Paramount Pictures has released its first still of the Baywatch movie through Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's Instagram page.

We've already been treated to Zac Efron's abs, David Hasselhoff in those red swimming trunks and some playful background shots but we haven't seen a full cast photo until Johnson uploaded an image to Instagram on Wednesday night.

According to the actor it's the is the first look at the main Baywatch squad.

Are we bad ass? Yes. Do we save lives? All day," he wrote online. "Are we a dysfunctional family? Epically. Do we have fun? F**K YES."

He added, "We work hard, we play hard. @thejonbass @alexannadaddario @kellyrohrbach @ilfenator @zacefron #BAYWATCH Get ready world... MAY 19, 2017."

What can we expect when the movie hits cinemas in May?

Directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses, Identity Thief), the new film stars Johnson alongside Zac Efron (Dirty Grandpa), Alexandra Daddario (San Andreas), Kelly Rohrbach (Cafe Society), Ilfenesh Hadera (Billions) and Jon Bass (Big Time in Hollywood, FL).
