Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson talks Transformers and a cool project with Mark Wahlberg

Today, Dwayne " The Rock " Johnson did a quick little Q&A with fans on Twitter which he approximately titled "Rock Talk." My fellow editor, Paul Shirey and I have decided to pitch a daytime talk show with that same name to Johnson. It will be the best thing you've ever seen in your life. There will be a cooking segment called "Can You Smell What the Rock is Cooking?" that will feature...

Review: Pain & Gain

PLOT : In the latest feature from Michael Bay , the director takes a break from the massive budget spectacle of giant robots. PAIN AND GAIN is a true crime story, one in which the director brings his over-the-top style to a story about three bodybuilders (two of which work at a local Miami gym) who decide to go for the American dream, but with deadly circumstances. While this is...

2 clips from Michael Bay's Pain and Gain highlight penis magic and incompetence

The trailers and TV spots for Michael Bay 's PAIN AND GAIN have thus far looked exactly like the kind of film you'd expect from the director. Loud, kinetic, flashy, and chopped like a car commercial on, you guessed it, steroids. It has the signature humor that Bay typically injects in his films, which often feels like it shouldn't be there (i.e. TRANSFORMERS). However, I think that PAIN AND...

New poster and images for Michael Bay's Pain and Gain with Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson

Michael Bay gets a lot of (rightfully deserved) flak from most hardcore film geeks but his new film PAIN AND GAIN might ease some of that ill will many have towards the director. At least until NINJA TURTLES comes out.  If I had to use two words to describe the marketing for PAIN AND GAIN it would be "America" and "muscles". Both are evident once again in this final poster for...

Mark Wahlberg only wants what's his in the red band trailer for Pain & Gain

Here's the roided out version of the American dream thanks to Michael Bay . A red band trailer for PAIN & GAIN has been released today, and it's certainly intriguing. I'm definitely a fan of most of the cast in this film: Mark Wahlberg , Dwayne " The Rock " Johnson, Anthony Mackie , Ed Harris , Rebel Wilson , and Rob Corddry just to name a few. It also has the whole true...

The trailer for Michael Bay's Pain and Gain is full of roid rage

I was not quite sure what to make of PAIN AND GAIN based on the posters or the behind the scenes images we have seen to date. Was it going to be a comedy or a drama or what? Based on this international trailer, it is a combination of both with some action thrown in for good measure. This looks like the smallest film from Michael Bay in quite a long time, which is the understatement...

Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson have a bigger American dream than you says this poster for Pain & Gain

There's something very awesome about this new poster for Michael Bay 's PAIN AND GAIN. Maybe Mark Wahlberg 's head looks a little shopped...or maybe his face is really that smooth and handsome. Regardless, I have a feeling that these two will make a terrific pairing. This may also be a film that will make me think a little more of Bay. I'm not so much for an explosion in every...

Michael Bay responds to actors complaining about doing voicework

In the last week we've had two actors, both Paul Bettany and Hugo Weaving, speak candidly about the voice work they've done for some of the most profitable films in Hollywood.  And, what they had to say wasn't exactly inspiring.  We reported on Hugo Weaving's thoughts on playing Megatron in Michael Bay's TRANSFORMERS films, where he said, " They wanted me to do it. In one way, I regret...
