Baywatch is getting a fresh look thanks to its upcoming movie reboot, but luckily, we don’t have to wait till it hits theaters in 2017 to get an idea of what to expect. Star and producer Dwayne Johnson has made a habit of providing project updates on social media, and today he revealed the first photo of the Baywatch movie cast.

The photo features Johnson and co-stars Zac Efron (Neighbors, Dirty Grandpa), Alexandra Daddario (San Andreas), model-slash-actress Kelly Rohrbach, Ilfenesh Hadera (HBO’s Show Me a Hero), and Jon Bass (Big Time in Hollywood, FL). As you’d expect, the group is shown strutting around the beach in their lifeguard garb. Their uniforms have gotten an update, though; while the series’ iconic red is incorporated into their swimwear, there’s a lot more blue than we remember seeing before.

Johnson showed off the group on social media, including an Instagram post highlighting how “bad ass” they are.

There’s a lot going on in the photo, but it seems like Johnson is being genuine when he says that they have fun together, “dysfunctional family” that they are. We’re definitely curious to see how the flick compares to the series, which starred David Hasselhoff, Pamela Anderson, Nicole Eggert, and more.

The Baywatch movie is being directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) and is slated to open on May 19, 2017.

10 best revenge movies of all time, ranked
Uma Thurman as The Bride wielding her katana in Kill Bill Vol. 1.

Brutal, satisfying, or even disturbing stories of revenge are a common thread among some of the most entertaining action and thriller movies ever made. The best among them are riveting tales of vengeance, featuring characters fueled by a singular desire: to right the wrongs inflicted upon them. Driven by this all-consuming thirst for payback, they embark on dangerous journeys and stop at nothing in their quest for retaliation.

From the over-the-top Kill Bill to the stylish John Wick, these great revenge movies offer gripping narratives and cathartic satisfaction, often with a side of intense action. Expect to meet protagonists driven by their pursuit of justice, even if their poetic retribution means more pain and violence for anyone in their way.

If you have to watch one Netflix show this April, stream this one
A man stands close to a woman in Black Sails.

The best thing about Netflix is that there's almost never a shortage of new things to watch. In the first half of April, we've already seen the premiere of prominent original series including Ripley, Parasyte: The Grey, and Good Times, as well as the arrival of Sex and the City on loan from HBO and Max. But if you have to watch only one Netflix show this April, then the one you can't miss is Black Sails.

In 2014, Starz launched Black Sails as an original series in the vein of Spartacus, as well as the short-lived Camelot. This was also a post-Game of Thrones TV landscape, and Starz wanted to make a splash of its own. Since HBO had a such death grip on the fantasy genre, Starz went ahead with a show that's both a historical epic and also a prequel to Robert Louis Stevenson's classic adventure novel Treasure Island. Even if you've never read Stevenson's book, almost everyone has heard of its most iconic character, Long John Silver. And while hedoes play a large role in Black Sails, the primary focus is on a lesser-known character from Treasure Island: Captain James Flint.
