Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson premiered the first official trailer for director Seth Gordon’s adaptation of the Nineties TV show Baywatch on Thursday. Johnson stars alongside Zac Efron in the modern take on the beach-set series that starred Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff.
The clip opens by highlighting Johnson’s take on Hasselhoff’s classic role as Mitch Buchannon, the lead lifeguard of the Los Angeles County Lifeguards who takes his job and team seriously. His boss confronts him about how city council is cutting back funding for their team and that they’ll need to rebrand Baywatch.
Gold medalist Matt Brody, played by Efron, is hired as a PR stunt to drum up more interest in the team’s work. The hard-partying young gun ends up butting heads with Buchannon, who wants to investigate a dead body found on the beach they work to protect.
Alex Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, Priyanka Chopra, Jon Bass and Ilfenesh Hadera also star in the film, which will hit theaters on May 26th. Hasselhoff and Anderson will also make appearances in the movie.
