Fifty Shades Darker is a 2017 USA erotic romance by James Foley.
Starring Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan and Bella Heathcote.
While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront the anger and envy of the women who came before her.
The BBFC has just passed the cinema release as 18 uncut for strong sex. The BBFC adds in its Insight advice:
There is strong sex and nudity, along with the portrayal of erotic role play based on domination, submission and sado-masochistic practices. There are also strong verbal references to sexual activity.
As with the original film, the UK age rating is the most restrictive in the western world:
- Australia: MA 15+ for strong sex scenes
- Canada: 18A (British Columbia)
- Germany: 16
- Netherlands: 16
- New Zealand: R18
- Portugal: M/16
- USA: R for strong erotic sexual content, some graphic nudity, and language
However the distributors will be fretting that the film doesn’t seem to be getting banned around the rest of the world. All other countries reported so far are going for uncut 18 to 21 ratings.
