Paramount has released the first trailer for Michael Bay‘s Pain and Gain, and it’s kind of fantastic.  Based on a true story, the film stars Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson as two bodybuilders who get caught up in an extortion ring and kidnapping scheme that goes terribly wrong.  Wahlberg and Johnson look to make an incredibly strong comedic pair, and Wahlberg in particular appears to be in excellent form as a bodybuilder with big dreams.  Though the film was made on a budget of $22 million, Bay’s visual style is unmistakable and there’s a strong Bad Boys vibe that permeates throughout the trailer; the description of the film as “small-scale” is only applicable when you’re taking about Michael Bay.  All in all, this is promising stuff.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  Anthony Mackie, Rob Corddry, Ed Harris, John Turturro, and Rebel Wilson co-star.  Pain and Gain opens April 26, 2013.

    Honestly I’m impressed, not gonna lie.

  • chanandeler bong

    Yea it looks like a weirdly fresh material from Bay.

  • Nate H

    I actually think I’m interested in this movie. I like Wahlberg and the Rock, and anything with Ed Harris in it is going to be decent. Plus, it is a suprisingly fresh angle from the 360-degree-pannning, non-stop explosioning, non-existent-plot-having that Michael Bay typically makes. Maybe this will be a good turn for him.

    Im 50/50 on this one right now.

    Agreed. Bay maybe on to something combining Bad Boys 1 style format with Transformers style camera angles and pyrotechnics. Lol.

    Since Bad Boys came out the same year this one is based (and in Miami), I wouldn’t be surprised to see a cameo somehow by Agents Mike Lowery and Marcus Burnett somehow.

    It looks great and The Rock is always awesome.

  • Eric Nixon

    I’m kinda torn . It looks like a movie that I’d have been sold on if it were any other director. But because it’s Michael Bay, I just see it easily being just another shallow movie.

  • Philip Zamora

    Looks terrible. This trailer only supports that bizarre feeling I’ve always had about Michael Bay’s work — it lacks humanity. The stuff that he tends to find funny is human respect and decency. Definitely gonna pass on this one.

    It looks like every crappy director needs his ” anonymous ” stuff now.

  • dogg

    Hate Bay, hate The Rock…but dammit, I kinda liked that trailer.

    why do people give michael bay crap? he is a great director who gets sh*tty scripts. Even Nolan praised him. coming from a techincal standpoint i see no reason why anyone would hate a bay film. the way he shoots his stuff is mind blowing

    • zac

      couldn’t agree more! he’s technically brilliant and has unique visual signature and for any other term they’re called “auters” every tim burton film looks like tim burton, every cameron film is like a cameron film, every nolan film feels and looks like a nolan film wes anderson etc! so what’s wrong with bay having his style…he’s not perfect but no filmmaker is, he does some things great others not! All the hate started by some dousche with a hidden agenda 15 yrs ago and all the sheep jumped on the bandwagon. So many filmmakers love him and rip him off constantly! There are far worse and insginificant film directors out there who don’t get bashed! He makes movies for teenagers and not just “geeks” as always don’t like it don’t watch it

    In the actual story it’s based on people were kidnaped, tortured and killed in terrible ways and Michael Bay made an action comedy out of it?

    • terry

      And the real guys were gay. Muscle Marrys. And there wasn’t a black guy in the group. The guys that really did this were sociopaths to the nth degree. I live in Miami and followed the story so what I have seen so far from the trailer is complete bull****.

  • terry

    What a crock of sh**! I know the story and this so called telling is BS.
    First off this is coming off as a character driven story with Mark as the focal point. Pathetic.
    They actually killed their victims. I believe the first guy they robbed had his hands, legs and head chopped off and left buck a** naked in a public storage shed.
    Hollywood took the story and turned it on its head. they did they same thing to Donny Brasco. At the end Pacino’s character should have been found decomposing in a 50 gallon oil drum like it harpooned in real life. The Banano crime family punished him for not knowing Pistone, playing Donny, was a cop! The whole effing movie was trash.
    This junk ain’t no motherefiing different.

      “end Pacino’s character should have been found decomposing in a 50 gallon oil drum like it harpooned in real life. The Banano crime family punished him for not knowing Pistone, playing Donny, was a cop! The whole effing movie was trash.”

      Err, if you don’t know anything about the true story, then it would probably be best not to write anything.

    Ok so Mark Wahlberg looks hilariously blown up in this…what a silly guy, I can’t take him seriously even when he does a great job acting (see The Fighter) he’s still Markie Mark to me. And yes, this movie could easily be the worst thing ever, but if it is even as good as Bad Boys, I will leave the theater happy. Should be good for some intense (if not campy) action and a couple good laughs. The trailer makes it look at least that promising…also loved that they used “Crown on the Ground” by Sleigh Bells during the cut shots over South Beach.
