After taking a lengthy – and much needed – hiatus from cinemas, the Saw franchise is finally ready to once again shed gallons of blood with its latest installment, Jigsaw. But despite featuring a returning Tobin Bell who’s set to reprise the role of John Kramer in some capacity, all signs point toward a copycat at play – but more on that later.
In the meantime, though, we’re eating up any teasers that come our way before opening weekend, be they big or small. Thanks to Yahoo, we’ve now been granted a new look at Laura Vandervoort facing down a mounted shotgun. And while it’s not clear if it’s rigged to anything, odds are that it’s there for a reason and it’s going to spell bad news for somebody before long – quite possibly her.
If indeed someone is following in Kramer’s footsteps, it’s vital that their “games” be winnable, »

In my conversation with Fernando Trueba at the W Hotel Union Square in New York, he paid tribute to Emilio Ruiz del Río, who also worked with Stanley Kubrick (Spartacus), David Lean (Lawrence Of Arabia and Doctor Zhivago), Nicholas Ray (King Of Kings), John Milius (Conan The Barbarian), and Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth). Fernando's latest, The Queen Of Spain (La Reina De España) stars Penélope Cruz who was also his The Girl Of Your Dreams (La Niña De Tus Ojos) with Antonio Resines, Santiago Segura, Rosa Maria Sardà, Jorge Sanz, Jesús Bonilla, and Loles León, who all return here.

After taking a lengthy – and much needed – hiatus from cinemas, the Saw franchise is finally ready to once again shed gallons of blood with its latest installment, Jigsaw. But despite featuring a returning Tobin Bell who’s set to reprise the role of John Kramer in some capacity, all signs point toward a copycat at play, but more on that later.
So, while the debate as to whether Kramer was a serial killer or misunderstood crimefighter rages on, we can take solace in knowing that yet another familiar totem of the highly lucrative horror franchise will make its return. This time, though, the latest piece of promotional material comes to us in the form of a poster hyping the film’s Japanese release (seen below), with Billy the puppet prominently featured.
From the very beginning, Billy served as one of the original Jigsaw killer’s trademarks, so it’s quite »

“Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die!”
Why is this such a classic line in the minds of many? I don’t know, really. But I do know that the way that Mandy Patinkin delivers it in this film has ‘classic line’ written all over it!
The Princess Bride screens this Friday and Saturday nights (July 28th and 29th) at midnight at the Tivoli Theater as part of their ‘Reel Late at the Tivoli’ Midnight series.
Believe it or don’t, but I just saw The Princess Bride for the first time in 2014 at a Tenacious Eats ‘Movies for Foodies’ event. I’d heard great things about it for decades so I’m not sure why I’ve spent so many years avoiding it. Perhaps because I was 25 when it was made in 1987 and really, what self-respecting dude would watch a movie called The Princess Bride »

Jigsaw Poster Gallery 1 of 7

Hot on the heels of a freshly released trailer comes a new wave of Jigsaw posters that give us a better idea of what to expect when we shuffle into cinemas this fall. Actually, the first poster found its way online earlier this month and caught our attention with its cryptic “Become Jigsaw” tagline, but you may agree that each of the six above make quite the impression.
This time around, we’re offered three separate taglines that are as chilling as they are intriguing: “He is everyone,” “He is everywhere” and “He is everything.” And while it does sound like someone is piecing together the chorus to a touching ballad in tribute of John Kramer, we can’t help but think this strengthens the ongoing theory that a copycat is at play. After all, neither »

Although we could argue that Lionsgate exhausted moviegoers with the initial run of the Saw series by releasing seven films in quick succession, it’s undeniable that it became one of the most lucrative horror franchises of all-time. That said, it shouldn’t surprise any of us that they’re taking a second stab at it with Jigsaw, the recently confirmed title of the relaunch.
Now, we can probably all agree that waiting for some significant details regarding the plot has been possibly even more painful than finding yourself on the business end of a reverse bear trap, but the synopsis does provide some hints:
Bodies are turning up around the city, each having met a uniquely gruesome demise. As the investigation proceeds, evidence points to one man: John Kramer. But how can this be? The man known as Jigsaw has been dead for over a decade. Or has an »

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.

Most notably, Carter will once again reunite with former producers Glen Morgan, Darin Morgan and James Wong, each of whom were responsible for writing and directing one of Season 10’s six episodes. (Darin Morgan’s installment, “Mulder & Scully Meet the Were-Monster,” was widely viewed as the revival’s strongest outing.)

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.

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

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 »
