The original Baywatch series focused on two things - David Hasselhoff, and all of the women who alongside him. The new remake of the franchise has put plenty of focus on the macho man characters, played by The Rock and Zac Efron, but the women seem to have fallen by the wayside. Or perhaps, the Bay-side?
Fortunately, that has all changed in this new TV spot. The 30-second spot shifts all of the focus to the ladies of the films, and appropriately titles it, 'Baes'.
In one hilarious moment, Alexandra Daddario's character puts Zac Efron in his place. The scene is looking to be one of the funniest in the movie, and we're hoping the rest of the film will be able to hold its own.
Baywatch will be released on May 26, 2017.
The film stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (Central Intelligence, San Andreas, Fast & Furious franchise) and Zac Efron (Neighbors, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates). Joining Johnson and Efron are Alexandra Daddario (San Andreas, True Detective), Priyanka Chopra (Quantico), Jon Bass (Big Time in Hollywood, FL, The Newsroom), Kelly Rohrbach (Café Society), Ilfenesh Hadera (Billions), and Hannibal Buress (Daddy's Home, Neighbors).
BAYWATCH follows devoted lifeguard Mitch Buchannon (Johnson) as he butts heads with a brash new recruit (Efron). Together, they uncover a local criminal plot that threatens the future of the Bay.
Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses, Identity Thief) is directing the film from a screenplay most recently written by Damian Shannon & Mark Swift and Barry Schwartz. Beau Flynn (San Andreas, Hercules), Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters, Up In the Air), and Michael Berk, Doug Schwartz (Soul Surfer) & Greg Bonann, creators of the iconic Baywatch television series, are producing. The executive producers are Michele Berk (Bandits, Kill the Sparrows), Louise Rosner (The Big Short, The Hunger Games franchise), Tom Pollock (Up In The Air, Oold School), and Ali Bell (Hitchcock). Eli Roth is a co-producer.
