Universal has released the second trailer for the upcoming Fifty Shades Fifty Shades Darker. The film is based on the second book of the series by E L James and continues the story between Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey.
The first film was a gigantic hit worldwide and raked up north of $571 million in worldwide Box-office receipts. Compared to the first trailer released way back in September the trailer gives us a fair sense of things to come storywise in the film. It also doubles down on the risque factor by showing more of one of the main selling factor of the film – “SEX!”.
