Adapted from a Stephen King novel, this ’80s sci-fi favorite is set in 2019, two years after economic collapse has plunged the United States into totalitarianism. Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as a police helicopter pilot framed for a massacre and forced to appear in the popular reality TV show “The Running Man,” in which convicts are pursued by heavily armed hunters. As the show’s host, Richard Dawson (of “Family Feud” fame) is at his smarmy best; María Conchita Alonso, rocker Mick Fleetwood and wrestler Jesse Ventura help round out the cast.
