Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson star in the newest Michael Bay film schedule to hit theaters on April 26, 2013. The story is based on a true story of two bodybuilders in Florida who get caught up in an extortion ring and kidnapping scheme that goes terribly wrong. Director Michael Bay is known for his over-the-top big budget films but Bay and the bodybuilding Bad Boys reportedly all took pay cuts for this film.
Mark Wahlberg bulked up for his role in order to hang with “The Rock” in this film. Both men are in solid shape and look hardbody, at least from this trailer. The Rock recently tweeted, “AM: Shot craziest scenes of my career. PM: Pray for forgiveness. AM: Do it all over again. #PainAndGain”.
What will the world think of a bodybuilding movie when it’s released this Spring? Only time will tell but let’s hope it inspires more people to get off the couch and hit the gym.
