The gang’s (almost all) back together.

X-Files creator Chris Carter has finalized the writers room for the series’ forthcoming 10-episode 11th season, and, like last year’s revival (aka Season 10), it’s stacked with franchise vets.

The Eighth Film In The Saw Franchise Gets A Name And Logo

22 June 2017 10:57 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

It's been about 13 years since the first installment of the Saw films hit the big screen. The film was based on a story by James Wan and Leigh Whannell, and it was also directed by Wan. It starred Cary Elwes, Danny Glover, Monica Potter and Tobin Bell. Overall, it grossed over $100 million dollars worldwide, and because of it's low budget it was very profitable. One remarkable note about the film was that it was shot in 18 days. The overall success of the the film with audiences allowed the studios to go ahead with a sequel. To this day they have continued to make the films the latest one being Saw 3D, which was directed by Kevin Greutert.

Now the eighth film in the franchise from Lionsgate has an official title: Jigsaw. The announcement came via Twitter on the official Saw page. You can see the image of the logo above. »

Saw 8: Legacy Gets Retitled Jigsaw, New Logo Unveiled

21 June 2017 9:16 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Oh, what a Halloween we'll have this year. There are plenty of ghouls and goblins heading towards the local cinema. But perhaps more awaited is the return of Jigsaw! Yes, John Kramer will be back this October as the Saw legacy continues. The eighth movie in the series, this latest installment promises to rejuvenate the horror franchise after laying dormant for several years. Today, we have the official logo along with these words from Lionsgate.

"One of the highest grossing Horror franchises of all time is back, taking the Jigsaw killer's signature brand of twisted scenarios to the next level."

As previously reported, Jigsaw will be in theaters the weekend of Halloween, starting October 27, 2017. Lionsgate did not offer any more on the story, but we do have some ideas about where this particular installment is heading. The story takes place seven years after Saw: The Final Chapter. And it stars Laura Vandervoort (Bitten, Smallville) and Hannah Anderson (Shoot the Messenger, Lizzie Borden Took an Ax) in the leads.

It was previously reported that Tobin Bell will be back as the main villain John Kramer, albeit via flashbacks as he's been dead since the third Saw movie, unless there is something sinister afoot that we don't yet know. Michael and Peter Spierig of Daybreakers fame are helming this latest installment. Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg are penning the screenplay with help from original creators James Wan and Leigh Whannell. Producers include Mark Burg, Gregg Hoffman, and Oren Koules.

As far as John Kramer is concerned, early reports on the film indicated that he'll be back in a limited capacity. A glorified cameo. He is the Mickey Mouse of this saga, introduced 14 years ago, at a time when Saw was considered a breakthrough in the horror genre. It not only spawned 6 sequels and healthy filmmaking careers for James Wan and Leigh Whannell, but it also started a Halloween tradition that ran straight through for seven very successful years. For a couple of years, Paranormal Activity stood in its place while it hibernated. But now the iconic series is raring and ready to go, with its pig masks back in place.

Set photos revealed that there will be some grave robbing going down in the opening moments of this next installment. And these bodies turn up all over the city. Each corpse has met their own unique demise. An investigation gets underway. And all fingers point to John Kramer, aka Jigsaw. But how can this be? Jigsaw has been dead for more than a decade. The belief is that an apprentice has stepped in to pick up the mantle left behind by Kramer. And the clues may lead to someone embedded within the investigation. Neither Costas Mandylor nor Cary Elwes, both exposed as Kramer apprentices in past installments, are returning in Jigsaw, unless their appearance is planned as a surprise for fans. Though not officially confirmed by Lionsgate, the rest of the cast is believed to include Mandela Van Peebles, Brittany Allen, Callum Keith Rennie, Matt Passmore, Hannah Emily Anderson, Josiah Black, Shaquan Lewis, Michael Bolsvert, and James Gomez.

Jon Cor's Ryan from the last installment, 2010's Saw 3D, is rumored to be back in this sequel. Though it isn't known how much time he gets in the overall plot. Ryan was seen in the opening trap with Sebastian Pigot's Brad in Saw 7. Writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan previously revealed in that film's commentary track for the Blu-ray and DVD release, that it was Ryan and Brad who were wearing the pig masks at the end of the film, leading to speculation they may be the ones who unearth Jigsaw's grave in this new installment. Jigsaw died in Saw III, but he has been featured through flashbacks in ever subsequent Saw movie. With Tobin Bell returning here, it sounds like Saw fans are in for an old school treat that will terrorize their soul. While we await the first teaser trailer, take a look at the official logo. »

Eighth ‘Saw’ Movie Gets a New Name

21 June 2017 8:34 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate has swapped the title of its eighth “Saw” film from “Saw: Legacy” to “Jigsaw.”

The horror franchise revolves around the fictional character John Kramer, also called the “Jigsaw Killer” or “Jigsaw,” who traps victims in situations that test their will to live. “Jigsaw” will open four days before Halloween on Oct. 27 in the U.S., followed by international launches in early 2018.

The movie was shot in November and is in post-production. Variety reported in January that Laura Vandervoort and Hannah Anderson had been announced as the first actors. Tobin Bell has played Jigsaw in the previous films

The film — the first “Saw” title in seven years — is directed by the sibling team of Peter and Michael Spierig from a script by Pete Goldfinger, Josh Stolberg, James Wan, and Leigh Whannell. Producers are Mark Burg, Gregg Hoffman, and Oren Koules, the trio that has produced all eight films.

Lionsgate has long specialized in genre fare such as the “Saw” franchise, produced by Twisted Pictures. The original “Saw” cost $1.2 million in 2004 and was Wan’s feature film directorial debut from a screenplay by Whannell. Cary Elwes, Danny Glover, Monica Potter, Michael Emerson, Ken Leung, Tobin Bell, and Whannell starred.

The first seven “Saw” films grossed more than $870 million worldwide combined. The Spierig brothers’ credits include 2003’s “Undead” and 2009’s “Daybreakers.”

The announcement about the name change came on Wednesday through the horror series’ official Twitter account.

The Wonder Woman They Didn’t Want You To See

28 May 2017 2:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week Neil Calloway looks at the 2011 Wonder Woman pilot…

This week sees the return of Wonder Woman to the big screen, the first time she’s appeared in her own live action project since the Lynda Carter fronted TV show ended in 1979. It wasn’t meant to be that way, though. Like other big name superhero projects, there have been other attempts to get Diana Prince on the screen.

One of those came in 2011, when NBC created a pilot TV show for Wonder Woman that, as happens with these things, was never picked up for a series or screened anywhere. Adrianne Palicki, who had appeared in an unsuccessful Aquaman pilot in 2007 and an episode of Smallville in 2004, but was probably best known for starring as Tyra Collette in the series Friday Night Lights, was cast in the lead role.

Pilots are greenlit, produced and scrapped without a second thought »

How The Princess Bride gets under your skin

14 May 2017 7:25 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Charlotte Harrison May 24, 2017

A love letter to The Princess Bride, a film that never fails to brighten a day.

The Princess Bride is 30 years old this year, an anniversary that feels truly inconceivable.

See related  Fargo season 2 episode 10 review: Palindrome Fargo: how to make great TV from a great film

This is not going to be an article about the making of the film - Westley himself, Cary Elwes, wrote a wonderful book entitled As You Wish, which does a far better job of that than I ever could. Nor will this article be examining the release – i.e. how it died at the box office but became an instant classic upon VHS release (“For death cannot stop true love!”)

Instead this is my love letter to my favourite film of all time. A film that I love unconditionally with more passion and devotion than any adjective could allow me to describe. »

USA Network’s “Psych” ended three years ago, but it might soon be getting a revival on the big screen.

Saw 8 Actor Teases Billy's Return and a Roller Coaster Trap?

25 March 2017 10:35 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It was revealed just a few weeks ago that Tobin Bell is returning to reprise his iconic role as John Kramer in Saw Legacy. The Jigsaw actor has now shared the first look at Billy along with teasing what could be one of the greatest Saw traps ever committed to the screen. Yes, it looks like Jigsaw will be using a rollercoaster to torment his victims in this latest Saw sequel. The actor had this to say on Twitter.

"Next time you're on a roller coaster...look up. #SawLegacy"

There is little else revealed about the photo. Billy is Jigsaw's cruel puppet that he uses to antagonize those he needs to teach a lesson to. And it appears Billy won't be sanctioned off in a basement somewhere. The image below hints at a brighter, sunnier Saw movie. Or perhaps Tobin Bell was just out, enjoying the day at Six Flags, »
