Check This Out: First Saw V Teaser Poster!
This is just sick! Lionsgate has released the first teaser poster for the upcoming Saw V. Thus begins the hype yet again for the next installment in the Saw series, which I will say continues to impress me with its consistent box office performance for five straight years in a row. If you haven't seen Saw IV, you won't get why this poster is what it is. But if you have, you might get the same combination of thoughts: ridiculously gross and awesome at the same time. This is why I love the Saw series - they continue to push the boundaries of accepted filmmaking and marketing in Hollywood. If you've got the stomach to handle it, then check out this poster, but if not, I'd suggest you stay far away.
Thanks to STYD for debuting this. I wonder if it will be banned once people start to realize what it is?
In Saw V, Hoffman (Costas Mandylor) is seemingly the last person alive to carry on the Jigsaw (Tobin Bell) legacy. But when his secret is threatened, Hoffman must go on the hunt to eliminate all loose ends. The full cast also includes Scott Patterson, Betsy Russell, Mark Rolston, Carlo Rota, Julie Benz, Greg Bryk, Laura Gordon and Meagan Good.
Saw V is directed by production designer David Hackl, who will be making his directorial debut. The script was written by screenwriting duo Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan of Feast and Saw IV. As is always the tradition, Lionsgate will be releasing Saw V in theaters around Halloween - October 24th.
