Dwayne Johnson, the one-person marketing machine for "Baywatch," has unveiled a new cast photo from the upcoming film that gives a nod to the slow-motion shots that were a staple of the television series.
"We are the reason you feel safe in the water... We are the reason you feel safe on the sand," the star writes on Facebook. "We are also literally running iconically in slo-motion because apparently that makes everyone's kibbles and bits look sexy. WE ARE Baywatch Movie."
From left that's Kelly Rohrbach, Alexandra Daddario, Ilfenesh Hadera, Johnson, Zac Efron and Jon Bass. They're joined in the Paramount Pictures film by Priyanka Chopra, Hannibal Buress, Belinda Peregrín, Izabel Goulart, Charlotte McKinney, David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson.
Directed by Seth Gordon, “Baywatch” centers on the by-the-book leader of an elite team of lifeguards (Johnson) who’s forced to team with a rule-breaking hotshot (Efron) to save the bay from an oil tycoon (Chopra). The film opens May 19, 2017.
