While Winter continues to blast its arctic chill across much of the country, this Summer's all-star, big-screen reboot of Baywatch keeps looking hotter. The film, scheduled for release in May, stars Dwayne Johnson as Alpha-lifeguard Mitch Buchannon and Zac Efron as brash new recruit Matt Brody. In the film, Brody helps to uncover a local criminal plot that threatens the future of the Bay, teaming him up with Buchannon and his fellow lifeguards.
Baywatch is a big screen update/reboot of the beloved ocean-side TV series that ran on NBC, and syndication, for over a decade. Previously-released trailers have indicated that the film is less daytime television-friendly, with an emphasis on R-rated humor. A newly-released set of motion posters for the movie only further drives that idea home.
On the heels of its new character poster campaign, in which we were told "Don't Worry, Summer Is Coming," Paramount Pictures has defrosted their lifeguards with additional motion posters. The seven motion posters expand the tongue-in-cheek tone of the film's previous marketing efforts, highlighting not only Johnson and Efron but their costars: Summer Quinn (Alexandra Daddario), C. J. Parker (Kelly Rohrbach), Stephanie Holden (Ilfenesh Hadera), villainous Victoria Leeds (Priyanka Chopra) and last, but not least, Ronnie (Jon Bass) stripping down to his own body-positive beat to provide the heat.
