After what feels like years of waiting, we finally have our first two minute-glimpse at the sequel to 2014's steamy adaption of E.L. James's Fifty Shades of Grey. Starring the impossibly gorgeous Jamie Dornan as the successful and brooding Mr. Grey, Fifty Shades Darker takes place five days after Anastasia Steele — played by the meant-to-be-bland-but-is-actually-really-attractive Dakota Johnson — decided she couldn't be with Christian anymore, following an incident with a belt.
Stuffed full of steamy moments, intriguing plot teasers, and a brand new remix of Beyonce's 'Crazy In Love,' the new Fifty Shades Darker trailer has certainly got tongues wagging.
Fifty Shades Darker - What Can We Expect From the Sequel?
From what we can see in the trailer, the movie adaption of Darker will closely follow the plot of the novel. Without giving too much a away, fans of the book series will clock several moments which hint to key plot twists in the book; the ball, the helicopter, sailing trips, a certain stalker —to name a few.
Now that we've all managed to cool off from our steamy first-look, let's delve deeper into the trailer's most tantilizing moments, and what they could mean for Ana and Christian's future.
1. A Reunion...
After the events of Grey, we would hope Ana took some time to work on herself — maybe dated a lil' bit, or started a hobby. The allure of Mr. Christian Grey is far too hard to resist, as the pair reunite at a gallery opening.
2. The Masquerade Ball
Fans of Fifty Shades will be thrilled at their first peek of the masquerade ball — a pivotal moment in the book. It is where we will meet a certain Mrs. Robinson, and perhaps learn more about Mr. Grey's BDSM past. As well as being super sexy, masquerade balls can also hide a multitude of sins...
Who is the creepy man in the mask? Perhaps it is a certain love rival who can't take no for an answer...

3. Some Saucy Fun In the Shower
What's Fifty Shades without a romp in the shower, on a desk, in the bed, and so on? Grey featured more than a few sexy NSFW scenes, so I don't imagine Darker will be any different.
While these steamy moments gives us a glimpse of what's in store during Ana and Christian's more intimate moments, I imagine there will be many more surprises when the movie is released.
4. Working Out Has Never Looked So Good
Producer Dana Brunetti and director James Foley know what will lure millions of women (and millions of begrudging boyfriends) into movie theaters this coming Valentine's Day — and that's Jamie Dornan's flawless physique.
5. Plenty of New Characters
A whole host of new characters will joining the cast come Valentine's Day, each with their own part to play in the couple's relationship. The iconic and real-life Mrs. Robinson Kim Basinger has taken on the role of Christian's former dominant, Elena Lincoln — the woman who introduced Christian to the BDSM lifestyle. We will also meet Jack Hyde — played by Eric Johnson — Ana's new, predatory boss. Darker will also introduce Leila Williams (played by Aussie actress Bella Heathcote), Christian's former submissive who has it out for the budding young couple.
Is your inner Goddess screaming yet? We still have a whole five months before Fifty Shades Darker waltzes into theaters, but it's so good to see the Hollywood's most seductive franchise return for round two. We also know that the final book in the trilogy — Fifty Shades Freed — is now in post-production. The steamy sequel is released February 10, 2017.
