PAIN AND GAIN trailer starring Mark Wahlberg and The Rock

Paramount has released the first trailer for Michael Bay‘s Pain and Gain.  Based on a true story, the film stars Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson as two bodybuilders who get caught up in an extortion ring and kidnapping scheme that goes terribly wrong.  Wahlberg and Johnson are a buddy dream team for me, and both of them look bigger and better than ever (shouldn’t be too hard to get my wife to see this one).  Though the film was made on a budget of $22 million, Bay’s visual style is unmistakable and there’s a strong Bad Boys vibe that permeates throughout the trailer; the description of the film as “small-scale” is only applicable when you’re taking about Michael Bay.

Anthony Mackie, Rob Corddry, Ed Harris, John Turturro, and Rebel Wilson co-star.  Pain and Gain opens April 26, 2013.


What do you think?  Looks pretty awesome to me.
