Michael Bay has been wasting his talent making those god awful Transformers films for far too long. You can’t really blame the guy, because he’s been getting killer paychecks for essentially filming things getting blown up, often with half-naked hot women somehow worked into the scene.
But now Bay’s attempting to do something original and it stars Dwayne Johnson and Mark Wahlberg. Pain & Gain is based on a true story and it follows a pair of idiot bro bodybuilders as they attempt to kidnap Tony Shalhoub, hoping to get a big pay day. Anthony Mackie and Ed Harris also star.
This first trailer is excellent. It features trademark Bay visuals, while leaning a bit more towards the comedy world that Bay only touches up on in his Transformers film. This film has the potential to reach true greatness, of the likes that Bay has never seen. The trailer has that same underground humor that The Coen Brothers have been using for years and it looks like Bay has finally tapped into it.
Could Pain & Gain be the bro movie we’ve all been desperately searching for?
Check out the trailer below:
Pain & Gain opens on April 26th, 2013.
