Are you one of the many on baited breath, looking forward to the release of FIFTY SHADES DARKER? Do you lay awake at night thinking, “Will this satisfy my hunger?” Do you find yourself with your mind wandering about how the filmmakers could ever possibly top the first movie? Since you clicked on this, I’m guessing that the answer is “Yes.” Well, Universal is helping you along with the extended trailer for director James Foley’s sequel to FIFTY SHADES OF GREY.

Set to the new, sexy slow jam by Taylor Swift and Zayn, the trailer teases more sex and more over the top fantasy.

“Reel” talk, you guys; That dinner scene in the second trailer from three weeks ago – this one right here…

….is straight up lifted from SLIVER.

It’s curious that they omitted this in this extended trailer. Guess they have their bases covered with that elevator scene.

For me, personally, nothing has ever grabbed my attention with this series quite like this new yil’ snapchat tile.

WHY DOES A GHOST NEED TO WEAR A MASK?!! I don’t know – but screw it! I love it!

FIFTY SHADES DARKER opens on February 10.
