Director Michael Bay’s films have, over the years, become synonymous with summer action blockbusters, with the Transformers franchise, of which he helmed all three features, being very successful financially as tentpole releases. For his next film, however, Bay expressed a desire to make a smaller-budget film. To that end, he chose a script by The Chronicles of Narnia co-writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. Titled Pain & Gain, the feature reunites Bay with his The Rock villain Ed Harris, who’s joined onscreen by Mark Wahlberg, Anthony Mackie, Tony Shalhoub, Dwayne Johnson, Ken Jeong, and Rebel Wilson. The first trailer for the feature has now been released, and can be seen below.
