101 Films released the 1983 Tom Selleck sci-fi thriller Runaway on blu-ray in the UK for the first time on 2 March 2020. Movies In Focus is celebrating the release of this 1984 Michael Crichton directed film by giving away a copy of the blu-ray to a lucky reader of the site.
In the near future, a police officer specializes in malfunctioning robots. When a robot turns out to have been programmed to kill, he begins to uncover a homicidal plot to create killer robots… and his son becomes a target.
Somewhat overlooked compared to certain other dystopian, technological thrillers of the era, this enjoyable thriller boasts strong performances, a rare all-electronic score from Jerry Goldsmith (Star Trek: The Motion Picture), and stellar camera work from legendary Director of Photography John A. Alonzo (Chinatown, Scarface). Reappraisal from fans of Crichton, Selleck, and ’80s sci-fi in general, is long overdue.
