As we all know from Anastasia Steele’s twisted love affair with Christian Grey, the BDSM-loving fictional character by E.L. James, he has had a dark past and in the newly released Fifty Shades Darker trailer, we find out just how dark.
During the season 21 premiere of The Bachelor on Monday, Jan. 2 a new extended trailer for the second installment of the Fifty Shades saga was shown, giving fans a deeper look into Christian Grey’s past, particularly, his former submissives.
In the new trailer, Ana (Dakota Johnson) and Christian (Jamie Dornan) get sneaky in an elevator – getting way too close for two people who are just going to a particular floor of a building. There was also a shower scene, where the pair got hot and heavy.
But above all, we see our first peak at Leila Williams (Bella Heathcote), Christian’s crazy, stalker ex-girlfriend, lurking around Ana. The video also shows Leila confronting Christian with a gun and doing all sorts of weird stuff only a psycho ex would do, like vandalizing a car. On top of that, we see a helicopter crashing.
“Every fairy tale has a dark side,” the trailer warned.
Despite convincingly playing the wide-eyed, love-struck Ana Steele in the Fifty Shades saga, Dakota Johnson said that when it comes to sex scenes, she’s “over it.”
“Well, we’re not having actual sex,” she said of shooting the steamy BDSM scenes. “But I’ve been simulating sex for seven hours straight right now, and I’m over it.”
On Dec. 8, Taylor Swift and Zayn Malik dropped a new song entitled, “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” as part of the movie’s soundtrack. The song almost instantly skyrocketed to Number 1 on iTunes after it was released.
The song success of the collaborative song was such a surprise, even to Taylor Swift, who posted about it on Instagram saying, “Well that escalated quickly.”
Fifty Shades Darker will hit theaters on Feb. 14.
