It's been over a month since the Fifty Shades of Grey sequel brought back bondage and banter to the big screen with Fifty Shades Darker, but Mr Grey will see you...again in June for the unrated version.
Yep, the countdown is on for when Universal Pictures Home Entertainment unleashes Fifty Shades Darker Unmasked Edition on May 9, 2017. The new edition will feature more than 13 minutes of unseen footage, plunging fans even deeper into the world of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.
In addition to both the original theatrical version and a steamy new version, the 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD release of Fifty Shades Darker Unmasked Edition comes with more than 30 minutes of never-before-seen bonus content, including cast interviews, behind-the-scenes features, and a peek at what lies ahead in the upcoming Fifty Shades Freed.
