Zac Efron's Abs Take Center Stage in New Baywatch Trailer
We can now add “I’m oceanic, motherf—er” to the list of NSFW one-liners from the upcoming Baywatch, director Seth Gordon’s film flushed with “‘this is my beach, b–’ rated R humor.” A new trailer—complete with slo-mo running, explosions, expletives, and abs of steel—has arrived to tease Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron’s “undercover” mission to take down some baddies that threaten their beach.
Efron plays Matt Brody, a gold medal-winning swimmer who wants to join the “Avengers of the beach” but is blissfully unaware of all the drug-busting the squad does under wraps. Though Johnson’s Mitch Buchanan isn’t impressed, his boss thinks hiring him is a good PR move. So he’s forced to enlist Matt for a mission to stop Victoria Leeds (Priyanka Chopra), who’s leaving a trail of drugs and dead bodies in her wake.
But first, he’ll throw the new recruit through the ringer. “This is Baywatch, you p–!” Mitch shouts. As evidenced by Efron’s undercover get-up in the trailer, he might not fully grasp the concept of what they’re doing as a team.
Baywatch also stars Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, Ilfenesh Hadera, and Jon Bass, one of whom will “probably die,” according to Mitch. But first, they have to handle some “dead man’s fat” and good old-fashioned lifeguarding.
The film hits theaters on May 26. Check out the new trailer and poster at the top.
