shades of Grey are Academy Award winner MARCIA GAY HARDEN (Into the Wild) as Dr. Grace Trevelyan Grey, Christian's mother; RITA ORA (Southpaw) as Mia Grey, Christian's little sister; LUKE GRIMES (The Magnificent Seven) as Elliot Grey, Christian and Mia's brother; VICTOR RASUK (Godzilla) as Jose Rodriguez, Ana's close confidant; ELOISE MUMFORD (Not Safe for Work) as Kate, Ana's best friend and Elliot's girlfriend; and MAX MARTINI (TV's Training Day) as Taylor, Christian's bodyguard.

They are joined for the first time by Oscar winner KIM BASINGER (L.A. Confidential) as Elena Lincoln, a mysterious woman from Christian's youth who won't let him go; BELLA HEATHCOTE (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) as Leila Williams, one of Christian's former submissives and a dire threat to his new life with Ana; and ERIC JOHNSON (TV's The Knick) as Jack Hyde, Ana's boss at the publishing house who proves himself as untrustworthy as he is controlling.

Fifty Shades Darker is directed by JAMES FOLEY (Fear, House of Cards) and once again produced by MICHAEL DE LUCA (Captain Phillips, The Social Network), DANA BRUNETTI (Captain Phillips, The Social Network) and MARCUS VISCIDI (We're the Millers, How to Be Single), alongside E L James, the creator of the blockbuster series. The screenplay is by NIALL LEONARD, based on the novel by E L James.

For the dramatic thriller, Foley is joined behind the camera by a crew of returning craftspersons and newcomers to the team. They are led by director of photography JOHN SCHWARTZMAN (Jurassic World, Seabiscuit), production designer NELSON COATES (Flight, The Proposal), editor RICHARD FRANCIS-BRUCE (The Shawshank Redemption, Oblivion), costume designer SHAY CUNLIFFE (The Bourne Ultimatum, A Dog's Purpose), music supervisor DANA SANO (Fifty Shades of Grey, Horrible Bosses) and composer DANNY ELFMAN (Fifty Shades of Grey, The Girl on the Train).
