Quotes

Ben Richards: It's showtime.


Goofs

When Daemon Killian is killed at the end of the movie. He is placed in the main rocket chair that sends him to the beginning of the maze. At the end of the maze, there is not net so he falls to the concrete ground due to the force and speed of the rocket and hits a side wall and again to the floor. The next shot you see him again on the ramp and this time flying straight into the wall on his own picture and Ben Richards says that hit the spot. He should have been sliding straight into the wall not fly in it. Or again fly in it straight out of the maze but never hit the floor and re-ramp.


Crazy Credits

Announcer's voiceover: "The Running Man has been brought to you by: Breakaway Paramilitary Uniforms, Orthopure Pure Procreation Pills, and Cadre Cola - it hits the spot. Promotional considerations paid for by Kelton Flame Throwers, Wainwright Electrical Launchers, and Hammond & Gage Chain Saws. Damon Killian's wardrobe by Chez Antoine, 19th-century craftsmanship for the 21st-century man. Cadre trooper and studio guard's sidearms provided by Colchester, the pistol of patriots. Remember, tickets for the ICS studio tour are always available for class A citizens in good standing. If you'd like to be a contestant on The Running Man, send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to ICS Talent Hunt, care of your local affiliate, and then go out and do something really despicable! I'm Phil Hilton. Good night and take care!"
