‘Jigsaw’ Trailer & Poster

7 August 2017 6:12 PM, PDT | Age of the Nerd | See recent Age of the Nerd news »

Jigsaw‘ has revealed it’s first trailer and a new teaser poster. It’s been seven whole long years since we were last graced with the release of a Saw film, with the previous entry in the franchise ‘Saw 3D‘ released in 2010. Although Jigsaw himself, Tobin Bell, is set to return — we still don’t know to what capacity.

The film was originally titled ‘Saw: Legacy‘ but was then changed to ‘Jigsaw‘ after principal photography was completed. Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger wrote the script, and Michael and Peter Spierig directed the film, which is due for an October 2017 release. The sequel stars Callum Keith Rennie as “Halloran”, Clé Bennett as “Det. Keith”, and Laura Vandervoort as “Anna”.

Here’s the official trailer and poster for ‘Jigsaw‘:

A Glowering John Kramer Looms Over Jigsaw’s Comic-Con Poster

21 July 2017 11:29 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Jigsaw Killer gets a new lease of life – quite literally, as it were – in this blood-red Sdcc poster for Jigsaw.

It is, in essence, the eighth entry into Lionsgate’s time-honored Saw franchise, one that’s coming by way of directing duo Michael and Peter Spierig. Best known for their work on Daybreakers, the Spierig siblings are still relatively new when it comes to Hollywood’s horror scene, but when asked to describe how they approached the cult series, Michael Spierig hinted that Jigsaw is “Saw for 2017.” That means it’s safe to expect more nightmare fuel and wildly inventive demented traps than you can shake a pig’s mask at, and though Lionsgate’s franchise has fallen by the wayside in recent years, in 2017, Halloween belongs to Jigsaw. And long may he reign.

Mind you, given that Tobin Bell’s sick, twisted psychopath bit the bullet in Saw III, »

Creepy Jigsaw Stills Tease Danger At Every Corner

21 July 2017 5:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“Become Jigsaw.”

Fueling rumors that Michael and Peter Spierig’s upcoming horror sequel focuses on John Kramer’s twisted disciples, and not the man himself, yesterday Lionsgate rolled out a slew of stark one-sheets for Jigsaw and, well, let’s just say they weren’t your average character posters. Rather than placing the spotlight on the film’s ensemble cast, each portrait featured a loyal follower of Kramer’s, replete with blood-drenched pig mask to drive the point home: these protégés intend to bring about a new reign of terror, and in the fallout of Jigsaw‘s first teaser trailer, horror fans are already reeling at the wild traps in store.

Working from a script composed by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg, the Spierig Brothers have been tasked with pumping fresh blood into one of horror’s modern-day favorites, and when Michael Spierig was asked to deliver an elevator pitch for Jigsaw, »

First Trailer for ‘Jigsaw’ – Saw Franchise Returns for Halloween

21 July 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Josh Aruliah

The Saw franchise will be returning to our cinemas this Halloween, with the first trailer for ‘Jigsaw’ out, meaning that ‘Saw 3D: The Final Chapter’ is no longer the final chapter…

The film picks up about 10 years later than the apparent death (in ‘Saw III’) of the Jigsaw Killer, John Kramer (Tobin Bell). New, gruesome murders are being discovered around the city, with the evidence from the investigation pointing to Jigsaw. The question is who is this killer? Is Jigsaw still alive or is there a copycat? It is something for the police to figure out.

Michael Spierig, one of the directors, has said that this outing will be more fun and less vicious compared to the previous films:

“We’ve got some pretty wild traps in the film — we don’t shy away from the gore. It’s such a perfect Halloween scarefest. It’s perhaps »

We all have a part to play, official Jigsaw trailer releases

20 July 2017 6:43 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

By Seth Metoyer

The official Jigsaw trailer was revealed at San Diego Comic-con. Jigsaw is the eighth film in the Saw franchise and will release just in time for Halloween.

Not a lot aside from the teaser posters and trailer have been made available for fans, but it has been confirmed that Tobin Bell will appear in some capacity.

The cast also includes Mandela Van Peebles, Laura Vandervoort, Brittany Allen, Callum Keith Rennie, Matt Passmore, Hannah Emily Anderson, Josiah Black, Shaquan Lewis, Michael Bolsvert, and James Gomez.

Jigsaw was written by Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger (Piranha 3D and Sorority Row). Directed by the Spierig brothers, Peter and Michael, who directed Daybreakers and Predestination.

In the trailer, the detectives reveal that Jigsaw’s DNA was discovered under a victim’s fingernails, which obviously stumps them since "The Saw killer" has been dead for ten years now. However, this »

There Will Be No Survivors in Jigsaw aka Saw 8: First Trailer!

20 July 2017 4:26 PM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

The first trailer for Jigsaw is here. Aka Saw 8, it has been six years since a Saw film has debuted. The film is set for a late October release. And, the film's first trailer shows several people trapped in various torture rooms. Several characters must face their flaws, or face the saw. Tobin Bell is attached to the film. Though, the character Jigsaw has died several films ago. Laura Vandervoort ("Bitten), Brittany Allen (It Stains the Sands Red) and Hannah Emily Anderson (Lizzie Borden Took an Axe) also star in this latest outing. The release details, for Jigsaw, are here. The synopsis mentions an apprentice. Still, John Kramer's DNA is turning up on victims. So, who is still killing in Jigsaw's name? Further story details remain elusive. Though, the trailer does focus more on action, than a narrative. Characters find themselves in all sorts of dire situations. In one scene, »

‘Jigsaw’ Trailer: The Twisted Game Master is Back From Beyond the Grave

20 July 2017 12:30 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Tobin Bell‘s twisted character Jigsaw, aka John Kramer, died in 2006’s Saw III, but his impact is still being felt ten years after the events of 2010’s now-incorrectly-named Saw: The Final Chapter. Kramer is somehow back to his old ways in Jigsaw, Lionsgate’s first sequel to the franchise in seven years, and that means more gruesome traps, more elaborate […]

The Master Returns in First Trailer for 'Jigsaw' Arriving This October

20 July 2017 11:33 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

"You want mercy? Play by the rules." Lionsgate has revealed the first trailer for the next Saw movie, titled simply Jigsaw, referring to the original mastermind behind all the deadly traps and torture. Even though he supposedly died in one of the earlier movies, this title and the new trailer makes me wonder if Jigsaw (played by Tobin Bell) is somehow back from the dead. The cast this time includes Laura Vandervoort, Callum Keith Rennie, Matt Passmore, Hannah Emily Anderson, Brittany Allen, and others. Even though we already had a 3D Saw recently, this one is supposedly taking Jigaw's "signature brand of twisted scenarios to the next level." This didn't look so bad until the lasers on the head trap, then I rolled my eyes. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Michael & Peter Spierig's Jigsaw, direct from YouTube: Bodies are turning up around the city, each having met a uniquely gruesome demise. »

New Wave Of Jigsaw Posters Strengthens Copycat Theory

Jigsaw Poster Gallery 1 of 7

More From The Web Click to zoom 

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 »

‘Jigsaw’: First Trailer Resurrects a Deadly Threat

20 July 2017 9:58 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Fans of the Saw franchise, originally created by neo-horror veterans James Wan and Leigh Whannell, will find a lot of familiar territory in the first trailer for the eighth installment, Jigsaw. That's not just because some of the deadly traps and manipulative measures used in the previous seven films make an appearance here, but because the title killer himself appears to be behind a new rash of gruesome guilt-kills. The investigators into these serial killings are flummoxed by this fact, considering that John Kramer (Tobin Bell) was killed years ago in Saw III. This twist on the … »

Halloween Belongs To Jigsaw In This Horrifying First Trailer For Saw Sequel

20 July 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Remember when Jigsaw co-director Michael Spierig (Daybreakers) promised some “pretty wild traps” ahead of October’s Saw sequel?

Well, thanks to the film’s blood-curdling first trailer, we now have an idea of the horrors in store, and it seems as though the twisted legacy of John Kramer has taken on a new form. Tobin Bell’s demented serial killer actually bit the bullet during Saw III in 2006, so Michael and Peter Spierig have been quick to play down talk of Bell returning – either via flashback or some form of unexpected appearance. That doesn’t necessarily mean that a cameo is completely out of the question though – the film is called Jigsaw, after all – particularly when you consider the fact that John Kramer’s voice can be heard in today’s first-look teaser. “The truth will set you free.”

From there, the nightmare-inducing footage cuts to some form of containment »

20 July 2017 9:28 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Riddled with traps and ripe with dark humor, the first trailer for Jigsaw has arrived, giving fans an in-depth look into the eighth Saw film.

Scheduled for an October 27th, 2017 release, Jigsaw is directed by Michael and Peter Spierig (Predestination, Daybreakers, Undead) from a screenplay by Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger (who previously worked on the screenplays for Piranha 3D and Sorority Row). The franchise's producers Mark Burg, Gregg Hoffman, and Oren Koules all returned for Jigsaw.

Jigsaw stars Matt Passmore, Callum Keith Rennie, Clé Bennett, Hannah Emily Anderson, Laura Vandervoort, Mandela Van Peebles, Paul Braunstein, Brittany Allen, and Josiah Black.

"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."

If you're at Comic-Con, Tobin Bell will be taking part in an autograph signing and the Spierig brothers will be part of »

20 July 2017 9:18 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The “Saw” franchise was supposed to have ended seven years ago with the release of “Saw 3D,” but you just can’t kill a once-popular horror franchise, can you? The series is being resurrected this Halloween with the eighth installment, “Jigsaw,” directed by up-and-coming Australian filmmaking duo the Spierig Brothers. The duo have directed Ethan Hawk-starring efforts like “Daybreakers” and “Predestination.”

A Nightmarish Legacy Begins To Unfold In This Red Band Leatherface Trailer

17 July 2017 10:10 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This Halloween, Lionsgate is plotting double trouble.

On the one hand, the studio is working closely with Michael and Peter Spierig to rustle up Jigsaw, the eighth Saw movie that’s poised to carve out a new chapter in the blood-drenched lore of John Kramer (Tobin Bell). It’s by no means the only marquee horror picture due to arrive in October though, as Lionsgate and Millennium Films are also preparing the Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel movie known simply as Leatherface.

A minimalist, yet instantly recognizable title isn’t the only thing that the two projects have in common, either, as Leatherface is also on the verge of becoming the eighth entry into the Texas Chainsaw series later this year. Pitched as “a brutal and nihilistic road movie,” that sense of legacy isn’t lost on co-directors Julian Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, who are working from a script by Seth M. Sherwood. »

Q&A: Director Matt Eskandari on Creating a Claustrophobic Atmosphere for the Swimming Pool Thriller 12 Feet Deep

11 July 2017 11:23 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Whether you're afraid of the water or not, finding yourself trapped beneath a pool cover might fall into your "worst nightmare" category, and that's exactly what two sisters face in 12 Feet Deep, the new thriller from Matt Eskandari. With the swimming pool-set film out now from MarVista Entertainment, we caught up with director and co-writer Matt Eskandari for our latest Q&A feature to discuss working with Tobin Bell (Jigsaw from the Saw movies), the challenges of filming underwater, and much more.

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Matt. How and when did you and Michael Hultquist first come up with the idea for 12 Feet Deep?

Matt Eskandari: I'm still ashamed to admit it, but even as a grown man, I still cannot swim. I have extreme anxiety around large public pools. The smell of chlorine and the loud reverberated sounds inside get me on edge. »
