International Trailer For The Meg Adds A Little More Bite

Look, if the prospect of seeing Jason Statham go to war with a prehistoric super-shark doesn’t have you sweating with anticipation, then you don’t know compelling cinema. While it won’t be the talk of awards season next year, except maybe the Razzies, The Meg has got brainless blockbuster written all over it, and we couldn’t be more ecstatic about it.

Earlier this week, Warner Bros. unleashed the first trailer for Jon Turteltaub’s action horror pic, and it delivered the teeth and testosterone. Now, the studio has smelt the blood in the water and has gone in for the kill, releasing an international preview for the adaptation of Steve Alten’s New York Times bestselling book. It doesn’t feature a whole lot of new footage, but there is a bit and it definitely dives deeper into the film’s plot.

Let’s face it, summer

Listen to the Corpse Club Discuss The Ruins and Piranha 3D on a New Episode of Daily Dead’s Podcast

Vacation is supposed to be the time of your life, not the fight for your life, but that's exactly what happens for the unlucky characters in The Ruins (2008) and Piranha 3D (2010), the subjects of a new episode of Daily Dead's official podcast.

Vacations get vicious on a new episode of Daily Dead's official podcast, as co-hosts Heather Wixson, Scott Drebit, Derek Anderson, and Jonathan James put on their sun screen and gather around the microphones to discuss two very different vacation-gone-wrong horror movies: The Ruins (2008) and Piranha 3D (2010). The co-hosts discuss the under-your-skin scares and palpable paranoia of Carter Smith's feature film debut, as well as the underwater horrors and twisted sense of humor in Alexandre Aja's 2010 horror comedy. The water's a little bloody, but we promise it feels just fine, so sit back, relax, and enjoy a new episode of the Corpse Club... just don't get too close to the flowers!

Movie News: Adam Sandler to Star in 'Uncut Gems'; Watch Kevin Hart, Tiffany Haddish in First 'Night School' Trailer

Uncut Gems: Adam Sandler recently flexed his dramatic chops in The Meyerowitz Stories (above) and soon he will be teaming with Josh Safdie and Benny Safdie, the filmmakers behind the acclaimed dramatic thriller Good Time. No other details have been revealed yet, beyond the title (Uncut Gems), though we hear that production is scheduled to begin this fall. Martin Scorsese will serve as one of the executive producers. [Deadline]   Saw: The eighth film in a long-running horror series, the modestly-budgeted Jigsaw (above) proved to be a financial success last fall, earning more than $100 million at the worldwide box office.

Ninth Saw Movie Reportedly In The Works With Jigsaw Scribes

Contrary to popular belief (and common sense?), Saw: The Final Chapter did not signal the end of Twisted Pictures and Lionsgate’s cult horror franchise. And neither did Jigsaw, it seems.

Sources close to Bloody Disgusting suggest Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg (Piranha 3D, Sorority Row) are currently in the midst of developing a ninth Saw movie, though it’s unclear if this continuation will be angled as a direct sequel to Jigsaw or The Final Chapter – or something else entirely.

What we can tell you, however, is that Jigsaw helmers Michael and Peter Spierig will not be returning to the director’s chair, meaning the Powers That Be will likely be sending out the feelers to find a potential replacement(s), if they haven’t already.

Buoyed by the return of John Kramer (Tobin Bell), Jigsaw scored $102 million off the back of a $10 million production budget back in October,

Rick Famuyiwa To Direct Former David Fincher Project ‘Black Hole’

David Fincher has circled/almost directed a lot of movies in his time, and eight years ago, we ran down The 5 Lost David Fincher Projects We’d Still Love To See One Day. Making the cut was “Black Hole,” the adaptation of Charles Burns‘ acclaimed novel. Plenty of talent has attempted to wrangle the material, with Alexandre Aja (“Haute Tension,” “Piranha 3D”) originally attached to direct, while Neil Gaiman and Roger Avary tried and failed to write a script that pleased Fincher.

Watching the 'Jigsaw' Twist Unfold Is an Existential Experience

Watching the 'Jigsaw' Twist Unfold Is an Existential Experience
[Warning: This story contains spoilers for Jigsaw]

Jigsaw, the seventh sequel in the seemingly deathless Saw horror series, enters theaters with a lot of baggage. And, to be fair, co-directors Michael and Peter Spierig (Daybreakers, Predestination) and co-writers Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg (Piranha 3D, Sorority Row) do half-heartedly downplay some of the more tedious elements that have come to define the earlier Saw movies.

For starters, the "torture" aspect of the fatal death-trap "tests" that serial killer John "Jigsaw" Kramer (franchise staple Tobin Bell) puts his victims through is taken down several notches. Jigsaw features far fewer — and...

First Saw 8 Clip Revives One of Jigsaw's Most Twisted Games
Even though Lionsgate hasn't inundated us with marketing for the movie, a brand new entry in the Saw franchise is on the way. And very soon. Jigsaw, the upcoming eighth movie in the very successful horror series, arrives in theaters just in time for Halloween after a very long absence. Now, Lionsgate has released the first clip from Jigsaw, which reveals a deadly and dangerous, yet familiar looking, game.

The clip is one that has been teased in the Jigsaw trailer and TV spots, which sees five strangers with buckets on their heads, and the clip is appropriately titled Bucket Heads, chained up in a room facing impending doom. The very familiar voice of John Kramer, aka Jigsaw, plays over the intercom and reveals that a tribute of blood must be made in order for the unlucky subjects to survive. Then, the chains connected to their buckets start pulling them

The Game Begins In Two New Jigsaw TV Spots

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.

Who that may be remains unknown, of course, but it’s important to note that neither Costas Mandylor nor Cary Elwes are set to feature here, so either there’s a new player in town after all, or this series is about to take an unexpected supernatural turn. Regardless, we can’t wait to see what the final twist will be and now, with the film set to arrive later this month, Lionsgate has begun to ramp up the promotion.

[Media] - "Jigsaw " New illustrated poster

Lionsgate has released a new illustrated poster for the upcoming "Jigsaw", the eighth film in the "Saw" horror franchise featuring the return of Tobin Bell. Like all of the films before it, Jigsaw will arrive just ahead of Halloween on October 27. The upcoming sequel, which fittingly comes seven years after "Saw: The Final Chapter", will star Laura Vandervoort ("Supergirl"), Hannah Emily Anderson, Brittany Allen, Clé Bennett ("Arrow"), Callum Keith Rennie ("Warcraft", "Battlestar Galactica"), Matt Passmore , Paul Braunstein ("The Thing"), Bonnie Siu ("Pacific Rim"), Sonia Dhillon Tully ("Brown Girl Begins") and Tobin Bell.

Sterile New Posters For Jigsaw Raise Awareness For A Good Cause

For a horror series renown for its grotesque, toe-curling deaths, Lionsgate’s Saw series actually helps save a lot of lives.

Since the franchise first flickered into life in 2004, the Saw Blood Drive has been a time-honored tradition that encourages film fans to donate blood at various locations across the United States, and it’ll be returning next month to commemorate the release of Jigsaw.

Coming by way of Daybreakers duo Michael and Peter Spierig, Jigsaw is a horror sequel that raises some reasonable question marks over Saw: The Final Chapter‘s evocative, and seemingly conclusive title. Nevertheless, John Kramer is back – or, at least, his disciples are back – for a horror spiel involving sick, twisted traps and mutilated corpses. Wanna’ play a game?

As for the Jigsaw Blood Drive, those brave participants who donate blood for what is undoubtedly a great cause will receive a free ticket to bear

Final Jigsaw Poster Will Give You The Chills

Are you ready 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, it looks certain that John Kramer has gathered together a band of disciples to continue
