Hailed as “Goodfellas on steroids” (Kyle Smith, New York Post), director Michael Bay’s “hilarious, smart, clever and fresh” (Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly) dark comedy PAIN & GAIN arrives December 3, 2013 in a Special Collector’s Edition Blu-ray bulked up with brand new bonus material from Paramount Home Media Distribution. Based on an unbelievable true story, PAIN & GAIN stars Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie as a group of personal trainers in 1990s Miami who, in pursuit of the American Dream, get caught up in a criminal enterprise that goes horribly wrong.
The PAIN & GAIN Special Collector’s Edition Blu-ray includes nearly an hour of in-depth and exciting bonus footage that takes viewers inside the surreal true story and its intriguing cast of characters. Discover Michael Bay’s vision for this character-driven story and explore the histories of Daniel Lugo, Paul Doyle, Adrian Doorbal and Victor Kershaw and their sensational descent into an inescapable web of horrifically bizarre crime.
Adapted for the screen by writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely from articles written by journalist Pete Collins, PAIN & GAIN also stars Tony Shalhoub (“Monk”), Ed Harris (A History of Violence), Rob Corddry (Hot Tub Time Machine), Rebel Wilson (Bridesmaids), Ken Jeong (The Hangover) and Bar Paly (The Ruins).
