FIFTY SHADES DARKER
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
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

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.

again produced by MICHAEL DE LUCA (Captain Phillips, The Social Network), DANA
