Universal has released a new Fifty Shades Freed trailer. In the final installment of the trilogy, Anastasia (Dakota Johnson) and Christian (Jamie Dornan) tie the knot, but demons from both their paths threaten to rip apart their happiness of being super rich and having kinky sex. How will these beautiful, rich people continue being beautiful and rich?
Watching the trailer for Fifty Shades Freed, I was reminded of how disappointing and uninteresting this series has been. Aside from Johnson’s impressive performance, these are erotic movies that are rarely sexy, romantic movies where there’s no chemistry between the leads, and the solution has just been to lean into Christian’s enormous wealth. That makes them wholly uninteresting to the point where the most memorable part of the last movie, Fifty Shades Darker, was that Christian’s childhood bedroom had a Chronicles of Riddick poster. I hope he decorates their new home with posters for other unpopular Vin Diesel movies like A Man Apart and Babylon A.D.
Check out the new Fifty Shades Freed trailer below. The film opens on February 9th, and also stars Marcia Gay Harden, Eric Johnson, Rita Ora, Luke Grimes, Victor Rasuk, Jennifer Ehle, Eloise Mumford, Max Martini, Callum Keith Rennie, Bruce Altman, and Robinne Lee.
Here’s the official synopsis for Fifty Shades Freed:
Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson return as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades Freed, the climactic chapter based on the worldwide bestselling “Fifty Shades” phenomenon. Bringing to a shocking conclusion events set in motion in 2015 and 2017’s blockbuster films that grossed almost $950 million globally, the film arrives for Valentine’s Day 2018.
Believing they have left behind shadowy figures from their past, newlyweds Christian and Ana fully embrace an inextricable connection and shared life of luxury. But just as she steps into her role as Mrs. Grey and he relaxes into an unfamiliar stability, new threats could jeopardize their happy ending before it even begins.
