Dakota Johnson is “Fifty Shades” of single in her new romantic comedy.
The first trailer for “How to Be Single” was released Wednesday, starring the “Fifty Shades of Grey” actress as Alice, a woman who is decidedly not seeking Mr. Right (or Mr. Grey).
Instead, the newly single character is trying to navigate the New York dating scene under the guidance of her pal Robin, played by Rebel Wilson.
Under Robin’s direction, Alice learns how to meet guys, score free drinks, send flirty texts and survive hangovers.
“The thing about being single is you have to cherish it,” Alice marvels in the trailer.
The rom-com marks Johnson’s first leading role since her breakthrough performance in “Fifty Shades of Grey.” She will reteam with Jamie Dornan for the sequel “50 Shades Darker,” due out in 2017.
“How to Be Single,” co-starring Leslie Mann and Alison Brie, opens Feb. 12, 2016.
