"Pain & Gain" may not have the same techno wizardry as the Transformers movies, but this just-released trailer for Michael Bay's latest action-comedy has at least two things going for it: Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Mark "Funky Bunch" Wahlberg. And what it lacks in large robots, it more than makes up for in large muscle. Take a look for yourself.
Based on a true story, this darkly told crime yarn has Johnson and Wahlberg playing a couple of beefy Miami bodybuilders who get mixed up in a kidnapping and extortion scheme which eventually turns out to be the biggest mistake of their lives. The movie, which also features appearances by Anthony Mackie, Ed Harris, and Tony Shalhoub, is slated to open in theaters on April 26th.
Based on the unbelievable true story of three personal trainers in 1990s Miami who, in pursuit of the American Dream, get caught up in a criminal enterprise that goes horribly wrong. From acclaimed director Michael Bay, the film is based on the magazine articles by Pete Collins.
