The Trailer for "Pain & Gain" May Actually be Painful to Watch

Just think, if it wasn't for Magic Mike's recent success, we wouldn't be able to see so many desperately mediocre "based on a true story" screenplays masked by a bunch of greasy male bodies on the big screen. And who would want to miss the chance to see director Michael Bay's latest flop masterpiece, Pain and Gain?

Starring Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson, the half comedy/half (???)  Pain and Gain looks like it popped right out of the bromance movie pez dispenser, down to the actors' glistening muscles on the official movie poster (above). More on it below:

From acclaimed director Michael Bay comes “Pain and 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.

Captain America: First Avenger writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely penned the script, which may alleviate some concern you might have for it. And it can't be too bad if Ed Harris and Anthony Mackie are in it, right? RIGHT?! 

Take a look at the new trailer:

Pain and Gain hits theaters April 26th.

Part of me is like "Ugh, Michael Bay." and the other part is like "ooohh shirtless Mark Wahlberg, The Rock, and Anthony Mackie. Mmmmmm." I'm torn.
