Michael Bay's latest flick is going to bring the pain - and a few laughs, judging from the trailer.
Mark Wahlberg stars as Daniel Lugo, a fitness buff who gets wrapped up in an extortion and kidnapping plot along with two other just-as-ripped weight-lifters, played by Anthony Mackie and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
In between quick shots of strippers, fast rides and plenty of cash, the trailer slips in a few jokes to show that the script isn't without a sense of humor.
"Pain & Gain" will open April 26, 2013. Before then, Jason Bateman's bona fide comedy with Melissa McCarthy, "Identity Thief," will arrive in theaters February 8.
McCarthy stars as Diana, the woman behind the identity theft woes of Bateman's character, Sandy.
To resolve his myriad financial issues, Sandy embarks on a trip to Florida, figuring he could take her. According to the newest clip, it seems he thought wrong.
