May 30 (UPI) — Zac Efron‘s grandparents were among those to catch the “Baywatch” reboot over the weekend.
The 29-year-old actor dedicated a sweet post to his relatives Saturday on Instagram after they saw the new film at a theater in Bend, Ore.
“This just makes everything even more awesome. Love you grandma and grandpa. I love you guys! Can’t wait to talk to u after the movie,” he captioned a photo of his grandparents standing next to a “Baywatch” poster.
Efron’s grandparents had visited the same theater in August 2015 to see his film “We Are Your Friends.”
“Shout out to Grandma and grandpa. First ones in line, opening night. Love you,” the actor wrote on Facebook at the time.”Baywatch,” starring Efron, Dwayne Johnson and Priyanka Chopra, opened in theaters Thursday. The movie received largely negative reviews and finished third at the box office — behind “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” and “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” — with $18.1 million.
“Oh boy, critics had their venom & knives ready. Fans LOVE the movie. Huge positive scores. Big disconnect w/ critics & people. #Baywatch,” Johnson tweeted in response.
Efron will next star in “The Greatest Showman” with Hugh Jackman.
