Fifty Shades Darker: – World Premiere with cast interview

“Fifty Shades Darker” has a better story and may even be sexier than its predecessor. The plot is… well, darker, with elements of a thriller mixed in with the romance and the sex, and with a new director (James Foley) and a new screenwriter (Niall Leonard – adapting his wife’s novel), it’s more broadly entertaining. Like the first film, there’s plenty of sex in this one, but it’s less (a little less) “kinky” and more romantic than previously. The insights into Christian’s background, including meeting more women from his past, also gives the plot more depth as both Ana and Christian each have more at stake, emotionally-speaking. This movie won’t win any Oscars, but it’s pretty enjoyable.
