Recently we found out that a new movie in the Saw franchise was on the way, and that it would be titled Jigsaw.
Now Lionsgate has released the first trailer for the eighth movie in the franchise, and the first since what was once said to be the series’ last entry, Saw: The Final Chapter way back in 2010. You can see how the new movie looks below.
Did you think the Saw franchise was going to die with the seventh movie, as it once seemed like it might? No, of course you didn’t. No one did. Plus, its return has been whispered about for some time now. The franchise did remain sleeping, to its credit, for longer than expected. But now it is ready to rise from its seven-year slumber.
Lionsgate has confirmed an official title for the next movie in the series, as well as a release date. You can find both below.
It feels like just yesterday that we were hearing that Saw 3D would be the final movie in the Saw franchise, and we all collectively laughed and laughed knowing it was about as far from the truth as could be.
See, the plain and simple fact is that as much as people complain about the unoriginality of Hollywood, more people pay their hard-earned coin to see the sequels and remakes and reboots we all despise so much than most anything else.
And so, with that, comes the first wink of an eye hinting toward another Saw movie. It’s not much, but it confirms what we’ve known all along: more sequels or possibly even some kind of reboot can’t be too far off.
Back in July the first teaser trailer for Saw VII, now known as Saw 3D, was released, but didn’t show a whole lot. Now fans of the franchise have their first real look with the arrival of the first full trailer.
At the time, the movie was said to be called Saw 3D: The Traps Come Alive, but thankfully it looks like the sub-title was demoted to a tagline. It was also revealed back in April that Carey Elwes would finally be returning to the world of the Jigsaw killer after his mysterious exit from the original film, and you do get a little glimpse of him in this new trailer.

The first trailer for Lionsgate’s Saw VII has been released online via IGN. The movie has made plenty of news lately with the announcement that original star Carey Elweswould be returning as Dr. Gordon and also word that the new movie would be calledSaw VII at all, but Saw 3D: The Traps Come Alive. Judging by the trailer, they may have even dropped the silly title and settled on Saw 3D, though “The Traps Come Alive” does make an appearance.
The trailer is your typical Saw trailer: lots of scary images of people stuck in diabolical traps that will likely end their lives in messy fashion set to the sounds of some terrifying Jigsaw killer voice over. If that’s not enough to grab your attention then you’re probably not big on Saw to begin with and are not reading this sentence right now.
