Slow motion running, oiled up hard-bodies and occasionally saving someone from drowning. The newest trailer for Baywatch brings back all that and sprinkles in a lot more dick jokes, bouncing boobs and drugs. You can watch the trailer above.
The synopsis of Baywatch reads:
Lifeguard Mitch Buchannon (Dwayne Johnson) and a brash new recruit (Zac Efron) uncover a criminal plot that threatens the future of the bay.
Directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses, Identity Thief), Baywatch is a complete rebranding of the series as a straight up R-rated (MA15+ for us Aussies) action-comedy romp.
This won’t be the 90s Baywatch we’re used to; have a look at the poster that was released a few days ago.
Johnson and Efron have proved in the past they have comedy chops (Central Intelligence and Bad Neighbours). The crime/mystery elements can only add to the fun as the bumbling duo get in way over their heads trying to uncover a drug operation and murder
Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, Ilfenesh Hadera and Jon Bass round out the cast as the members of Baywatch. You can also expect small appearances from the Hoff himself as well as Pamela Anderson.
Baywatch looks like a fun, ridiculous time at the movies and the trailer did have me laughing more than once. And it can’t be worse than the ill-fated Baywatch Nights TV series; it had vampires, sea monsters and Vikings. I’m not even kidding, look it up.
