Michael Bay’s directorial foray away from big explosions and back into R-rated comedy-action films, Pain & Gain, features three dumb as a rock protagonists and a lot of wacky hijinks, resulting in an entertaining 129 minutes of film. Paramount Home Media Distribution is bringing the movie on to Blu-ray and DVD on August 27, and to celebrate the release, we are giving away one awesome grand prize related to the film that includes a Blu-ray copy of Pain & Gain signed by Mark Wahlberg and a few other goodies.

Fitness is at the heart of the movie, which stars Wahlberg as Daniel Lugo, an enterprising young convict who believes in bodybuilding perfection, as well as getting what he wants, even if it means committing crimes. He teams up with Adrian Doorbal and Paul Doyle (Anthony Mackie and Dwayne Johnson) to extort money from a wealthy Miami citizen, but committing the perfect crime takes both brains and brawn, and without the former, the plan begins to go awry almost immediately.

Since the backdrop of the movie is all about fitness, Paramount Home Media Distribution is also throwing in a duffle bag for all of your gym and traveling needs, as well as a bullet blender. All of these items combine for one pretty awesome grand prize pack, which you could get your hands on, should you follow our rules and enter the Cinema Blend Pain & Gain giveaway.


Entering is easy. Just click on over to our Facebook Giveaway Post, "Like" our page if you haven't already, and then leave a comment on the page telling us what your least favorite machine at the gym is and why! The giveaway ends at 11 p.m. ET on Sunday, August 25. If you enter, please make sure we can contact you via Facebook. If you have it set to where we can't contact you, your prize will go to somebody else.

The winner will be notified via Facebook direct message and asked to provide their mailing addresses (no P.O. boxes please). Only U.S. residents over the age of 18 may apply. Prize packs will be mailed directly to the winner. No purchase necessary. Failure to comply with the rules will result in disqualification and subsequent mockery. Good luck!

If you don’t want to go through the hassle of trying to win a copy of the film, it’s out next Tuesday, and Amazon already has a pretty sweet deal on the Blu-ray set if you pre-order a copy. Additionally, you can learn more about Lugo's philosophy over at Areyouadoer.com and more about the release at Fitness Doesn't Wait.
