It's muscles, mutts and Michael Bay in these 23 new images for PAIN & GAIN

You may not know this, but Darryn has a Michael Bay shrine in his bedroom. Well he used to. He had to blow it up as some sign of devotion. It’s apparently a thing Bay-kin (as I have dubbed them) do. The point is that he likes Michael Bay. A lot. Me? Not so much.

And yet, I am super excited for Pain & Gain, the “based on a true story” funny tale that sees the director returning to his slightly lower budget roots. The film sports a fantastic cast, and now you can get a look at all of them (including some behind the scenes pics) in these 23 new images.

Based on a true story first told in an article from the “Miami New Times”,”Pain & Gain” follows a group of bodybuilders who engaged in a campaign of kidnapping, extortion and murder in Florida. But when the wealthy scumbag they’re extorting decides to hire his own muscle to get revenge, things spiral out of control to often ridiculous results.

This film looks insanely fun and a lot of that is down to what really is an outstanding cast. With this being a Michael Bay movie though, you should probably keep an eye out for a cameo from the USS Nimitz with its full compliment, two squadrons of F22 Raptors and an Apache gunship slowly flying in in front of a sunset.

Pain & Gain will be flexing its way into cinemas on April 26, 2013
