Paramount Home Media Distribution has officially announced that it will release a combo pack edition of director Michael Bay's (Bad Boys, The Rock) latest action film Pain & Gain (2013), starring Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Ed Harris, Anthony Mackie, and Rebel Wilson. The release will arrive on the market on August 27th.
Based on an unbelievable true story, Pain & Gain follows two bodybuilders in Florida whose lives change dramatically when they get caught up in an extortion ring and a kidnapping scheme.
The Blu-ray and DVD in the combo pack will host only the main feature. There are no supplemental features listed on the current press release.
Hard to believe a Michael Bay movie is getting nothing in terms of bonus material, especially since it's Bay's passion project that took him the better part of a decade to get made. Hopefully at least an audio commentary gets announced, otherwise this is gonna be a hugely disappointing release. The movie was solid but I wouldn't buy it without bonus features.
I live in Australia...i know this movie will bomb here. Why? Because they delayed the theatrical release to August and that's when the DVD/Blu-ray will become available. The rips will be available for download then.
