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.
There's a number of reasons to be excited for the making of and release of Brett Ratner's 'Hercules,' which will star Dwayne Johnson and looks to be a go project. Some reasons for being excited about this might be meaner than others, but regardless the news today is that the film has a release date: August 8, 2014.
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is a large and imposing man, a fact not lost on the marketing team behind his upcoming film 'Snitch.' Honestly, the poster for the film seems to be heavily inspired by the one sheet for Johnson's 'Faster,' which placed the former wrestler against a washed out background and relied on his sheer size and intense gaze to sell the film. Well, you stick with what works: the poster for 'Snitch' is all the proof we need that The Rock is capable of smashing puny mortal men with his little finger alone.
'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.
Before he shoots guys in 'Fast Six' or shoots guys in 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation,' Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will shoot guys in 'Snitch.' Based on a true story, 'Snitch' stars Johnson as a dad who goes undercover in the DEA to free his son who was imprisoned after a set up and you can check out the trailer now.
