Whatever you may think of director Michael Bay, think again. The Transformers franchise director looks to have refreshed his creative juices with his new, pumped-up heist comedy Pain & Gain starring Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson, and we've got a first look at the new, over-the-top Red-Band trailer. Warning: There's lots of profanity and a bloody, dismembered toe in this one.
In theaters April 26, Pain & Gain is based on a true story about Miami bodybuilders (Wahlberg, Johnson and Anthony Mackie) looking to move up in the world, so they hatch a plan to kidnap a local crime boss (played by Tony Shalhoub) and extort him for his money. Of course, once they get to live large, that's where the real pain begins.
The expert supporting cast features Ken Jeong as the motivational speaker that inspires Wahlberg, Ed Harris as the private investigator who helps Shalhoub get his money back, Rebel Wilson as a medical technician with a taste for Mackie, and Rob Corddry as a gym owner and partner in crime.
