baywatch sequel

Baywatch has faced a tsunami of middling to bad reviews, but that won’t stop the comedy-action movie from jetting forward to a sequel, and possibly, a franchise.

Producers and writers are already planning a sequel to Baywatch with the cast, led Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron, returning in their roles. Baywatch itself is a big-screen reboot of the popular ’90s TV show starring David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson, and a sequel would somewhat follow the footsteps of the successful movie reboot of 21 Jump Street. Though, according to reviews, that’s the only thing they have in common.

Baywatch Review

It’s time for the second big studio comedy of the summer to hit theaters in the form of Baywatch, the big screen adaptation of the popular TV series from the 1990s that starred David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson.

Hitting the beach are Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron as a couple of musclehead lifeguards who get caught up in some high stakes action and danger. All the trailers have teased an action comedy in the same vein of 21 Jump Street, but if the first Baywatch reviews are any indication, then it’s nowhere near as good, and it barely keeps itself afloat.

Dwayne Johnson Stars in Home Alone

Dwayne Johnson is one of the biggest stars in the world right now. Not only is he known for invigorating franchises, but he’s just an all-around good guy that everyone seems to want to work with. Dwayne Johnson could probably make any movie he wanted to right now, and he’s probably been offered plenty of projects that he’s turned down.

Now we get to see what some of those projects might have been like thanks to a video from GQ revealing a meeting with his agent where he was pitched sequels to movies like Home Alone and GoodFellas. Needless to say, The Rock could not smell what these movies were cookin’ at all.

Watch as Dwayne Johnson stars in Home Alone, GoodFellas, and more sequels after the jump. Read More »

Baywatch Trailer

A few studio comedies try to break up the summer blockbuster spectacle every year, but some try to combine the laughs with the action. That’s exactly what the big screen adaptation of Baywatch is trying to do by teaming up Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron in what Paramount Pictures hopes will be their own 21 Jump Street.

So far, the trailers for Baywatch have been unimpressive in the comedy department, but a new red band trailer for the summer comedy is easily the best one yet, though it still doesn’t look like the quality buddy cop comedy that it’s trying to be.

rampage movie

Brad Peyton (San Andreas) has started shooting his adaptation of Rampage, based on Midway’s classic and repetitive 1986 video arcade game. Since the game is only about monsters wreaking havoc on buildings, the movie gives Peyton and the screenwriters, including Carlton Cuse (Bates Motel), the freedom to tell the story they want to tell.

The other day, some plot details were leaked, which explained the overall premise of the film. They were fairly run-of-the-mill plot points, what you’d expect from an adaptation of a game without a story. Now, Warner Bros. has released an official synopsis, which has a bit more info on the plot, and the film’s star, Dwayne Johnson, shared a photo from the set.

And when he’s not making movies and spending every waking moment in the gym, The Rock is using Instagram to share new details about his upcoming projects. For example: we now know more about the plot of Rampage and Johnson’s involvement in re-designing the various Jungle Cruise theme park attractions around the world.

baywatch trailer spotlights priyanka chopra

Priyanka Chopra, the Bollywood star who now appears weekly on the ABC show Quantico and is set to terrorize the crew as the villainous Victoria Leeds on Baywatch, was conspicuously missing from much of the advertising for the Dwayne Johnson action comedy. She wasn’t on the posters, and she was barely in the official trailer or TV spots.

But that’s finally changed, with the latest trailer for Baywatch, which features Chopra finally catching some sun as the drug-dealing club owner who seeks to shut Baywatch down all while keeping her fabulous hair intact.
