A tense first clip has been released for The Jurassic Games and it shows a couple of people facing up to a T-rex. If cheesy action and dinosaurs are your thing, then it looks like this could be one of your favourite films of the year.
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.
I’m all for B-movies that are so good that they’re bad, and hopefully The Jurassic Games can soar as high as Sharknado with its tongue-in-cheek humour and ridiculousness. Hopefully it won’t take itself too seriously.
The Jurassic Games is the third film from Emmy Award-winning director Ryan Bellgardt (Gremlin, Army of Frankensteins) stars Katie Burgess, Perrey Reeves, Adam Hampton and Ryan Merriman.
The Jurassic Games will be available on Digital on 12th June and DVD 3rd July from Uncork’d Entertainment.
