Michael Bay only agreed to make Transformers 4 if he could direct his long-gestating movie, Pain & Gain first. Now that movie is incoming, and the first trailer has arrived. Although it looks less explosion filled than most of Bay’s film, it’s still got that slightly hyper-real look he’s known for – as well as a tendency to linger on scantily clad women.
The film is based based on a true story, and sees Mark Wahlberg & Dwayne 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.
