Well, it's official. The sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey -- Fifty Shades Darker -- has a release date. Woohoo! Universal just revealed the opening date for the second Fifty Shades installment, and just like the first, the film will hit theaters around Valentine's Day. At CinemaCon on Thursday, producers said that Fifty Shades Darker will open up on February 10, 2017. Amazing!


We recently found out that E.L. James' husband, Niall Leonard, a writer for British television, will be penning the upcoming sequel for Fifty Shades.

Clearly, the producers know what they're doing here by releasing Fifty Shades Darker around Valentine's Day again -- obviously, that worked the first time around. And telling fans the release date this far in advance is going to build the anticipation all that much more and get everyone crazy excited for the flick. Well-played, Universal. 

Now, come on. Give us a few more shots from the film. The more Jamie Dornan in our lives, the better.
