Twin Peaks Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering David Lynch and Mark Frost's limited, 18-episode continuation of the Twin Peaks television series.So that's how David Lynch does an info dump. First, with a cheeky, knowing scene featuring the brothers Horne: "Jerry, what's going on?" asks Ben (Richard Beymer) after his cannabis-infused sibling (David Patrick Kelly) phones him from the woods. "I think I'm high!…I don't know where I am!" Jerry screams, perhaps speaking for a good subsection of the Twin Peaks revival audience, who have, over the six prior installments, been given only glimpses of a larger picture. Narrative momentum comes in asides; the more prevalent longueurs are reserved for atmosphere and mood, for full immersion in apparent stasis.Part 7 shakes things up, following the brotherly freak-out with several story reveals that come in quick succession. But there's a niggling sense throughout all the »

When we look back on Dwayne Johnson's breakthrough to the A-list in about ten years' time (“Did President Johnson get the film roles he deserved?”), we'll have to consider that his status as franchise viagra, as demonstrated in the soon-to-be-released Baywatch, has led him to pick projects that are sort of beneath him.

Baywatch is the latest in a line of formerly popular TV shows to get an ironic Starsky & Hutch-style big screen reboot, following the enormous success of the Jump Street movies and the resounding failure of this year's ChiPS: Law & Disorder. With tongue firmly in cheek, Johnson has been promoting the film on his Instagram by referring to his new crew of lifeguards, »

Previously the name Baywatch brought to mind the sunkissed Saturday afternoons where we here in the UK soaked up the sun via our cathode rays. It was an intensely popular show on both sides of the Atlantic, with a detective spin-off called Baywatch Nights »

Even before the first teaser was released, we all had a pretty good idea what we’d be getting from a Baywatch movie led by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson: The same beautiful people and pulse-pounding action of Baywatch the TV series and Baywatch Nights. The new film certainly appears to be delivering on the adrenaline, as all previous previews included the kind of explosions we expect to see in the Rock’s wake. And this latest trailer shows off all the gorgeous beach babes who are first and foremost life-saving professionals. Zac Efron’s character is a brash new arrival who hasn’t quite gotten with the program, which now includes going undercover and hanging out in morgues. But when that necrotic whatever drips right on his face here, you have to feel for the guy.
Baywatch hits the shore on May 26.

Get ready for a whole lot of good-looking people doing raunchy stuff at the beach because a brand new trailer for Baywatch has been released. Warning: this trailer is most definitely Nsfw so, if you're going to watch it at your desk, you should probably at the very least put on your headphones first. This new trailer definitely goes big on the raunchy humor and makes it clear that this Baywatch reboot is going to earn its R-rating.
Paramount dropped this most recent Baywatch trailer today, which could very well be the last trailer we see before Baywatch hits theaters this May. In the video, we can see the entire cast really playing up the sex jokes and the ridiculous, at times unnecessary, action. It seems like this new take on the classic 90s series is going to be taking everything that Baywatch did and, in true Spinal Tap fashion, »
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, »
