Mark Wahlberg doesn’t want to wear sweatpants anymore.

At least, that’s what his character Daniel Lugo says in the new action comedy Pain & Gain.

On Wednesday, Paramount Pictures unveiled the brand new trailer for the Michael Bay film, based on the true story of a group of Miami bodybuilders who get involved in a kidnapping plot.

Wahlberg and his bulging biceps are in good company. Dwayne Johnson, Anthony Mackie, Tony Shalhoub and their respective muscles also star in the film, along with Rebel Wilson, Ed Harris and Ken Jeong.

Pain & Gain is Bay’s first foray into dark comedy, but from this first look, there are still plenty of explosions, fast cars and testosterone to go around.

Wahlberg, who will reteam with Bay in 2013 for the next Transformers movie, recently told Collider about the chemistry he had with his blockbuster of a director on set.

“We kind of complemented each other throughout the entire process, what he does and what I do and what we were able to do together, and then after that I was like, ‘Dude we gotta work together again,’ and he was like, ‘Well I got a project, you interested?’”

Pain & Gain opens in theaters Apr. 26, 2013.
