Along with the silliness and downright rudeness of some of the motion posters released last week, the TV spot followed in the same fashion, With Dwayne Johnson as Mitch taking the young Zac Efron under his wings with almighty frustration, the big game TV Spot included a scene of Zac Efron in a pair of budgie smugglers. According to Dwayne Johnson, he couldn’t wear as it was a desecration of the US flag. Also, included was Johnson as the big hero as he carried someone out of the sea and the obligatory hot woman in her swimsuit running in slow motion. Lots of tongue in cheek action to keep your head shaking in disbelief.

With a cast that includes Dwayne Johnson in the role of Mitch Buchannon which, in the original Saturday evening TV series, was made famous by Knight Rider star, David Hasselhoff. He is joined by Zac Efron, Priyanka Chopra, Alexandra Daddario, Jon Bass, Kelly Rohrbach, Ilfenesh Hadera. Looking at all the trailers so far we can guarantee this reboot should not be taken seriously. It’s meant to mock its predecessor and up to excess to an R-rated state. We have a feeling this is going to be one of our dirty, guilty little pleasures.

Baywatch the movie is set for release on May 19th, 2017,

    Looks like it could be fun if they go for more of a 21 Jump Street vibe. It’s not as if they could possibly take the Baywatch premise seriously anyway 🙂
