This feature from Universal Pictures opens exclusively in cinemas Friday, May 3.

With Hollywood currently focused on sequels and reboots, it’s almost impossible to be surprised by any property being remade for modern audiences. Yet it is admittedly unexpected to see the popular but hardly iconic 1980s T.V. show The Fall Guy being given a studio remake. Truthfully, it’s hard to imagine the public demanding that the show be brought back and adapted for the big screen.

For those unfamiliar with the show, this is a very loose adaptation of the original program. But, in the end, that’s a good thing. The alterations, fresh...

This feature from Lionsgate Films opens exclusively at theaters on Friday, April 19.
