Uncork’d Entertainment has released the first clip from their upcoming crazy thriller The Jurassic Games, best described as The Running Man with dinosaurs in it. In the movie, a wrongfully imprisoned man is sentenced with nine other criminals to play the titular virtual reality game as punishment (yeah, I wish the dinos were really there too, but the “computer” excuse is basically to cover the minimal CGI budget).
In the new clip, two people are stuck together courtesy of a VERY LONG chain, with an immense T-Rex roaring between them. The only way to escape the challenge unscathed is to find the key to their ankle cuffs hidden somewhere in the sand. The female manages to pull it off, but the game is heavily rigged, and this doesn’t solve her problems at all.
Every year, 10 of the world’s most lethal death row criminals are chosen to compete for their freedom in The Jurassic Games, a television show where contestants must survive against a variety of ferocious dinosaurs. The players all die gruesomely in the game zone except for one, the last one standing, the winner, who is granted not only his freedom, but fame and fortune. Survive the dinosaurs. Survive each other. Survive…The Jurassic Games.
The Jurassic Games stars Ryan Merriman (Final Destination 3) and Perrey Reeves (”Entourage”), and was directed by Ryan Bellgardt. It’s coming to VOD platforms June 12, and DVD July 3. The full trailer lies in wait below….
