Fifty Shades Darker, the sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey, isn’t due to be released until 2017, nor does it have a director, but that didn’t stop anyone from releasing a teaser to get people talking.
Fifty Shades of Grey was a success in the box office, but there was a bit of drama behind the scenes for sure. There were plenty of rumors about the film’s stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan having difficulty in the chemistry /getting along at all department and on top of that, the same issues were definitely brewing between Fifty Shades of Grey director Sam Taylor-Johnson and the series’ author E.L. James. Things got so bad, in fact, Taylor-Johnson walked away for the project after filming completed.
The studio has not found a new director for the rest of the Fifty Shades films yet, which is another reason why releasing the teaser seems a little…odd?
We’re not complaining. Any day we get to see Jamie Dornan in motion is a good day, but was the REALLY necessary?
Watch the teaser below and decide for yourself:
Along with Dornan, Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson is also returning for the next installment.
Fifty Shades Darker is scheduled to hit theaters Feb. 10, 2017.
