New ‘Baywatch’ Trailer Is NSFW and Totally Ridiculous

EDIT

“Everything that you guys are talking about sounds like a really entertaining but far-fetched TV show” — so says Zac Efron in the new international trailer for Baywatch, which combines the self-awareness of 21 Jump Street (or seems to be trying to do that) with the ridiculous action of your average Dwayne Johnson movie. The latest trailer for the comedic retread of the classic ’90s TV series drops the green-band pleasantries for a profanity-laden, NSFW sneak peek at the upcoming film, and though we’re not 100 percent sold on it just yet, Baywatch looks pretty darn watchable, at the very least.

Johnson plays a veteran lifeguard who must contend with a hotshot newcomer, played by Efron. Working with a crew that includes Alexandra Daddario and Kelly Rohrbach, the pair must overcome their differences (of course) to take down some nefarious criminal-types…on the beach. Hopefully director Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) and screenwriters Damian Shannon and Mark Swift (Freddy vs. Jason) have something to offer beyond a Jump Street knock-off.

BAYWATCH follows devoted lifeguard Mitch Buchannon (Johnson) as he butts heads with a brash new recruit (Efron). Together, they uncover a local criminal plot that threatens the future of the Bay.

Baywatch also stars Priyanka Chopra, Hannibal Buress, Rob Huebel and Jon Bass, and hits theaters on May 26.
