5 reasons why we’re excited about Baywatch
When a Baywatch re-make/reboot was first announced, it’s fair to say it was met with a little bit of scepticism and it raised a few questions: will it just be a re-make of the 1990s show? How are they going to make it relevant to today’s audience? Who can replace the Hoff?
When Hollywood heavyweights Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Zac Efron were cast, it piqued people’s interest, as did a whole host of behind-the-scenes clips and Instagram photos.
Then the first trailer came out, and we were happily surprised at what it had to offer. Now, with the second trailer on display in all its hilarious, action-packed glory, we’re officially stoked about Baywatch.
Based on what we’ve seen so far, it’s pretty clear what kind of film this is going to be. Here are five things the trailers have revealed that we’re extremely excited about.
It’s all about bright blue skies and stunning beaches in Baywatch – because an episode where they sit inside playing cards while they wait for it to stop raining just wouldn’t be as fun would it?
You know Dwayne Johnson can’t be in a film without getting the guns out, and has Zac ever kept his shirt on since he got those abs? If this film doesn’t make you want to start working on your beach bod, then nothing will.
Be honest now, why was Baywatch really so successful in the ’90s? Because of the Hoff’s imposing chest hair and stunning ability to suck in the gut? Probably.
This definitely isn’t going to be 90 minutes of people being rescued at sea. There’s enough action and explosions in these trailers to make Micheal Bay proud.
The chemistry between Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson looks brilliant based on what we’ve seen, and if their social profiles are anything to go by, these two had just as much fun between takes.
It’s the perfect reason to grab your best bud and head to the cinemas when the film comes out – check your local listings for release dates.
