The CW’s ‘Capture’ Extended Trailer: Is It Hunger Games Cool or Just a Knock-Off?

Ever wanted to live in the world of The Hunger Games? Yeah, me neither, but The CW has found 24 people who were happy to rough it out in pairs of two for a chance to win $250,000 dollars. The network has released an extended preview of their summer reality series Captive full of running, faux danger and a smattering of potentially real blood. The stakes aren’t as life and death as the promo makes them out to be– it looks more high stakes laser tag than a fight to the death– but it could be a fun summer diversion.

You be the judge when you check out the promo below.

Capture premieres Wednesday, July 31st at 9/8c on The CW.
