Are you one of the 10 people out there excited for this Baywatch film? If so, you’re going to have to wait an extra week to see the movie. The Seth Gordon-directed adaption of the oddly popular 1990s TV show was scheduled to be released May 19, 2017.
But it’s now been pushed back to May 26, Memorial Day weekend. The move is most likely due to the fact that the weekend of the 19th is filled with new releases. Annabelle 2, Alien Covenant, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul, and The Nut Job 2 will all be released that weekend.
On Memorial Day weekend, it’ll just be Baywatch and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. That should be an interesting battle. The move is smart. Pirates of the Caribbean will be a tough opponent, but it’s better than facing off against four other films.
In addition to the release date change, we also know the first trailer for the movie will drop this week. No word on how long it might be, but we’re expecting a full trailer because it’ll also be playing inside theaters.
Baywatch is rated R. As mentioned above Seth Gordon directed the film and Dwayne Johnson stars. You’ll also find Zac Efron, Kelly Rohrbach, Priyanka Chopra and Alexandra Daddario.
