I had the same problem. Make sure you have an internet connection and than neither windows nor third party firewall are blocking the game. Then, let the launcher update the game, and in the loading screen, hit start to open Rockstar Social Club. If it doesn't open, that is the problem, Social Club is closed. Try reinstalling it. And, of course, create a a Social Club account.

I don't own the game on Steam. I bought on an online brazillian game store named Nuuvem (I'm brazillian btw).

The first thing that the game asks me to do is to press "ENTER" before the very first loading screen, then it says "Iniciando" ("starting" in english) and it never stops. It looks like it's loading but it's not.

What I understood by what luquiboyn said is that , by pressing "ENTER", a RG Social Club login screen should appear. I'll try redownloading RG Social Club and see what happens, then I come back here and tell you

Thank you, guys

I can't unninstal RG Social Club without uninstalling Max Payne 3 as well. And I already tried reinstalling Max Payne 3 many times, so that's not the problem.

I am contacting Rockstar Games too.

I wrote to Rockstar on Saturday, and I solved my problem by myself and I havenn't received any answer, so good luck :) 
When you press enter, does it appear a little message of Social Club on top right of the screen?

So that was exactly my problem. The game doesn't load because Social Club is not started, so you can't be logged in. I've solved it, but I'm not sure what was the reason. I only change some visual settings with RadeonPro, and sometimes it fails again, but I don't know which one is causing the problem.
