Baywatch stars Priyanka Chopra, Zac Efron, Dwayne Johnson impress at CinemaCon
The Baywatch footage unveiled at CinemaCon had the audience in hoots
Her blink-and-miss appearances in the Baywatch trailers so far have led to some disappointed murmurs among fans, but at CinemaCon, Priyanka Chopra did manage to make quite an impression with the special footage unveiled for the audience there.
CinemaCon, which is being held in Las Vegas over 27-30 March for journalists and theatre owners/exhibitors, saw the Baywatch team touch down for their presentation. Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Zac Efron and Priyanka Chopra were all present for the event, where an extended trailer of Baywatch was screened.
The team called it the "FU" trailer ("F****** Unbelievable") and from the reactions to it that poured in on Twitter, it seems Priyanka's badass avatar as Victoria Leeds — she apparently shoots off the F word and has some gun toting action sequences in the CinemaCon footage — was among the highlights.

“I was one of those dinosaurs who was so loyal to movies and cinema,” Farahani says. “I never took any proposition seriously because it was a bit like I wanted to keep cinema alive.”
To see a couple of privileged folk, frantically trying to scramble their way to safety, their faces whiter than their original white after what they have just seen. It is oddly satisfying to see how it ends for them, because I know it will.
