Neil Best leaves no stone unturned in the world of sports media.

The jacked-up Mark Wahlberg

Three personal trainers in Miami in the 1990s get into hijinks in this action comedy starring Dwayne Johnson, Mark Wahlberg, Ed Harris, Rob Corddry, Anthony Mackie, Bar Paly, Tony Shalhoub, Rebel Wilson and Ken Jeong. In theaters April 2013

The connection between sports media and the trailer for "Pain and Gain" may be tangential at best, but hey, movies are a form of media and personal trainers are a form of sports fitness.

Plus, this movie includes "The Rock," oops, we mean Dwayne Johnson, formerly and somewhat currently of WWE fame.

It also features the most pumped-up version of Mark Wahlberg we've seen, and that includes his days as Vince Papale in "Invincible" and as "Marky Mark" in his days as a 1990s rapper curling cement blocks in the "Good Vibrations" video.

Give it a look above and you'll be running around saying "I gotta get a pump" at least twice in the next hour. The movie comes out in April 2013.
