I actually sat and watched all 25 previous James Bond movies (yes, counting Sean Connery’s Never Say Never Again) during the first month of “lockdown” in April of 2020.

Chris Rock and Samuel L. Jackson Star in A New Movie ‘Saw’. Check Out First Teaser. (Video)
The new film in the Saw franchise starring Chris Rock has dropped its first trailer! The film is titled, Spiral, and also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Marisol Nichols and Max Minghella.
Chris Rock stars as a detective who stumbles across Jigsaw’s game from the outside and tries to track down the killer to solve the mystery, all seemingly while the other events of the previous “Saw” films seem to be taking place. It’s unclear whether the film is explicitly a sequel, prequel or spinoff, but it is a passion project for Rock, who executive produced “Spiral” and based the story off of his own love for the franchise.
Samuel L. Jackson will play Rock’s father in the film who likewise gets sucked into Jigsaw’s violent and bloody game. Max Minghella will play William Schenk, Rock’s partner on the police force, and Marisol Nichols will play Capt. Angie Garza, Rock’s boss.
“You want to play a game mother f—er,”
Jackson says in the trailer. We then see Rock handcuffed to a rusty pipe with a bone saw in his hand as the trailer ends.
Darren Lynn Bousman is directing the film based on Rock’s story and adapted into a screenplay by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg.
Lionsgate is releasing the film this summer, moving it up five months from October to now opening on May 15, 2020.
