Lionsgate has released a trailer for Spiral: From the Book of Saw - a horror film that acts as a reboot to the Saw franchise. The studio has pumped out nine movies in the Saw franchise since the original way back in 2004, so it’s safe to say that Jigsaw has started to lose his scare factor by now. 

Watch the trailer:

While the Saw movies are famous for their gory escape room-like horror premises, this trailer paints Spiral as a True Detective-like mystery thriller instead. The official synopsis reads:

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.

It certainly sounds like Jigsaw is going to return, but who knows? Even if this reboot goes badly, at least we got this cool poster out of it:

I mean, that's just gorgeous. Spiral will hit theatres on May 15, 2020
