It’s not enough to inspire #SquadGoals, but at least the cast of Baywatch looks like they’re having a blast in the latest photo update from Dwayne Johnson. The actor shows off his new squad, and sure, this could be a photo from the Baywatch set — or it could be the centerfold in a Macy’s summer catalogue. Baywatch Squadgate 2016, you be the judge

You can’t have a Baywatch movie without David Hasselhoff. Just a few weeks ago, Dwayne Johnson confirmed what we all assumed by announcing that the star of the original series would be joining the upcoming film, and now we have photographic evidence. While we wait to find out if his equally iconic co-star Pamela Anderson will also be making an appearance in the Baywatch movie, enjoy this set of photos featuring the Hoff and his new pals.
Baywatch doesn’t hit theaters until next summer, so it’s going to be quite a while before we see the first trailer or official photos. Thankfully, Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron are pretty fond of Instagram, and the pair have been sharing lots of images from the set, including our first looks at co-stars Kelly Rohrbach, Priyanka Chopra and Ilfenesh Hadera. If nothing else, the R-rated comedy has a diverse cast and they all look like they’re having a blast.
Following in the footsteps of 21 Jump Street, Dwayne Johnson’s R-rated Baywatch movie has the potential to be another great comedic riff to its classic ’90s predecessor. And while we await the inevitable news of a David Hasselhoff / Pamela Anderson cameo, Johnson has our first look at the upcoming film, featuring Zac Efron, new uniforms and a concept called “alpha balls.”
Destination weddings are, by anyone’s measure, the absolute worst. You shell out big-ass cash money to fly to some far-flung corner of the tropics, just to bear witness to someone else’s happiness? A vacation you take as a favor to someone else, the destination wedding is the scourge of the social calendar, but Adam DeVine and Zac Efron inadvertently stumble upon the perfect antidote to the lameness in the newly revealed trailer for Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates. As the title may suggest, the brothers Mike (DeVine) and Dave (Efron) Stangle need wedding dates. What they get is more than either had bargained for.
Earlier this week, Buzzfeed’s Anne Helen Petersen wrote an essay called “The Shaming of Robert De Niro,” in which she criticized cinephiles who think De Niro should retire rather than continue to harm his legacy as one of his generation’s finest actors by appearing in subpar material. Such arguments, Petersen says, are “snobbery at best and thinly veiled ageism at worst.” Starring in films like The Bag Man, Red Lights, and Killing Season “might not be working with Scorsese for 10 years,” she adds, “but it’s not shameful.”
A great poet once said that girls just want to have fun. And now several more great artists are out to prove it with Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising.
As the sneak peek above suggests, we’ll have the first full, official trailer for Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising tomorrow, but until then, enjoy 15 seconds of footage from the upcoming sequel to the 2014 comedy hit starring Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne. This time around, the pleasant couple next door are besieged by a house full of sorority sisters led by Chloe Moretz, who appears only briefly in the trailer, but seems to have been perfectly cast as yet another cold and calculating antagonist.
When last we saw Mac and Kelly Radner (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne) things were finally starting to calm down for them and their newborn daughter. But calm doesn’t make good material for a sequel, and so for the upcoming Neighbors 2 (subtitled Sorority Rising, apparently), things are about to get rowdy again. At least according to Wikipedia’s plot synopsis. And Wikipedia is never wrong:
The scheduled big-screen reboot of Baywatch has currently taken on the following performers: Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Zac Efron, True Detective’s Alexandra Daddario, and supermodel Kelly Rohrbach. These master thespians have slavishly honed their craft over decades of careful study, schooling themselves in the minor intricacies of the Meisner technique and the Stanislavski method, rehearsing Shakespearean quotations, tongue-twisting their way through the librettos of Gilbert and Sullivan, and overall, elevating the very practice of screen acting. They’ve all immersed themselves in the work of the greats — Olivier, Brando, Davis, Bergman — and earned their roles through innumerable hours of rehearsal, training, and theory. Additionally, all of these people are phenomenally good-looking, though it would be a gross disservice to Ms. Rohrbach to suggest that she earned this role due to anything other than pure talent.
