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, »

By Seth Metoyer

MoreHorror.com

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 »

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, »

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

20 July 2017 11:33 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net 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. »

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 »

Over its past two seasons, Supergirl has welcomed various actors who’ve previously appeared in Superman or Supergirl related productions. Lois & Clark‘s Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher have both turned up, as has 1984’s Supergirl star Helen Slater. Another is Laura Vandervoort, who played Supergirl on Smallville. Now, one of Vandervoort’s co-stars on the show has landed a part on the upcoming third season of The CW DC series.

Erica Durance, most well known for starring as Lois Lane opposite Tom Welling’s Clark Kent on the Superman prequel, has landed the part of Kara Danver’s Kryptonian mother Alura.
