Michael Bay’s ‘Pain & Gain’ is based on the unbelievable true story of three personal trainers in 1990s Miami who, in pursuit of the American Dream, get caught up in a criminal enterprise that goes horribly wrong. Daniel Lugo (Mark Wahlberg) is a regular bodybuilder who works at the Sun Gym along with his friend Adrian Doorbal (Anthony Mackie). Sick of living the poor life, Lugo concocts a plan to kidnap Victor Kershaw (Tony Shalhoub), a regular at the gym and a rich, spoiled businessman, and extort money from him by means of torture. With the help of recently released criminal Paul Doyle (Dwayne Johnson), the “Sun Gym Gang” successfully gets Kershaw to sign over all his finances. But when Kershaw survives an attempted murder by the gang, he hires private investigator Ed Du Bois (Ed Harris) to catch the criminals after the Miami Police Department fails to do so. The likes of Rebel Wilson, Yolanthe Cabau, Tony Plana, Keili Lefkovitz, Rob Corddry, Ken Jeong and Bar Paly also star in the action-comedy-crime film. ‘Pain & Gain’ lands in cinemas on April 26th in the US and May 3rd in the UK. Look out for another interview with Anthony Mackie for ‘Pain & Gain’ next week. Lots more interviews for the film to come!
What was it about this story and these three characters that particularly grabbed you and caught your interest?
Anthony Mackie: I was really intrigued by the psychological aspect of these three guys and what took them to this level of wanting to commit such heinous crimes. That’s what really turned me on about the idea. And especially now, in this day and age, you have the idea of achieving the American dream, and one thing that is really important to me with this story is that we all have this idea of what our lives are “supposed” to be, we all grow up wanting to be something, but very few people grow up and be the people they wanted to be as a kid, you know? So when I read the script it really brought it all up for me, and I really thought it was really interesting and wasn’t something I had thought about as an adult.
11 Hi-Res Images From ‘The Wolverine’ – Featuring Hugh Jackman, Rila Fukushima & Svetlana Khodchenkova
While we’ve already seen a number of these images in low-res form, 20th Century Fox has just unveiled these eleven images from ‘The Wolverine’ in hi-res. Alongside Hugh Jackman’s Logan/Wolverine, the film stars Hiroyuki Sanada as Shingen, Hal Yamanouchi as Yashida, Tao Okamoto as Mariko, Brian Tee as Norubo Mori, Will Yun Lee as Kenuichio Harada/Silver Samurai, Rila Fukushima as Yukio, and Svetlana Khodchenkova as Viper. Scheduled for release on July 26th, ‘The Wolverine’ is directed by James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma, Walk the Line, Knight and Day), while the script is by ‘The Usual Suspects’ scribe Christopher McQuarrie and Mark Bomback.
Describing ‘The Wolverine’ as a “Japanese noir picture with tentpole action in it”, director James Mangold recently said the film is set after the previous X-Men movies. ‘The Wolverine’ takes inspiration from Chris Claremont and Frank Miller’s Marvel miniseries from the 1980s dealing with the character’s adventures in Japan. There, samurai steel clashes with adamantium claws as Logan confronts a mysterious figure from his past in an epic battle that will leave him forever changed. The official synopsis for ‘The Wolverine’ can be read below images. If you missed the first trailers for the film you can view them here.
The Wrap send word that Will Ferrell and Jack Black are attached to ‘Tag Brothers,’ a pitch based on a recent Wall Street Journal article that New Line Cinema just snapped up after a major bidding war. Ferrell and Black shared a single – albeit memorable – scene together in ‘Anchorman,’ but this project would represent their first substantial pairing should the script come together.
In February, Todd Garner’s Broken Road banner acquired life rights to the ‘Tag Brothers,’ a group of former classmates from Spokane, Washington whose long-running game of Tag garnered national attention following a feature story in the Wall Street Journal. Now in their 40s, the group spends the month of February chasing each other across the country to avoid being “It,” all while balancing their personal and professional obligations. The shenanigans are pretty serious, with friends breaking into each other’s homes and offices to score that crucial physical contact.
With a different version of ‘Iron Man 3′ set be screened in China, Marvel has revealed this special Chinese TV spot for the soon-to-be-released threequel. Renowned Chinese actor Wang Xueqi will appear in both the studio’s Chinese version of ‘Iron Man 3′ and in its international and domestic US version. Both versions of the film include footage filmed in Beijing in December. The Chinese version of the film will also feature a special appearance of Fan Bingbing, and will offer specially prepared bonus footage made exclusively for the Chinese audience.
‘Iron Man 3,’ the latest installment of the ‘Iron Man’ film franchise that has grossed more than $1.2 billion at the global box office, will be released internationally starting April 25th and in North America on May 3rd. ‘Iron Man 3′ is the seventh installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, being the first major release in the franchise since the crossover film ‘The Avengers.’
Closely following the two new phenomenal trailers for ‘Only God Forgives,’ these four images have arrived online from the hotly-anticipated revenge thriller. ’Only God Forgives’ is directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, who won Best Director at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival for ‘Drive.’ The film reunites Refn with ‘Drive’ star Ryan Gosling and also features Kristin Scott Thomas, Vithaya Pansringarm, Tom Burke and Yayaying. The film’s score is by award-winning ‘Drive’ composer Cliff Martinez (Spring Breakers, Contagion).
In ‘Only God Forgives,’ Ryan Gosling plays Julian, the son of a Florida-based crime syndicate boss (Kristen Scott Thomas), who is plying the drug trade in Thailand with his brother. When his addicted sibling gets involved in a murder and gets tangled up with a cop who calls himself the Angel of Vengeance, Gosling’s character, who is proficient in mixed martial arts, is compelled to seek revenge on behalf of his mother. Look out for ‘Only God Forgives’ on July 19th in the US. Icon Film Distribution and Lionsgate will release the film in the summer in the UK and Ireland, although a specific date has yet to be announced. Check out the official synopsis for ‘Only God Forgives’ below.
