The Running Man is a 1987 American dystopian action film directed by Paul Michael Glaser and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, María Conchita Alonso, Richard Dawson, Yaphet Kotto, and Jesse Ventura.
The film’s story about a television show where convicted criminal “runners” must escape death at the hands of professional killers is very loosely based on the 1982 novel of the same name written by Stephen King and published under the pseudonym Richard Bachman
The opening titles and introductory text are typeset in Bessellen (VGC, 1973), which previously appeared in The Terminator. The main title and Schwarzenegger credit is typeset in Steve (Letraset, 1983), in an oblique style with white outline.
Various video displays feature what looks to be Eurostile. The titling for “Climbing for Dollar$” is set in Cooper Black. What looks to be Orbit-B, with some slight modifications, is used for the “Killian is Lying to You” text, and Data 70 appears on various props throughout the film. The end titles are set in Helvetica.
