Fifty Shades Freed
Yes, folks, the third film in the Fifty Shades series arrives in theaters in time for Valentine’s Day.
Married life: Anastasia (Dakota Johnson) and Christian (Jamie Dornan) get hitched, return home after a long honeymoon and settle into married life in Seattle with new conflicts — and romance!
Book sales: Derided as “mommy porn,” the books by E.L. James have sold more than 70 million copies worldwide. The films, all released around V-Day, have been largely trashed by critics.
Box office: While not exactly mega-blockbusters, the previous films have cracked the $100 million mark. Fifty Shades of Grey earned more than $166 million at the domestic box office in 2015, while Fifty Shades Darker pulled in more than $114 million in 2017.

Season one of the con artist comedy-drama arrives on Netflix this week. Israeli actress Inbar Lavi stars as Maddie, a woman who marries unsuspecting souls, then runs off with their money. Shock and heartbreak usually lead to revenge-seeking. Variety called it a “sudsy, funny drama” when it debuted last year on Bravo. Lea Palmieri was even more enthusiastic on decider.com, dubbing the show “fun, twisty, slick, and worth watching — more than once!”
