We're just days away from the May 14th theatrical release of Spiral: From the Book of Saw, and to help hold fans over until then, Lionsgate has unveiled the opening scene from the latest entry in the Saw franchise.
You can watch the opening scene below, and in case you missed it, read Heather Wixson's interview with director Darren Lynn Bousman.
"A criminal mastermind unleashes a twisted form of justice in Spiral, the terrifying new chapter from the book of Saw. Working in the shadow of his father, an esteemed police veteran (Samuel L. Jackson), brash Detective Ezekiel “Zeke” Banks (Chris Rock) and his rookie partner (Max Minghella) 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 center of the killer’s morbid game.
Spiral stars Chris Rock, Max Minghella, Marisol Nichols, and Samuel L. Jackson, and is produced by the original Saw team of Mark Burg and Oren Koules. The film is directed by Darren Lynn Bousman and written by Josh Stolberg & Pete Goldfinger.
A Lionsgate release, Twisted Pictures presents, a Burg/Koules production."
