The official “Fifty Shades Freed” trailer and poster have been released online with the promise of plenty of steamy scenes, underlined by the single-entendre tagline “Don’t Miss the Climax.”
Universal Studios dropped the material Monday for the final installment in the “Fifty Shades” movie trilogy, based on E.L. James’ novel series and due in theaters on Feb. 9 — five days before Valentine’s Day. The footage starts with Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and Ana (Dakota Johnson) taking their relationship to a new level by formally becoming husband and wife.
The trailer shows Christian buying a massive new house without consulting his wife, consoling her by asserting “I bought it for us.”
That’s followed by a blonde female architect telling Christian her plans for the redesign, with Ana telling her not to ignore her, adding forcefully, “You can call me Mrs. Grey.”
Ana’s ex-boss, played by Eric Johnson, then appears to menace her, leading to a car chase through the woods. The trailer’s also intercut with several glimpses of BDSM sex scenes that are probably not safe for work.
James Foley directed “Fifty Shades Freed” from a script by Niall Leonard, author E.L. James’ husband. The first two films in the franchise, “Fifty Shades of Grey” and “Fifty Shades Darker,” grossed a combined $950 million worldwide.
