It’s up to Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron to “restore the Baywatch brand.” And it seems like that brand is fast, furious and explosive in the new official trailer for Paramount Pictures’ Baywatch — with plenty of good old-fashioned slow-mo shots thrown in there as well.

Can Baywatch the movie do to Baywatch the TV show what 21 Jump Street the movie did to 21 Jump Street the TV show? We don’t know yet, but it looks like Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron will make it happen or die trying. They star as a couple of lifeguards tasked with restoring the Baywatch brand (how meta) and tracking down a sinister criminal plot threatening their beloved beach.
Also starring are Kelly Rohrbach as the new C.J. Parker (i.e., the new Pamela Anderson), plus Alexandra Daddario, Ilfenesh Hadera, Jon Bass, and Priyanka Chopra. While this Baywatch clearly boasts a goofier tone and some splashier action, it retains the same obsession with ogling suntanned hardbodies. Check out the Baywatch Super Bowl spot below.

In one week, Super Bowl LI will take over television ratings. Millions of Americans will be glued to the small screen, and while many are interested the big game between the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons, plenty are just interested in the commercials that will take the coveted 30-second spots that cost an average of $5 million this year.
Most of the commercials will be for beer, chips, cars and whatnot, but there will be some spots pushing some of the upcoming movies of 2017. A couple expected blockbuster spots will be hitting the air, but there may be some surprises as well. So which 2017 Super Bowl trailers can we expect to see? Read More »

Paramount Pictures has dropped the first trailer for Baywatch, the big-screen adaptation of the 1990s TV series about scantily clad hotties running in slow motion. But this isn’t that Baywatch. Yes, there are still super attractive people hanging out on a beach in skimpy swimwear. But this one is much more in the vein of 21 Jump Street the movie, starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron as a pair of mismatched lifeguards who set out to “restore the Baywatch brand.” Ha ha, get it?
Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, Jon Bass, and Ilfenesh Hadera play some of the other lifeguards surrounding them, and Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) directs. Watch the first Baywatch trailer below.

Parker has officially boarded the cast of the new Baywatch reboot, joining her old co-star David Hasselhoff and new leads Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron. See the photographic evidence after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
We’re back in Las Vegas at CinemaCon, the annual gathering of movie theater exhibitors. As you probably know by now, theater owners from around the nation gather to, among other things, watch presentations from all of the major movie studios previewing their film slates for the upcoming year and beyond. The opening night presentation was Paramount Pictures, which came to Vegas to promote Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, Ben-Hur, the first teaser trailer for the Ring franchise film Rings, the first footage from Tom Cruise’s sequel Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, Robert Zemeckis’ spy thriller Allied, xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, and a very early look at Baywatch starring The Rock and Zac Efron.
But the two biggest surprises involved Prisoners/Sicario/Blade Runner 2 filmmaker Denis Villeneuve adaptation of Story Of Your Life and the shocking lack of any Star Trek Beyond preview despite having Simon Pegg and JJ Abrams in town and on stage for an award celebration. The new Villeneuve film seems like a smart science fiction film, think Contact meets Close Encounters of a Third Kind. Hit the jump to watch a video blog reaction talking about all the clips shown at the presentation.

Once upon a time, Baywatch was one of the most popular television shows in the world, which made series star David Hasselhoff one of the most watched actors in the world. Pamela Anderson’s C.J. Parker may have grabbed all of the headlines, but it was Hasselhoff’s Mitch Buchannon who served as the show’s constant center, appearing in every season of the original show before making the jump to the ill-fated Baywatch: Hawaii. He was a known commodity before this series (Knight Rider, anyone?), but the man’s legacy will ultimately revolve around him running shirtless on a beach in extreme slow motion.
And since he probably doesn’t have anything better to do these days, Hasselhoff officially signed on to appear in the upcoming film version of Baywatch a few weeks ago. Now, set pictures have arrived online, showing him standing alongside the one and only Dwayne Johnson. This is what happens when two completely separate pop culture hemispheres collide.
