Comparing ‘The Running Man’ to Today’s America

I’m not saying I agree with this, but it was interesting and entertaining to watch since I referenced the film not too long ago.

But I shall state that I’m positive Richard Dawson has kissed more women that our future president. Though, Trump probably leads him in “another” category.

When Arnold Schwarzenegger sci-fi film The Running Man first premiered in 1987, it presented a dark vision of the US in the year 2017: economically depressed, ruled by the military, and obsessed with a reality TV show. It seemed far-fetched at the time, even to its creators. But on the eve of reality TV-star-turned President Donald Trump’s inauguration, it seems more timely and plausible than ever. Watch all the parallels between this retro sci-fi film and reality in our inaugural episode of Future Shock.
