Sam Riley in 13

Russian roulette has been seen regularly in popular culture since first appearing in a 1950 episode of Bugs Bunny. The violent and risky game is naturally cinematic and exudes tension on the big screen.

The Deer Hunter most famously used it to create one of the most iconic scenes ever put on film. As the thrilling Russian roulette focused new film '13' is released we take a look at the Deer Hunter and the other best uses of it over the years.

- The Deer Hunter (1978)

The favorite entertainment of the Russian Colonel in charge of the prison was to have the inmates play Russian Roulette. Only his unbelievable luck and survivor spirit helped Moldovan live through his detention. Out of the prison the ex-policeman joins an international Russian Roulette illegal gaming circuit.

Michael Cimino's Vietnam drama was a smash hit in the late '70s and rightly deserving of its 5 Academy Awards.

The most famous part of the film is the intense Russian roulette scene which sees Robert De Niro and Christopher Walken's characters forced to play Russian roulette by the Vietcong. The superb acting and claustrophobic nature of the set gave the piece an electric edge which resonated deeply with viewers.

It's an incredibly intense scene. The Deer Hunter was the film to put Russian roulette firmly in the public imagination.

- Leon (1994)

The Directors cut or 'Version International' of the now classic hitman film Leon features a tense Russian roulette piece.

Various scenes that developed the relationship between Mathilda and Léon were cut from the original edit after test audiences in LA saw an early version. This particular scene shows Natalie Portman's Mathilda threatening to shoot herself play playing Russian roulette.

She does this to try and persuade Jean Reno's Léon character to teach her to become a killer. It's an effective scene and once again shows the dramatic potential of this device in cinema.

- LA Confidential (1997)

Curtis Hanson's masterful crime thriller features a Russian roulette element as a key piece of character development.

After Guy Pierce's sensible detective fails to get information out of three criminals in an interrogation, Russell Crowe's unhinged character 'Bud' White storms into the room. He proceeds to force one key suspect to play a one-sided version of Russian roulette with a loaded gun.

White pulls the trigger three times before he is satisfied and the audience learn what a uncompromising and extreme character he is in the process.

- The Way Of The Gun (2000)

Christopher McQuarrie followed his triumph of writing The Usual Suspects with the tough as nails and underrated The Way of the Gun.

The plot follows a couple of criminal drifters as they get swept into a kidnapping situation that spirals out of control. The Russian roulette scene focuses on a criminal played by talented character actor Geoffrey Lewis. The doomed mercenary decides to play Russian roulette with himself as a method of committing suicide.

After a failed first attempt he is about to try again when he finally picks up his ringing phone only to tell the person at the other end he's 'Not at all' busy. It's a humorous end to another tense use of Russian roulette.

- Starsky And Hutch (2004)

The playful Todd Phillips version of Starsky and Hutch features an a Russian roulette element in one of the funniest parts of the film.

The scene in question sees the police duo enter Chinatown looking for information on their case. During the conversation Starsky quickly offers Russian roulette as a way to get the leads he needs.

'All right, you wanna play games? I got a game for you, Chau!' The idea swiftly backfires on Starsky as he fails to understand the rules of the game. This is perhaps the funniest use of Russian roulette yet seen in the movies.

- 13 (2012)

13 is a full-throttle new thriller focused on the fictional underground ‘sport’ of Russian roulette. Fiercely organized and ferociously secret, the game attracts depraved gamblers and desperate men.

In the film we follow one naïve young player (played by Sam Riley) who mistakenly becomes a numbered participant in this deadly world of violence and chance. This is writer/director Géla Babluani’s white-knuckle American remake of his 13 Tzameti, the film that swept Europe, shocked Sundance and now translates as one of the most edge-of-your-seat thrillers of the year.

The film also has an amazing cast including Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke, Ray Winstone, Sam Riley, 50 Cent and Michael Shannon.

13 is out on DVD and Blu-ray on Monday 8th October

Russian Roulettegraffiti Movies & Documentaries 2017

Russian Roulette is an American game show created and executive produced by Gunnar Wetterberg that ran for two seasons on Game Show Network from June 3, 2002 to June 13, 2003. The show was hosted by Mark L. Walberg and announced by Burton Richardson.

Gameplay[edit]

The Russian Roulette set consists of a circle with six trapdoors (referred to as 'drop zones' by the host), four of which are occupied by the episode's contestants.

First round[edit]

The four contestants are each given $150 at the beginning of the episode, and questions for the first round are valued on that same amount.

The number of red lights on the field indicates the number of active drop zones, starting with one drop, and another drop zone is added for each succeeding question (up to five drops starting at question five) and increasing the odds that the contestant will be eliminated after providing an incorrect answer.

One contestant is shown a question and must challenge an opponent to answer it. The challenged contestant is then shown three possible answers and has 10 seconds to choose the right answer. A correct answer awards the contestant $150 and becomes the challenger for the next question; if the contestant answers incorrectly or runs out of time, he/she forfeits his/her money to the challenger and must play Russian Roulette by pulling the handle in front of him/her to rotate the drop zones in play around the six trapdoors. If a drop zone lands on that contestant's spot, the trapdoor opens and they drop through the floor and are eliminated from the game. Otherwise, the contestant remains in the game and becomes the challenger for the next question.

The round ends when a contestant drops and is eliminated. If time expires before this happens, one contestant is eliminated at random via one final handle pull at the center of the stage. The contestant with the highest score is granted immunity from the drop by coming to the center of the stage to pull the handle; if there is a tie for the lead, the host pulls the lever, with all four contestants in danger of elimination. The eliminated contestant's money (if any) is distributed evenly among the remaining three contestants.

Second and third rounds[edit]

The second round is played similarly to the first, with the three remaining contestants answering questions valued at $200 each, and questions now having four possible answers. In round three, the two remaining contestants face off with questions valued at $300 (season 1) or $250 (season 2). Play is similar to rounds one and two, except that the contestant who first hears the question may elect to answer it themselves or challenge their opponent. After round three, the last contestant standing keeps all their money and goes to the bonus round, while the runner-up drops automatically. If the runner-up had money after dropping in the third round, that money is given to the last contestant standing. If there is a tie at the end of round three, one final random Russian Roulette spin is played to determine the winner.

Bonus round[edit]

The winning contestant is moved to the top-left zone and has 60 seconds to answer five 'brain-teaser' questions correctly (ten multiple-choice questions of three answers in Season Two). These usually consist of anagrams and jumbled words (unscrambling letters to form the answer based on clues given), math problems and general-knowledge questions. The timer begins ticking while the host asks the first question. After every ten seconds, one drop zone opens on the play field. If time runs out or the contestant at any time gives an incorrect answer, he or she drops, but receives $500 ($300 in season two) for every correct answer. The contestant has the option to pass on a question and return to it if time permits. In Season One, the contestant was required to begin each answer with the phrase 'My answer is..' so that thinking aloud would not be mistaken for an answer, but it is no longer required on Season two.

For answering all the questions correctly, the contestant's winnings for this round is augmented to $10,000; the contestant is given an option to risk $10,000 (winnings prior to the bonus round are not affected) for one final game of Russian Roulette for a grand prize of $100,000, with the number of drop zones opening during the previous segment used as the number of drop zones for the final game.

At the end of the show's run, three contestants had survived the final drop and won the $100,000 grand prize.

International versions[edit]

On all versions of Russian Roulette outside of the U.S., U.K., Argentina, Portugal, and Poland (in season two), there are also displays of the contestants' heart rates on the screen (examples include Russia's, Poland's (season one), and Hong Kong's versions), and most versions even have the contestants themselves asking questions to their opponents. There is also a camera underneath each of the trapdoors to catch footage of the contestant dropping from another angle. Some may also have a maximum time limit of 15 seconds instead of 10 to answer questions. The Polish version has 30 seconds to answer the question in season one and 20 seconds in season two. Most versions of the show (except for the versions in the U.S., Greece, Taiwan and India) run for an hour rather than a half-hour. As of 2013, there are no versions of the show still in production internationally. However, China's religional broadcaster Shandong TV revived the show in Spring 2015 in substitution of the previous edition using the format of The Million Pound Drop, this version using a format that a little different to other ones – and the daily prize fund always starts at RMB¥50,000, and each correct answer before the final round earns RMB¥1,000 to the final pot. The Chinese version is broadcast live on weekdays, and runs for 65 minutes (including commercials).[citation needed]
