(June 15, 2020—Los Angeles, CA)—Varèse Sarabande Records is
thrilled to announce the upcoming special release of The Running Man
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Deluxe Edition) by
GRAMMY®-winning composer Harold Faltermeyer (Beverly Hills Cop, Top
Gun, Cop Out and the upcoming film Top Gun: Maverick). The Deluxe
Edition version will be available digitally and released on LP for the
first time on August 14, 2020. The LP version is available for
pre-order today, June 15, on VareseSarabande.com (

).

In the year 2019, America is a totalitarian state where the favorite
television program is The Running Man—a game show in which prisoners
must run to freedom to avoid a brutal death. Having been made a
scapegoat by the government, an imprisoned Ben Richards (Arnold
Schwarzenegger) has the opportunity to make it back to the outside
again by being a contestant on the deadly show, although the twisted
host, Damon Killian (Richard Dawson) has no intention of letting him
escape.

The original (1987) 17-track soundtrack has been expanded to 35
tracks, which include additional music and unreleased and alternate
cues. The album was remastered from the original Paramount Pictures
sources. The package features original artwork, images from the film
and a booklet with extensive liner notes by film music journalist
Daniel Schweiger.

Harold Faltermeyer on this special deluxe edition release: “Scoring
The Running Man was a rather big challenge. After the urban and bouncy
score for Beverly Hills Cop, and the epic and heroic score for Top
Gun, I was facing a new territory. The Running Man needed a dark,
ominous sound design with a new sound library we had to create. It was
fun working on this movie and it‘s great to see that after all these
years, there is still a vivid interest. I was very delighted when I
heard that Varèse Sarabande would be releasing the entire score!”
