Saw 3D: The Final Chapter Slices into Dvd and Blu-ray in January

7 December 2010 9:34 PM, PST | Horror News | See recent Horror News news »

Jigsaw’s last game plays out in a gruesome, gore-filled finale on dvd, Blu-ray and 3D Blu-ray on January 25th, 2011. Prices for Saw 3D: The Final Chapter range from $29.95 (dvd) to $49.99 (3D Blu-ray combo pack) and will mark the end of an era.

Synopsis: “Fans see the game come full circle with Saw veteran Kevin Greutert (Director, Saw VI; Editor, Saw I-v) at the helm of the bloodiest and deadliest film yet. Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride, Saw) returns as Dr. Gordon, and joins the cast of Tobin Bell (the Saw series), Costas Mandylor (Sinners & Saints), Betsy Russell (Chain Letter) and Sean Patrick Flanery (The Boondock Saints).

DVD Art Claims Saw 3D Is "The Final Chapter"

7 December 2010 7:08 AM, PST | | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Saw producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules announced at this year's Comic-Con that the latest sequel, Saw 3D (a.k.a. Saw VII), would be the last installment, though that fact wasn't represented in the title. That's changed now that the movie is heading to the home video market.

Bloody-Disgusting got a copy of Saw 3D's DVD and Blu-ray art, which reveals the new title Saw 3D: The Final Chapter, indicating that the long-running horror movie franchise is indeed coming to an end, something the press (and fans) have had trouble believing.

Skepticism over Saw 3D really being "the final chapter" is understandable, considering that many horror movie sequels similarly names have turned out to be anything but the last sequel. However, co-screenwriter Patrick Melton reiterated the producers' statement in September, saying that Saw 3D was "the last shebang," and, a month later, director Kevin Greutert concurred, claiming "we »

Geek Gossip: Spider-Man, Thor, The Wolverine, Deadpool

7 December 2010 12:50 AM, PST | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

The Next Spider-Man movie appears to be taking an interesting turn, judging from the most recent castings.

Campbell Scott (The Exorcism of Emily Rose) and Julianne Nicholson (Law & Order: Criminal Intent) - both pictured above - are in discussions to play Peter Parker's parents Richard and Mary. Their deaths left their son an orphan and he was raised by his Uncle Ben (Richard's elder brother) and Aunt May.

Parker's parents didn't feature in the previous set of films and have rarely been shown in the comics, where they were later revealed to have been secret agents killed in a plane crash.

Also joining the cast is Slumdog Millionaire's Irrfan Khan (above right) as a villain named by HeatVision as Van Atter, while Annie Parisse would be the baddie's wife.

As has been reasonably speculated by fans, it seems likely this character is Nels Van Adder, an employee of Norman Osborn's company Oscorp. »

‘Tron: Legacy’ won’t be understood without seeing ‘Tron,’ which is hard to get

3 December 2010 10:34 AM, PST | | See recent news »

By Scott Mendelson I generally don’t do the whole ‘look what this critic wrote’, as it’s awfully close to just stealing someone else’s work for the sake of content. However, now that “Tron: Legacy” reviews are slowly coming in (pretty positive so far, but I suspect that will even out when the traditional critics see it), there is something that is worth noting. In one of two reviews now up at Rotten Tomatoes, Jenna Busch of makes the following comment:

“I just think that all of the things they put in are not going to be understood by people who haven’t seen the first film. And there it is. I’ve spoken to a bunch of people who were at the screening who hadn’t. They were bored. Not because it wasn’t shiny. Not because they don’t like sci-fi. Because »

Paranormal Activity 3 Gets a Release Date

18 November 2010 9:59 AM, PST | | See recent ReelzChannel news »

It looks like Paranormal Activity has replaced the Saw movies as the perennial October horror franchise. After the $156 million worldwide box office success of Paranormal Activity 2 (on a $3 million budget), Paramount Pictures has announced that Paranormal Activity 3 will open on Oct. 21, 2011.

The Oren Peli written and directed original surprised at the box office, making Saw VI the first Saw sequel to earn less than $30 million on its opening weekend. Tod "Kip" Williams directed the Paranormal Activity 2 sequel, which earned $41.5 million on its opening weekend. Saw 3D, the seventh and supposedly final installment in the series, earned $24.2 million, stronger than Saw VI, but was helped by the added 3-D surcharge.

'Paranormal Activity 3' to Let Out the Scare in October 2011

17 November 2010 11:21 PM, PST | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

"Paranormal Activity 2" has successfully crushed "Saw VI" when it was opened in theaters back in October, and Paramount Pictures is not wasting time to push forward its plan for a sequel. Dread Central recently brought up the news when "Paranormal Activity 3" will be released in theaters across the United States.

Accordingly, creator Oren Peli has broke the news that the third installment of the supernatural horror franchise is due for October 21, 2011 release. The date places it to be in competition with "Contagion", a Steven Soderbergh-directed thriller which stars Matt Damon, Kate Winslet and Gwyneth Paltrow among others.

"Paranormal Activity 2" follows a family who sets up security cameras around their home and realizes that the events unfolding before them are more sinister than they seem. Although it wasn't able to match its predecessor "Paranormal Activity" in terms of its total domestic gross, the sequel broke the opening weekend gross record »

Paranormal Activity 3 Scares Up A Date

17 November 2010 4:02 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Ever since the first Paranormal Activity left Saw VI a bleeding pile of mush on the floor of the American box office boxing ring, and the sequel did solid business, this news was pretty much inevitable, but we thought we’d relay it all the same: Paramount is planning a third entry in the fright film franchise. We know, right?! We were totally surprised too! Who could ever have guess…. Okay, not so much. Dread Central has it on good authority from original writer/director and current producing overlord Oren Peli that a third instalment will hit the States on October 21, 2011, which means that we should see it the same day.So now comes the nitty gritty: what do you think they’ll follow up from the second movie? And what do you want to see? Should they explain any lingering mysteries, or keep deepening the mythology? And should it be made at all? »

'Paranormal Activity 3' to spook movie-goers on Oct. 21, 2011

17 November 2010 3:44 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

Paranormal Activity seems to be taking a (bloody) page from the Saw series: The low-budget horror franchise has scheduled its third film for Oct. 21, 2011, nearly one year after the release of Paranormal Activity 2. With that move, Paramount seems to be establishing the franchise as an annual event scheduled to scare movie-goers each Halloween. The studio could not release any other details about Paranormal Activity 3, but is likely hoping for continued box office success over the years: The second film, released this past October, has raked in $82 million, while the first Paranormal — released in 2009 — proved to be a surprise hit, »

Around-the-World Roundup: 'Due Date' Travels the Globe

10 November 2010 11:01 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

Debuting simultaneously with its domestic release, Due Date took first place at the foreign box office with solid numbers in 36 territories. Despicable Me hit a significant milestone, and Jackass 3-D easily eclipsed the previous Jackass movies. Due Date earned $22 million, which was close to The Hangover's $21.7 million aggregate opening among the same territories. It had two major first place finishes in the United Kingdom and Germany, where it debuted to $3.8 million and $3.7 million, respectively. Its highest tally, though, was its $3.9 million opening in Russia, which was good for second place behind Megamind. Other noteworthy grosses included $1.4 million in Spain, $1.3 million in Mexico and just under $1 million in Brazil. The road trip comedy's set to open in France this weekend, followed by Australia and South Korea on Nov. 25. With no significant new territories, last weekend's leader Despicable Me fell 40 percent to $13.1 million. Among its major holdovers, it earned $2.1 million in France, »

Due Date on time to kick Jackass 3D

9 November 2010 6:42 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The man-comedy did well, but Jackass capitalised on tech to post the best results for its franchise so far. Meanwhile, there was disappointment for Another Year and Let Me In

The winner

In the battle of the big Us comedies, Due Date, from The Hangover director Todd Phillips, has emerged victorious over Jackass 3D. The road-trip comedy opened with £2.35m, not so very far behind The Hangover's debut of £2.75m (plus £444,000 in previews) in June 2009. The result is good news for lead actors Robert Downey Jr and Zach Galifianakis: following his success in Iron Man and Sherlock Holmes, properties that had the benefit of pre-existing awareness, Downey can now be seen as bankable in an original-screenplay comedy; meanwhile Galifianakis, no one-trick pony, has proved himself outside The Hangover. Due Date's opening is the biggest for a male-driven comedy in 2010. The Other Guys, starring Will Ferrell, debuted with £1.98m in September; Grown Ups, »

Weekend Box Office Review: Megamind, Due Date, For Colored Girls open well, 127 Hours explodes in limited release

7 November 2010 5:50 PM, PST | | See recent news » There weren’t a lot of surprises at the box office this weekend. Megamind opened right in line with most Dreamworks animated originals, with $47.6 million.

The standard for non-sequels in the Dreamworks cartoon library is $43-47 million. Opening just above A Shark Tale ($47.6 million) and Madagascar ($47.2 million), the supervillain epic has the third biggest opening for a non-sequel in the Dreamworks animation catalogue, behind Monsters Vs. Aliens ($59.3 million) and Kung Fu Panda ($60.2 million). It was their seventh biggest animated opening overall. More impressive was the 3.8x weekend multiplier, which is their biggest weekend multiplier in recent memory.

The film didn’t open anywhere near the $56 million debut of Despicable Me, but Universal used the yellow minions to sell the film to the kids, while using the whole ‘root for a super-villain’ angle for the grownups. Megamind didn’t really have a kid-friendly angle, so it was up to »

'Megamind' Devises Big Start,'Due Date' Pays Off

7 November 2010 11:30 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

Megamind, Due Date and For Colored Girls each opened solidly or better over the weekend, cumulatively fueling the highest-grossing holiday season kick-off ever (if estimates hold). Overall business improved a whopping 30 percent over the same weekend last year when A Christmas Carol (2009) led in its debut. Commandeering an estimated $47.7 million on around 7,300 screens at 3,944 locations, Megamind left its mark with a more bustling start than How to Train Your Dragon ($43.7 million), A Christmas Carol and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs among others. However, it wasn't quite the mastermind that the similarly-themed Despicable Me ($56.4 million) was. It also fell short of Monsters Vs. Aliens ($59.3 million), and its attendance was less than half that of The Incredibles on the same weekend in 2004. Megamind boasted the broadest release yet for the 3D illusion, 2,634 locations, which accounted for 66 percent of the gross (59 percent regular 3D and seven percent IMAX 3D).

Friday Report: 'Megamind,' 'Due Date' Deliver

6 November 2010 4:04 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

On Friday, all three new nationwide releases, Megamind, Due Date and For Colored Girls, posted solid numbers, cumulatively providing a high-grossing start to the holiday movie season. Overall business improved considerably over the same Friday last year when A Christmas Carol led in its debut. Megamind drew an estimated $12.5 million on approximately 7,200 screens at 3,944 locations. While that was much less than the similarly-themed Despicable Me's $21.3 million first day, it was slightly higher than How to Train Your Dragon's $12.1 million. Hot on Megamind's heels was Due Date with an estimated $12.2 million on around 4,700 screens at 3,355 locations. That was on the high end for an R-rated comedy, grossing much more than Role Models' $6.7 million on the same Friday in 2008, though it trailed The Hangover's $16.7 million. The disparity between Megamind and Due Date will grow in Megamind's favor as the weekend progresses. For Colored Girls made an estimated $7.4 million on close to 2,900 screens at 2,127 locations, »

Saw 3D traps UK audiences to take the Halloween box office crown

6 November 2010 3:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

UK box office top ten and analysis for the weekend of Friday 29th - Sunday 31st October 2010.

Over the past few years it seems Halloween hasn't been complete without a new Saw film hitting screens and this year is no different, with the seventh installment Saw 3D making its debut at the top of the UK chart with £3.6m including Thursday previews. Saw 3D opens to more than double that of its predecessor Saw VI and with a similar return in North America - Saw 3D's opening weekend is just under $1.5m shy of Saw VI's lifetime haul - you'd expect that promised last entry to quickly be forgotten.

Illumination Entertainment must be rather pleased with the performance of Despicable Me, which holds onto second place this week and is now the highest-earner in the chart with a three-week gross of £15m. Meanwhile last week's number one Paranormal Activity 2 »

Seven-Day Summary: 'Saw 3D' Quickly Tops 'Saw VI's Total

5 November 2010 2:40 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

While it couldn't match most of its series' previous entries, Saw 3D proved there was still some life left in the perennial horror franchise, claiming first place at the box office this week. Paranormal Activity 2 fell to second, while comic book adaptation Red continued its solid run. Overall business was up around three percent from last year, when Michael Jackson's This Is It led with $32.6 million. Saw 3D earned $28.9 million at 2,808 locations for a $30.6 million total (including Thursday evening previews). This was much lower than the opening weeks for Saw II through Saw V, though it was much higher than Saw VI. In fact, by Tuesday, Saw 3D had already out-grossed Saw VI's $27.7 million final haul. Paranormal Activity 2 dropped a standard 58 percent to $20.8 million. While it has no chance of reaching Paranormal Activity's $107.9 million tally, the sequel's $69.9 million two-week total is high enough to make Paranormal Activity 3 inevitable. »

Around-the-World Roundup: 'Despicable Me' Conquers World Again

3 November 2010 2:48 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

Thanks to school holidays in many areas in Europe, Despicable Me had a great hold and moved back in to first place at the foreign box office. Paranormal Activity 2 dropped to second, while Saw 3D dramatically improved on Saw VI's earnings in its foreign debut. Also, Megamind was well-received in Russia and Ukraine ahead of its domestic opening this Friday.Despicable Me was up slightly to $21.8 million for a total of over $236 million. Its only major launch came in Japan, where it had a decent $2.8 million second place finish. Despicable Me also took advantage of the holidays in France by increasing 59 percent to $5.1 million for a total of $21.6 million. The animated comedy has made over $480 million worldwide (domestic plus foreign) and will soon be on the verge of crossing the $500 million mark. Paranormal Activity 2 dipped 32 percent to $15.1 million from 27 territories. This figure included tiny openings in Portugal »

Dennis Iliadis Joins Ghost Whisperer Vet on The Demonologists.

2 November 2010 5:01 PM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The supernatural is back. After taking a break while torture-porn pulled teeth, last year’s underperformance of Saw VI and box-office triumph of Paranormal Activity heralded a return to the humble haunted house. With this year’s The Last Exorcism and Paranormal Activity 2 pitting ordinary families against supernatural forces, the scene is set for 2011.

Having already put one unsuspecting family to the test in Wes Craven remake Last House on the Left, Dennis Iliadis is in negotiations to direct Silver Pictures’ new film The Demonologists. While Last House subjected familial normality to rape and murder, The Demonologists will pit a family of veteran ghost hunters against a vengeful demonic infestation – driving yet another decent household to violent acts.

Iliadis will join Ghost Whisperer alumni Teddy Tenenbaum on the project, which will follow Anthony Hopkins’ exorcism movie The Rite into cinemas next year.

3D boosts flagging Saw series with biggest-ever opening

2 November 2010 8:30 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

UK audiences lap up 3D horror, while Simon Pegg's Burke and Hare makes an unpromising debut in sixth place

The winner

Anyone who still needs persuading regarding the potential of 3D to re-energise flagging film brands need look no further than the current success of Lionsgate's Saw 3D. Having peaked in 2006 with Saw III, which opened with £2.52m, debuts for the Halloween staple dipped slightly for the fourth and fifth instalments, before diving to £1.74m with Saw VI. Now episode seven arrives with an opening salvo of £3.6m, including £659,000 in previews. Even with the Thursday takings stripped out, that's comfortably the biggest-ever opening for a Saw movie. Rival studio Paramount will be hoping for a similar uplift when it releases Jackass 3D on Friday.

The loser

Considering it distributed the first two entries in the Saw franchise, it must have been moderately galling for the UK's independently owned Entertainment »
