While I’m still not sure that the world needs more Baywatch, these first two teaser trailers are pretty decent. Time to return to the beach!
Going on a recent tweet by Dwayne Johnson, we can expect a “Bad Boy rated R version”, read red-band trailer, for what he typically calls the “Avengers of the Beach” soon.
Baywatch will be released in theaters two weeks after Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 and a week before Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. We’ll have to wait and see how it handles the tough competition.
Baywatch, directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses), also features Zac Efron as Matt, Alexandra Doddario as Summer (originally played by Nicole Eggert in the TV series), Quantico’s Priyanka Chopra as a villain, Billions actress Ilfenesh Hadera as Mitch’s love interest Stephanie, Kelly Rohrbach as C.J. Parker (Pamela Anderson’s old role), and Jack Kesy (The Strain) and Amin Joseph (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) in unknown roles. Plus, the film will give fans a blast from the past with appearances by Anderson and David Hasselhoff. The film has a May 19, 2017 release date.
