This Week's New DVDs: June 26th 2017

Fifty Shades Darker, Patriots Day and Jamestown are among this week's new releases on DVD. 

Fifty Shades Darker

Fifty Shades Darker

Universal Pictures UK

The sequel to Fifty Shades Of Grey hits DVD shelves this week, with Jamie Dornan’s Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson’s Anastasia Steele returning for another raunchy drama. This time they are joined by LA Confidential's Kim Basinger, The Knick's Eric Johnson, Dark Shadows star Bella Heathcote and The Vampire Diaries' Arielle Kebbel.

In this new movie, we begin with a wounded Christian Grey, still reeling after the breakdown of his relationship with Anastasia. Eventually, he moves to win her back, but she, in turn, demands a new arrangement before she will give him another chance. As the two begin to build trust and find stability, shadowy figures from Christian’s past start to circle the couple, determined to destroy their hopes for a future together.

James Foley, best known for his work on House Of Cards and Glengarry Glen Ross, directs Fifty Shades Darker, replacing Sam Taylor-Johnson, who clashed with author E.L. James during the making of Fifty Shades Of Grey.
