Pain & Gain clip and poster (Exclusive)

Yahoo UK Movies News

You don't mess with Mark Wahlberg, and that includes kids too... actually, that especially includes kids.

In this exclusive clip from Michael Bay's muscle-bound crime caper 'Pain & Gain', we see Wahlberg's ex-con Daniel Lugo sort the girls from the boys on the basketball court.

And the general advice appears to be... lock up your mothers.

[First look: Pain & Gain trailer]

Revolving around the sweaty environs of a Florida gym, and based a true story, Lugo hooks up with steroid-addled trainer Adrian Doorbal (Anthony Mackie) and Paul Doyle, (Dwayne Johnson) a coke-addicted, recently-released convict who has found god, to extort Victor Kershaw (Tony Shalhoub) who they suspect to be a crook.

What could possibly go wrong?

Well, more or less everything as it goes, as an initial kidnapping turns into a mess of murder, sex toys, impotence, tasers and dismemberment.

It's not for the faint-hearted, but then, this is Michael Bay we're talking about.

We've also got an exclusive poster for the film. To describe it in a word?


'Pain & Gain' is released in the UK on August 30.
