Lionsgate open to future “Saw” films

It’s easy to argue that the “Saw” franchise is the biggest horror film series of our generation. The seventh installment, “Saw 3D” was released in 2010 and promised to be the last in the series, but we never really expected that to last. This past year was the first time Lionsgate didn’t release a new “Saw” flick for Halloween in the past eight years, and now it seems like the franchise is seeing some renewed life. In a recent interview, an exec at Lionsgate said the company is open to an eighth film for the franchise.

“I’m sure, some day, you’ll see ‘Saw’ back in the picture,” Lionsgate Vice Chairman Michael Burns recently told CNBC, according to Bloody Disgusting.

It’s an interesting use of words, though. Burns easily could have said, “Oh yeah, we have a new ‘Saw’ film lined up for next year,” but instead he makes it sound like the series is on an indefinite hiatus. That could be a good thing, considering it seems as though many have become exhausted with the franchise, but at least they always delivered the same sort of solid entertainment that the “Friday the 13th” or “Nightmare on Elm Street” series did. Sure, the latter installments weren’t the greatest, but at least you know what you’re getting into.

Hopefully Lionsgate opts out of rebooting the series or making a prequel if they do end up restarting the “Saw” franchise. Just keep them coming like they have been. Attendance has dipped from around $80 million per movie for “Saw II” and “Saw III” to around $50 million for “Saw V” and “Saw 3D” (“Saw VI” only saw a pitilful $27 million), so the movies could use a bit of a revival. We’d like to see them do it the good ol’ fashioned way by hiring better writers and getting a solid script, instead of just opting for cheap thrills like 3D and people having to sift through their own intestines, though.

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
