This summer movie season is looking pretty hot, a sizeable percentage of which is contributed by Baywatch, thanks to the ridiculous attractiveness of its cast. This is a movie that knows how hot it is too, so if you were worried that there wouldn't be quite enough nudity then know that The Rock has got you covered. The Baywatch movie is guaranteeing two things: slow motion running and beautiful people taking their clothes off. Here's how much dirtier Baywatch will be from the original Baywatch TV show.
Hmmm, I'm pretty sure that plot isn't too important a concern for this movie, but who's seeing this for the plot in the first place?
One of the key ways that the Baywatch movie will differ from the classic television show is that it will be an R-rated comedy. Baywatch is going for broke and turning the ridiculousness of the concept up a few pegs, leaning hard into its R-rating. Dwayne Johnson told The Sun that they did not hold back on the nudity, making sure that viewers would always have something to ogle at on-screen. Johnson also makes an illuminating comparison to the show, which was technically a family show on at a family time.
Dwayne Johnson, also known as the busiest man in Hollywood, has been working hard on his Baywatch movie, and can hardly fault him for being excited over it. The film takes the 21 Jump Street approach by adapting a typically serious but accidentally hilarious TV show and making it into a purposefully hilarious and self-aware movie. The trailers and marketing have done everything they can to sell the movie as this summer's big uproarious comedy, but we'll see how it all shakes down this May.
Want to see a preview of some of that nudity-filled Baywatch? Check out one of the trailers for the film below, though without the actual nudity, you'll have to buy a ticket to see that.
Baywatch is directed by Seth Gordon and stars Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Alexandria Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, Priyanka Chopra, and Jon Bass, with cameos from original series stars David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson. The film is expected to help kick off the summer on May 26, 2017.
