Trivia: As Killian is addressing the crew, watch the end credits on the monitor over his left shoulder. The entire list is totally nonsensical.

Movie Nut

Trivia: When Killian is talking about the next possible contestant, he points out he's 120 pounds and wouldn't last 30 seconds. This is somewhat making fun of how they used Arnold Schwarzenegger to portray Ben Richards. In the book "The Running Man" (which has a very different structure), Ben Richards is described as "scrawny", the complete opposite of Arnold.

Trivia: Ben says to Killian "I'll be back", his famous line from The Terminator.

Trivia: In the broadcast version, Killian tells Tony to give the Justice Department an evasive answer. "Tell the to take a hike." In the original cut, he said "Tell them to go F- themselves."

Movie Nut

Plot hole: In the unedited video footage of the helicopter incident shown to the crowd, the last shot of Arnie getting knocked out is seen from his perspective and as such could never have been filmed by any camera.
