“The climactic final chapter begins Valentine’s Day 2018,” reads the press release attached to this morning’s teaser trailer for Fifty Shades Freed. Oddly enough, despite not being a fan of this erotic series whatsoever, I’m a bit curious to see how the third chapter in the Fifty Shades phenomenon attempts to wrap things up, though it’s questionable as to whether or not this will truly be the final installment.
Universal seems to be keeping plot details for Fifty Shades Freed under wraps for the time being, but we don’t need an official synopsis to be able to tell what this movie is about. It’s all right there for us to unpack in the teaser trailer. Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) finally get married, begin their lives together, and then some unexpected force comes along and threatens the couple’s newfound relationship.
James Foley, who directed the previous installment in the franchise, is back again for Fifty Shades Freed, which was adapted for the screen by Niall Leonard, based on best-selling novel by E.L. James. Given the fact that both Fifty Shades of Grey and Fifty Shades Darker have grossed almost $950 million globally, there’s no telling where the studio plans on taking this series next, because this film is destined for box office success no matter what.
Fifty Shades Freed will open in theaters on February 9, 2018.
