"McBain" was originally the name of an action movie character on The Simpsons, played by an analogue of Arnold Schwarzenegger. His appearance on The Simpsons predates the release of the film McBain, and apart from the name, the film has very little relation to the character.
Nonetheless, the producers of the movie refused to give 20th Century Fox and Matt Groening's production team clearance to use the name "McBain". In order to continue using the character, the character resorted to using the name of the actor portraying McBain, Rainier Wolfcastle (the name "McBain" does continue to be used throughout the Simpsons universe, to refer to the character played by Wolfcastle).
The movie was released on videocassette in the United States in 1992, by MCA/Universal Home Video, and in Canada that same year, by C/FP Video. Years later, Goodtimes released the budget tape of the movie. Synapse Films will release McBain on Blu Ray, from a newly restored 2K transfer. Rifftrax released a video on demand version of the movie, on January 25, 2013, including the running mocking commentary by stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000, including Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett.
