Just in time for Halloween and to celebrate it’s 10th anniversary, Lionsgate will re-release the original “Saw”.
The original film, starring Cary Elwes and Danny Glover, will arrive in a select number of theatres for one week starting Oct. 31.
Synopsis: A sadistic killer named Jigsaw (Tobin Bell) traps victims who have to mutilate themselves to survive. The movie became something of a Halloween tradition and between 2004 and 2010, one film was released each year.
The first installment’s $103 million worldwide box-office take kicked off a franchise that has pulled in over $874 million to date.
The last Underworld movie staring Kate Beckinsale Underworld Awakening, came out in 2012. That was 2 years ago. So to me, a reboot makes no sense. But that’s how it goes. The franchise made over 458 million worldwide, so I guess Hollywood believes they can make another 458 million over the next decade or so. My prediction? The reboot will go directly to DVD/Blu-ray. We’ll see.
According to THR,Lakeshore Entertainment is moving forward with a reboot of the vampire action franchise, hiring Cory Goodman to write the script. Lakeshore’s Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi are producing.
Playing the strong vampire Selena made Beckinsale famous. There were three additional films after the original.In 2006 there was Underworld: Evolution, In 2009, Underworld: Rise of the Lycans and 2012 Underworld: Awakening.
Underworld: Awakening, was the top earner in the franchise, taking in $160 million worldwide.

From the Anchor Bay press release:
As the infectious epidemic spreads through India, an American turbine engineer (Joseph Millson) learns that his pregnant girlfriend is trapped near the slums of Mumbai. Now, one man must battle his way across a 300-mile wasteland of the ravenous undead and into a nightmare city seething with flesh-eating madness.
In a recent interview with TV Line, showrunner Scott Gimple had this to say about The Walking Dead’s upcoming season.
“Our show diverges from the comic book quite a bit. There is an aspect to these people’s lives that — they’re the ones that have to deal with the consequences. They’re the ones that are out there after a disaster, surviving, not necessarily the people — at least Rick’s group — who were like ‘OK we have to cure this thing.’ Abraham’s group is totally different. Now that they are coming together, we are going to see the story twist in ways that we hadn’t seen before. And roles are going to become very, very different than they’ve been before. There’s going to be a lot of shifts this season.”
The Walking Dead returns Oct.12th at 9pm. Look for an all day marathon prior to the premier.

“No Going Back” is available on PC, PS3, PS Vita, and Xbox 360. It’ll be available on the App Store for compatible iOS devices on Thursday, August 28.
