First trailer for Pain & Gain: watch now

"I'm hot, I'm big"

 

The first trailer has arrived for Michael Bay's musclebound saga Pain & Gain and it looks to be a promising blend of chaotic action and meatheaded humour.

The film follows a trio of personal trainers (Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie) as they look to escape "going to work in sweatpants for the next forty years" by ripping off a wealthy client.

Unfortunately for them, their mark isn't about to take this lying down, and our heroes aren't exactly master criminals. Soon enough, things begin to fall apart in spectacular style.

Take a look, below:



The action looks as kinetic and supercharged as you'd expect from Michael Bay, but the real surprise here is the humour, with Wahlberg and Johnson looking to make an excellent comic pairing. "I cannot kill!" particularly tickled us.

Co-starring Ed Harris, Tony Shalhoub and Rebel Wilson, Pain & Gain will open in the UK on 3 May 2013. Time to bulk up!

What do you think of the new trailer? Tell us, below!

      Why is Whalberg so good at playing thickos?

      Because he naturally has a vacant look me thinks. Looks like a bit of good ole no brain entertainment.

      Set in 1995, but the guns, cars, and pretty much the whole of Miami seems to be from 2012... nice to see Bay made absolutely no effort getting the period right lol.

      @writerdave; well observed. I don't think Michael Bay has any concept of time, space, logic or anything that doesn't end with a bang.

      For a Michael Boy movie it actually looks ok.
