Michael Bay’s “Pain and Gain” also comes in powder form, apparently. Check out the first poster for the Master of Explosions’ latest, the decidedly explosions-less (of course, I could be wrong) “Pain and Gain”, a true-crime movie about a pair of knucklehead bodybuilders in Florida who get caught up in an extortion ring and a kidnapping scheme that, predictably, goes terribly wrong.
You know what they call an extortion ring and kidnapping scheme that goes terribly right? I don’t know, either, because no one makes a movie about such silly things, my friend.
“Pain and Gain”, from what I can gather, is Bay’s attempt to prove that he can direct a movie that doesn’t involve $100 million dollar action sequences or gratuitous hot girls standing around. Oh, who are we kidding. There will probably be hot girls standing around in “Pain and Gain”, too.
The film stars Dwayne Johnson, Mark Wahlberg, Ed Harris, Rebel Wilson, Tony Shalhoub, Anthony Mackie, Rob Corddry, Tony Plana, Bar Paly, Ken Jeong, and is set to pump you up next April.
