The guy playing Arnold is Austrailian bodybuilder Calum Von Moger. He was featured in the documentary Generation Iron 2.

Bodybuilding is a smokescreen for gay sex.

Anyone who lifts weights is queer.

Do I need a reason? Mr. Kupfer was right, you know... I do love a good joke and this is the best ever, a joke on the children. But there's a better reason... you don't really know much about Halloween...

Weider was a huckster and chronic liar but he was a great promoter (like Vince McMahon). He would bash Nautilus machines in his magazines because he considered them to be the competition. Muscle & Fitness is chock full of misinformation and supplement false advertising. It is disputable whether Weider did more harm than good by existing but there can be little doubt that he and Arnold got more people lifting weights than anyone else.

Well, he recognized the star power potential in Arnold before just about anyone else did, and he never tried to fuck him over (far as I know), so, at the very least, he was a smart businessman.

BTW, Kevin Durand is a great actor.  That whole cast looks to be very, very good.

Seriously, though, I wonder how many bodybuilding movies are there?

I mean, other than 'Pumping Iron'?

I just watched a few on Netflix. I'll write up a quick review. They're all documentaries. Pain & Gain is the only narrative film that comes to mind and it's more about crime than lifting or competing.

BIGGER FASTER STRONGER is a good one, but I don't think it's about body building per say.

That was more of a critique of athletics and the pharmaceutical industry around it, was it not?

I think it was about a pro wrestler trying to make it (from what I vaguely remember).
