Pain & Gain Blu-ray August 27, 2013 / Digital Download on August 13, 2013
HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – Called “outrageously entertaining” (Marlow Stern, Newsweek), “hilarious, smart, clever and fresh” (Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly) and “the guy flick of 2013” (Stephen Rebello, Playboy), director Michael Bay’s hilarious dark comedy PAIN & GAIN gets pumped on Blu-ray combo pack, DVD and On Demand August 27, 2013 from Paramount Home Media Distribution. And only for the real Doers, the film will be available on Digital two weeks early on August 13th. 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. Hailed by critics as “a new American classic” (Shawn Edwards, FOX-TV), this pitch dark comedy is “unhinged, frenetic, darkly funny” (Alynda Wheat, People) and “like Pulp Fiction—without the fiction!” (Mark S. Allen, KMAX-TV). 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).
