Marky Mark and The Rock Bring The ‘Pain & Gain’ to Blu-ray!

Pain and Gain Blu-ray New TNTry as I might, I just couldn’t find the time to make it to the theater this year to catch Michael Bay’s vacation from the Transformers franchise, Pain & Gain.  I wanted to, but lady luck was never on my side unfortunately.  However, I don’t let things like this get me down.  After all, our very own Gerard once missed seeing a paid entrance to Oblivion because he was standing in line buying Rob Zombie albums.  Things like this happen.  Life happens.  I knew I would eventually get a go around with this bad boy on Blu-ray and thankfully with today’s announcement it looks like I won’t be waiting too much longer.  Check out the full press release from Paramount below.

HOLLYWOOD, Calif.  –  Called “outrageously entertaining” (Marlow Stern, Newsweek), “hilarious, smart, clever and fresh” (Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly) and “the guy flick of 2013” (Stephen Rebello, Playboy), director Michael Bay’s hilarious dark comedy PAIN & GAIN gets pumped on Blu-ray combo pack, DVD and On Demand August 27, 2013 from Paramount Home Media Distribution.  And only for the real Doers, the film will be available on Digital two weeks early on August 13th.  Based on an unbelievable true story, PAIN & GAIN stars Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie as a group of personal trainers in 1990s Miami who, in pursuit of the American Dream, get caught up in a criminal enterprise that goes horribly wrong.  Hailed by critics as “a new American classic” (Shawn Edwards, FOX-TV), this pitch dark comedy is “unhinged, frenetic, darkly funny” (Alynda Wheat, People) and “like Pulp Fiction—without the fiction!” (Mark S. Allen, KMAX-TV).  Adapted for the screen by writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely from articles written by journalist Pete Collins, PAIN & GAIN also stars Tony Shalhoub (“Monk”), Ed Harris (A History of Violence), Rob Corddry (Hot Tub Time Machine), Rebel Wilson (Bridesmaids), Ken Jeong (The Hangover) and Bar Paly (The Ruins).

The Blu-ray release available for purchase will be enabled with UltraViolet, a new way to collect, access and enjoy movies.  With UltraViolet, consumers can add movies to their digital collection in the cloud, and then stream or download them – reliably and securely – to a variety of devices.
