Author E.L. James wrapped up the Fifty Shades novel trilogy with Fifty Shades Freed in 2012, and this past February, the film adaptation finally arrived in theaters. Like its predecessors, Fifty Shades Freed didn't receive the best critical reception (to put it lightly), but it perform excellently at the box office, making over $368 million worldwide. Now that the threequel has arrived on home media, that means that like many other high-profile movies from recent years, it finds itself the subject of an Honest Trailer, which spends a lot of time poking fun at the sexual escapades of Dakota Johnson's Anastasia and Jamie Dornan's Christian. Give it a watch, below.
This latest Honest Trailer doesn't waste any time taking aim at Fifty Shades Freed overall, but a good portion of the video revolves around Christian and Anastasia (or as the narrator calls them, "the villains of their own movie) unusual relationship, including how they spend their time in the bedroom. Well, actually, that's just one of the locations where the newlyweds like to have sex, with other places including their kink dungeon, inside a car, in the bathroom as Anastasia's giving Christian a haircut and on the kitchen table. Yeah, I have to agree that the table is an especially unsanitary place to get down, and I hope that the lovers wiped down the table after they were done for the sake of their future houseguests.
But it isn't all just sex and bondage games for Christian and Anastasia. The latest Honest Trailer also notes how despite their fun times underneath the sheets, Anastasia and Christian's relationship still has its everyday issues. Nevertheless, these two stick it out with one another, and the final minutes of Fifty Shades Freed shows them with their son two years later. I too fear for the day when that kid stumbles upon their kink dungeon. But lest you think that there might be any inkling of romantic interest between Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan in real life, the video includes a clip from Jimmy Kimmel Live! where he says that he sees Johnson as more of a sister. As a sidenote, let's also not forget that these Fifty ShadesFifty Shades movies never actually specify what it is that Christian's company does, so building a moon laser that's run on blood diamonds from Africa is as good a guess as any.
While the Fifty Shades movies dominated were quite the theatrical draw during Valentine's Day opening weekend in 2015, 2017 and 2018, Fifty Shades Freed concluded up this trilogy, so if you were interested in seeing more of the Greys, you'll have to just imagine their life as parents in your head. Still, maybe someday fans of these movies will be treated to Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan co-starring in a not-BDSM focused movie together.
Fifty Shades Freed is now available for purchase on Blu-ray, DVD and digitally.
