Color Palette: The Running Man

'Color Palette: The Running Man'

Our June theme of the month, Escape, continues with The Running Man (1987).

The warm sunset tones of The Running Man are an essential part of the film’s look. In this moment, as Ben (Arnold Schwarzenegger) learns that his friends will suffer his terrible fate with him, the warm Game Show-esque lighting takes on a sinister, expressionistic mood.

The Running Man is available on Blu-ray and DVD.
