Spiral: From the Book of Saw trailer: Chris Rock and Samuel L. Jackson star in a reboot of the classic horror series
If the title wasn’t bad enough, the launch hasn’t started too well for the reboot of the Saw series, with the Spiral: From the Book of Saw trailer leaking online yesterday. This will be the ninth film in the franchise and comes a couple of years after the last entry, Jigsaw, which got quite the kicking from critics on release. Chris Rock stars and is also one of the producers, taking on a more serious role than we've seen previously. We'll have to see if he carries it off as not much is revealed in this first look. Hit play above to see the Spiral: From the Book of Saw trailer.
Working in the shadow of an esteemed police veteran, brash Detective Ezekiel “Zeke” Banks and his rookie partner take charge of a grisly investigation into murders that are eerily reminiscent of the city’s gruesome past. Unwittingly entrapped in a deepening mystery, Zeke finds himself at the centre of the killer’s morbid game.
Darren Bousman returns to direct another Saw film, with Marisol Nichols and Max Minghella featuring in support of Jackson and Rock.
Spiral: From the Book of Saw arrives in US on May 15, with a UK date still to come.
