Commando Facts You Never Knew
It doesn't matter if you're a mercenary, a Green Beret, or a small army: if you mess with Arnold's kid, you're going down. That's right, it's Commando! Let off some steam as we talk about one of the best action movies ever. Here we'll take a look at 10 things you never knew about Commando.

It was written for Gene Simmons.

Commando was originally conceived as a vehicle for none other than Gene Simmons. Despite the critical beating taken by Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park, the Demon still had the acting bug going into the '80s. He played the villain in Tom Selleck's Runaway, turned up in an episode of Miami Vice, and played a radio DJ in one of MovieWeb's favorite cult films, Trick Or Treat. Simmons actually turned down Commando, which was co-written by his friends Matthew Weisman and Jeph Loeb, who is now the head of Marvel Television.

Godless” is the smart western that nobody wanted when it was a two-hour movie. Scott Frank (“A Walk Among the Tombstones”) spent 12 years hearing “no” to his drama about a small town that lost all of its men to a mining disaster. However, once it became a limited series, Netflix jumped at the opportunity.

Frank has long been known as a hot screenwriter, in a career that stretches from Kenneth Branagh’s “Dead Again” in 1991 to Oscar-nominated turns for Steven Soderbergh’s 1998 “Out of Sight” and last year’s “Logan.” However, he never expected to become the showrunner of a sprawling TV series.

“I could watch eight movies all day for the price of a ticket and candy,” said Frank. As a kid growing up in northern California in the 1960s, his mom would drop him off at the theater for marathon movie sessions. That’s where he discovered Sergio Leone

Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin Call James Corden Ugly in Late Night Sketch

Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin Call James Corden Ugly in Late Night Sketch
Ryan Reynolds and James Brolin are out promoting Deadpool 2, which is now currently in theaters and breaking R-rated box office records in its first 24 hours. In a recent press stop, the two actors appeared on The Late Show with James Corden for a pre-taped spoof of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly in which Corden was deemed the Ugly by Reynolds and Brolin. James Corden is not happy about the decision, but Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin insist that he's the ugly one of the group.

The bromance of Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin has developed quite a bit since production started on Deadpool 2. The two would playfully poke fun of each other on social media and have been doing the same in person on talk shows. And now, they've dragged James Corden into their inner circle, but only if he's the ugly one in the group.

Action-Packed First Trailer For The Magnum P.I. Reboot

I'll be honest, I wasn't too thrilled about CBS rebooting Magnum P.I. They cast Jay Hernandez in the role of Thomas Magnum and even though he's no Tom Selleck, this series actually looks like it could be good! This first trailer is certainly action-packed!

I also included trailers for the upcoming CBS series FBI and the Murphy Brown reboot in case you're interested in watching those. Check out the trailer and let us know if any of these shows interest you. Does Magnum P.I. look better than what you expected?

Magnum Pi: Why the Mustache and Comma Are Missing from the CBS Reboot

Everything old is new again -- well, almost. On May 11th, CBS ordered the Magnum Pi TV show reboot to series. In addition to updating the famous private investigator's backstory -- he's now a retired Navy Seal and veteran of the Us conflict in Afghanistan -- the new production has made some cosmetic changes to this Magnum adaption. Along with original star Tom Selleck, gone is Magnum's mustache, as well as the comma between Magnum and P.I., in the show's title. At today's Upfront presentation to advertisers, reporters queried the network's president of entertainment, Kelly Kahl, about those decisions. Check out the answer, below. A CBS action-adventure crime drama, the new Magnum Pi stars Jay Hernandez, Perdita Weeks, Stephen Hill, and Zachary Knighton. Weeks, as pictured below, is playing Juliet Higgins, an updated, female version of

Why CBS Killed the Comma for Its ‘Magnum Pi’ Reboot

CBS’ new “Magnum P.I.” is a reboot of 1980s series “Magnum, P.I.” There are two distinct differences in this version: 1) A goatee instead of a mustache for the titular character, and 2) No comma in the title.

CBS Entertainment President Kelly Kahl explained both decisions Wednesday morning during the network’s annual pre-upfront breakfast with reporters.

“We debated the ‘Magnum’ thing for quite a bit, believe it or not,” Kahl said about the latter. “There was a comma before, we’re taking the comma out this time to streamline things.”

“I think there’s a little science behind it, actually,” he continued. “In the new world of searching, commas are not your friends.”

Perhaps that explains rival ABC’s issue with the one-and-done “Alex, Inc.” (It definitely does not.)
