I cannot wait to see Michael Bay‘s Pain & Gain. The red-band trailer is hilarious, and without the benefit of giant robots, it looks like Bay has had to put more focus on story and character. That’s not to say that they’ll be particularly deep, but at least they won’t be wallpaper for an onslaught of CG. This movie is going to rely on the excellent cast just as much as it’s going to rely on the set pieces.
I’m pleased to announce that we’ll be giving away 15 passes to the Atlanta screening of Pain and Gain. Hit the jump to find out how you can check out the film early and for free. The movie stars Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, Anthony Mackie, Rob Corddry, Rebel Wilson, Ed Harris, and Tony Shalhoub. Pain & Gain opens April 26th.
