Each week in October will see the release of a new round of re-designed theatrical art for the forthcoming re-release of James Wan’s Saw. Come inside and check out the latest round of artwork after the jump. This marks the fifth of five limited-edition collectable posters that have debuted weekly, leading up to today’s 10 year anniversary re-release of Saw. LionsGate is providing theater goers a chance to get their hands on a copy of this NEW poster at participating AMC, Regal, Cinemark, and Carmike cinemas.
With this theatrical re-release of Saw, a whole new generation of horror fans will have the opportunity to see the film on the big screen. In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the game changing film, Saw returns to theaters for one week beginning today, October 31, 2014.
Saw marks the horror film debut of powerhouse director James Wan (The Conjuring) and the first feature film collaboration between Wan and Saw co-writer Leigh Whannell.
Made as an independent feature on a limited budget, Saw was eventually acquired by LionsGate for nationwide theatrical distribution. After LionsGate’s acquisition of the film, it went on to gross over $50 Million at the box office. Saw represents the first feature to spawn a franchise for the LionsGate brand. The film has inspired a total of six sequels and introduced the world to the Jigsaw killer.
Saw follows the plight of two men that wake up trapped in an unfamiliar room, restrained by chains – a dead body lies between them. The pair are given a series of specific instructions by which they must abide and tasks they must complete if they are to make it out with their lives intact. Their will to live and resolve will be tested and their survival will ultimately depend on how much they are willing to sacrifice.
