It’s time to get buff! The new poster for “Pain & Gain,” starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Mark Wahlberg and Anthony Mackie, is now out, and it looks like when it comes to this movie, it’s going to be all muscle and all action, all the time.

Director Michael Bay is behind the action comedy that tells the true story of three personal trainers in 1990s Miami who get caught up in criminal activity that goes terribly awry.

“Mark is awesome. We had a blast working on ‘Pain and Gain’ and I’m so fired up to be back working with him,” said Bay in a statement. “An actor of his caliber is the perfect guy to re-invigorate the franchise and carry on the Transformers’ legacy.”

Wahlberg will also be a part of Bay’s “Transformers 4,” which will be shooting next spring and coming to theaters June 27, 2014. “Pain & Gain,” also starring Rebel Wilson, Ken Jeong, Ed Harris, Rob Corddry and Tony Shalhoub will be out in theaters April 26, 2013.

From the poster, which you can see below, it looks like it’s going to be a fun way to kick off the spring/summer movie season. In any event, it’ll be a great diversion from the potentially dreary weather that occurs during April.
