Beach bods and slo-mo reign supreme in the first trailer for ‘Baywatch’

Believe it or not, Baywatch is one of the most iconic television shows of our time. The Hoff, Pamela Anderson, the slo-mo in red swimsuits, and I can guarantee that you probably remembered the intro to the show as well. To further his “Rock Domination” on the world, Dwayne Johnson has just released the first trailer for his reboot of the classic television series. As you can imagine it has all the makings of a Baywatch film and by that I mean there’s a lot of slo-mo and a lot good-looking people in swimsuits. Without further ado, check it out!

It seems pretty apparent that The Rock and company are pulling a lot of inspiration from 21 Jump Street which successfully rebooted an old television franchise by making it into an action/comedy. With the comedy coming from The Rock and Zac Efron’s relationship, it’s safe to say that these two are going to be the Schmidt and Jenko of the film.

Baywatch stars Dwayne Johnson (Central Intelligence), Zac Efron (Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates), Alexandra Daddario (HBO’s “True Detective”), Kelly Rohrbach (Comedy Central’s “Broad City”), Jon Bass (Loving), Ilfenesh Hadera (Oldboy), and Priyanka Chopra (ABC’s “Quantico”).

Baywatch follows devoted lifeguard Mitch Buchannon (Johnson) as he butts heads with a brash new recruit (Efron). Together, they uncover a local criminal plot that threatens the future of the Bay.
