With vaccines rolling out and theaters re-opening, Lionsgate has set a new release date for the horror reboot, Spiral: From the Book of Saw.
It’s not a big move, but as things are slowly getting a bit better, Lionsgate has gone ahead and made the decision bump their upcoming Saw reboot/revival a little bit early (I’m sure it has nothing to do with Black Widow suddenly moving out of the May spot). Spiral: From the Book of Saw will now launch on May 14, 2021 to help kick off the return of the Summer season.
“With movie theaters now open in New York and Los Angeles and moviegoers returning to their favorite pastime, Spiral, starring Chris Rock and Samuel L. Jackson, puts a fresh spin on a favorite franchise,” said Spitz. “We know that Saw fans, as well as those experiencing their first Saw adventure, will be on the edge of their seats with this thrilling new film. We are proud to support the exhibitors with one of our most eagerly awaited films. We are confident this film will kick off a robust summer moviegoing season.”
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.
