Johnson and Efron play the lifeguards, whose beach is affected by serious crimes. When dead bodies and other criminal offenses are sighted on the beach, Johnson’s Mitch Buchannon gets alerted. He gets help from a young and dynamic lifeguard, Matt Brody, to solve the cases on the Bay.

2.Lots of Fun Elements

One thing is clear, fans are going to laugh a lot while watching Baywatch, a hint of which has been dropped in its released trailers. The hilarious dialogues and racy scenes seem to be aimed at making the audience laugh.

It has been revealed that Baywatch has received an R-rating. Therefore, it may not be a surprise if fans get to watch hot scenes and sexual content.

The director of Baywatch, Seth Gordon, has confirmed that there are a lot of funny scenes. Plus, a bunch of funny dialogues and punch lines are headed the audience’s way.

3.Baywatch Film Is Based On A TV Show

This action-comedy film is based on the television series of the same name. Baywatch TV show stars David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson are set to appear in the film.

So far, the role details of these two stars are kept under wraps. In addition, the trailers released have not introduced them.

Baywatch Cast Speaks Up

The cast of Baywatch is busy promoting the film. It is set to be released by Paramount Pictures on May 26, 2017. Johnson has recently told The Sun that the new Baywatch film is “far dirtier” than the TV series.

He further adds that: “I think people are going to be shocked that Baywatch has got dirty – but there are a lot of laughs, reports the aforementioned source.

On the other hand, Bollywood actress Chopra is set for the promotion of the film. She says, “I think we have limited time for promotions as even Dwayne Johnson has another film lined up.” Johnson has other films in line such as Fast & Furious 8 and Jumanji 2.

The Quantico actress further adds that: “They are planning a specific tour around the world to promote the film,” reports Bollywood Life.

In Baywatch, Chopra plays the anti-hero character named Victoria Leeds. It is seen in the second trailer that Leeds is going to mess with Matt and Mitch. She seems to have some devastating plans for the beach.

The film is likely to face some competition from another big budget film such as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 which will be released in the first week of May. It is also likely to face stiff competition from Alien: Covenant that will hit theaters on May 19, 2017.

The film also stars Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, Jon Bass, Ilfenesh Hadera as Mitch’s love interest, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II in key roles.
