UPDATE: I’ve added the first still from the film to the RopeofSilicon gallery. The pic is of Gina Holden as Joyce, and you can check it out right here.
On October 29 Lionsgate will release Saw 3D (aka Saw VII), the seventh and final film in the torture franchise and today IGN has debuted the teaser trailer for the film.
“It’s time to stop,” producer Oren Koules told USA Today, “We have told the story we wanted to tell, and this is going to be a great farewell.”
The film is directed by Kevin Greutert, much to his chagrin as was widely reported when Lionsgate wrestled him away from directing Paranormal Activity 2 for Paramount as both films were originally set to debut on October 22. However, Lionsgate was the first to blink in the game of release date chicken and has moved its date to October 29 where it will face-off against Wes Craven’s My Soul to Take as both hope to beat Paranormal in its second week.
The film was shot in 3D and the USA Today article points out it was re-edited and submitted six times to the MPAA to bring it from an NC-17 to an R rating.
The synopsis isn’t exactly clear on where the story goes from here, but it tells us a group of Jigsaw (Tobin Bell) survivors gather to seek the support of self-help guru and fellow survivor Bobby Dagen (Sean Patrick Flanery), a man whose own dark secrets unleash a new wave of terror… Producer Mark Burg adds, “It’s more violent than any of them. But it’s in 3D, it answers all the questions, it comes full circle. We have the goods on this one.”
Check out the teaser trailer directly below.
