Fifty Shades sequel avoids naughty NC-17 rating

The risque Fifty Shades Of Grey sequel has wriggled its way out of a restrictive NC-17 rating in the U.S.

The film, Fifty Shades Darker, will open in February (17) with an R rating for "strong erotic sexual content and some graphic nudity and language", according to a statement from censors at the Motion Picture Association of America.

The dreaded NC-17 rating restricts anyone 17 and under from attending a screening, while an R rating allows under-17 film fans admission with an accompanying parent or adult guardian.

The Fifty Shades sequel wrapped in July (16) and the trailer broke Internet records when it debuted in September (16), becoming the most viewed in 24 hours.
