Stars & Stripes Poster for Johnson & Wahlberg in Bay's 'Pain & Gain'
"This is a true story." While I quite liked that first poster with the big ass bottle of pills, they've gone for something a bit conventional to follow-up. Paramount has put out a second official poster on Yahoo (via ComingSoon) for Michael Bay's Pain & Gain, his next "small" film about a pair of bodybuilders in Florida who get caught up in an extortion ring and a kidnapping scheme that goes terribly wrong. The cast features badasses Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson playing the leads, and they're both featured on this in front of some massive stars and stripes. We have yet to see any trailer, but I expect there's one coming soon.
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.

So, The Rock is directed in a movie by the director of The Rock? Surreal.

Mark Wahlberg is either photoshopped or he doesn't work out his chest or traps at all...

This poster is actually pretty great. Yes, Bay is an auteur and I'm looking forward to a smaller budget film. Plus it helps The Rock is in this 🙂
