RUNNING MAN, THE (1987)
Following worldwide economic collapse, the United States in 2019 is a totalitarian police state. The opiate of the masses is government-sanctioned TV game shows where prisoners fight for their lives as millions cheer. At the time of its release in 1987, the film was seen as a misstep for rising star Arnold Schwarzenegger — but who's laughing now? Based on the novel by Stephen King, this dire vision of the future is a campy and compelling dystopian tale. The fun cast includes Richard Dawson as the sleazy game show host, Jesse Ventura and Jim Brown as "stalkers" of the contestants, musicians Mick Fleetwood and Dweezil Zappa as rebel insurgents, plus María Conchita Alonso and Yaphet Kotto. DIR Paul Michael Glaser; SCR Steven E. de Souza, from the novel by Stephen King; PROD George Linder, Tim Zinnemann. U.S., 1987, color, 101 min. RATED R
