Michael Bay’s break between Transformers movies proved to be a surprise success both critically and financially. Pain & Gain, starring Dwayne Johnson and Mark Wahlberg, followed a trio of hapless workout fanatics who become involved in a kidnapping. The film made great use of its star power and also has the balls to contain a bunch of reprehensible characters. Some great performances and a wonderful visual style from Bay made this a film to remember among all the big budget blockbusters this year, and you can own it on Digital Download from 17th December or on DVD and Blu-ray from 23rd December.

Universal has released the first trailer, poster, and images for Jaume Collet-Serra's Non-Stop. The film takes place on a transatlantic flight where a U.S. Air Marshall (Liam Neeson) must stop a mysterious hijacker who is threatening to kill a passenger every 20 minutes unless his ransom demand is met. The movie looks just as crazy as Collet-Serra and Neeson's previous collaboration, Unknown, but this outing could be a bit more fun due to the setting and the fact that you now have Neeson bringing his bad-assery to the friendly skies.

Born in Russia and raised in Tel Aviv, Bar Paly came to Hollywood and immediately landed a series of roles on top television series before appearing in Pain & Gain. The actress turns in a hilarious and critically-praised performance as a Romanian-born stripper who naively believes the Sun Gym Gang (Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie) are government agents on a dangerous, top-secret mission. As the movie makes its way to Blu-ray this week, we caught up with Bar to chat with her about the film. Check out our exclusive interview, and then be sure to check out the film this labor day weekend.

The apocalypse is coming to theaters and on VOD today in the form of Rapture-palooza. Only this time, Craig Robinson, Anna Kendrick, John Francis Daley, Rob Corddry, Paul Scheer, and many more are along for the ride.
Recently, I sat down with stars Rob Corddry and Rob Huebel to talk with them about the film, as well as some other random topics. Check out our little chats about clipping your toenails in Ihop, mustaches, and who the better doctor really is below.
When the Apocalypse actually happens and a billion people are raptured up to heaven, Lindsey (Kendrick) and her boyfriend Ben (Daley) are left behind in suburban Seattle. The young couple try their best to lead a normal life surrounded by talking locusts, blood rain showers, and pot-smoking wraiths. But when the Anti-Christ (Robinson) makes his home base in their neighborhood, Lindsey finds herself the object of his affection. »

Summer 2013 can’t start quickly enough for me when I’ll have some decent grosses to go gaga over. For now 2 newcomers debuted during a slow $84M weekend down -19% from last year. Pain & Gain (2,950 theaters) is #1 this weekend. My sources say it opened with $7.4M Friday – including $750K in Thursday evening/Friday midnights – and $7.7M Saturday for a $20M weekend. That’s so-so for the Paramount Pictures true crime comedy that had uneven reviews and a mediocre ‘C+’ CinemaScore from audiences – but only a $26M budget. Pain & Gain was part of Michael Bay’s 2-picture deal with Paramount that also included Transformers 4. Stars Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson deferred their compensation in return for big back ends. Surprising that the combination of them couldn’t open this pic with a bigger number. Hey, the studio encouraged Bay to do his best Coen »

Paramount Pictures' Pain & Gain comedy crime pic directed by Michael Bay turned in exactly what was expected from its box office debut with a $20 million weekend take. The film frontlined by Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie attracted an almost even spread of male and female viewers with 51% of males and 49% females attracted to the beefed-up film. Of those, 37% were under 25 years-old and 64% over 25. Anthony Mackie, Ed Harris, Rebel Wilson, Rob Corddry, Ken Jeong, Tony Shalhoub, Kurt Angle, William Haze, Bar Paly and Tony Plana also star in the film scripted by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. Pain & Gain Weekend Breakdown: - Friday: $7.5 million. - Saturday: $7.37 million. - Sunday: $5.13 million. »
Paramount Pictures' Michael Bay Film Pain & Gain grossed $7.5 million on Friday to top the charts. The film starring Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie heads to a $20 million-or-so weekend, claiming little prior to Disney's big boy summer opener Iron Man 3. Bay directs the comedy crime pic which debuted this weekend into 2,950 theaters, with scripting by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. Supporting cast includes Ed Harris, Rebel Wilson, Rob Corddry, Ken Jeong, Tony Shalhoub, Kurt Angle, William Haze, Bar Paly and Tony Plana. Reviews are here and there for this one, holding a mediocre 57% positive score at Rottentomatoes.com. The plot's a very intriguing one, and based on a true story of a group of personal trainers in 1990s Miami who, in pursuit of the American Dream, end up snagged in a criminal enterprise that goes awry. »
Michael Bay ‘Pain & Gain’ box office: Bay’s first non-Transformers movie to fail to crack $20m domestic this weekend? This Pain & Gain box-office post is a fully updated version of my previous Pain & Gain box-office article. According to Deadline.com, Pain & Gain grossed a disappointing $7m on Friday, including $750,000 from Thursday late-night showings. That’s down from an expected $9m early in the day and $8m early in the evening. Barring a major Saturday surge — which is highly unlikely at this stage — Pain & Gain will end up with about $18-19.5m at 3,277 North American venues by Sunday evening. Afternoon estimates had the Michael Bay-directed movie grossing as much as $26m, later downsized to a more modest $21m — and now, quite likely, less than $20m. (Photo: Michael Bay on the Pain & Gain set.) Now, Paramount was purportedly expecting Michael Bay’s first non-Transformers, non-Shia Labeouf movie in »

‘Pain & Gain’ box office: Michael Bay’s less-than-atrocious effort to open either modestly or strongly, depending on your context of choice (photo: Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson in ‘Pain & Gain’) Starring Ted and The Fighter‘s Mark Wahlberg and G.I. Joe: Retaliation and Fast Five‘s Dwayne Johnson, and directed by Michael Bay — he of the big, loud, dumb, and immensely successful Transformers movies — Pain & Gain is expected to open with less than $25m at 3,277 North American locations. In fact, Bay’s mix of crime thriller and "offbeat" humor, which had some critics groaning (47% approval rating and 5.7/10 average among Rotten Tomatoes‘ top critics), should not end the weekend much above the $20m mark if early, rough Friday estimates are accurate. According to Deadline.com, barring a major evening surge Pain & Gain likely collected $8m on Friday, including $750,000 from Thursday night screenings. Barring a major Saturday surge — not all that likely »

Aside from praising the Transformers director’s adaptation of the true story into a motion picture, the Pain & Gain stars also reveal their own harebrained ideas. Mark Wahlberg plays real-life bodybuilder turned extortionist Daniel Lugo in Pain & Gain, who masterminded the kidnapping and torture of a self-made millionaire in Miami in the 1990’s. Lugo then recruited other bodybuilders (Dwayne Johnson, Anthony Mackie) to join his knucklehead quick rich scheme, which becomes the basis of Michael Bay’s Pain & Gain.
Ken Jeong, Tony Shalhoub, and Bar Paly tell CineMovie’s Zay Zay they are all guilty of knucklehead ideas, of course, they don’t compare to the character’s insane plan in the movie. The Israeli-born actress Bar Paly,

We talked about what it was like to work with Michael Bay, his reaction to finding out the story was based on real events, the great work by all the actors, and more. In addition, as a huge fan of Galaxy Quest, I couldn't help but have him reminiscence about making that movie and how it's stood the test of time. »
