My first thought was - wait, the "first" photo? Didn't we already see three posters and a teaser trailer for Saw VI? Yes we have, but there's a reason why Lionsgate chose to release this one. What you see below is obviously another trap, but could it, no, it can't be Jigsaw can it? Its got to be someone else, just disguised by that mask, because Jigsaw is dead! Here's a new synopsis: Special Agent Strahm is dead, and Detective Hoffman has emerged as the unchallenged successor to Jigsaw's legacy. However, when the FBI draws closer to Hoffman, he is forced to set a game into motion, and Jigsaw's grand scheme is finally understood.
We previously debuted the first teaser trailer for Saw VI back in July. And if you're a die hard fan of the series, a clip from the movie was also debuted back during Comic-Con that is definitely worth checking out!
Saw VI is directed by first-time feature filmmaker Kevin Greutert, who edited all five of the previous Saw movies before this and directed a few horror short films. The screenplay was written by Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, who broke out with Feast and subsequently wrote Saw IV and Saw V as well. Lionsgate is bringing this latest installment, Saw VI, to theaters everywhere on October 23rd, a year from the last one.
