Fuck subtle. This is Michael Bay, The Rock, Mark Wahlberg, bodybuilding, and murder. I love this as a teaser poster for a film about “a pair of bodybuilders in Florida get caught up in an extortion ring and a kidnapping scheme that goes terribly wrong.”
The date has been set for the film- Paramount plans to unleash it on April 26th against The Big Wedding, a rom-com with Bob DeNiro and Susan Sarandon that it will surely squash.
I’m excited to see some post-‘morphers Bay focused on a film with (supposedly) no action but plenty of black comedy, and I’m excited to see how his macho charisma intersects with Dwayne Johnson’s explosive charm. Mark Wahlberg along for the ride is just cake.
Might Michael Bay find his true calling working in a ‘roided up Michael McDonagh sphere? Let’s hope so.
