At this point, you're either totally stoked to see Michael Bay's "Pain & Gain" or you're not, and if you're not, we're not sure what to tell you. Sure, Bay has spent pretty much the last decade making toy porn for man children, but "Pain & Gain" represents a return to his "low budget" roots (relatively speaking), and brings together a pretty crack cast for an outrageous tale that's based on a true story. What's not to like?

Pain & Gain

At this point, you're either totally stoked to see Michael Bay's "Pain & Gain" or you're not, and if you're not, we're not sure what to tell you. Sure, Bay has spent pretty much the last decade making toy porn for man children, but "Pain & Gain" represents a return to his "low budget" roots (relatively speaking), and brings together a pretty crack cast for an outrageous tale that's based on a true story. What's not to like?

To bring you up to speed, "Pain & Gain" stars Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie as a trio of bodybuilders who try to get rich by kidnapping and extorting a wealthy jerk (Tony Shalhoub). But their plan backfires when he hires Ed Harris to help him exact revenge and then stuff presumably explodes. Rebel Wilson, Ken Jeong, Rob Corddry and more round things out, and yeah, no matter how it shapes up, this should be one wild time at the movies. Need evidence? Check out the new images below.

"Pain & Gain" pumps you up on April 26th. [IMDB]
