Dwayne Johnson is saving lives in the Baywatch trailer

Baywatch (2017)

Though you could probably subtitle this cinematic take on Baywatch with Battle Of The Bods, there does appear to be more to it than just Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario and the rest of the team looking good in swimsuits. Check out the first trailer...

Promising to inject more comedy into the sun-soaked drama series concept, the movie finds Johnson's Mitch Buchanan caring for the beach as much as the people who use it. But when his boss, Captain Thorpe (Rob Heubel) hires hotshot Matt Brody (Efron), the pair initially butts heads.

But when a serious threat rears its head, the team springs into action – even if the local law enforcement officers aren't too thrilled.

This one will sink or swim based on the charisma of its stars and the chance of a few gags. With Priyanka Chopra, Ilfenesh Hadera, Kelly Rohrbach, Jon Bass and (because it surely wouldn't be Baywatch without him, despite him not popping up yet in this footage) David Hasselhoff, the movie will be out in the UK on 12 May next year.
