You know Baywatch is going to be one of the best movies of the summer (if not of all time) when Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson proudly screams “I’m oceanic motherfucker!” not once, but twice, in the official trailer.
It’s not going to win any woke awards anytime soon (there’s lots of slow-mo boob shots, and, at one point, The Rock disses Zac Efron by calling him a “pussy”) but if this new clip is anything to go by, we’re in for a fun ride when it finally hits theaters later this summer.
The premise of the movie is Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron’s “undercover” mission to take down some baddies that threaten their beach. Efron plays Matt Brody, a gold medal-winning swimmer who wants to join the “Avengers of the beach,” but Johnson’s Mitch Buchanan isn’t having any of it. In the end, he’s forced to enlist Matt for a mission to stop Victoria Leeds (Priyanka Chopra), who’s leaving a trail of drugs and dead bodies.
Check out the official trailer above, and the previous teasers below.
