Leaked trailer is out over on reddit. Lionsgate should get an official version up ASAP.

It is just a teaser, but it looks cool to me.

Spiral – In Theaters May 15, 2020. Starring Chris Rock, Max Minghella, Marisol Nichols, and Samuel L. Jackson.

A sadistic mastermind unleashes a twisted form of justice in SPIRAL, the terrifying new chapter from the book of SAW. Working in the shadow of 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.

I'm interested. From that trailer, I already know who the killer is.

Seeing some familiar locations there. Not necessarily from previous movies, but from around the city here. I like the visuals. Looks like they're finally dropping that shot-in-Canada TV movie aesthetic that plagued nearly all the SAW movies after the first one, in spite of the gore.

After the last one came out, if someone had told me that the next movie would star Chris Rock and Samuel L. Jackson, I would have thought they were crazy.

Seems too obvious as to how this one will play out especially after that trailer.

Of course I'll see it. I've seen and own every Saw movie. I hope that Rock does add some kind of different spin to this.

But, judging by that teaser, am I off base thinking this is a prequel? It looks like maybe it's set in the 1990s?

There are modern cars in the trailer.

What is everyone finding very obvious about the trailer?

At best, I would've expected the other Mandylor, so this seems a marked improvement.

Obviously, anyone in the movie could be. But what is so apparently obvious in the trailer that makes it seem that way?

Also, I'm reminded by a role he played in that film with Daniel Radcliffe called "Horns." Call it a hunch.

The partner had a shiny face like he is a real life Billy the Puppet ready to Spiral downward.

I didn't even reply to your post. Kick rocks, dude! It was the BMF I asked why to.

For the sake of just guessing bullshit, Mariol Nichols isn't in the trailer, so she's the killer! Oh, and while we're at it, one of the black characters is related to Danny Glover's, because... why not?

Why does this have to tie to Saw franchise? For fucks sake just have a nice serial killer movie with Jackson and Rock. That’s all we need. If it’s good we’ll see it, but let the franchise die, like Jigsaw in what the 3rd movie??

I guess being a “producer” has its benefits. What those are, I have no idea. I guess resurrecting movies that should be long dead. With Rock coming up in Fargo, I’m sure he could’ve picked better...

I wasn’t immediately sure of the killer from the trailer but I’m guessing the suspicion of

Samuel L. Jackson

being the killer is because

He repeats Jigsaw’s famous line

.

Of course, I just took that spot on the trailer as a callback to the original series.

The whole movie was Rock's idea. He came up with the story.
