This futuristic-style poster with striking imagery is for the Brian Trenchard-Smith film Turkey Shoot (1983), which was renamed Escape 2000 for its September 1983 release in the US.

The retro computer font in lime green on this poster seems to be de rigueur for futuristic cinema, as is the computer-looking grid on which the characters are running.

But compared to other posters and promotional images for the same film, this poster is far more dynamic and more effectively telegraphs the time period in which the film is set.
