The synopsis for Pain and Gain starring Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson aka the Rock declares that Michael Bay is an 'acclaimed director'. I love the dude and think his mindless popcorn movies are fantastic but acclaimed? I dont get exactly what that means. Then again I am but a lowly blogger with very little substance in the finer definitions and terms for filmmaking like the difference between an 'acclaimed' director and an 'award winning' director.
Regardless of what he is I am a huge Michael Bay fan and the new trailer for Pain & Gain has landed in my inbox courtesy of Paramount and you can check it out below.
Pain and Gain is based on the unbelievable true story of a group of personal trainers in 1990s Miami who, in pursuit of the American Dream, get caught up in a criminal enterprise that goes horribly wrong.
The trailer is action packed, full of witty one liners and had me chuckling aloud throughout. If you are a fan of Michael Bay like I am then you will love the Red Band trailer for Pain and Gain.
'Remember kids, don't be eye balling me cause I see your mom looking at me on the streets and I will be your step father by the weekend' – Mark Wahlberg, Pain & Gain.
