Baywatch Gets Patriotic With All-New Motion Poster

4 July 2016 11:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though his Instagram feed has acted as a hub for all things Fast 8 in recent weeks, Dwayne Johnson has shared an appropriately patriotic shot of the Baywatch crew to coincide with the July 4 celebrations in the States.

With sparkler in hand, it is Johnson’s musclebound Mitch Buchannon who anchors the ensemble – replete with Uncle Sam hat – and below you’ll also find Jon Bass, Alex Daddario, Zac Efron, Kelly Rohrbach and Ilfenesh Hadera among the lineup.

There’s also room for Priyanka Chopra’s chief villain. An archetypal suit, the lifeguards will be going toe-to-toe with a greedy oil tycoon hellbent on exploiting the Bay for corporate interests. Enter The Rock and Co, henceforth known as the Baywatch family.

On May 19th, 2017 you will witness these amazing women @kellyrohrbach @alexannadaddario @priyankachopra @ilfenator save lives, @thejonbass steal the show, @zacefron’s ripped 28 pack abs and some big, brown, bald »

Dwayne Johnson’s hulking Mitch Buchannon spearheads the “Avengers of the beach” in the latest action shot from Paramount’s Baywatch movie.

Taking to Facebook just yesterday, the charismatic lead unveiled the ensemble snap, showcasing the film’s leading stars sporting the iconic red swimwear as they make that infamous slow-motion jog towards the camera. From left to right, we can see relative newcomer Kelly Rohrbach, Johnson’s San Andreas co-star Alexandra Daddario, Ilfenesh Hadera, The Rock himself, Neighbors alum Zac Efron and Jon Bass.

It landed online tethered with an appropriately larger-than-life caption, too, with Johnson stating that: “We are the reason you feel safe in the water… We are the reason you feel safe on the sand. We are also literally running iconically in slo-motion because apparently that makes everyone’s kibbles and bits look sexy.”
