Trailer Debut: Pain & Gain (Red Band)

A new trailer for Michael Bay’s (relatively) low budget black comedy Pain & Gain has arrived online. This one shows off its gorier aspects, hence the Red Band.


Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson star in the flick as ‘roided-up gym junkies who get tangled up in a blackmail scheme.

It’s based on a fantastically compelling true story (you can read the article that inspired the movie here).

Sadly – if not unexpectedly – much of the comedy in the trailer falls flat.

Bay’s not exactly known for understatement, so those punchlines are hit pretty hard.

At least it looks pretty. (Warning: some coarse language and a severed toe lies ahead.)

Hopefully the full feature is more satisfying.

It hits cinemas this August.
