WATCH: Zac Efron, Dwayne Johnson bare hot bods for ‘Baywatch’
The hot and fiery trailer for “Baywatch”—starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Zac Efron—has been released.
The full trailer of the film, which is the newest edition of the 1989 series “Baywatch,” provides a sneak peek at the daily humorous lives of lifeguards of the Los Angeles County and their mission to reinstate the “Baywatch brand.” Matt Brody (Zac Efron), a two-time Olympic swimmer, enters the team and becomes its reckless rookie lifeguard.
Brody’s character and party habits infuriate team leader Mitch Buchannon (Dwayne Johnson). Although both men argue in notable scenes, they cooperate with fellow lifeguards Summer (Alexandra Daddario) and C.J. (Kelly Rohrbach) as they topple an oil mogul’s (Priyanka Chopra) plan to conquer the beach.
As noticed by many, David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson, two of the original cast members, were not featured in the trailer, but are reported to make guest appearances in the film.
From 1989 to 2001, “Baywatch” became one of the most sought-after series in the US and overseas, Variety reported. With an estimated audience of 1 billion, the series spawned several spin-offs, such as “Baywatch Nights” and “Baywatch Hawaii.”
The film is set for release on May 26, 2017. Gianna Francesca Catolico
