Baywatch film cast go for a slow-motion beach jog in new set photo

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has shared a new set photo for the Baywatch film. Aside from showing off the principal cast in their iconic beach run, it also kind of looks like one of those Evolution of Man posters - if mankind evolved from bikini beach girl to curly haired polo shirt guy, taking a brief detour during the beefcake era.

Johnson was very upfront about the inspiration for this photo in his Facebook post.

The TV drama series adaptation has been in the works for a while, but it looks like it's finally coming together. Or at least the slow-motion running scenes are, and we all know that's the most important part.

Baywatch is directed by Seth Gordon, and it stars Dwayne Johnson, Alexandra Daddario, and Zac Efron. It's slated to hit theaters on May 19, 2017.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
