The Running Man’s set-up: “By 2017 the world economy has collapsed. Food, natural resources, and oil are in short supply. A police state, divided into paramilitary zones, rules with an iron hand.” Come see 2017 out with this wild and sadly prescient Ahnold-starring satire of reality television, game shows, cultural sociopathy, police violence, and totalitarian rule! “Holds up a shocking reflection of where we actually stand as a society in 2017.”—Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Craze
