Watch: Michael Bay's 'Pain & Gain' First Trailer Has Two Explosions
After a couple cool posters with the muscles of Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson, the first trailer for Michael Bay's lower budget action thriller Pain & Gain has arrived. It definitely looks just like one of Bay's films with the sweeping camera shots and hot color palettes, but there's significantly less explosions. There's still plenty of super models, and a tone that feels like dimwitted, muscular Bad Boys doing a heist, so it's not something completely different for Bay, but it doesn't look half bad. Wahlberg and Johnson seem to make a great team, and Anthony Mackie is thrown in the mix too with Ed Harris in pursuit. Watch!
Here's the first trailer for Michael Bay's Pain & Gain originally from Yahoo:
Pain & Gain is directed by the one-and-only Michael Bay (Bad Boys I & II, The Rock, Armageddon, The Island, Transformers) from a script co-written by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely (Chronicles of Narnia, Captain America) and Scott Rosenberg (Con Air, High Fidelity, "Life on Mars"). The original idea was based on an Miami New Times article by Pete Collins. Bay filmed Pain & Gain down in Miami, Florida earlier this year. The cast also includes Rebel Wilson, Ed Harris, Anthony Mackie, Rob Corddry, Ken Jeong, Tony Shalhoub and Kurt Angle. Paramount will be releasing Pain & Gain starting April 26th next spring.
