The Postman (1997) Set in 2013, after the war has destroyed most of USA, including the government. A solitary traveler is captured by a fascist military group called the Holnists led by Hitler-like General Bethlehem. When he escapes from the Holnists he finds an abandoned mail Jeep and uniform, and starts to travel through small cities, telling them he is a postman, a representative of the restored United States. No one believes him at first, but soon he has followers, and they start to prepare a revolt against Holnists.

More Movie Taglines:
  • It is 2013. War has crippled the Earth. Technology has been erased. Our only hope is an unlikely hero.
Movie Quote(s):
  • The Postman: Once more into the breach, my friends, once more. We'll close the wall with our dead. In peace, nothing so becomes a man as modesty and humility, but when the blast of war blows in our ears, then imitate the action of the tiger, summon up the blood, disguise fair nature with rage and lend the eye a terrible aspect.
  • Sheriff: You're nothing but a drifter who found a bag of mail.
  • Postman: The President's name... is Richard Starkey!
  • The Postman: Tell me something: how much mail can a dead Postman deliver?
  • The Postman: Wouldn't it be great if wars could be fought just by the assholes who started them?
Movie Trivia:
  • Behind-the-scenes images from location shooting were broadcast live over the Internet.
  • References to other Kevin Costner films: a mule is killed and Civil War battles (Dances with Wolves (1990)), and threatening to use a spoon as a weapon (Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991)).
  • The Postman's fake president was named "Richard Starkey", the real name of Ringo Starr.
  • Another Kevin Costner film reference: Costner's character being asked for his "seed," as in Waterworld (1995).
  • In the sequence where Kevin Costner's character names Richard Starkey (Ringo Starr) as President, he continues with another reference to The Beatles by telling the assembly "It's getting better. Getting better all the time" from the band's song "Getting Better".
