New Saw 3D trailer reaches new levels of stupid

Sep. 10, 2010by: Mike Sampson

I've seen a lot of stupid things this year. COP OUT, LeBron James' "The Decision," the finale of "Lost"...but this might very well be the stupidest thing I've seen all year. It's the new trailer for SAW 3D and it basically serves two purposes: 1) to remind you what 3D is and how it works, and 2) to convince you this is the last SAW movie. Yes we're all aware that in a 3D movie we sit in a theater with glasses on while sh*t flies out of the screen and into our faces. But this trailer seems to indicate that things will literally (literally) break the fourth wall, come out of the movie screen LAST ACTION HERO style and kill us.

Then of course there is the ridiculous notion that this is the last SAW movie. Thassa good one. Perhaps I'm being a bit harsh in judging SAW 3D but considering the director himself, Kevin Greutert, was so pissed off at being contractually obligated to direct this film that he compared it to being "raped by your dad," I feel like I'm really not being that harsh at all. Check out the new trailer below (or click here to see it in HD at Yahoo! Movies) and see if it annoys you as much as it annoyed me.

Extra Tidbit: If it turns out that SAW 3D is the last SAW film ever, I'll eat my hat. (Little known fact: I wear a hamburger for a hat.)

ok seriously just report the damn article like you are suppossed & leave your opinions out the door, you are the only writer on joblo who does this, did you seriously put that the director was pissed off, is that a fact, do you have a source. very poor journalism on your behalf.

Oh and MY opinion is it was cool until the audience stuff showed up, i mean really?

Also, the trailer looks great until it displays the cheesy 3D stuff. But luckily, that junk won't be in the film. It's there strictly to advertise the 3D element.

Kevin Greutert is a diva. Fuck him! SAW is too good for him. In actuality though, SAW 6 was one of the best in the series, but I think the directing has always been a little derivative and generic in the James Wan SAW sense. Still, I love these movies, and Greutert can go fuck his hat.

Does the 1980's 3D advertising still work...?

No.

Regardless, I've seen every Saw film opening day, and I must complete my journey, good or bad.

I am a HUGE fan of the SAW Series and there's not too much you could do to make SAW look bad, but this trailer is one of those things. as a fan I would love to see the series go out graciously so I hope this is the last.

"Stupid" isn't insulting enough! How about "Cash Grab?"

It should have been over after Part 3. It wrapped it up nicely. Now it's beyond a joke, it's pathetic & insulting. To hear the director say that makes you not want to see it even more. He really made sure he never works w/Lionsgate again, that's for sure.

Ugh

As much of a Die Hard as I am for the Saw Franchise, I've had my fingers crossed for a while now that they don't fuck this installment up. Needless to say most of my hope is gone. They change the title, they resort to corny 3D cash-ins to combat Paranormal Activity 2, and even the director is unhappy. Hard to say that they're going to make this film work, but I guess we'll all find out on the 22nd

wow....that was beyond cheesy and ridiculous. But i've always enjoyed these films, no matter how obviously crappy most of them are. So i'll be there for sure to witness, what hopefully is, the last saw film.

While a lot of it is very lame, it's nice to see more of the traps and Dr. Gordon in the film. While the series has lost a lot of steam, I will watch to the very last one just to get some conclusion to this series. I say this every time, and I will say it again: this is like the modern day Friday or Nightmare. And if you're a fan of the franchise, then you really just gotta stick it to the end. Still think the 3D is absolutely unnecessary, so, I plan to watch the film without it if possible.

Do You Want To Play A Game?

"You have entered the theatre for the new Saw movie. This one is in 3D, so you will have to wear stupid 3D glasses and watch as we throw things at you. You may want to leave, but you paid extra money to see this in 3D. Game Over."

"Oh, and because of the extra money we made from your 3D tickets, we are going to make more Saw films and you will inevitably be drawn in again and again. Hahahahahahahahaha!!!!!"

There, I just summed up this movie for everyone. They are right about one

It's gotten to the point where I don't even have anything to say about the Saw movies anymore.

The trailer was like some cheesy-ass commercial for a Disney World attraction. It wasn't even really a trailer. Anyway, I learned that I could skip all the films entirely and just watch the trap/death scenes on Youtube. Because frankly, who gives a shit about the stuff inbetween?

Exactly what I was thinking. Couldn't tell if this was a trailer for the movie or the Universal Studios attraction.

If its true...

Then all the "fans", creators and marketers of these movies will watch it and get killed at the end, making it the final movie indeed. That would be a good ending, IMHO.

I stopped at 4

Since they never opened the stupid box and the enormous plot holes. This one has potential but that truly was a new level of stupid. It will amuse me all day. It was like a commercial for Universal Studios theme park, but even with those you know the Mummy ain't really gonna git'cha.

I really hope the director didn't blow this opportunity to finish the franchise off with a brilliant finale. I mean for God's sake they got Cary Elwes back so the storyline with Dr. Gordon will FINALLY be resolved after six years and this could be as great as the first one, but his comments really worry me. It goes without saying, if your heart isn't in something you're going to half-ass it.

Forget all the haters. I am in the minority for liking these movies and I don't care. I think this has potential to be one of the best SAW movies yet.

By the way the LOST finale wasn't stupid. It ended the way, it only could have ended. Tired of people bitchin' that it was dumb, stupid, or lazy.

Is that trap set up in the front display of a shop? If so, did Jigsaw phone up the shop and say "Hi, I'd like to set up some sinister-looking mechanical device, purpose unknown, in your front window. I'd better pay you in advance, because I've already planned to have some unwitting pawn in my cunningly stupid masterplan sever my carotid artery in a fortnight's time"...?

WTF

I only got up to pt3....but it looks like the franchise is expanding from 3D to actually murdering you for going to see it...which I am more than sure sitting thru it will be like ripping your eye's from your skull...sounds fun.

P.S.....Last and final SAW....ya right!
