New Baywatch Movie Trailer Unleashes Beach Mayhem
"Cos I'm Baywatch!"
Baywatch was one of the most popular TV shows of the 1990s and is set to return to screens this summer as a movie reboot starring Dwayne Johnson. A new trailer has been released--check it out below:
Baywatch is directed by Horrible Bosses' Seth Gordon and also stars Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, Priyanka Chopra, and Ilfenesh Hadera, with a cameo expected from the show's original star and producer David Hasselhoff. In February, Johnson posted a picture of him and Hasselhoff on set together.
In a recent interview with EW, Gordon spoke about the way the new movie would reference the original show."The history of the show is to showcase beauty," he said. "There's a beat where one of the characters sees someone running and asks, 'Is she running in slo-mo? And why is she wet but not that wet?' Stuff like that shows that we are in on the joke."
The original Baywatch ran from 1989 to 1999, with a subsequent show, Baywatch Hawaii, airing until 2001. It was a huge international hit, and had clocked up a total of 242 episodes by the time it was cancelled.
Baywatch hits theaters on May 19, 2017. A first trailer was released in December--watch it here.
