Pumped Up Poster for Michael Bay's 'Pain and Gain'; Opening April 2013

A muscle builder if there ever was one

Paramount announced today an April 26, 2013 release date for Michael Bay's Pain and Gain, and with it they've revealed a teaser poster full of muscle building protein.

The film, starring Dwayne Johnson and Mark Wahlberg is based on a 1999 Miami New Times article, and follows a couple of criminal bodybuilders involved in an extortion ring and a kidnapping plot. Ed Harris, Rob Corddry, Anthony Mackie, Tony Shalhoub, Bar Paly, Ken Jeong, Tony Plana and Rebel Wilson co-star.

Pain and Gain is Bay's "small film" before he gets back in the saddle to direct Transformers 4, which is already set for a June 27, 2014 release.

Check out the poster directly below.

    I think this will be fun. Will be two movies in a month for The Rock with Fast Six coming out in May.

    Love this poster. I hope this movie is good but i fear it will go down the Bad Boys path.

    I thought the poster was creative and unique. I'm actually sort of interested in seeing what Bay does with something a little more low-key.

    Can't wait to see this thing. The article is bonkers and the movie feels like it is going right along that path.

    I can't deny a certain curiosity at how Bay does low budget.
