Subscribe to PopCrush on
The first trailer for the Zac Efron and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson-led Baywatch reboot movie hit the internet today (December 8), and it wastes no time getting to the slo-mo running in red bathing suits action that all Baywatch fans crave.
The teaser clip also features Mexican pop singer Belinda as a babe in peril who’s rescued by Johnson’s Mitch Buchanan (played by David Hasselhoff in the original series), Priyanka Chopra, Rob Huebel as Captain Thorpe (another character from the show), as well as Efron and Johnson’s San Andreas costar Alexandra Daddario as lifeguards.
Baywatch is directed by Seth Gordon, who helmed Horrible Bosses and the excellent arcade-centered documentary The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters, with a story co-created by Reno 911‘s Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant. It hits theaters on May 19, 2017.
