FIFTY SHADES DARKER
Fri 10 Feb
The book that attracted 100 million readers in 52 languages crawls back for more. The onscreen sequel features Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) enticing a dithering Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) back into his life while wrestling with inner demons. What’s a girl to do? While the two reignite their flame, shadowy figures from Christian’s past are lurking. “Every fairytale has a dark side,” the tagline warns. In this case that includes a vandalised vehicle, a helicopter crash, and a gun-toting woman wondering what makes Ana so special. Oh please. If that isn’t enough to make your eyes roll into the back of your head, the purring soundtrack featuring Zayn Malik and Ariana Grande will. Make sure you’ve got a safe word.
