"The ocean's most powerful force will emerge," promises this debut teaser for the Baywatch movie reboot.
And what's that, exactly? It's Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, literally rising from beneath the waves to show us his version of David Hasselhoff's Mitch Buchanan in action, carrying a helpless, soggy soul to shore. To the tune of The Notorious B.I.G.'s "Hypnotize."
The teaser promises we'll see the first full Baywatch trailer on Thursday, as does Johnson on Twitter, saying, "Tomorrow morning I'll launch our world premiere trailer of #BAYWATCH. Bad boy Rated R version. #AvengersOfTheBeach #AndHighlyDysfunctional."
The movie comes from Horrible Bosses/Identity Thief director Seth Gordon and drops May 19, 2017. Its beguilingly starry cast includes Zac Efron, Pamela Anderson, Hasselhoff himself, Priyanka Chopra, Alexandra Daddario, Hannibal Buress and The Office's Oscar Nuñez.
Update: Zac Efron dropped his own little teaser. Boob humor!
While you await the trailer, watch Johnson, executive producer of Fuse's Clash of the Corps, break it down with a few cast members in Hawaii:
