- Baywatch clashed with Wonder Woman at the box office
Meanwhile, Baywatch clashed with Hollywood's much-awaited superhero movie Wonder Woman, which currently dominates the US box office. Baywatch ranks at #5 with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 taking up the fourth place. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is the third movie in line while Captain Underpants has secured the second spot.
Priyanka Chopra plays "bombshell of a villain" Victoria Leeds in Baywatch. Here's what Raja Sen has to say in his review for NDTV: "The villain of the piece is Priyanka Chopra, vamping it up and having fun swearing like a sailor. Playing an attractive drug-dealer, she cannily uses this film to deliver a barely-disguised showreel to studios in need of a baddie. "I'm not a Bond villain," she even says, perhaps prophetically, in as many words, 'Yet'."
Baywatch also stars Dwayne The Rock Johnson, Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach and Ilfnesh Hadera and has cameos by Baywatch originals Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff.
