With just weeks to go before Baywatch (hopefully) makes a splash at the box office, a new red band trailer has revealed what kind of hilarious filth audiences can expect from the summer’s first big comedy.
Baywatch follows devoted lifeguard Mitch Buchannon (Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson) as he butts heads with a brash new recruit (Zac Efron). Together, they uncover a local criminal plot that threatens the future of the Bay. It is based on the long-running and wildly popular television series of the same name that originally debuted in 1989. At least two stars from that series, Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff, will be making appearances in the film.
It may feel like we’ve already seen a lot of Baywatch because of the heavy promotional campaign, but if you look closely every trailer appears to be largely cut together from the same three or four sequences. There is the introduction of Efron’s character, the morgue, the police station, and one (maybe two) brief action shots. A lot of everything in between could easily be footage that doesn’t actually appear in the film. Whatever the case, there is definitely a lot of movie left to see.
Baywatch arrives in theaters May 25.
