‘Pain and Gain’ Poster: Michael Bay Proves Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson Have Muscles
Michael Bay took a little excursion from the ‘Transformers‘ movies to make his latest film, ‘Pain and Gain,’ and we’ve got a brand new official poster for the musclehead crime flick starring Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson.
Yup, this brand new poster for Michael Bay’s ‘Pain and Gain,’ courtesy of Coming Soon, definitely confirms that Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson star as two dudes with huge muscles. Like, really huge muscles. And they’re staring out as us as if to say, “Yo, bros and non-bro lady people, come see our movie or we will destroy you with our pectorals.” Okay, okay, we’ll go.
But really, ‘Pain and Gain’ sounds pretty great — based on the series of Miami New Times articles of the same name, the film follows bodybuilders who fancied themselves criminal types, and got mixed up in a web of extortion, kidnapping, and eventually murder in Florida. The articles on which the film are based are a fascinating read, and it’s one of those stories where you consistently find yourself wondering how these stupid guys managed to get themselves in so far over their heads. It’s almost like a comedy of errors, but one that takes a pretty gruesome turn.
