The latest trailer for Michael Bay’s “Pain & Gain” has arrived, and it’s absolutely hilarious. Though Dwayne Johnson’s character Paul Doyle, Mark Wahlberg’s Daniel Lugo and Anthony Mackie’s Adrian Doorbal aren’t considered heroes in real life, they definitely look like they will be in the movie based on what we’ve seen this red band trailer.
The video is for ages 17 and up because of some swearing, violence and a severed toe. It’s also much more comedic than the previous “Pain & Gain” trailers released. The use of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ song “Thrift Shop” helps with that, but the new scenes of Rebel Wilson and Ken Jeong make it seem like “Pain & Gain” could be as much a comedy as it is an action movie.
In fact, now we really hope that the actual movie has the same tone as this red band trailer. Bay has made action comedies in the past, so hopefully he realizes how ridiculous this true story is and runs with it. That’s the vibe we’ve gotten from what has been released of the movie so far.
“Pain & Gain” also stars Tony Shalhoub, Ed Harris, Rob Corddry and Mindy Robinson. It’s due in theaters on April 26. Here’s it’s official plot synopsis:
From acclaimed director Michael Bay comes “Pain & Gain,” a new action comedy starring Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie. Based on the unbelievable true story of three personal trainers in 1990s Miami who, in pursuit of the American Dream, get caught up in a criminal enterprise that goes horribly wrong. Ed Harris, Tony Shalhoub, Rob Corddry, Rebel Wilson and Bar Paly also star. The film is based on magazine articles by Pete Collins, with a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely and produced by Donald DeLine, Michael Bay and Ian Bryce.
