Yesterday Lionsgate started a brand new game with the first ever trailer for Jigsaw, which sets a trap for audiences on October 27, 2017. Much like the previous seven SAW films, the trailer makes it look as if the film is sharply edited, making it difficult to catch some of the coolest shots in it. Thankfully, we got our hands on a crazy high-resolution version of the first footage and were able to pluck out 85 sweet shots to share. I love the Jigsaw copycat’s workshop as well as Billy the puppet’s new look. And yes, he does look pretty creepy…
In the new film…
Bodies are turning up, and they’re linked to Jigsaw — or a Jigsaw copycat.
The new chapter in the long-running saga has been rated “R” for “Grisly Bloody Violence and Torture.”
We understand that neither Costas Mandylor nor Cary Elwes will be returning to play their respective characters, who both ended up becoming Jigsaw apprentices in earlier installments. As for the original Jigsaw himself, Tobin Bell will be back 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). In the director’s chairs were the Spierig brothers, Peter and Michael, who brought us Daybreakers and Predestination.
