Firstly forgive the title. I was trying to be punny!
Four years ago it was announced that a Baywatch film was in the works. The words “Not another remake!” came to mind. Then came the announcement that Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) and Zac Efron would both be take starring roles and my interest perked. Throw in the fact that Seth Rogan would be directing and I realised there might actually be hope for this remake. After watching the first trailer it’s evident it won’t be taking it’s source material all that seriously and in this case it’s not a bad thing.
The trailer introduces Dwayne Johnson and Kelly Rohrback all oiled up in the roles made famous by David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson. Joining them along for the ride are Zac Efron, Priyanka Chopra and Alexander Daddario. Throw in overt-the-top action, partial nudity, beautiful beaches and more than enough gags to drown in and you have the first trailer for Baywatch.
Did that smack you right in the nostalgia trip or what?
I’m yet to hear if any of the original Baywatch stars such as David Hasselhoff, Pamela Anderson or Carman Electra will make cameos, but if they did, that would be totally awesome. However, the new crew definitely bring enough sex appeal to make you forget the Baywatch of times past.
Baywatch hits cinemas in May 2017, Will you be checking it out?
