The movie was under scanner of the press and critics for its steamy lovemaking scenes.

Dakota has proved her mettle before Anastasia as the Boston gangster moll in ‘Black Mass,’ and as Penelope Lanier in Luca Guadagnino’s ‘A Bigger Splash.’ But, the ‘ the Shades of Grey trilogy‘ opened her doors to more ambitious and dark roles exploring diverse emotions and plots. The franchise grosses around 140 million Dollars at the box office worldwide. She teamed up Luca Guadagnino again in 2018 to deliver a stylish horror film ‘Susperia.’ At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Dakota Johnson movie and tv show?
