Summer can’t get here quick enough. If you’re in desperate need for a trip to the beach, then maybe this new trailer for the upcoming “Baywatch” feature film will do the trick. This latest look at the film, starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron, features an even more extreme look at the life of a lifeguard. It turns out these guys — at least in the “Baywatch”-verse — do things that cops won’t even do.
The trailer reveals even more of the film’s plot and shines more of a light on Priyanka Chopra’s mysterious villain. The trailer also features more ridiculous hijinks and buddy camaraderie between Johnson and Efron.
Faced with decreased funding, the lifeguards look to a publicity stunt in the form of medal-winner Zac Efron to garner attention and support. But there’s just one problem: Zac Efron’s a bit of a disaster person. On top of that, a dead body shows up on the beach and all sorts of mayhem ensues (again, usually caused by Efron’s character).
The latest draft of the script was written by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift. “Baywatch” is being produced by Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions alongside his partner Dany Garcia.
Directed by Seth Gordon, “Baywatch” stars Johnson, Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, Ilfenesh Hadera, Jon Bass, Priyanka Chopra, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson. “Baywatch” opens on May 26.
