First of all, it looks like Mark Wahlberg is trying to pull a Hamm in his pants in this poster. Moving on, Michael Bay (BOOM! ASPLODE!) has got a little project starring Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson as a couple of bodybuilders that kidnap someone to make a bit of money, as all the smartest people tend to do. Of course, everything goes wrong and the duo end up in the Murder Circle Of Life. Gaze upon the poster (and Wahlberg's pants).

Pain & Gain is, as pointed out on the poster, a true story of two Miami bodybuilders. I find this interesting, because I'm guessing that Bay was sitting in his mansion, surrounded by life-sized Transformers, wracking his brain about how he could include an airplane exploding. Hell, even a store front exploding onto a sidewalk full of people. "Are you sure they didn't have a workout bench that was actually a robot from another planet?" Bay would ask screenwriters Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely (both wrote Captain America: The First Avenger). "Sorry, Mr. Bay," they would reply. Bay would then sadly shuffle into his back yard and throw Black Cat firecrackers at his menagerie of innocent bystanders.

Pain & Gain also stars Anthony Mackie, Ed Harris, Tony Shalhoub, Rob Corddry, Rebel Wilson, Bar Paly, and a severed hand.
