The movie twins had a hilarious plot that made the film an immediate success. Vincent (DeVito) and Julius (Schwarzenegger) play fraternal twins who were part of a science experiment and were separated at birth. Their birth mother wasn’t told about Vincent, and was led to believe that Julius had died. Julius eventually learns about Vincent and manages to track him down. Once they are reunited, the two get into crazy situations requiring their particular skill sets. The predicaments they get into are simply hilarious.

twins was a huge success when it hit the box office, earning a$11 million in its first weekend in theatres. It was the number one film in the US upon its release and held its spot at the top for two weekends following opening. It went on to gross $112 domestically, $216 internationally, and was the fifth highest-grossing film in the US to be released in 1988.

He expressed his interest while speaking on a panel at Celebrity Fan Fest in Los Angeles. Momoa was telling the audience about his love for twins when the idea of ​​a possible remake came up.
