LAS VEGAS: The cast of “Baywatch” took the CinemaCon stage Tuesday afternoon to preview the film for exhibitors and theater owners at the annual convention.
Star Dwayne Johnson told the audience of theater owners and exhibitors that their movie is going to be the craziest, funniest R-rated comedy of the summer. Johnson called their group the “avengers of the beach.” He also introduced new footage of the movie.
“Baywatch” also stars Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario and Priyanka Chopra. It hits theaters on May 26.
Chopra’s blink-and-miss appearances in the “Baywatch” trailers so far have led to some disappointment among fans, but at CinemaCon, the actress did manage to make quite an impression.
In a video shared by a fan, Chopra can be seen singing “I am not that innocent” with her co-stars Daddario and Kelly Rohrbach.
Baywatch has been adapted from the 1990s popular TV series of the same name.
Paramount Pictures in its presentation debuted the first trailer for Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Sequel,” which comes out July 28. The former vice president, who walked out to Nelly’s “Hot in Herre,” was on hand to introduce the ad, saying that he hopes the film “will be a tool for galvanizing action in our communities.”
Audiences also got an extended look at “Transformers: The Last Knight,” the fifth film in the franchise, which imagines that transformers fought alongside King Arthur. Mark Wahlberg stars alongside Anthony Hopkins and comedian Jerrod Carmichael in the film out June 23.
