The beach is back in Baywatch Super Bowl TV spot

6 February 2017 12:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Paramount released a new TV spot for the Baywatch reboot during last night’s Super Bowl. The quick 30 second teaser maintains the spirit of the first official full trailer by presenting the tone as inspired by the meta humor stuffed in the highly successful modern-day Jump Street movies. Check it out here…

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

Baywatch is set for release on May 19th 2017 sees Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) directing a cast that includes Dwayne Johnson (Fast & Furious 7), Zac Efron (Dirty Grandpa), Alexandra Daddario (San Andreas), Kelly Rohrbach (Two and a Half Men), Priyanka Chopra (Quantico), Jon Bass (Big Tim in Hollywood, Fl), Hannibal Buress (Daddy’s Home), Belinda (The Cheetah Girls 2) and Ilfenesh Hadera (Billions).

Super Bowl Spot for 'Baywatch' Starring Dwayne Johnson & Zac Efron

5 February 2017 9:03 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"While you're watching the game, they are watching the bay." Paramount has debuted a Super Bowl TV spot for the summer comedy version of Baywatch, the movie, from director Seth Gordon. This is a fairly tame TV spot, just selling all the attractive guys and girls that are in this more than anything. Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson play two Baywatch lifeguards; also starring Alexandra Daddario, Priyanka Chopra, Pamela Anderson, Ilfenesh Hadera, Charlotte McKinney, Kelly Rohrbach, Hannibal Buress, plus of course David Hasselhoff. I'm still hoping this turns out okay, but this TV spot is not an impressive sell for this movie. You have to take a look at this anyway just because it stars Dwayne Johnson. Here's the new Super Bowl TV spot for Seth Gordon's Baywatch movie, direct from YouTube: You can still watch the first official trailer for Baywatch here, to see even more footage from this. »

The movie, directed by Seth Gordon, comes out May 26 on Memorial Day weekend and reunites Johnson with his San Andreas co-star of two summers ago, Alexandra Daddario. In the new spot, Johnson and Efron are the focus — especially a very patriotic Efron. The duo star as devoted lifeguard Mitch Buchannon… »

‘Baywatch’ Super Bowl Trailer: Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron Save Lives and Fight Crime

The latest clip features Dwayne Johnson as devoted lifeguard Mitch Buchannon and Zac Efron as Matt Brody, the reckless new recruit, butting heads and taking charge. After finding a dead body in their beach and worried about the future of the bay, Mitch decides that the lifeguards should take a look at the criminal activities going on.

Moments of hilarity, buff bods and plenty of action with the team in full “lifeguard pursuit” will ensue.

Baywatch Super Bowl Spot Brings Us Back to the Beach

5 February 2017 5:35 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

This year, moviegoers will be getting two movies that started out as successful TV shows that have been converted into R-rated comedies. Warner Bros. has CHiPs, which looks to be a whole lot of action and a whole lot of sex jokes. Whereas Paramount Pictures has their new take on Baywatch, which looks to also have a lot of action and sex jokes, but they have The Rock and a bunch of good looking people in swimsuits on their side. That gave them the confidence to drop some big money and release a new trailer for Baywatch during the Super Bowl.

Dwayne Johnson teased the brand new trailer would be airing during the big game on his Instagram yesterday. In his post, he joked about the fact that he was the only guy wearing sneakers on the beach, but also that he has two trailers airing during the Super Bowl this year, »

Baywatch Super Bowl Promo Features The Avengers Of The Beach

5 February 2017 5:28 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Mitch Buchannon assembles the Avengers of the Beach in this all-new promo for BaywatchSeth Gordon’s R-rated romp due to trot off the beach and into theaters on May 26th.

Doing good on The Rock’s Instagram post, Paramount debuted the bonkers teaser during tonight’s Super Bowl, which briefly steals the spotlight away from New England Patriots, Atlanta Falcons and the good ol’ pigskin to focus on Mitch and the gang. As his prized stretch of sand is placed under threat by Priyanka Chopra’s greedy oil tycoon, Victoria Leeds, Dwayne Johnson’s hulking hero prepares to stage a revolt against the corporate Powers That Be, and he’s brought along a motley crew to help him.

Rounding out Baywatch‘s roster of talent are Zac Efron (Matt Brody), Alexandra Daddario (Summer), Kelly Rohrbach (C.J.), Ilfenesh Hadera (Stephanie Holden) and Jon Bass as Ronnie, a “funny, awkward »

‘Baywatch’: Pecs & Chests Bounce In This Boomin’ New Super Bowl Spot [Watch]

5 February 2017 4:59 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The career of filmmaker Seth Gordon is a really curious and odd one. The director started out of the gate with one of the most beloved documentaries of the aughts with “The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters.” He quickly attached himself to many promising projects and looked to be on his way to possible mirror a career like Jason Reitman’s or Paul Feig’s or even creating films like something out of Zach Braff’s “Garden State” (which is nowhere as bad as some snobs claim it is).

Summer is coming in revealing Baywatch movie motion posters

27 January 2017 2:41 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: David Sztypuljak

What’s better than the multitude of posters released for the Baywatch movie released last week……? That’s right….. the same posters in motion form! Yesterday we had the same treat for Disney’s Beauty and the Beast but today it’s the turn of The Rock, Zac Efron and their co-stars to strut their funky stuff in their Baywatch getup!

The tone of this new movie seems to be very similar to what we’ve seen in the likes of similar reboots of 21 Jump Street with a theme mocking the original for its faults but equally embracing what made the shows so successful.

Icy Character Posters For Baywatch Look Forward To Summer

23 January 2017 11:56 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Taking the famous Stark motto and flipping it on its head, the latest round of character posters for Paramount’s Baywatch movie have arrived online for your viewing pleasure.

Featuring Dwayne Johnson and the gang suited and booted, the studio’s latest promo material keeps up tradition in that it focuses on Baywatch’s core team of lifeguards – namely Zac Efron (Matt Brody), Alexandra Daddario (Summer), Kelly Rohrbach (C.J.), Ilfenesh Hadera (Stephanie Holden) and Jon Bass as Ronnie, a “funny, awkward and a skilled disco dancer at the beach” – along with their primary adversary: Priyanka Chopra’s greedy oil tycoon, Victoria Leeds.

Directed by Seth Gordon of Horrible Bosses fame, the latest script for Baywatch hails from Damian Shannon and Mark Swift, and we understand the general gist of their reimagining pits Johnson and his crew against Chopra’s imposing villain. The future of the Bay hangs in the balance, »

Save yourselves from the new Baywatch Movie Character Posters

23 January 2017 10:08 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

The 80s are back – didn’t you hear? As well as fueling a certain website’s origin it was also the decade that gave us some of the most shameless Saturday TV entertainment. And while we wait for the big screen reboots of Airwolf and Knight Rider (CHiPS is already coming – don’t worry…) we can console ourselves with Baywatch – the movie!

The Seth Gordon directed enterprise has wisely enlisted the services of Dwayne Johnson to front their balls out, foul-mouthed reboot for the series. The tone of the new film is, as expected, a very knowing one. The series, starring David Hasselhoff and the puberty-stirring Pamela Anderson, was fairly tame compared to what’s coming up here. The new character posters for the film were released today and are as subtle as the over the top first trailer we recently enjoyed.
