Warning: Mild spoilers for Fifty Shades Darker ahead. Do you dare read on?
Yesterday, the first trailer for Fifty Shades Darker was released, bringing fans our first look at the Fifty Shades Of Grey sequel. Judging by the trailer, the upcoming movie looks both mysterious and dark, but more importantly, it's even sexier than the original.
The teaser weaved a twisted web of dangerous liaisons, new characters, and hot shower hookups that up the steaminess for the sequel. And while first film may have concluded with a less than happy ending, fans of the books know that Ana and Christian Grey will reunite, and when they do things get hot and heavy fast.
It may be hard to imagine how Fifty Shades Darker can top the jaw-droppingly risqué moments in Fifty Shades Of Grey, but if you've read the books then you know the new teaser barely scratches the surface of what's in store. Here are some ways that Fifty Shades Darker will be even sexier than Fifty Shades Of Grey.
1. Ana's Down For BDSM
While the Red Room is off limits once Christian and Ana commit to a vanilla relationship, Christian's "kinky f*ckery" is still as kinky as ever. Moreover, Ana actually enjoys the BDSM now. Fans of the book will recall that she begins to really appreciate the role it plays in their relationship, tightening her bond with Christian and empowering her along the way.
2. Enter Elena Lincoln
Kim Basinger is one seriously sexy Hollywood icon, even in her 60s. From 1989's Batman to LA Confidential Kim has consistently owned Hollywood with her classic looks and outrageous sex appeal. So, she's the perfect person to play Elena Lincoln, the woman who introduced Christian to the world of BDSM when he was a teenager. Her addition brings the story towards the realm of an erotic thriller, adding an element of danger to its sexual subject matter.
3. Ana Takes The Lead
This time around Ana's in charge, and that makes for some pretty steamy moments. As Christian lets his guard down, Ana moves in by turning herself into the dominant and Christian into the submissive. The role reversal should bring a unique new element to the movie, both in and out of the bedroom.

4. Christian Breaks His Own Rules
In Fifty Shades Of Grey, Christian was very stern when it came to the rules of being his submissive. But now that Ana is his girlfriend, Christian begins to let his guard down and break all the rules. In the teaser we see them sleeping together in the same bed — a cardinal no-no in the past. Lucky for us, he goes on to break even more rules that make his and Ana's encounters much steamier.
5. Christian And Ana Are In Love
Sure, the whole BDSM thing plays a big role in the Fifty Shades series, but Ana and Christian's relationship turns into something much more intimate in Fifty Shades Darker. The pair admit their love for each other, and Fifty Shades Darker will find them spending more personal time together beyond their previous enlightening encounters in the Red Room.
6. Romance To Balance The Sex
As Christian woos Ana back to him with endless roses and her favorite 19th century literature, the mood in the Fifty Shades series will adjust to accommodate its romantic side. This is a welcome change from the obvious emotional abuse Christian usually subjects his women to. The crazy sexy-times will still happen, but Christian will stop at nothing to give Ana the vanilla relationship she wants with a perfect happy ending.
7. The Pool Table Scene
The pool table encounter between Ana and Christian is one of the most revered of the book, and there's no way the film will be cutting it out. As one of the steamiest and most risqué moments out of all the books it will be interesting to see how far the film goes with it. Did I mention it also involves a ruler? Let's just leave it at that until we see it for ourselves. Is it hot in here?
Fifty Shades Of Drama
While Fifty Shades Darker definitely has more plot than Fifty Shades Of Grey, it also promises to be full of shockingly hot and heavy moments. If anything's clear from the teaser, the new movie will continue to earn its R-rating just fine and give fans the sexy soirée they've come to expect. Along with more sex, the film will feature more danger as several of Christian Grey's old flames coming into the picture to cause some serious drama. The addition of more drama to the film's signature sex scenes will certainly make this one a steamy affair you won't want to miss.
Fifty Shades Darker repeats its sequel's Valentine's Day opening, and will hit theaters on February 10, 2017. How can Fifty Shades Darker top the sex factor of Fifty Shades Of Grey? Let me know in the comments below!
