Dakota Johnson's new comedy gets first trailerMax

Dakota Johnson's latest movie Am I OK? has finally dropped its first trailer after first premiering at Sundance two years ago.

Directed by real-life couple Tig Notaro and Stephanie Allynne, this "very awkward, honest" and "sometimes embarrassing" true story follows Johnson's character Lucy, who, after some catastrophic encounters with guys, comes to the realisation that she's a lesbian.

The comedy-drama is set to premiere on streaming service Max on June 6.

House of the Dragon's Sonoya Mizuno plays Lucy's best friend Jane, who tells her in the trailer: "You try 20 different flavours of ice cream before you settle on a single scoop..."

"Ice cream is different than vagina," Lucy replies dryly, as she struggles to leave her shell.

Also featured in the cast are Will & Grace favourite Sean Hayes, A Murder at the End of the World's Jermaine Fowler, The Flash's Kiersey Clemons and The Bear star Molly Gordon.

Back in March, Johnson weighed in on the critical pile-on experienced by her first superhero blockbuster Madame Web, which eventually became a Netflix hit.

"Unfortunately, I'm not surprised that this has gone down the way it has," said the actor when the brutal reviews first came out.

"It's so hard to get movies made, and in these big movies that get made — and it's even starting to happen with the little ones, which is what's really freaking me out — decisions are being made by committees, and art does not do well when it's made by committee," she said.

"My feeling has been for a long time that audiences are extremely smart, and executives have started to believe that they're not. Audiences will always be able to sniff out bullshit."

Am I OK? begins streaming on Max from Thursday, June 6.
