First trailer for Baywatch is a sexy reclaim to fame


Those ABS

I'm not sure anyone was actually looking forward to the Baywatch movie. We heard Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron signed on to star, but it wasn't on anyone's radar until now. This first trailer for the upcoming reboot actually got a few laughs out of me. It's bro humor, yes, but at least the eye candy is fair to both sexes. 

As our Editor-in-Chief Matthew Razak notes, this trailer makes it seem like a 21 Jump Street-esque reboot where the characters knowingly reboot a property. With all the meta jokes about "reclaiming the brand" and slow motion runs, this might be a goofy surprise. But in all honesty, all I need is more shots of Johnson's sick calves.

Baywatch releases May 26th next year.
