Clearly, it's a risky proposition adapting a cheesy vintage TV series for the big screen: this is the second one that's gone awry this year, after CHiPs. But it doesn't have to be like this. Lively movie versions of Charlie's Angels and 21 Jump Street proved that with inventive writing, snarky performances and deranged energy, the result can be thoroughly entertaining. Sadly, this movie falls back on cheap jokes that simply aren't that funny. Fans of Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron will still have a good time - they're both unstoppably engaging - but the truth is that this simply isn't good enough.
We're back in Emerald Bay, where the beefy hotshot Mitch (Johnson) heads up the lifeguard crew with babes Stephanie and CJ (Ildenesh Hadera and Kelly Rohrbach). And now they're training up three new recruits: fallen Olympic swimming champ Matt (Efron), feisty hottie Summer (Alexandra Daddario) and pudgy geek Ronnie (Jon Bass). Meanwhile, as various crimes and calamities strike the beach, Mitch decides to investigate everything himself without the help of the local police. And as he becomes convinced that resort owner Victoria (Priyanka Chopra) is involved in bribery, extortion, drug running and murder, he sends his lifeguards undercover to catch her. Which of course is just a bit beyond what they were trained to do.

Producer Beau Flynn says they are bringing back 'Baywatch' writers for a sequel.
'Baywatch' might have received quite the beating from film critics and audiences alike, but that hasn't stopped the production team from mapping out a whole new story for a sequel already. The entire cast is expected to return, though there's not word yet on whether director Seth Gordon will be involved again.
Dwayne Johnson at 'Baywatch' premiere
According to one producer, they've already brought back the screenwriters from the first movie and are quite sure they'll be able to get the cast back on board too, who include Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach and Priyanka Chopra.

'Baywatch' stars some seriously amazing women.
Let's be honest; 'Baywatch' wouldn't be 'Baywatch' without the eye-candy and the new movie is no exception. Not only does it have Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron in lead roles, there's also some of Hollywood's most beautiful women including Alexandra Daddario and Kelly Rohrbach.
The cast of 'Baywatch'
Rohrbach plays this generation's Pamela Anderson (or C.J. Parker), with the real Pamela playing her mother. Alexandra is the super sporty and brainy Summer Quinn while the sensational Priyanka Chopra plays the 'deliciously evil' (her words, not ours) Victoria Leeds.

Johnson revealed in a new interview for GQ that he has ambitions to run for political office one day.
In an era when total political outsiders can take the highest office in the land, many have reasoned that if Donald Trump can become president of the United States, why can’t somebody genuinely popular do the same, like Dwayne Johnson?
The 45 year old Fast and Furious star, nicknamed ‘The Rock’, stayed schtum when asked who he would be endorsing in last year’s presidential election, and The Washington Post suggested that he could be a considerable force if he ever decided to switch careers and run for political office.
Now, the actor has opened up in a new interview with GQ magazine that he does indeed have political aspirations, saying that a White House run was “a real possibility”.

There is no better lifeguard team out there than that of Los Angeles' Baywatch. However, they are seriously losing money and in order to boost their brand, a PR executive encourages them to get some fresh blood on the team. Matt Brody may have landed two gold medals in the field, but that doesn't guarantee he'll be right for the squad. He's far from an impressive addition in the eyes of Mitch Buchanan; he may be prettier, but he hasn't got the brains or the brawn to match up to him. Matt thinks the job is just about educating people on sunburn and stopping them from drowning, but when it becomes clear that there's a drug ring in the area and a body subsequently washes up on the beach, their job gets a whole lot more complicated. Yeah, they should probably leave it to the police, but instead they decide on an unauthorised undercover sting operation instead. Maybe thrill-seeking Matt can teach Mitch and the team a thing or two about living life on the edge. Or maybe he'll just run like hell.

The film will be based on the retro video game of the same name.
Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is one of the hottest properties in the world of Hollywood today. Recently starring in 'The Fate of the Furious', aka 'Fast & Furious 8', and leading the upcoming 'Baywatch' big screen release alongside Zac Efron, he's had one of the busiest work schedules as of late, which shows no signs of slowing down.
Dwayne Johnson is heading up the upcoming movie
One of his upcoming projects for example is a live action adaptation of the retro video game 'Rampage', which saw huge monsters such as a rat and a gorilla stomping through cities, destroying everything in their path without much of an explanation as to why. It sounds awful and, to be fair, the game wasn't anything special, but Johnson will be bringing the game to the big screen in any case.

'Fast and Furious' co-stars Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson are friends again after on-set conflict.
All sorts of stories have been circling regarding the tense relationship between Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson on the set of 'The Fate of the Furious', and now it seems the cause of that co-called feud has finally been revealed. It was all a battle of masculinity.
Vin Diesel at 'The Fate of the Furious' premiere
Following Dwayne's indirect accusation of Vin Diesel being a 'candy ass' last year, it seems everything is okay between the two men now. In fact, it seems their fall-out was little more than a battle of egos according to a new report.
Dwayne Johnson loves his 'The Fate of the Furious' catchphrases.
Dwayne Johnson has always loved a catchphrase, from his professional wrestling career as The Rock and now as Hobbs in the 'Fast and Furious' franchise. According to him, 'The Fate of the Furious' is just as chock full of memorable one liners that he just can't get enough of.
Dwayne Johnson stars in 'The Fate of the Furious'
Hobbs is more wired up than ever in the eighth installment of the franchise as he sets out to take down a rogue Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) who appears to have abandoned his family for a seductive villainess named Cipher (Charlize Theron) who is hell bent on destruction.
Continue reading: Hobbs One Liners Are A Career Highlight For Dwayne Johnson
Dominic Toretto has gone rogue. It seemed like the game was finally up with Brian and Mia retiring from their fast and furious lifestyles, and Dom and Letty swapping that life for marriage, but as it turns out things are not that simple. Dom has apparently sold out his family and friends to embark on another dangerous adventure. He seems to have been lured into action again by a very beautiful but extremely dangerous individual named Cipher. She has some seriously advanced technology at her disposal that she wants to use to execute her plan to take control of every motor vehicle in the city and cause some serious mass destruction. But Letty refuses to lose faith in him because she's sure there must be something more going on, though she doesn't know what yet. She re-teams with Tej Parker and Hobbs and this time they got a tank. Unfortunately for Hobbs, the only way they can take on Dom and his new girlfriend is by enlisting the help of his criminal nemesis Deckard Shaw.
The feud that apparently started between Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson isn't over yet!
The reported on-set tensions between Furious 8 stars Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Vin Diesel seem to be continuing throughout the movie’s press tour, with new reports suggesting that the studio is having to keep them apart.
When Diesel was promoting the new film at CinemaCon this week, Johnson’s absence was noted upon, particularly as he was also at the convention on Tuesday promoting his other new movies, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Baywatch.
“They're keeping them separated as much as possible,” an insider told The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday (March 30th), intimating that the feud that started last year was still ongoing.
Priyanka Chopra has vowed to stay in touch with her 'Baywatch' co-stars because she had a bundle of laughs shooting scenes with Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson.
Priyanka Chopra has vowed to stay in touch with her 'Baywatch' co-stars.
The 34-year-old actress plays the role of Victoria Leeds in action comedy, and the star had so much fun working with fellow actors Zac Efron and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson she wants to continue their friendship even now filming has finished.
Speaking about the cast of the upcoming movie, which is set to be released in May this year, the brunette beauty said: ''It's a really funny movie - I was laughing all the time while I filmed it. Dwayne Johnson is such a gentleman and one of the nicest people I've met. He's so hard working - Zac Efron is too. It was a lot of hours in the sun and water, and wonderful to see such a professional bunch of people have a great time.

The film marks his first role voicing an animation.
After conquering movie genres from action to comedy, Dwayne Johnson is finally getting around to voicing an animated character in Disney's new hit Moana. And what he liked about this film is the way it avoids the usual stereotypes of your average animated Disney movie.
Dwayne Johnson plays Maui in 'Moana'
"There is no love interest. And there's no damsel in distress character in here. She represents so many 15, 16-year-old girls out there," he says of the title character, who reminds him of his own 15-year-old daughter. "She's ambitious and has a really strong point of view. She wants to tackle the world. She loves tapping into her own identity and putting me in my place!"

The first publicity shots of the 2017 follow-up to 'Jumanji' showed Gillan dressed in what she called "child sized clothes" - but said that all would become clear.
Former ‘Doctor Who’ star Karen Gillan has replied to criticisms that the first promotional shots from the new Jumanji movie are sexist because of the (extremely) tight clothes she’s wearing.
The new movie, which has been in production for the last four years, is intended as a sequel to the 1995 family favourite movie of the same name. Its release is currently set for July 28th, 2017 and work on the project has accelerated considerably in the last few months.

Dwayne Johnson has announced that he’s cast former ‘Doctor Who’ star Karen Gillan in the upcoming Jumanji movie. Gillan joins the cast alongside Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart and Nick Jonas, in what’s been described as a ‘continuation’ of the original 1995 film.

Here's a snippet of what to expect in the near (and not so near) future.
Walt Disney Pictures have been having a field day with the amount of fairytale re-makes and endless sequels being released and announced recently. No doubt one of the most prestigious film companies in Hollywood, being nearly 100 years old, the unit and its studio parent Walt Disney Studios are responsible for some of the greatest classics ever produced - but what can we expect on our screens in the next 5 or so years?
The Jungle Book is set for release next year
Everyone's excited to see Emma Watson and Dan Stevens in the 2017 live action re-make of 'Beauty and the Beast', and we've already received a teaser for Jon Favreau's 'The Jungle Book' starring Scarlett Johansson, Idris Elba and Bill Murray. But did you know Disney are also re-launching the likes of 'Mary Poppins', 'Winnie The Pooh', and 'Pinocchio' with a script from Peter Hedges? As for sequels, 'Toy Story 4' is a no-brainer, and 'The Incredibles 2' and 'Frozen 2' already have a buzz about them, but what about 'Wreck-It Ralph 2', 'National Treasure 3' and 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales'?
14-year-old Auli'i Cravalho from Oahu, Hawaii opens up about being cast in her first ever acting role as the voice of Moana in the upcoming animated Disney film of the same name, which has been directed by Ron Clements and John Musker and co-stars Dwayne Johnson. The movie depicts a young explorer on her way to a mysterious island with her friend, the demi-god Maui.

Dwayne Johnson A.K.A. The Rock is officially a hero after rescuing one of his puppies from drowning over the Labor Day weekend.
Dwayne Johnson proved he’s as much a hero off-screen as he is in the movies. The 43-year-old American actor shared a picture of himself teaching his two new French Bulldog puppies, Brutus and Hobbs, to swim after one of them nearly drowned.

Johnson has just added another movie to his packed shooting schedule which also includes ‘Baywatch’ and ‘Rampage’.

The former teen star and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson will star in the big screen version
Who doesn’t like 1990s Baywatch complete with Pamela Anderson’s audacious curves and David Hasselhoff’s oddly attractive chest? Well it seems that Zac Efron may not with the actor, who is involved with a film reboot of the franchise, explaining that the new venture will be nothing like its predecessor.

The Rock clipped somebody's wing mirror on the way to the set of his new movie 'Central Intelligence' back in May, but he managed to charm his way out of it.
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson was fortunate to get away pretty lightly when he hit another car a few weeks ago after the owner of the other vehicle refused to accept payment – because he was a huge fan of the actor!
The Furious 7 and San Andreas star took to Instagram on Monday (June 16th) to tell followers about the fender bender, in which the rock clipped the parked car’s wing mirror with his truck. “Here's a fun story to start your week off...” he writes. “I'm driving to set in my pick-up truck - music blasting - I'm singing away like I'm having a one man party in my truck - then I hear a loud BANG.”
'Jurassic World' has knocked it out of the park, passing the $200million mark in its opening weekend in America.
We all knew it would be big. Bring back the Jurassic Park franchise after a gap of 14 years, add Chris Pratt and a fearsome new dinosaur into the mix, and push the Steven Spielberg connection (albeit as executive producer), and Universal has undoubtedly got a hit on its hands.
Chris Pratt: now one of Hollywood's most bankable stars
But it's not until after Jurassic World's opening weekend that anyone knew quite how big it would be. The film has debuted in the US with a whopping $204.6million, doubling the studio's original weekend estimate, Box Office Mojo reports.

The long-awaited fourth film in the 'Jurassic Park' franchise is smashing expectations at the US box office.
Dinosaurs ruled the earth 65 million years ago, and now they're ruling the box office, with Jurassic World making an estimated $82.8million in America by the end of Friday.

Outperforming most analysts' predictions, the film has scored the third-best Friday opening on record, according to Box Office Mojo, placing it behind only Avengers: Age of Ultron ($84.4m) and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 ($91m).

The star-studded special was announced during Saturday night’s Spike TV Guy’s Choice Awards.
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson had a very special announcement during Saturday night’s Guy’s Choice Awards on Spike TV, as the action star unveiled his latest project, a star packed variety show titled 'Rock the Troops'. The show, which will air on Veteran’s Day next year, will entertain and support U.S. troops stationed overseas and will be filmed on location at a military base to be announced soon.
Dwayne Johnson will be rocking the troops next Veteran’s Day.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly backstage at the awards Johnson explained, “It is so important to me to give back to the troops. I really want to create something special for our boys and girls who are overseas and hopefully we do such a good job that we can do it again and again. I have military in my family, some vets and two Navy SEALs. That was the genesis of that.”
Horror takes on comedy in cinemas this weekend, but there's no clear winner based on Friday's estimates.
As ticket sales for Dwayne Johnson's San Andreas cool off a little, two very different films are vying for the number-one spot this week: the third (but probably not the last) instalment of the Insidious horror series, and Melissa McCarthy's crime comedy Spy. And they're neck and neck after one day in cinemas according to Box Office Mojo - Insidious has made $10.4million, while Spy is slightly behind with $10.25m.
Lin Shaye (the one on the right)
The directorial debut of actor-writer Leigh Whannell, Insidious: Chapter 3 has received a warmer critical reception than many people expected, but its opening-day haul is roughly half what the second film in the series made in its first 24 hours, meaning it will likely end the weekend with a considerably lower total than Chapter 2's $40.3m.

The ‘San Andreas’ star is said to be in talks to take on Kurt Russell’s 1986 role.
After dominating the box office at the weekend with San Andreas, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is already eyeing his next big screen role which looks set to be in a remake of 80s cult classic, Big Trouble in Little China.
Johnson is currently riding high at the box office with San Andreas.
According to The Wrap, Johnson is already in talks to star in and produce the remake, which will be scripted by X-Men: First Class writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz. The film will be produced by 20th Century Fox, who are yet to comment on the rumours.
Dwayne Johnson has done it again at the box-office.
The earthquake disaster movie San Andreas has stormed the U.S box office, taking $53.2 million to further establish Dwayne Johnson as one of the most bankable stars in Hollywood. San Andreas knocked last week's number-one, Tomorrowland, into third place, with Pitch Perfect 2 in second.
San Andreas is now Dwayne Johnson's biggest non-sequel debut at the box-office
San Andreas' success allayed fears that audiences in quake-prone regions would actively avoid the film.

Let The Rock teach you a thing or two about earthquakes.
This year’s recipe for a successful movie really has only one ingredient: The Rock. I don’t know when a former WWE wrestler-turned-comic-relief-go-to became The Guy to call for a blockbuster project, but it is what it is. Case in point: San Andreas, which scored an easy victory at the box office this weekend.
The Rock is here to save everyone (well, a couple of people anyway.)
With $53,2 million in domestic earnings, the earthquake disaster flick brought the thunder (or the shake, if you will) to the box office over the last weekend of May. According to Forbes, the movie went above and beyond early tracking predictions.
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson will certainly be this weekend’s box office champ after Bradley Cooper’s ‘Aloha’ bombs.
After taking a massive $18.2 million on Friday, including $3.1m after Thursday previews, earthquake disaster movie San Andreas, starring Dwayne Johnson, looks on course to take $48 million this weekend. The disaster flick is way ahead of Bradley Cooper rom-con Aloha which also opened this weekend and suffered dismal reviews from the critics.
Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson stars in disaster flick San Andreas.
According to Forbes, San Andreas crushed the competition on Friday and is now on course for a weekend debut as high as $48 million, with audiences giving the movie a resounding thumbs up. It seems US audiences can’t help but be enthralled by the idea of The Rock taking on an earthquake and the box office receipts will speak for themselves.
