Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Pain and Gain’ Leads a Slow Weekend

Paramount
Paramount

Some will call this a slow weekend, but it may be better to think of it as the calm before the storm. Next week, the summer movie season begins and people are saving their pennies for 'Iron Man 3,' so it's not really surprising that this was an uneventful couple of days at the multiplex. At least the folks behind 'Pain and Gain' can be glad that their film led an otherwise quiet weekend.

‘Pain and Gain’ Review

Pain and Gain review
Paramount Pictures

I watch a lot of 'Project Runway.' My wife likes it -- and, yeah, I like it too. A show dedicated to fashion design that features creative and powerful women is a weird thing to think about while watching a Michael Bay movie but that's exactly what I did during 'Pain and Gain.' Bay could learn a thing or two from that show about editing. Not in the cinematic, cutting shots together sense; that he's got. This is a different kind of editing.

It's the kind that is often called out by the 'Runway' judges when they tell the contestants (I'm paraphrasing), "This is too busy. You need to edit. That blue fuzzy hat that looks like a tribble distracts from the gorgeous, ornately sequined dress. The dress is enough. You don't need the tribble hat. Edit."

A Michael Bay movie -- particularly 'Pain & Gain' -- is a sequined dress with a blue tribble hat.

Michael Bay's 'Pain and Gain' has just released a red-band NSFW trailer, and it shows something we already knew about the film: It was going to be a bit brutal. It's been almost a year since we first saw a picture of Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson barbequing a hand, but that appears to be only one part of the demented goings on in the film, as evinced by this new trailer.

‘Pain and Gain’ TV Spot: Mark Wahlberg’s a Pretty Bad Criminal

Pain and Gain
Paramount

In what amounts to the smallest film in Michael Bay's oversized career, we can't wait to see his 'Pain and Gain' for so many reasons. For one, there's Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson paired together, for another we're curious to see what Michael Bay will do with the source material (which, if you haven't read the article it's based on, you should). This new TV spot plays up the goofiness, which is interesting.

New ‘Pain and Gain’ TV Spot: “This is a True Story”

Can Michael Bay make a comedy? Let's rephrase that: can he make an intentional comedy? That's the big question surrounding 'Pain and Gain,' the based-on-a-true-story bodybuilding crime movie starring Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson. Although we don't know if Bay is built for this kind of film, everything we've seen from this thing has looked incredibly slick. The newest TV spot is no exception.

'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.
