The steamy trailer for Fifty Shades Darker has finally dropped

The steamy new trailer for Fifty Shades Darker, starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, has finally been unleashed upon the world after a rather long wait.

The second film in the franchise follows on from 2015′s Fifty Shades Of Grey, based on EL James’ racy novels, and sees the relationship between Christian Grey (Jamie) and Anastasia Steele (Dakota) grow.

The end of the first film saw her leaving him, but it clearly didn’t last very long as they are seen back in each other’s – often undressed – company.

It looks to be as raunchy as the first movie, as tensions mount between the pair due to erotic businessman Christian’s distrust over Ana’s new boss.

And there’s a new face on the scene with Kim Basinger joining the cast, playing an older woman who is a former lover of Christian’s, with whom he still keeps in touch.

Fifty Shades Of Grey was a huge success, grossing $571 million at the box office, so the expectations are high for the next instalment.

The film hits UK cinemas in February 2017, so there’s still a while to go yet.
