2016 Global Citizen FestivalPriyanka Chopra warned/promised that the 2017 "Baywatch" movie "has a lot of slo-mo coming." And she showed off her own slow-motion moves on "Late Night With Seth Meyers."

Priyanka told Seth that, when she was growing up in India, she and her family would run to the couch to watch "Baywatch." It was her mother's favorite TV show, and a huge deal. "You had to watch, it was the big American dream." She still loves the show -- despite Seth making fun of it. In her defense of the show, she argued, "Who has ever run better in slow motion than those guys?"

On that note, Priyanka showed off the slow-motion run she had practiced and refined. Watch it around the 1:17 mark -- love the little head turn!
She will actually be playing the villain in "Baywatch," in a role originally written for a man. She filmed last winter and spring, between shooting her "Quantico" series for ABC.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is one of the stars of the movie, and he announced her casting on Instagram:

"She's one of the biggest stars in the world. Insanely talented, relentlessly smokin' and extremely dangerous - perfect for #BAYWATCH. Welcome @PriyankaChopra to our bad ass and incredibly dysfunctional family. Cue RATED R slo-mo running on the beach."

He later updated with another post praising his co-star, which got a repost and response from Priyanka:

"Baywatch," directed by Seth Gordon, follows Dwayne Johnson's lifeguard Mitch and his new recruit (played by Zac Efron) as they uncover a criminal plot that threatens the bay. The action comedy co-stars Alexandra Daddario, Jon Bass, Kelly Rohrbach, Ilfenesh Hadera, and Hannibal Buress, and it's scheduled for release in theaters May 19th, 2017.
