Hey Fifty Shades fans, are you ready for it to get a little “darker” this weekend? Well take off those sexy silk blind folds (courtesy of Mr. Grey himself) because you’re going to need both eyes for what Anna and Christian have in store for you.
Fifty Shades Darker, the Fifty Shades of Grey sequel, hit theaters today, and fans can’t stop beaming with excitement, especially with Valentine’s Day right around the corner. However, there is some speculation that the timing of the movie release could hurt the movie in the box office instead of send it into a soaring success.
Fifty Shades of Grey grossed $85 million in its first weekend when it came out on Valentine’s Day in 2015. But with Fifty Shades Darker coming out four days before Cupid is supposed to arrive this year, the estimated income for opening weekend is thought to be around $35 to $40 million… yikes!
But, Fifty Shades nation is a dedicated fan group and we won’t go down without a fight. In the first day of the Fifty Shades Darker trailer release, it got 114 million views, and fans have been buzzing on social media in anticipation for the big cinematic debut.
Even Nicki Minaj herself has taken to Twitter having already seen the movie.
I just wanted y’all to wake up to see if u wanted to ask me anything about #FiftyShadesDarker ???

We know the movie had to be steamy if Nicki Minaj is putting that many tongue emojis in one Tweet. So what are we all waiting for? Leave the kinky handcuffs at home, at least for now, and run to the movie theater. We hope to see you on the “darker” side.
