Despite a bleak critical reception for last week’s new releases, both of the new films made a decent showing for themselves in the box office, if not fantastic (or even consistent with their predicted weekend revenues). Pain and Gain made its way to the top spot this weekend, earning $20 million.
collider.com – Opening this weekend is director Michael Bay’s fantastic dark comedy Pain & Gain. The film is based on a crazy true story and stars Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson as two bodybuilders who get caught up in an extortion ring and kidnapping scheme that goes terribly wrong. Pain and Gain also stars Anthony Mackie, Rebel Wilson, Tony Shalhoub, Ed Harris, Rob Corddry, Ken Jeong, and Bar Paly. 7 weeks 4 days ago via donnieyen

This weekend is looking pretty dismal in terms of new releases—if you’re looking for cheap action thrills, or a trite rom-com, you’re set for the weekend; if you’re looking for genuine quality, you will most likely be disappointed. Coming out today is the latest from Michael Bay, Pain and Gain—a violent romp about indulgence, crime, improbably athletic thieves, and the American dream.
