The first official trailer for the "Baywatch" movie has everything you could ever want: Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron showing off their ripped bodies, some criminal hijinks, some tongue-in-cheek jokes, and of course, slow-motion running down the beach.
Johnson plays Mitch Buchannon, the veteran head of Baywatch, who is forced to "rebrand" the unit. That introduces new recruit Matt Brody (Efron), who butts heads with his new boss. They're forced to work together when they discover a criminal drug ring run by Priyanka Chopra.Judging by the trailer, director Seth Gordon ("Horrible Bosses") keeps things fast-paced, with lots of banter between Johnson and Efron, flashy action set-pieces, and plenty of poking fun at the "Baywatch" aura. It looks very much in the vein of "21 Jump Street," another TV show successfully turned into a movie.
"Baywatch" opens in theaters May 26.
