NEWARK (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie (R)  is channeling Hollywood in his public push for more cuts to state workers’ benefits.

The governor’s office released a movie trailer Tuesday for a mock summer blockbuster they titled, “No Pain. No Gain.”

The trailer features clips of a blustery Christie warning of an impending budget crisis, along with dramatic music and sound effects.

The clips are cut together with scenes of explosions, car chases and even a cameo by action star The Rock.

The release comes ahead the first of a series of summer town hall meetings at which Christie will discuss “the impending fiscal crisis the growing entitlements of pension, health benefits and debt services are causing.”

A spokesman for Christie said the video was made in-house and is similar to others the office has produced.
