    The global film phenomenon sparked by E.L. James’ best-selling book trilogy returns with the second chapter of the darkly alluring tale that captivated the world. Fans can now stay in and have the ultimate at-home movie night with Fifty Shades Darker Unrated Edition, and this time, there are no rules and no secrets.

As the two begin to build trust and find stability, shadowy figures from Christian’s past start to circle the couple. Jack Hyde (Eric Johnson, “The Knick,” “Smallville”) and Elena Lincoln (Kim Basinger, L.A. Confidential, 9 ½ Weeks) intensify the story, determined to destroy the couple’s hopes for a future together.

    I will never forget this review I read in the NY POST the day of the film's release...



    The problem is all inside your head, she said to me
    S&M is easy if you take it logically
    I’d like to help you with your struggle to tame me
    There must be 50 ways to spank your lover.
    “Fifty Shades” — don’t tell my mother.

    She said our new movie is really pretty crude
    Furthermore it’s just a soap that has an awful lot of nude
    But I’ll repeat myself
    At the risk of being booed
    There must be 50 ways to spank your lover.
    “Fifty Shades” — don’t tell my mother.

    Remove my underpants, Lance
    Clamp me on the globes, Tobes
    Turn up the heat, Preet
    Just get yourself free.

    Smack me on the rear, Keir
    You don’t need to discuss smut
    Force me to submit, Mitt.
    And get yourself free.

    She said it pleases me to writhe around in pain
    It’s Seattle, so the other choice is just to watch it rain
    I said I appreciate that, but how is that germane
    To being Christian Grey’s?

    Cuff me to the pole, Joel
    Take me on the lift, Cliff
    Get me on my knees, Drew Brees
    Just get yourself free.

    Bind me by my wrists, Chris
    Tighten up that knot, Scott
    Smack me on the crack, Jack
    And get yourself free.

    She said why don’t we see
    Another film tonight
    ’Cause I believe that the Red Room
    Never really does ignite
    And then she kissed me
    And I realized she probably was right
    There must be 50 films I’d rather cover.
    “Fifty Shades” will make you dumber.

    Adapted from Paul Simon’s “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover”
