“Don’t worry. That’s what we specialize in here. Penis magic.”
Just when you thought it was safe to go to the movies without seeing Tony Shaloub again, Michael Bay ’86 has dropped the trailer to his new “action-comedy,” Pain & Gain. Looks like we’re in for quite a ride in this 90s-Miami set bodybuilding/heist thriller (based on a true story)! If you’re looking for a new film with lines like, “You know who invented salad? Poor people” (which, as you might know, is the slogan for Michael Bay’s career), you’ll want to head to your local cinema on April 26. Bring some cocaine to sprinkle on your popcorn.
Pain & Gain stars Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Anthony Mackie, and the aforementioned Shaloub. But don’t worry. Ken Jeong and the girl who plays “Fat Amy” in that a cappella movie are also in it.
The trailer dropped a few days ago on MichaelBay.Com, or as I don’t call it, “God’s Gift to the Internet.” Peep it below and read the synopsis, via SlashFilm after the jump. Ok so it might be kinda fun.
