Dakota Johnson Frolics in a Bikini in New Movie Trailer (VIDEO)

Forget Anastasia Steele for a moment. Dakota Johnson's new role in A Bigger Splash looks even steamier, if that's possible. The trailer for the film was recently released and May 13 can't come soon enough.


A Bigger Splash is a remake of a 1969 French-Italian film called La Piscine. It sounds like we may have to suspend disbelief big-time in order to buy what happens in the story line, but here goes: Ralph Fiennes plays a record producer who travels with his daughter, played by Dakota, to interrupt a rock star's vacation. Tilda Swinton plays the rock legend, who is enjoying some sexy time on the beach with her hot, younger boyfriend, played by Matthias Schoenaerts.

Judging by the trailer alone, it looks like Dakota and Matthias's characters might end up digging each other, or maybe Ralph and Tilda will find a connection — or, hell, perhaps both scenarios will play out. Expect a lot of Dakota in a bikini and a lot of skin:

Well, I don't know about you, but I'm totally intrigued and ready to find out more. Am I curious as to why in the hell a record producer is traveling with his daughter? Sure. But I'm just going to create a make-believe situation in my head — maybe Dakota's character is training to take over for her dad — and there, just like that it no longer matters.

This is one of Dakota's first major roles after Fifty Shades of Grey and I'm not really surprised that she has been cast in the part of young and sexy, yet again. I feel like she's in the same position Kristen Stewart was in on the heels of her Twilight success. She has a few films in which to prove she is capable of playing diverse characters so that she isn't typecast. I'm not sure if A Bigger Splash will afford her that opportunity, but I do think she was extremely smart to surround herself with a talented cast and a talented director (Luca Guadagnino).

At the end of the day, I believe Dakota will be able to prove her worth as a talented actress to be reckoned with — it doesn't hurt that she can act and looks insanely hot in a bikini.
