Taking a lighthearted stab at the upcoming California gubernatorial recall
election, Sci Fi Channel will "recall" a previously scheduled Arnold
Schwarzenegger movie marathon set for Aug. 24.

Sci Fi will pull such movies as TheRunning Man, Terminator
2: Judgment Day
and Total Recall until after the Oct. 7 election, in
which Schwarzenegger is running to replace current state Gov. Gray Davis.

Although not obligated under federal rules to give equal time to political
candidates, Sci Fi decided nevertheless to pull the films until after the
special election.

Sci Fi will replace the films with three California-themed disaster movies:
Volcano: Fire on the Mountain, Inferno and Ice.

FX has also reportedly pulled all Schwarzenegger movies from its
lineup.
