'Pain & Gain' Trailer: Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson Favor Fast Cars and Tasers (Video)
Michael Bay's true-crime drama hits theaters April 26.
The guys of Pain & Gain take gym time to a new level in the film's red-band trailer.
Michael Bay’s Miami-set true-crime film follows bodybuilders played by Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson who hatch a plot to kidnap and extort a local crime boss played by Tony Shalhoub.
Also featured are Anthony Mackie as a man who is worse for the wear because of his constant steroid use and Ken Jeong as a motivational speaker who inspires Wahlberg’s Daniel Lugo to take action in his life, which Lugo interprets as a go-ahead to get involved in crime.
In real life, the men were dubbed the Sun Gym Gang, named after their place of choice for pumping iron. Their exploits -- and eventual downfall -- were chronicled by the Miami New Times in a 1999 series of stories. Lugo was sentenced to death for his role in their crimes.
