The infamously popular TV series Baywatch is a natural fit for today’s mainstream movie culture, given its high level of name recognition and basic viewer pleasures: Lifeguards running through the sand in slow motion. So it should come as no surprise that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and a bevy of beautiful Baywatchers can now be seen in a teaser for an upcoming big screen reboot.

The new Baywatch teaser splits the difference between spoof and straight-up action blockbuster, also teasing a buddy lifeguard dynamic between Johnson and co-star Zac Efron. And it’s a red-band teaser, so they can say words that you never heard on the original series, like “balls,” “shit,” and “slow motion.”

You can check out the teaser for Baywatch 2K17 below. The movie hits theaters on Memorial Day weekend next year, and in the meantime you can take a look at its official site right here.
