Hollywood’s bad habit of turning every TV show ever made into a movie can get pretty disheartening, especially for lovers of fresh, original ideas. But even we have to admit that the upcoming Baywatch reboot looks as fun as, well, a day at the beach.
The latest trailer promises all the things you could ever want from a movie about chiseled lifeguards trying to prevent an international drug smuggling ring from infiltrating their beloved beach: abs, explosions, and the same slow motion running that helped turn former Playmate Pamela Anderson into an international icon.
Let’s also talk about the chemistry between Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson. Both are actors who’ve spent the past few years sharpening their comedic skills in various hits and misses, and based on the punchline-heavy trailer, it looks like their work has finally paid off under the direction of Horrible Bosses helmer Seth Gordon.
As for the women of Baywatch, Alexandria Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, and Ilfenesh Hadera will don those iconic red one pieces, with Priyanka Chopra starring as the ruthless kingping intent on making this a cruel, cruel summer. We’re all in.
Baywatch dives into theaters May 26. Watch the trailer above.
