A brand new red-band trailer has landed for Michael Bay’s action comedy, Pain and Gain, and as expected, it features plenty of swearing, violence and the odd bit of semi nudity (it is a red-band trailer for a reason!).
The cast of Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie all bounce off each other brilliantly, and the dialogue here is just brilliant I especially like Wahlberg’s final rant on the basketball court to some poor little kid. With this being a Michael Bay film though, there is tons of action and a cool ‘street’ vibe to the trailer, and although this probably would have failed with the wrong cast, Bay has picked the perfect team to carry his film.
Wahlberg is really going from strength to strength these days, and Dwayne Johnson continues to up his game, so their appeal alone will sell this film whether you like Michael Bay or not.
Michael Bay directts from a screenplay written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. The cast includes Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, Rebel Wilson, Bar Paly, Anthony Mackie, Ed Harris, Ken Jeong, Rob Corddry, Kurt Angle and Dian Laura.
Pain and Gain arrives in UK cinemas 3rd May 2013.
