E.L James’s Fifty Shades of Grey franchise is back with the second instalment of the popular erotic-drama franchise and the trailer of Fifty Shades Darker has been released. And in no way is it different from the first movie. Dropped on Tuesday, the new trailer is definitely trying to portray the movie in a different manner giving it the outlook of a thriller but it will still remain a two-bit erotic sadomasochistic skin-show it really is.
The British-American erotic romantic drama film which released in 2015, was somehow quite surprisingly a box-office success breaking numerous box office records and earning over $571 million worldwide putting everyone’s choice of watching movies under tremendous scrutiny. The film promoted BDSM like never before and had one of the most shocking scenes and activities which was no short of a mainstream soft-porn video. The characters of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey were blunt, ever-horny and the acting was horrible from both Jamie Dornan and Dakota Fanning.
I mean, which girl gets willingly spanked by a business tycoon every time he’s up for it? The handcuffs, leashes and the rest of the atrocities in the ‘Red Room of Pain’ were astoundingly graphic and sadistic and there is a huge question on how the movie gained so much popularity when the best thing about the entire movie was Ellie Goulding’s Love me like you do.
The new trailer of ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ is no different from the previous ones. Yes, it shows a comparatively lesser number of intimate moments as compared to the trailer of the earlier movie but don’t let that fool you. The movie is still about sexual desperation, perverted business tycoons and expressionless 20-year-old girls who have no better job than to be the sex-slave of a sexual maniac. The new movie, according to the second book of E.L James’s freakshow is supposed to give a thriller-like feel to the sex lives of these two insanely frustrated humans. And what’s more, the stalking girl who happens to jump into the trailer quite a few times haunting Anastasia is none other than one of Christians former sex-slaves who came back to figure what made him choose Anastasia over her.
More stamina maybe. Who the hell cares? The trailer will take you to bathroom sex scenes or bedroom scenes where they go at it like dogs about to pounce on each other. We call it a movie, but it really isn’t. Its a mistake which should never have made it to mainstream celluloid.
What is more shocking is the fact that former Bond Girl Kim Basinger will also reportedly star in the film according to the latest poster release of the film. The actress of ‘Never say Never Again” fame opposite Sean Connery will reportedly play the role of Mrs. Robinson, who, according to the second book was the very person who got Christian Grey into this sadistic practice at the age of 15. We do not know what went wrong with Basinger or if anyone messed with her head before actually convincing her of signing up for this role,. All we know for sure that she might be the only one worth watching if her role is as significant as in the books. As from the trailer, there is no sight of her.
Fifty Shades Darker is scheduled to release on the 10th of February 2017. We strongly encourage you not to go for the movie as not only will it be a sheer waste of time and money, it will also scar you for life as just like the book, the movie has no base plot, no romantic expressions, and no good acting displays as well.
In the trailer Grey asks Steele, “Intrigued?”
To answer him, we so are not.
Still, if you dare.
