First Trailer: “Jigsaw”

Ahead of its Comic Con presentation this weekend, Lionsgate has brought online the first trailer for “Jigsaw,” the upcoming eighth film in the “Saw” horror film franchise.

Coming seven years after the previous entry, the new film looks like an attempt at moving away from the torture porn saga of the sequels and towards the more high concept tone of the original that started it all. The film’s directors have labelled it less vicious, more fun and with a bigger sense of mystery than previous films.

Directed by The Spierig Brothers, the film stars Mandela Van Peebles, Laura Vandervoort, Brittany Allen, Callum Keith Rennie, Matt Passmore, Hannah Emily Anderson, Josiah Black, Shaquan Lewis, Michael Bolsvert, James Gomez, and Tobin Bell.

“Jigsaw” opens in cinemas on October 27th.
