Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are already being blamed for the failure of their latest big screen movie, ‘Fifty Shades Darker.’ The film hasn’t even hit movie theaters yet, but many insiders believe that it will perform much worse than the franchise’s first film, ’Fifty Shades of Grey.’
Reports indicate that ’Fifty Shades Darker’ is expected to only make about $35 million to $40 million dollars during its opening weekend. This is significantly less than the $85 million dollars that ’Fifty Shades of Grey’ made back in 2015. The movie ended up making well over $300 million dollars worldwide. But, that’s because ’Fifty Shade’ fans came out in droves to see the film. Both Jamie and Dakota managed to generate a lot of hype over the movie, despite their lukewarm reviews from critics.
Many fans were disappointed with ’Fifty Shades of Grey’s’ film adaptation. Some believed that the film did a poor job of pushing the envelope while others thought it was one of the worst films of the year.
Plus, Jamie has made it quite clear that he is over everything ’Fifty Shades.’ He doesn’t want to talk about his Christian Grey character anymore. In fact, he even went on the record to say that he’s nothing like the character that he plays on the big screen. Jamie is desperate to move on to bigger and better projects in Hollywood.
Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson still need to promote ’Fifty Shades Freed’ when it comes out in theaters next year. They are going to have to talk to the media about the film whether they like it or not. But, seeing how they’ve done very little to promote ’Fifty Shades Darker,’ there’s very little chance that Jamie and Dakota will be very enthusiastic about promoting ’Fifty Shades Freed.’ If ’Fifty Shades Darker’ flops this year, there’s a good chance ’Fifty Shades Freed’ will be the biggest failure for the franchise.
Tell us, are you planning to see ’Fifty Shades Darker’ when it comes out in theaters on February 10th? Are you excited to see Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson on the big screen again? Or do you think the film is going to be a major flop? Let us know your thoughts in our comments section below.
