Paramount has released a new TV spot for director Michael Bay’s incredibly promising black comedy Pain & Gain. 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. The film’s first trailer is fantastic, and this TV spot does a great job of showcasing that pic’s charm and comedy. Pain & Gain looks like it could actually be Bay’s most entertaining film yet, but I have a feeling they’re keeping some of the story’s more sordid details under wraps. The real life ordeal is fairly horrific, though I expect Wahlberg and Johnson will bring enough levity/ridiculousness to the film to make it palatable.
Hit the jump to watch the latest TV spot. Anthony Mackie, Rob Corddry, Ed Harris, Tony Shalhoub, and Rebel Wilson co-star. Pain & Gain opens April 26, 2013.
