Does this poster for Michael Bay's Pain and Gain get you pumped?

Is this a simple and relatively effective teaser poster? Yes.  Is it a simple poster that communicates almost none of the drama/crazy true story behind the movie? Also yes.

PAIN AND GAIN is the story of "a pair of bodybuilders in Florida get caught up in an extortion ring and a kidnapping scheme that goes terribly wrong," and set photos have revealed Dwayne Johnson barbecuing a human hand.  So shit goes gonzo pretty quickly in this movie, and considering Michael Bay's clout I hope we get some promotional art soon that reflects the dark turns Bay has boasted the story will take.  

At least you can actually see what's going on, unlike a lot of TRANSFORMERS art that just slapped up a complicated mess of robot machinery and called it a day.

April 26th, 2013 is the release date - stay tuned for more.

Extra Tidbit: Whenever I hear about Bay's production company Platinum Dunes, all I can think is: "what the f*** does that name even mean?"
