Universal Pictures has set a home box-office release date for “Fifty Shades Freed,” the third installment to the popular ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ adaptations based on EL James’ best-selling book trilogy. “Fifty Shades Freed” will first release on Digital, and the all-new digital movie app MOVIES ANYWHERE, on April 24, 2018. The digital release will be followed by the 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand versions, which are set to release on May 8, 2018.
You can pre-order the digital version of the film on iTunes, Amazon Video, and Google Play. If you prefer the retail 4K, Bluray, or DVD versions of the film, you can pre-order those from retail sites like Amazon.com.
The film first hit theaters back in February, opening at number-one with a $38.5M weekend. At the time “Fifty Shades Freed” barely topped Sony’s “Peter Rabbit,” which opened on the same weekend with $25M. “Fifty Shades Freed” grossed over $95M domestically and over $345M worldwide for Universal Pictures, but even those impressive numbers were far from a franchise high. The original film in the trilogy, “Fifty Shades of Grey,” opened with an $85M weekend back in 2015, and went on to make $571M worldwide.
“Fifty Shades Freed” was directed by James Foley, the film featured Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Kim Basinger, Arielle Kebbel, and Luke Grimes.
Believing they have left behind shadowy figures from their past, newlyweds Christian (Jamie Dornan, “The Fall,” Anthropoid) and Ana (Dakota Johnson, How to Be Single, Black Mass) fully embrace an inextricable connection and shared life of luxury. But just as she steps into her role as Mrs. Grey and he relaxes into an unfamiliar stability, new threats could jeopardize their happy ending before it even begins. Directed by James Foley (“House of Cards,” At Close Range), Fifty Shades Freed also features returning cast members Eric Johnson (“The Knick,” “Smallville”), Rita Ora (Fifty Shades Franchise) as well as Oscar winner Marcia Gay Harden (Fifty Shades of Grey, Miller’s Crossing).
