Jamie Dornan explained why Vin Diesel was showing up in Christian Grey’s bedroom.
You did see Fifty Shades Darker ? Otherwise, he returns this evening on TFX. And you will no doubt be surprised to see a nod to Chronicles of Riddick in the middle of the S&M romance between Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and Christian Gray (Jamie Dornan) !
During a sequence where the couple is in the millionaire’s teenage bedroom, we can see in the background a poster of the second film in the science fiction saga released in 2004. A wink that does not is never justified in the film, even though it disconcerted quite a few spectators.

Is Christian Gray just a fan of Vin Diesel ? Is this linked to the fact that it is a sequel (of Pitch Black2000), as Fifty Shades Darker is the continuation of Fifty Shades of grey ? Is this a feature film that had a profound impact on this character? Jamie Dornan answered the question with Fox 5 DC at the time of its release in cinemas, in 2017, and the explanation is very simple: the two films are produced by the same studio, Universal, which made it possible to include the poster without paying royalties while advertising the a popular film from the studio. Furthermore, this detail matched the age of the hero (27 years old, even if his interpreter is 34, which means that The Chronicles of Riddick was released in cinemas when Christian was a teenager).
“We quickly talked about what we should put in Christian’s room with the artistic team. They offered me ideas, and I also mentioned details that I found fun. And then, like “Universal is producing the two films, it was practical. It also fits the age of the character, so it’s perfect.”
Jamie Dornan: “SM doesn’t thrill me”
Mystery solved: you should not look for a hidden message in this “detail that kills”. No, The Chronicles of Riddick did not influence Christian Grey’s sex life…
