Remember THE JURASSIC DEAD, the movie we told you about here that’s coming to cash in on that other JURASSIC movie? Well, one more dinosaur mashup movie is on the way to compete with it! Read on for the info, trailer and poster.

Uncork’d Entertainment has announced that THE JURASSIC GAMES will be available on VOD June 12 and DVD July 3. Written and directed by Ryan Bellgardt (ARMY OF FRANKENSTEINS), it stars Ryan Merriman (FINAL DESTINATION 3), Perrey Reeves (CHILD’S PLAY 3), Adam Hampton and Katie Burgess. The synopsis: “Every year, 10 of the world’s most lethal death row criminals are chosen to compete for their freedom in THE JURASSIC GAMES, the ultimate virtual reality game show that pits its players against dinosaurs and each other. However, there is a catch… If you die in the virtual game, you also die in reality. For Anthony Tucker [Hampton], survival is his one chance to be reunited with his children after having been wrongfully imprisoned for the murder of his wife. As the devious Host continues adding improbable challenges, the characters will find the odds stacked against them as only one victor can emerge as winner and reclaim their freedom. Survive the dinosaurs. Survive each other. Survive…THE JURASSIC GAMES.”
