[moody electronic music]

A startling verdict

in what many are calling

the most controversial

murder trial in years.

Anthony Tucker found guilty

of first degree murder.

My client maintains

his innocence.

We have no comment at this time.

[Reporter] How could you

do that to your wife?

Anthony Tucker, I am

honored to formally invite you

to participate as a

contestant on this year's

Jurassic Games.

Do you accept?


In entertainment news,

this year's contestants

for the Jurassic Games

have been chosen.

I don't even care

about the contestants,

I wanna see the hot host and

what he's gonna be wearing

and saying, that's

what I wanna watch.

Ooh, I can't wait!


[computer sounds]




It feels real, doesn't it?

The sand on your skin.

The sun on your face,

the taste in your mouth.

Well to all of you this

world is absolutely real.

The danger is real

and the pain is real.

But so is the reward.

Oh, oh, be careful with that.

I'll need you to do

as I say or boom.


You all know that

when you die in here,

you die for real.

All of you are in

here for one reason.

To win your freedom.

To go home.

You can avoid the death you

justly deserve by surviving,

by fighting, by

confronting your fears

and proving your worthiness.

Your goal is to be

the sole survivor.

Find yourself the last

man or woman standing

and you will win a full

pardon, you will go home,

free, alive, exonerated.

Now it will be tempting

to kill each other,

there's no rules against that,

but please if you

would be so kind,

try to leave at least

some of you alive

for the main attraction.


Oh, did you feel that?

A few miles beyond the tree-line

your first objective awaits.

A temporary safe zone.

Now your collars will

alert you when you arrive.

Red, you're too far

away, yellow means

you're getting closer, and

green means you have reached

the safe zone and completed

your first challenge.

Reach the safe zone in

one hour or you die.

Die here in the

game and as you know

you will die in real

life by lethal injection

as been assigned by the state.

The pain you feel in this

world will be real pain.

Like the real pain you inflicted

on those that you have killed.

Everyone understand?


Congratulations to you all.

As of right now, you are no

longer death row inmates.

You are contestants on the

greatest game show in the world,

the Jurassic Games!




Oh sh*t.

Did I mess up my hair?

No, it's good?



Alright guys, you ready?

How long until we're live?

[Woman] Live in 10.

[The Host] Okay.

[Woman] Alright everyone,

we're going live in three, two...

[clears throat]

They have less than 59

minutes to reach the safe zone.

So sit back, try to relax and

enjoy, ladies and gentlemen.

Because today is going

to be a hell of a day

for our brave contestants.


So far so good.

I mean that lineup

is gorgeous on camera.

I'm telling you right

now we are hitting

all the key demographics.

It's a great cast.

It's the best one yet.

Stay on the cannibal.

[kids laughing]


Stay outta my way,

you piece of sh*t!

I'm sorry!

Please don't hurt me, please!


This is real!

I can taste you!


Our contestants

are frantically

trying to find the safe zone.

Don't worry, I'm sure

most of them will.

But in the end, nine will

die and one will win.

And this year's four stages

are by far the best ever.

Stage one.

The contestants must survive

being hunted by hungry dinosaurs
