Mark Wahlberg believes in the American dream, but it's a little different than yours. Unless, of course, your dream is to get Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson to help you steal a whole bunch of cash from a dirty businessman, while still finding time to pump some iron in the process.
Check out a bulky-looking Wahlberg playing an unfulfilled gym rat that convinces a couple of bodybuilder buddies (Johnson and Anthony Mackie) to drop their dumbbells and join him on his half-baked, get-rich-quick scheme involving the extortion and abduction of a crooked tycoon in the first TV spot for the off-kilter action comedy "Pain & Gain." Considering the film is set in Miami and comes from action directing guru Michael Bay, you can expect the 30-second spot to have plenty of chases, explosions, bikinis, and muscle.
Based on a true story that took place in the 90s, "Pain & Gain" co-stars Tony Shalhoub, Ed Harris, Rebel Wilson and Kurt Angle. It's set to open nationwide 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.
