Are you ready for something darker? That’s the question asked by the first teaser for the Fifty Shades of Grey sequel, appropriately titled Fifty Shades Darker.

The second film, which is being written by E L James’ husband, has been pitched as “more like a thriller” than the first. Of course, that news shouldn’t come as much of a surprise for fans of the book, considering that one of the main storylines involves a not-so-mentally-stable individual. However, the teaser, which is part of the film’s Blu-ray release on May 8, is less about the thriller side of the story and much more about the romance.

Fans have already seen an image of Christian Grey in his Eyes Wide Shut masquerade mask, but the teaser gives just a bit more of Grey suiting up for a big night.


Fifty Shades Darker, which still lacks a director, is set to hit theaters Feb. 10, 2017.
