Welcome to the Legion!


The very first trailer for the 2017’s reboot of Baywatch is finally here! Unlike the television show on which the movie is based, Baywatch is definitely going to be rated R. Methinks it has something to do with two dudes talking about their balls and then giving said balls voices. You decide.

Baywatch stars Dwayne Johnson as veteran lifeguard Mitch Buchannon. If that name sounds familiar, that’s because it was once played by David Hasselhoff in the TV show. Mitch comes into conflict with a cocky newcomer named Matt Brody (Zac Efron), a gold medal-winning swimmer whose antics may or may not remind you of Ryan Lochte. Despite their clashing styles, Mitch and Matt team up when they catch wind of a criminal conspiracy led by the villainous Victoria Leeds (Priyanka Chopra).

The trailer also has moments of comedy. A lot of it, actually. Johnson and Efron are a great comedic pair, and the rest of the cast lend themselves to hilarious, self-aware jokes we’ve all talked about while watching the original series.

Directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses), Baywatch is set to arrive in theaters May 26, 2017. You can watch the trailer below.
