Lionsgate gifted a spine-chilling surprise to Saw franchise diehards, announcing a revamp in Saw X release dates, advancing the film by a good month - as reported by ComingSoon.net.
A Shocking Reveal: September 29 Launch Date!
"Jigsaw" is returning earlier than you thought! This past Thursday, Lionsgate startled fans with the advance release date confirmation of Saw X - an anxious wait will now end on September 29, a whole month sooner than its prior announced date.
Adding suspense to the anticipation, Lionsgate also unveiled the first glimpse of the film, featuring Tobin Bell reprising his terrifying role as the infamous character Jigsaw/John Kramer. A newly released synopsis for the horror movie also shed light on Kramer's journey to Mexico in the plot, defying a scheme tailored to defraud numerous unsuspecting subjects.
The Revived Nightmare: New Synopsis Unveiled!
"Set between the events of Saw I and II, a sick and desperate John travels to Mexico seeking a dangerous and experimental medical treatment as a last resort for his cancer," explained the official synopsis for Saw X. "But the entire operation turns out to be a huge scam preying on the vulnerable. With a renewed resolve, the notorious serial killer comes back to his deeds in his characteristically gruesome way, setting up clever, deranged traps for the fraudsters."
The film is set to star a host of globally acclaimed actors including Renata Vaca, Paulette Hernandez, Joshua Okamoto, and Octavio Hinojosa, Synnøve Macody Lund, Steven Brand, Michael Beach, and of course, Tobin Bell.
Saw X will see Kevin Greutert, known for directing Saw VI and Saw: The Final Chapter, back behind the camera.
The latest Saw film, Spiral, penned by Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger and directed by Darren Lynn Bousman received a lukewarm response. Considered a disappointment, the film only managed to rake in nearly $40 million at the box office.
The return of Tobin Bell as Jigsaw and Lionsgate pushing the release date of Saw X a month early, might be precisely what the horror franchise needs for a spectacular comeback!
