Pain and Gain Smashes US Box Office!

Pain and Gain smashes the competition at the US box office, check out the trailer to see what all the fuss is about.

Despite the painfully obvious blips on director Michael Bay’s track record, he still seems to know how to churn out a good blockbuster. Bay’s latest effort Pain and Gain see’s stars Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, and Anthony Mackie, as bodybuilding gear heads (I’ll think you’ll find that’s the correct term). Who in order to better their existence and get ahead in life resort to kidnapping, coercian, and murder.

Now unlike countless others I’m going to spare you the horrendously cliched phrases you will hear connected to this film, no doubt regarding Dwayne Johnson bench pressing the box office competition and casting it to one side. The fact is that no matter how macho and ridiculous the premiss for this movie may be, Pain and Gain just took $20 million in it’s opening week! That’s more than Tom Cruise’s Oblivion, Jackie Robinson’s 42, and new rom com The Big Wedding.

It would seem our friends across the Atlantic know something we don’t? Check out the trailer below and see for yourself.
