Not to be outdone by 5nal Destination, Saw VII gets a title change

07.09.2010

A SAW tradition is ending at last. No, not the fact that a new one comes out every Halloween, I expect my grandchildren to be watching SAW movies someday. Rather, the series is doing away with the traditional roman numerals on the end of its title for its seventh installment. So what’s it called now?

SAW 3D THE TRAPS COME ALIVE

No, this is not some unbelievably stupid rumor as the studio has actually confirmed the title switch according to Shock Till You Drop. In case you hadn’t realized it, the next Saw movie is in 3D, and I guess they felt the need to not only put that in the title, but actually have it also explain what that means for the series as the traps will uh, come alive it seems with the help of the new format.

How would this work when applied to other 3D movies? Would you be interested in seeing ALICE IN WONDERLAND 3D A CAT FLOATS IN FRONT OF YOUR FACE? How about CLASH OF THE TITANS 3D GET BITCH SLAPPED BY A KRAKEN? Or maybe AVATAR 3D YOU CAN ALMOST TOUCH THIS BLUE CHICK’S BOOB?

Extra Tidbit: It's only a matter of time before this franchise moves to space. Oh wait, that was called CUBE.

People, you're missing the point.

Whether the title does or does not suck is irrelevant. What we should be directing our collective attention to is finding out how many executives, writers, and producers need to be summarily executed to ensure that Hollywood never even thinks of making another Saw sequel ever again.

TITANIC 3D JACK AND ROSE SPIT IN YOUR EYE DURING ROMANTIC SPITTING CONTEST.

Hey whatya' know, they managed to add the synopsis in the title, making it a tinopsis. That's revolutionary, man.

Don't hate on Cube.

Plus, Cube does not take place in outer space. So, what do you mean?

Come On!

There is no way that is real. Are they affraid that dumb ass America doesn't know what VII means?!?!?!?!?! Did a 5 year old come up with that while eating his lunch?

I'll be the first to admit that the Saw films as of late really haven't been on par with the first couple of ones, but WTF is this title about? I'm one of the few who still enjoys the saw films heavily, and have seen every saw opening day (somehow became a tradition.)

This is a worse title than something going direct to

If they decide to continue the series (and I'm sure they will) what will Saw 8 be called? Saw 3D 2? So fucking stupid...

I know I'm in the minority of people who actually enjoy the Saw movies...but this is just fucking stupid. Stick with the roman numerals. Why change now? It does NOT need to be in 3D, and even if it did there is NO need to use "3D" in the title. It's Saw VII!!!!

Go Away

What happened to 1 original idea that spawns a talented collective that make a great movie that becomes a cult hit/classic?

Bad sequels destroy.

Its Saw 3D

Actually it is some unbelievably stupid rumor. The producers have confirmed the actual title is Saw 3D. "The Traps Come Alive" is just the tagline.

Like slapshot63 said, that is the tagline, not the title. I'm really stoked for this since Cary Elwes has reprised his role as Dr. Gordon. Finally, we will know his fate and all the loose ends will be completely tied up.

Actually

This isn't the title. It was reported incorrectly. It's now just "Saw 3D" and "The Traps Come Alive" is the tagline.

The one upside to the news of this new title: the Saw series has done more to expedite the extinction of 3D then any other film released so far...and it doesn't come out for 3 months!

This is a laugh out loud funny article for two reasons: 1) obviously, the title of the damn movie, and 2) Paul Tassi. Why doesn't this guy write more articles?

Unless the traps literally come alive and the twist is that the entire SAW franchise is just an elaborate setup for a more hardcore series of TRANSFORMERS films... I'll continue to pass.

Stupid, stupid, stupid

As a huge Saw fan, I think this is a terrible title. I thought, "For once, a horror movie series that keeps it simple and just keeps numbering their sequels." Now they pull this shit and it's a dumbass title to boot. I'm still gonna see it, but god is that title stupid.

I wouldn't mind watching the people who actually paid to see this get their legs snapped off. That'd be payback for wasting your money.

And kudos on the hilarious tidbit.
