A teaser in preparation for the release of the Fifty Shades Darker trailer dropped, and it offered much intrigue for the anticipated sequel.
Photos from the wedding scene thrilled fans early on. It seemed a bonus for the many who are eagerly awaiting the second installment of E.L. James’ erotic trilogy. The patience of fans for the Fifty Shades Darker trailer will soon pay off. Moreover, they are better prepared for it with the release of a teaser and an official poster for the sequel. Thus, would it mean the actual preview is so intense they need advanced notice for it? Could be.
The poster showed the lead star Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson). This time around, Christian covered Anastasia’s eyes with a masquerade mask instead of a blindfold. Meanwhile, her intense stare into the camera holds a viewer’s attention. Hence, it added to the seduction teased by its tagline Slip into something a shade darker.
The teaser clip is equally captivating. The initial shot of fireworks in the sky could suggest fans can expect a more explosive sequel. Moreover, it featured the same tagline from the poster, i.e., the suggestion to wear a darker shade of color. Hitfix noted it might be a fashion reference. Would it tie in with the masquerade mask and the need to put on something more appropriate for the occasion?
The teaser’s audio featured a slowed down version of Beyonce’s Crazy in Love track. Yet, the repeated chant of its distinct lyrics could be cause for alarm. Then again, fans might feel reassured by the actions of Jamie Dornan who revealed a more confident Christian Grey. He looked to be in complete control standing behind Anastasia in front of the mirror. Would his comfort indicate he gave in to the demand for a full frontal scene?
The teaser might not answer the question. However, it likely left viewers intrigued by the possibility.
