After giving us brand new looks at some of 2017’s hottest films, like John Wick: Chapter 2, It, The Mummy and more, Entertainment Weekly is back to bring us yet another great photo. This time, it’s from the upcoming Baywatch reboot starring a whole bunch of impossibly good looking people, including Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron.
It’s that dynamic duo who feature in this new still, as they appear to be emerging from the ocean all soaked and suntanned – and looking impossibly good while doing so, of course. Not afraid to hide that a large focus of the film is on beautiful people running around beautiful beaches, director Seth Gordon explains that the iconic show on which his reboot is based was also all about showcasing beauty:
“The history of the show is to showcase beauty,” Gordon says. “There’s a beat where one of the characters sees someone running and asks, ‘Is she running in slo-mo? And why is she wet but not that wet?’ Stuff like that shows that we are in on the joke.”
The director also noted that Baywatch will include lots of “winks and nods to the series’ signature cheesecake moments,” which will no doubt please fans. As will the fact that the film will have roles for the old guard as well, given that both David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson are set to cameo. All in all, it sounds like Paramount’s upcoming reboot is going to be a fun, raunchy outing for the property and one that’ll surely make for the perfect summer movie.
Baywatch swims into theatres on May 26th and aside from Efron and Johnson, it stars Priyanka Chopra, Alexandra Daddario and Kelly Rohrbach, among others.
