A new official promotional poster has been released for the bodybuilding-themed dark comedy “Pain & Gain”, which is set to hit theaters on April 26, 2013.
Directed by Michael Bay, the film stars Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as two Miami bodybuilders who get caught up in a kidnapping, extortion and murder scheme that goes horribly wrong.
The film is actually based on a true story that occurred in Miami in the late 1990s and has been a pet project of Bay’s for years.
Supporting cast includes Ed Harris, Anthony Mackie, Rob Corddry, Rebel Wilson, Ken Jeong and Tony Shaloub and features a script penned by “Captain America: The First Avenger” writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.
With a small budget of roughly $20 million, the film is the first Bay project to cost under $100 million since 1996’s The Rock.
