After dominating the box office this past weekend with Michael Bay's 'Pain and Gain,' Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Mark Wahlberg are heading to the last place we expected to find them -- the small screen. The body-building duo will reunite for an upcoming HBO drama pilot about retired athletes in Miami, with Johnson set to star and Peter Berg attached to direct a script from 'Entourage' writer Stephen Levinson. But is there any chance HBO would pass on such a star-studded series?
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.
The ‘Pain and Gain’ promotional train has fully left the station: with the release of a new poster and a batch of images just the other day and now a couple of clips to get you pumped (pun intended) for the Michael Bay flick. Check out Rebel Wilson playing doctor with Anthony Mackie, and an unsuccessful kidnapping attempt after the break!
Flexing its way into theaters in a few weeks is Michael Bay's 'Pain and Gain,' an action-comedy about meatheads whose dreams are significantly bigger than their brains. A new poster for the film has appeared online accompanied by a slew of pics, and of course it's dominated by Dwayne Johnson's pecs. How could it not be?
Do you like Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg cracking jokes with each other while watching them shoot things and blow stuff up? Well then, you're probably gonna love '2 Guns.'
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.
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.
'Transformers 4' - the sorta sequel/reboot to the mega-franchise - is gearing up to shoot in Michigan this spring with Mark Wahlberg and Jack Reynor filling in for Shia LaBeouf. We haven't heard much about the film's plot (aside from the aforementioned "it's a sequel but it's also totally a reboot" notes from director Michael Bay) but today we have the 'Transformers 4' plot synopsis...and it sounds like pretty much all the other 'Transformers' movies.
