Update: Saw VI red band clip, VII announced
I just posted the teaser trailer for the new film in the slightly tired franchise that promises never to die, just like Jigsaw himself, and it really didn't contain any footage at all.
Well I can change that as we see that carousel trap brought to life in a rather red band clip that explains the set-up, and boy does it look good. Could this be a return to form for the series? Has it really got more life left in it?
It looks like the series has plenty life in it as Variety reports that the seventh is set to move forward with David Hackl directing, he directed the fifth, and Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton are back from the last three films to write this next one. Here's to Saw VII, in the meantime let's look at Saw VI.
Unfortunately there's no embed in the link, and there's not much to say about it other than it looks pretty tense stuff and I love the tagline from Jigsaw:
"Two can live, four will die"
Might even be a tagline for the franchise itself.
Update: Please note that this clip was intended for a limited audience at Comic-Con who were all guaranteed to be of age. This clip hasn't been approved by the MPAA (or for that matter any other country's certification board) or Lionsgate. One of their publicists very nicely asked if we would remove it if we're hosting it because Lionsgate want to release the approved version of the clip very soon.
Well I'm not hosting it, but JoBlo still are. So feel free to head over there. Remember though that it's not approved by Lionsgate so it may not accurately represent the final film, and also it is obviously age restricted and if you're shocked or surprised you have been warned and it's not their fault. Or mine!
P.S. Let me just say thanks to Lionsgate and the publicist for sending a really nice email and request that treated me like an adult and engaged me rather then the usual lawyer threatening emails. Very well done, and you guys deserve a positive mention for that.
