Paramount Pictures debuts a red band trailer for its upcoming action crime film "Pain and Gain". The new preview reveals the core reason why Mark Wahlberg's character Daniel Lugo is determined to leave his life as a gym rat.
Lugo, who "believes in fitness" and has only been seen around fitness center, is attending Get Rich Now seminar, sitting among hundreds of seminar participants. Interested in the idea of being a doer in order to be successful, Lugo seems inspired more by the motivator, who has left his wife and got seven hot chicks in return, as he says to himself, "This guy understands me."
The preview also highlights scenes of Wahlberg and his partners in crime, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Anthony Mackie, getting prepared for the crime they are about to commit.
Directed by Michael Bay, "Pain and Gain" is based on a 1999 Miami New Times article. The film follows a group of bodybuilders who engage in a campaign of kidnapping, extortion and murder in Florida.
The cast ensemble also includes Rebel Wilson, Ken Jeong, Ed Harris, Tony Shalhoub, Rob Corddry, Bar Paly, Tony Plana and Yolanthe Cabau. It will open Stateside on April 26.
