There’s more to the job than just swimming in this new red-band trailer for Baywatch

2 min read

Folks, I am genuinely 100% no sarcasm looking forward to a Baywatch movie co-starring a WWE wrestler and a guy from High School Musical! What a time to be alive!

My enthusiasm for the upcoming Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron feature film adaptation of the cheesetastic 90’s show that featured David Hasselhoff, Pamela Anderson, and a bunch of other bikini-clad beauties all running in slow motion way too much to be physically feasible should be readily apparent to anybody that saw the funny first trailer. And now there’s even more hilarity to go around with a new red-band trailer!

Much like what Phil Lord and Chris Miller did with their 21 Jump Street reboot, this version of Baywatch will be an R-rated comedy poking fun at the original series. And you can get a taste of some of that R-ratedness – as well as what Priyanka Chopra’s villain is actually up to – in this new preview below!

Along with the trailer, have also unveiled pics of a special Baywatch promo calendar, completed with centrefolds for the lead characters, that the producers of the film has sent them.

Baywatch was directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) and also stars Alexandra Daddario, Jon Bass, Kelly Rohrbach, Ilfenesh Hadera, and Hannibal Buress. Original series stars David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson will also be appearing in some form. Baywatch is scheduled for release on May 26, 2017.

A man of many passions – but very little sleep – I’ve been geeking out over movies, video games, comics, books, anime, TV series and lemon meringues as far back as I can remember. So show up for the geeky insight, stay for the delicious pastries.

    Brilliant. I’ll add to my list to watch.

      Not a cinema movie for me, but yeah blu-ray definitely.

      • Hammersteyn

        Why? It’s unrealistic. How can a Rock swim?

        • Magoo

          The rock’s Johnson is so big that it keeps him afloat.

    Looks silly, never really liked Zac Efron

    • Agreed, but he doesn’t look terrible in this at all.

    • Captain JJ

      I’ve never watched anything with him in it. So I have no idea. Will probably watch this though.

    • Matthew Holliday

      I detested Highschool musical, but he has turned into a pretty decent actor, so credit to him for that.
      That being said, I have zero interest in this whatsoever.
      Not taking itself seriously and poking fun at the original or not, it looks to be a disappointing ride on the hype train.

  • Really looking forward to this!

  • Look at that unrealistic depiction of men. Then they throw in a more average looking guy to show just how disgusting we normal folks look like next to these unrealistic men!


    • Magoo

      Can’t please anyone these days!
