There sure is a LOT of spandex, sweating and thick-necked dudes in the first trailer for Michael Bay's new movie Pain & Gain. And it being a Michael Bay movie, and since it's set in scorching Miami, there are at least a few scantily-clad ladies getting out of pools in slow motion.

Mark Wahlberg stars as a gym rat with dreams of a better life where his businesswear doesn't include sweat pants and he can pay his rent on time. He devises a plan to kidnap a wealthy jerk (Tony Shalhoub) and gets two iron-pumping enthusiasts (Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie) to help him and swears no one will get hurt since he's watched a lot of movies and knows what he's doing. So naturally, there's plenty to worry about.

Pain & Gain is based on a true story and marks the first non-Transformers movie Bay has made since 2005 and surprisingly, it co-stars a slew of funny people - Rebel Wilson, Ron Corddry, Ken Jeong - and Ed Harris.

 

Check out the first trailer right now. Pain & Gain opens April 26, 2013.
