While one could argue that Hollywood is a bit overly-obsessed with prequels, sequels, and reboots, one has to appreciate some of the liberal uses of some of the licenses they picked up. Perhaps the most interesting one in recent memory came in the form of the 21 Jump Street films, which was only Jump Street in name.

The producers of Baywatch have gone and taken that very same approach and applied it to Baywatch. In no way does this movie look like ’90s show on which it is based (for the better), but it certainly looks like a lot of fun.

Take a look at the Baywatch spot down below!

The synopsis of Baywatch is as follows:

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

Joining Johnson and Efron are Alexandra Daddario, Priyanka Chopra, Jon Bass, Kelly Rohrbach, Ilfenesh Hadera, Hannibal Buress, David Hasselhoff, Belinda Peregrín, Izabel Goulart, Charlotte McKinney, and Pamela Anderson.

Baywatch hits theaters on May 26, 2017.
