Baywatch new trailer: Priyanka Chopra is stunning as Victoria Leeds

While the first just gave us a split second Priyanka Chopra strut, the Quantico star looks stunning as Victoria Leeds (yes, that’s her name) in the latest promo of Baywatch. She even makes for a convincing villain,confidently pointing a gun at the formidable Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock. After all, you don’t always have to be the hero.

We have waited 16 long years to see lifeguards running in slow-motion again. The new trailer for Baywatch starring Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra released late Monday and it will quench your curiosity.

While the first just gave us a split second Pee Cee strut, the Quantico star looks stunning as Victoria Leeds (yes, that’s her name). She even makes for a convincing villain, confidently pointing a gun at the formidable Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock. After all, you don’t always have to be the hero.

Even with Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron -- who has surely left his High School Musical years behind him -- engaging in their friendly banter, the comic timing seems a little off and the plot a little too obvious.

May be that’s why we’re glad there’s some self-directed humour too as Zac Efron casually says: “Everything you guys are talking about sounds like a really entertaining but far-fetched TV show.”

Baywatch opens on May 26. Directed by Horrible Bosses’ Seth Gordon, Baywatch also stars Alexandra Daddario, Ilfenesh Hadera, Kelly Rohrbach and others. If you’ve been living under a rock till now, Baywatch was once the most watched American TV series on NBC. For more information, just watch a video.
