The new trailer for Michael Bay’s latest film Pain and Gain has just dropped like 20kg dumbbell after a muscle busting third set of reps. There is plenty of muscle, plenty of Sun, and plenty of quick snapshots of hot girls.
Check it out after the bump. Spoilers are moderate and storyline based but nothing major
Goddammit. I can feel it happening again. That bile of hatred and Grinch-esque delirium swirling up inside of me like a muted tornado of frustration. I thought we had reached a truce, popcorn culture and I, but then this happens. My elitist anti-all-the-bad-things-about-hollywood-/-America-/-human-race-wrapped-up-in-one-movie was meant to be a beast of the past. The born again Buddha was meant to live and let live. So what if another manufactured money maker comes and woos the masses? I could just turn away and indulge in my own interests for a change. Who am I to so actively seek and destroy other people’s happiness?
But you give an inch and look what they do. Too much I say! They took more than a mile. This wasn’t part of the deal…
When we came up with the idea for a trailer trash category we were afraid that using clips from YouTube for the trailers would appear cheap, but I think in the case of Justin Bieber and his new movie, Never Say Never, it is quite fitting.
I would have liked to avoid this trailer for fear of what it would do to my suppressed negativity but it screened before Gnomeo and Juliet (don’t ask), and hence was forced upon me. Sure, I could have done the duck and cover (a spoiler avoider technique which involves shrinking into the seat and covering ones’ ears while a trailer explains an upcoming movie to you in full detail) but that would mean I gave Never Say Never the same treatment as There Will Be Blood, which wouldn’t seem right.
