While I’m not really all that interested in the latest installment in the Saw franchise, I still feel compelled to share the teaser trailer that debuted at Comic-Con. I’m not even sure what the plot’s supposed to be in this movie, but I do know it can’t possibly directly involve Jigsaw, the shining star in this series. Therefore, I’m not interested. For those of you that are, click below for the teaser.
From Bloody Disgusting comes the final official synopsis for Saw V, the fourth sequel in the twisted horror franchise. It says,
In the fifth installment of the popular Saw franchise, Hoffman is seemingly the last person alive to carry on the Jigsaw legacy. But when his secret is threatened, Hoffman must go on the hunt to eliminate all loose ends.
Since I wasn’t all that invested in Hoffman (Costas Mandylor) to begin with, an entire movie about him killing people isn’t nearly as interesting as Jigsaw putting people in deadly traps so that in the event they escape, they appreciate their life more.
For the first time, I’m not really all that interested in a Saw sequel. I mean, seriously…”carry on the Jigsaw legacy”? He’s not carrying on Jigsaw’s legacy. He’s murdering people to keep them quiet. Jigsaw had a reason, however twisted, for the things he did. And that was what made him, and the original few films, so compelling.
We heard about the first round of casting for Saw V last month. A new person has been added to the cast, according to UGO Movie Blog. Her name is Meagan Good, and she’s been in a handful of movies, including Brick, Stomp the Yard, and Mike Myers’ upcoming comedy The Love Guru.
Good will be playing a city planner that comes from money. Saw V will be in theaters October 24th, 2008.
Ok, so she’s not actually remaking more movies, but she did do a nice recreation photo shoot of several horror movies (much better than Lindsay Lohan’s recreations of classic Marilyn Monroe portraits).
She posed in recreations of scenes from The Birds, Psycho, and even Scream (at left). /Film has the images, originally taken for Latina magazine.
As a recent fan of Juno and a huge fan of Cillian Murphy, I was psyched to see that they’ll be in a movie together. Even better news is that Murphy will be playing a person with split personality disorder who believes his two personalities are husband and wife. Cillian has an amazing range as an actor, and I’m sure this is a role that will allow him to show off his talents.
Page plays a young mother in the town who instigates a battle between Murphy’s personalities.
