Muscles, red swimsuits and raunchy charisma — the first trailer for “Baywatch,” released Thursday morning, supplies all that one would anticipate.
“Our team is the elite of the elite,” Dwayne Johnson says in a voiceover over footage of him swimming out to save a burning ship. “We’re the heart and soul of this very beach. We protect what other people don’t want to protect. And we go above and beyond.”
In a touch of meta critique, Zac Efron’s character lands on the scene in the trailer to recover the “Baywatch brand” He and Johnson appear to butt heads at to begin with, at the end of the day collaborate to spare the beach.
