Who would have ever imagined that a Baywatch movie would become one of the most anticpated blockbusters of 2017? And yet, between the the R-rating, the power of Dwayne Johnson‘s charisma, Zac Efron‘s abs, and a bevy of ridiculously attractive castmembers, the unlikely film adaptation has managed to stand out among the host of superhero and space movies on the horizon as a promising unknown.
Directed by Seth Gordon of Horrible Bosses, Baywatch tells of Johnson’s by-the-books lifeguard Mitch, who has to team up with Efron’s Matt in order to stop an oil tychoon from destroying their beach. Baywatch also stars Alexandra Daddario (San Andreas) as Summer, model Kelly Rohrbach as C.J. Parker (originally played by Pamela Anderson), and Billions actress Ilfenesh Hadera as Mitch’s love interest, Stephanie Holden. Quantico star Priyanka Chopra plays the villain, with Jack Kesy (The Strain) and Amin Joseph (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) in unspecified roles. And, bonus, the OG Mitch David Hasselhoff will definitely be donning the red swim trunks for an appearance.
Lucky for Paramount, their cast isn’t just crazy hot, they’re crazy active on social media and have been racking up early fanfare with a steady stream of behind-the-scenes looks. Today, Daddario brings a look at the gorgeous gals patrolling the bay. Check it out below, and scroll through for more recent on-set images.

Our goal with #BAYWATCH is to bring y’all a big, fun, raunchy Rated R action comedy. But, we also go hard core with our action rescues (this kid fell off a pier in extremely rough waves) and pay respect to ocean lifeguards worldwide who are truly the first responders of the beach. As fun and wild as our movie is, it’s been a real eye opening experience for me playing this role. Respect. #HardCoreRescues #50DegreeWater #ShotThisSceneForHours #ThisKidAintLight #QuadsTookABeating #WhoElseNeedsSaving? #IWillPerformMouthToMouth #OnWomenOnly #BAYWATCH MAY 19th 2017
