"I watched a lot of movies Paul, I know what I'm doing."
Michael Bay has released the trailer for his Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson film Pain & Gain, and I have to say... this looks like it could be one of his best films. I thought this was a great trailer, and it looks like it's going to be an entertaining flick. It looks like it's got a solid mix of action and comedy, and Wahlberg and Johnson look like they make a great on-screen team.
The film is based on a true story and the two lead actors play a pair of Florida bodybuilders who get caught up in an extortion ring and a kidnapping scheme involving a wealthy businessman that goes terribly wrong.
From acclaimed director Michael Bay comes “Pain & Gain,” a new action comedy starring Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie. 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. Ed Harris, Tony Shalhoub, Rob Corddry, Rebel Wilson and Bar Paly also star. The film is based on magazine articles by Pete Collins, with a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely and produced by Donald DeLine, Michael Bay and Ian Bryce.
The movie also stars Anthony Mackie, Ed Harris, Rob Corddry, Tony Shalhoub, Bar Paly, Rebel Wilson, Ken Jeong and Yolanthe Cabau. Pain & Gain hits theaters April 26th, 2013, and I can actually say that I'm looking forward to a Michael Bay movie. Of course he managed to throw in an explosion though.
