Paramount Pictures dropped the latest trailer for “Baywatch” and looks more like a spoof than a reboot of the classic TV series. Extremely good-looking people are still there running in slow motion, except this time with an extra surface of rude and super lewd R-rated comedy.
It is also more action-packed than previous trailers of the move we have seen previously, which suggests the studio is finally rolling out is promo blitz two weeks before the film’s release. If luck is on Paramount’s side, this could be this year’s surprise hit “21 jump street” or the start of a franchise ala “Hangover”, both of which attracted frat guys and sorority girls into the summer’s multiplexes.
It helps that the film is directed by Seth Gordon, the man who turned modestly budgeted Horrible Bosses and Identity Thief into certified $100 million hits, and stars Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron, who both attract sizable following.
Also starring, Priyanka Chopra, Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, Jon Bass, Hannibal Buress, and Rob Huebel, Baywatch is scheduled for release on May 25.
