“Fifty Shades Darker” continues to build up hype while fans patiently wait for its release date. However, the rumor mill still feels inadequate as the official announcement about the film’s director remains elusive.
The first film was directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson, but following the success of “Fifty Shades of Grey,” she also exited the franchise amid disparity rumors with author E.L. James.
Although official announcements continue to be scarce, speculations and rumors about casting, filming, storyline and the like grow in number each day.
While die-hard “Fifty Shades Darker” adult fans are pleased with rumors claiming that the “Fifty Shades of Grey” sequel will feature lengthy and explicit sex scenes, fans belonging to the late teens and young adult demographic could be a bit disappointed after latest rumors revealed that the Jamie Dornan starrer is going to be an R-21 flick.
The movie adaptation of E.L. James’ second book in the trilogy is expected to deliver more steamy scenes than the first one since fans were not pleased with the number of love-making scenes included in “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
Movie Pilot reported that if “Fifty Shades Darker” wants to outdo its sequel, it should present realistic sex scenes that are not accompanied by Beyonce’s singing. Genuine human interaction amid the BDSM-themed lovemaking is said to be the key element that would make “Darker” more interesting.
Since fans are craving for more revealing and more genuine sex scenes for “Fifty Shades Darker,” Venture Capital Post noted that they should also be prepared for the aftermath — an R-21 rating. The first installment got a restrictive R Rating, so now that the sequel is going to have explicit scenes, fans could be expecting an R-18 or R-21 Rating for the erotic film that is set to hit theaters in February 2017.
Meanwhile, many fans were said to be disappointed by “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” actor Henry Cavill’s denial of his involvement in the sequel.
Cavill was previously rumored to have been cast to play villain Jack Hyde. However, Cavill dispelled rumors when he said, “It would be a lot of fun to continue this ruse… but I’m not doing it,” in one of his latest interviews.
In a separate interview with USA Today, he said, “I’m not in ‘Fifty Shades of Grey.’ I’m for real. I’m just messing with everyone.”
