Baywatch Trailer

Baywatch Trailer: The Rock Battles Priyanka Chopra in Raunchy Reboot

They may be lifeguards, but they curse like sailors.

Paramount Pictures on Thursday released the first official (super NSFW) trailer for Baywatch, a big-screen adaptation of the ’90s TV drama, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as Mitch Buchannon (played on TV by David Hasselhoff) and Zac Efron as Matt Brody (played on TV by David Charvet).

Baywatch also stars Alexandra Daddario (True Detective) as Summer Quinn, originally played by Nicole Eggert; Kelly Rohrbach (Rizzoli & Isles) as C.J. Parker, originally played by Pamela Anderson; Ilfenesh Hadera (Billions) as Stephanie Holden, originally played by Alexandra Paul; and Priyanka Chopra (Quantico) as evil-doer Victoria Leeds.

Several original Baywatch cast members, including Hasselhoff and Anderson, also make cameos in the film.

    ….so they really want to be 21 Jump Street

  2. Jennifer says:

    This looks hysterical. Stupidly bad, but hysterical. And The Rock in a bathing suit. I am SO in.

  3. Beth says:

    Will Zac Efron play a different character any time soon?

  4. Kevin says:

    Hate to wonder if the big screen version of Baywatch is going to be an EPIC FAIL :-(

  5. Luis Roman says:

    Several questions occur – Was that really “super-raunchy?” Can you parody a show that was a parody of itself? And no cameos in the trailer? Are the Rock’s man boobs going to battle Priyanka Chopra’s boobs? (cause i would pay money to see ThAT movie!)

    …I’d rather rewatch the original series than whatever that was. That…should not be called an adaptation…that’s …I don’t know what to call that, but it doesn’t deserve to be called an adaptation.

  7. Liz says:

    As soon as I heard the Rock was in it, I was out.

  8. c-mo says:

    Wow, that looks…reeeeeeeeeally bad. And all of the cursing just made it sound so much worse, like the writers were trying to make the Rock, the policeman and Zac look tough.
    BTW, is it just me or does the Rock sound a little like President Obama?

  9. John says:

    Liked the trailer and the movie looks promising. Zac Efron seems totally a dude.

    When my brothers and me were kids this was one of our favourite shows. We thought it was so cool that the lifeguards rescued all those people. Lol, we had no idea about the other connotations.
