John Kramer is Back in First Trailer for ‘Saw X’

Joey and Myles must be rejoicing. Lionsgate has released the first trailer for Saw X, which sees Tobin Bell not only return as the iconic Jigsaw / John Kramer, but has a starring role, to boot. Synnøve Macody Lund, Steven Brand, Michael Beach, and Renata Vaca co-star with Bell, while Shawnee Smith also returns to the franchise. Kevin Greutert directs for the third time.

Here is the synopsis for Saw X: “John Kramer (Tobin Bell) is back. The most disturbing installment of the SAW franchise yet explores the untold chapter of Jigsaw’s most personal game. Set between the events of SAW I and II, a sick and desperate John travels to Mexico for a risky and experimental medical procedure in hopes of a miracle cure for his cancer – only to discover the entire operation is a scam to defraud the most vulnerable. Armed with a newfound purpose, the infamous serial killer returns to his work, turning the tables on the con artists in his signature visceral way through devious, deranged, and ingenious traps.”

Saw X hits theaters on. The trailer is below:

“Set between the events of Saw I and II…”

If you were born between the release of the first Saw and Saw II, you will be old enough to vote in next year’s presidential election. Imagine if, in 2004, 20th Century Fox had released a mid-quel that was set after the events of Romancing the Stone but before The Jewel of the Nile. And audiences were just expected to, like, know exactly what was going on.
