Dakota Johnson's 'How to Be Single' Trailer Is 'Fifty Shades' of Hilarious (VIDEO)

If you're single for Valentine's Day this year, don't fret -- you'll be in amazing company. The new trailer for How To Be Single was released, and Dakota Johnson proves to be the ultimate single girl on the prowl in New York City. Surrounded by an all-star cast that includes the hilarious Rebel Wilson, this video clip will get you super excited for the upcoming film (and may even make you long to be single).

Dakota steps way out of Anastasia Steele's shoes for a little while to play a character who is newly single, totally clueless about how to work what her mama gave her in NYC, and being given dating and sex advice from Rebel, a wild child party girl who pays for hangover cures by flashing her cleavage at a store clerk.

The film, which opens in theaters on Feb. 12, also stars Mad Men's Alison Brie and the very funny Leslie Mann -- and it looks completely awesome. Check out the trailer:

More from The Stir: Dakota Johnson's 'How To Be Single' Movie Sounds Wild & Wonderful

If you recall, last Valentine's Day, scores of women and men were filling up theaters to catch Fifty Shades of Grey. Interestingly, Dakota, Jamie Dornan, and the rest of the Fifty Shades Darker cast (whomever they might be) are set to begin shooting the sequel right after the new year so that the second film in the trilogy will meet its target release date of Feb. 10, 2017. I guess you can consider Dakota your Valentine's Day blockbuster movie star.

As far as How To Be Single goes, every generation needs its own Sex and the City and this is one hilarious, modern, and honest film I can certainly get behind. The fact that Dakota has us convinced that she'd have trouble finding a date in any city probably means she deserves an Oscar.
