People’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson delighted his millions of fans at the start of this year when he announced he would star in a Baywatch reboot.

Now whenever we think of Baywatch, we think gorgeous women, slow-motion running on the beach and big 80s hair. But although there’s certainly a few nods to the slow-mo running and cheesy music, this Baywatch looks like it’s going to be very different.

For one, it seems to be focussing on the female gaze just as much as the male.

Zac Efron has been enlisted in his usual ‘man candy’ role, flexing his guns and showing off his six pack. And we’re sure the masses (us included!) will be DELIGHTED by a topless Johnson.

Johnson has been busy promoting the boys on Instagram.

The trailer also features a bevy of Baywatch babes too.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s ex Kelly Rohrbach, Alexandra Daddario and Ilfenesh Hadera stun on the beach.

We’re not quite sure what’s going on in the plot quite yet (maybe we were too focussed on The Rock, this could be a problem) but it seems to be both poking fun and honouring the late TV show at the same time.

“We made the promise to deliver a movie that’s big, fun, sexy, action packed and raunchy as f*ck…” said Johnson.

We’re sold!
