If you’re anything like us, you’re getting pretty excited for Michael Bay’s Pain & Gain. It looks like Bay is finally getting back to the fun movies we want to see him make (and staying away from Shia Labeouf in the process). The film explodes its way into theaters in a couple weeks, and to help tide you over until then, a bunch of new still from the film have hit the web.
A lot of these new images are simply stills from the trailers, so there isn’t anything revolutionary new or revealing, but we do get to see a jacked Mark Wahlberg, an insanely buff Dwayne Johnson, and a lot of scantily clad, beautiful women, so I’m okay with the fact we’ve seen most of this stuff already.
Pain & Gain looks better and better with each bit of promotion that’s released. I included the film on my list of 5 must-see movies in April, and it looks like it could be the best film of the Spring that isn’t terrifying, depressing, or intensely dramatic.
For those who aren’t familiar with the project, the film tells the story of 3 bodybuilders (Wahlberg, Johnson, and Anthony Mackie) who, in pursuit of the American dream, get caught up in a criminal enterprise that goes horrible wrong. It’s based on a true story as chronicled by journalist Pete Collins, but just how loosely it’s based is still yet to be determined.
Starring alongside Wahlberg, Johnson, and Mackie are Rob Corddry, Ed Harris, Rebel Wilson, Ken Jeong, Tony Shaloub, Michael Rispoli, and Bar Paly.
Pain & Gain hits the big screen April 26th. Get pumped.
