Michael Bay is spending his time in between Transformers making a film based on the true story of Miami bodybuilders who kidnapped a guy in order to make some easy money, and ended up enmeshed in a cycle of torture and murder.
And yet, on the poster for the movie, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Mark Wahlberg look like pretty OK guys. They’re the leads of Pain & Gain, and as such are the two guys who start that violent get rich scheme. We know things go wrong in the movie eventually — there’s a photo of the Rock doing things with a human body part that you don’t see all that often — but based on this poster you’d never know it.

Transformers 4 has a director, a release date and, most recently, added a big-time star. That last one is a first for the mega-blockbuster robot franchise and with it brings a whole new set of expectations and level of anticipation. The film will once again be directed by Michael Bay and will now officially star Mark Wahlberg. It was originally scheduled to be release June 27, 2014 but in a new interview, Bay not only put that date into question, he raised a few more points about where the franchise is doing.
Previously, he’s revealed that the film would continue the same story from the first three films, just with new characters. Bay even hinted at the film going off the planet Earth. Now he’s added to those statements in regards to Wahlberg and more. Transformers 4 will take place four years after the end of Dark of the Moon and will come out July 4, 2014.
