New TV spot from Pain & Gain: watch now

Michael Bay’s muscle-bound crime caper Pain & Gain has released a new clip online, featuring Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie bungling their way through an ill-planned kidnapping.

The trio play a group of bodybuilders sick and tired of scraping a living from working at the gym, who decide that kidnapping a crooked businessman (Tony Shalhoub) is a better way to go.

Naturally, they’re not the most meticulously prepared criminals, and it isn’t long before their half-baked scam has them in some very hot water indeed.

Take a look at the new clip, below…

While Bay is best known for blowing things up, there seems to be a really sharp sense of humour at the heart of this one, with all three stars demonstrating the comic timing to go with their bulging biceps.

Co-starring Ed Harris, Rebel Wilson and Ken Jeong, Pain & Gain will open in the UK on 3 May 2013.
