This biopic film tells the inspirational true story of brothers Joe Weider (Tyler Hoechlin) and Ben Weider (Aneurin Barnard), icons who founded the modern fitness industry. Against the most extreme of odds that include poverty, anti-Semitic sentiments and mounting pressures from the medical community, they were able to successfully build a business empire, start a global fitness movement, and even discover superstar bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger (played by Calum Von Moger). Directed by George Gallo. ~ Marvin Royce Moreno, Rovi
