‘Pain & Gain’ Trailer: Mark Wahlberg and The Rock Want to Pump You Up

Pain & Gain‘ – which stars Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson – already feels like no other Michael Bay movie before it. Sure it’s got the usual slick, lens-flared look, the girls in bikinis and dudes with guns but this movie feels more like a Coen Bros. movie on steroids. Check out the ‘Pain & Gain’ trailer below and you’ll see what we mean.

Based on the real-life story of three personal trainers in Miami who get caught up on a heist gone wrong, ‘Pain & Gain’ is something of a respite from the mega-budget blockbusters like ‘Transformers’ that Michael Bay has been directing the past few years. And we couldn’t be happier about it.

Bay’s style has becoming something of a source of derision for most movie fans over the past few years but there was a time when Bay was making some incredibly enjoyable action films (see: ‘The Rock’ and ‘Bad Boys’). This new trailer looks great (props to whoever thought to use “Kids” by Sleigh Bells – works perfectly in Bay’s universe) and delivers some classic lines like, “You know who invented salad? Poor people.” This movie looks like ‘Boogie Nights’ by way of ‘Raising Arizona’ via Michael Bay.

The movie hits theaters on April 26 and you can watch the new ‘Pain & Gain’ trailer below.
