MTV: Box-Office Preview

This weekend, the Rock and Mark Wahlberg are staged to outmuscle Tom Cruise.

"Pain & Gain" puts director Michael Bay back in his "Bad Boys" buddy action-comedy zone. Wahlberg and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson star as bodybuilders-turned-criminals, based on real events in the late '90s. The movie is expected to collect over $20 million this weekend, which should be enough to beat last weekend's #1 film, "Oblivion."CLICK HERE.
