Watch Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson in the new Fifty Shades Darker trailer

The second steamy trailer for Fifty Shades Darker, starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, has been unveiled.

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.

When a wounded Christian attempts to entice Ana back, she demands a new arrangement before giving him another chance.

And the trailer appears to take a dark turn as shady figures from Christian’s life interrupt the pair’s new-found love.

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 not long to wait.
