SDCC ’09: Saw VI Invades Comic-Con


Guest signings, exclusives and posters

The “motion poster” certainly kicked up some conversation (view it here), now let’s see what people have to say when Lionsgate unveils the surprises they have in store at Comic-Con this Thursday.

Lionsgate will be distributing tickets at the Lionsgate booth (#3729) – the first 100 people to hit the booth will be able to grab a ticket to a talent signing with Costas Mandylor (Detective Hoffman) and Betsy Russell (Jill Kramer) at 2pm. They will be autographing the never-before-seen Saw VI teaser poster.

The second signing will be held at 5pm with Tobin Bell (Jigsaw) where he will be signing an exlusive limited edition Comic Con Saw VI poster.

At the beginning of this signing, Tobin Bell will be introducing the world premiere of the Saw VI teaser trailer, which will simultaneously be streamed live on and in addition to the official SAW Facebook page.

Utilizing Microsoft’s mobile TAG technology, fans will be tattooed with a special tag that unlocks the first exclusive clip from SAW VI on their mobile phones; Lionsgate is encouraging everyone to download the program which allows them to use this technology on their mobile phone from this site NOW: Once the program is downloaded, fans will be able to take a photo of the tag which will direct them to a special mobile site that will allow them to view exclusive footage from Saw VI.

(Of course, fans will need to have a phone with CAMERAS and must be able to play video to experience this promotion! )

Additionally, fans will be able to visit the Lionsgate booth and get a preview of the upcoming Saw video game which will be released by Konami and Lionsgate October 6 on Playstation 3 and X Box. Not only will fans be able to grab free posters, they’ll also be encouraged to face off with JIGSAW. Whether or not they decide to take him on, fans will be encouraged to register to win a pair of tickets (with front of the line passes) to Universal’s new Halloween Horror Nights ride.
