Dwayne Johnson Puts the Bae in the ‘Bad Boy Version’ of the ‘Baywatch’ Teaser
Who watches the Baywatchmen? All of us, okay. We are all going to be watching the Baywatch movie, because, still, none of us can believe it actually exists. It must be seen. It must be experienced. And if you’re just dying to know what we’re all in for, look no further than this teaser Dwayne Johnson posted on his Twitter today, and stay tuned for tomorrow’s first trailer.
They’re definitely not taking themselves too seriously with this, and honestly, when you have a scantily-clad Zac Efron and The Rock saving people on beaches, you’ve gotta be at least a little gleeful with it all. There’s plenty of bay in this trailer, dramatic until The Rock emerges from the sea holding a limp form in his arms to the tune of Biggie’s “Hypnotize.” (Who wants to bet that song choice was 100% Dwayne’s?)
BAYWATCH follows devoted lifeguard Mitch Buchannon (Dwayne Johnson) as he butts heads with a brash new recruit (Zac Efron). Together, they uncover a local criminal plot that threatens the future of the Bay.
Both Johnson and Efron are extremely talented comedic actors, and Dwayne, especially, brings an unprecedented level of enthusiasm to every role he plays, so getting to watch them butt heads could actually be pretty funny. We don’t get much from this teaser, but it at least lets us know that it will be taking exactly zero of this seriously.
