painandgainMichael Bay’s latest film, Pain and Gain, premiered in Los Angeles.

The dark comedy is based on a true story and stars Mark Walberg and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as none other than bodybuilders.

Along with Anthony Mackie, the trio gets caught in an extortion ring.

Wahlberg says, “They did some pretty horrific things so you know there’s no shortcut to the American Dream.  And it just went to start spiraling out of control and instead of putting the brakes on; they just always felt like they could get away with it.”

You can catch Pain and Gain when it hits theaters Friday.
