The new film is the second to emerge from the erotic franchise, which has been adapted from E.L. James’ best-selling novels. The stars of 2015’s Fifty Shades of Grey, Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, will reprise their roles as Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey respectively.
The trailer for Fifty Shades Darker has been unveiled today on the film’s official Twitter account. Showing clips from the film that suggest that the sequel will be a dark affair that borrows tropes from horror movies, the trailer is soundtracked by Miguel’s cover of ‘Crazy In Love’, which has been specially recorded for the new film. This cover follows a slowed-down version of the 2003 single that Beyoncé herself sang for the 2015 film.
Watch the new trailer below.
