Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson are plenty busy these days, but their schedules opened up a little bit now that Baywatch filming officially wrapped on Thursday. (Hopefully, that means the first trailer can't be too far behind.)

Johnson and Efron finished things after a shoot that included some epic muscle-building contests, beautiful ladies, and a fantastic fall by Efron.

The R-rated film is going to mix action, comedy, and some big dudes as “two unlikely prospective lifeguards vie for jobs alongside the buff bodies who patrol a beach in California.” Kelly Rohrbach, Ilfenesh Hadera, Alexandra Daddario, and Jon Bass co-star, along with Quantico star Priyanka Chopra, who will be portraying the "villain" of the film.

Johnson and Efron have been working out like crazy to get in shape for the film, including with tire flipping exercises, pull-up contests, and leg workouts that have The Rock looking massive. 

The stars are done on the beach and heading home—but not before everyone went crazy with the photos in the hair and makeup trailer. (Except Efron's apparently, which may explain why he wanted to post it on his Instagram.)
