Michael Bay is leaving behind giant special effects and explosions for Pain & Gain, his new thriller starring Dwayne Johnson & Mark Wahlberg. However it appears the director still wants a bit of a ‘go USA’ backdrop, literally, as this new poster sees his stars (but not stripes) in front of an American flag.
The film is based based on a true story, and sees Wahlberg & Johnson as a pair of Florida bodybuilders who get caught in the middle of an extortion and kidnapping scheme. They plan to take a rich man hostage, but things don’t exactly go to plan. Ed Harris, Rebel Wilson, Anthony Mackie, Ken Jeong and Tony Shalhoub also star.
It’s due out in the UK May 2013.
