'Predator' is not only one of Arnold Schwarzenegger's best movies, it's one of the best sci-fi/action movies of all time, putting the musclebound action hero up against an unstoppable alien hunter. The design of the Predator is so iconic and the overall film's reputation so strong that many people don't realize that this was originally a very different movie. So different that Jean-Claude Van Damme was originally supposed to play the alien bad guy!

Channing Tatum has "the mindset to master the most epic of splits" ... or so he thinks. Messing around on the set of his upcoming '21 Jump Street' sequel, '22 Jump Street,' the star, dressed as his character Jenko, attempted to replicate Jean-Claude Van Damme's now-famous split from the Volvo commercial. So how did he fare?

There are few aging action stars as downright weird and lovable as Jean-Claude Van Damme, but he's gone and done something that transcends not only his career, but every major accomplishment in the history of the human race. Mr. Van Damme, known for his incredible physicality, but has topped it all. He's gone and pulled off "the most epic of splits." This you absolutely need to see to believe.

Released in 1988, 'Bloodsport' gave Jean-Claude Van Damme one of his first starring roles and introduced the world to his insane action skills. The film follows Frank Dux (based on the real-life American martial artist of the same name), who goes to Hong Kong to participate in the Kumite -- an illegal underground martial arts tournament in which competitors use freestyle techniques and are eliminated after a single round.
It's been 25 years since the film was released, so join us as we look back at the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.

Once upon a time, we would have turned up our noses at the thought of an impending remake of 'Bloodsport' and said something like, "Is there no originality left in Hollywood these days? A Jean-Claude Van Damme film? Really?" These days, the news of an impending 'Bloodsport' remake can barely get a shrug out of us. But yes, they're remaking 'Bloodsport.'

Look, let's not pretend this movie is something it's not. But for what it is -- the sixth film in the 'Universal Soldier' franchise (but only the third in current continuity) -- it's pretty damn good; muscular, atmospheric and surprisingly scary. With 'Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning' and the previous installment, 'Regeneration,' nascent action auteur John Hyams has resuscitated a long-dead franchise and restored it to its former glory, an appropriate fate for a series about soldiers killed in action and then brought back to life as super-powered warriors.

'The Expendables' films give Dolph Lundgren and Jean Claude Van Damme something neither have had in a long time: Films that play in American theaters. That doesn't mean they haven't been working, though with the death of most chain video stores, their wares are harder to find. Both join fellow 'The Expendables 2' alum Scott Adkins for a follow up to their 1992 film 'Universal Soldier' in this 'Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning' trailer.
