Since the main reason for the popularity of Baywatch back in the 90s was the slow-motion running of Pamela Anderson and the rest of her lifeguard crew, you would think that the first look from the forthcoming film adaptation would employ the same tactics. But this is 2016, and the big stars of the Baywatch movie are Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron. They’re not doing any slow-motion running, and they’re not even shirtless. But this Baywatch first look photo will definitely have you wanting them to give you mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, regardless of your sexual preference. Read More »

If Dwayne Johnson stops working, the magical spell that powers him will wear off and he’ll shrivel into a broken husk of a man, forced to wander the earth as a painfully ordinary human without superhuman charisma or a muscular build torn straight out of ancient myth. It’s the only way to explain his current schedule, which has him working non-stop for the foreseeable future.
It’s also the only way to really explain the newly announced San Andreas 2, which will see Hollywood’s most likable guy returning to one of his more shrug-worthy movies. The sequel will once again find Johnson facing down a seismic catastrophe, but the scope will be a bit more global. And maybe, just maybe, we’ll actually get a scene where The Rock stops an earthquake by literally punching the ground. Fingers crossed.

If you told us a year ago that I’d be interested in a Baywatch movie, I would have given you a serious case of side-eye before tracking down a more trustworthy person to engage in conversation. But here we are – I have no idea what a comedic take on this immensely popular (but oh-so-terrible) drama series starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron looks like, but I know that I’m very curious to find out.
Now, another intriguing performer has joined the cast. Priyanka Chopra is best know in the Western world for her role on ABC’s new series Quantico, but she’s a huge movie star in her native India. Naturally, her next gig involves menacing a bunch of buff and busty life guards as the villain of Baywatch.

Not liking Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a crime punishable by sneers and glares. The infinitely charismatic movie star is one of the most watchable men in modern cinema. Even when he boards a stinker (and he’s made his fair share of awful movies), he walks away smelling like roses. He’s unsinkable, a buoyant pile of muscle and enthusiasm powered by lots and lots of cod.
So if there’s anyone who can get us interested in a film version of the Rampage video game series, it’s Johnson, who announced the film’s new screenwriters on his Instagram page. As a bonus, he also revealed the schedule for his next year, which seriously, no joke, sounds like it would kill any other human being.

Universal doesn’t want their Fast & Furious franchise to end anytime soon. Fast & Furious 7 made over $1.5 billion dollars at the box office, and even aside from the money, this series shows no signs of slowing down. Director Justin Lin raised the bar with Fast Five, making these movies more popular than ever before. Understandably, Universal wants to keep the brand going outside of the main franchise, and they may plan on doing that with spinoffs.
A new rumor indicates Monica Fuentes (Eva Mendes) will return for Fast & Furious 8, following her brief post-credits cameo in Fast Five and possibly ahead of her own spinoff film. Learn more about the potential Fast and Furious spinoff after the jump.

A generation after the original Baywatch debuted on TV, Paramount is preparing to introduce a whole new generation to the joys of slow-mo beach runs. Which means, of course, they’ll need a new C.J. Parker, the pneumatic lifeguard played by Pamela Anderson in the 1990s TV series.
