A new Baywatch clip featuring Priyanka Chopra gives us our best look at her villainous character Victoria Leeds.
The 24-second clip introduces Victoria, who is said to be a real estate tycoon by day and drug kingpin by night. In an attempt to befriend Dwayne Johnson’s Matt Buchannon and his team of lifeguards, Victoria invites them to a party.
The invitation is laced with deviousness and condescension. “I know the club’s kinda ‘fancy’ and probably not your scene,” she says, “but you have a standing invitation.”
Then, she trips over her footstool (yes, she’s standing on a footstool, probably because she’s above everyone else, or maybe she just doesn’t want her Louboutins to get dirty), and falls into The Rock’s arms.
She also seems to be putting on a variation of the American accent she uses in her show Quantico.
At the film’s Miami premiere, Priyanka warned fans to not take their kids to the movie, because of its raunchy tone.
Baywatch is directed by Seth Gordon and also stars Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, Ilfenesh Hadera and Jon Bass. It is scheduled for a June 2 release.
