Question: What do the movies Saw VI, Extract, Gamer, A Serious Man, Whiteout, The Hole, and Law Abiding Citizen have in common? They all have new posters that Screen Rant has for your viewing pleasure, that’s what!

First up is Saw VI, yet another installment in the surprisingly highly successful torture-porn horror franchise, Saw. Maybe it’s the fact that they kicked off this kind of horror movie trend, maybe it’s the marketing, who knows, but for some reason people keep going to see these movies. They lost any intellectual stimulation for the audience a few movies ago, and it’s now all really about how to cram as much gorey traps into the runtime as possible. Saw VI looks to be no different.

The posters show of a peculiar and sinister looking nurse with some sort of weird prosthetic half-face mask. Ever since the first movie, this “Blood Drive” ad campaign has been going on (you can check out some of the rest here, here and here), and this may just be the best example yet. Even if the sixth Saw turns out to be crap (as I suspect it will), I’ve gotta admit these posters are effectively creepy. Check them both out:

Saw VI hits theatres on October 23rd, 2009.

Next we have the new character posters for the new Mike Judge’s (Office Space) comedy, Extract. The film follows Jason Bateman’s character who’s on the verge of selling his flavor extract factory when a freak accident sets in motion a series of events that puts his personal and professional life at risk. I’m sure Judge has some funny tricks up his sleeve for that premise.

The trailer for the film looked really funny, and I like the cast that includes Bateman, Ben Affleck, Kristin Wiig and Mila Kunis. Here’s a couple of the character posters, featuring Bateman and Affleck:

For the other two character posters featuring Kristin Wiig and Mila Kunis, you can head over to Collider. Extract is due out on September 4th, 2009.

Next is Gamer, the new Mark Nevaldine and Brian Taylor (Crank) written/directed, Gerard Butler starring action flick. It’s one we’ve covered a fair bit here at Screen Rant, and I, for one, think that all the stuff we’ve seen so far from it has looked kick ass. The latest poster is pretty cool – I really dig the contrast between the carnage at the top and the… beauty at the bottom. Check it out for yourself:

Gamer is scheduled to be released on September 4th, 2009.

The Coen brothers are back this year with another film that is more in the style of The Big Lebowski and Raising Arizona than it is No Country for Old Men and Fargo. A Serious Man follows a man (he’s serious, ya’ know…) who seeks the advice of three very different rabbis because of problems he’s having at work and in his personal life. I’m not quite sure what to make of the first poster for it – I like it… but am not sure why. See what you make of it:

A Serious Man is out in limited release in the US on October 2nd, and on November 20th in the UK, both in 2009.

We reported on the first trailer for the new Kate Beckinsale thriller, Whiteout, last month and it looked pretty damn good. It’s set in, “the world’s most remote landmass… that has no permanent population,” aka Antarctica. It follows a U.S. Marshall (the ever-lovely Beckinsale) who’s tracking a killer amidst a location with harsh conditions (to say the least!). Here’s a new, very striking poster for the movie:

“See your last breath”

Nice! Whiteout is released on September 11th, 2009.

Next we have the upcoming Joe Dante (Gremlins) directed 3D thriller, The Hole. It’s about a pair of brothers who stumble across a mysterious hole in the basement of their new house which leads to the “darkest corridors of their fears and nightmares.”

Now, I really hope that’s not euphemistic in any way…

Here is the rather uninteresting poster for what sounds like an interesting premise:

The Hole currently doesn’t have a release date.

Last up we have two posters for a new Gerard Butler (the only actor to make two appearances in this slew of posters) and Jamie Foxx drama/thriller, Law Abiding Citizen. It’s about an everyday man (Butler) who decides to get justice after a legal loopholes allow his family’s killer to walk free. A corrupt prosecutor (Jamie Foxx) finds himself at the mercy of the vengeful man. The film is written by Kurt Wimmer (Equilibrium) and directed by F. Gary Gray (The Italian Job). Here are the two posters:

Law Abiding Citizen opens on October 16th, 2009, in the US, and on March 26th, 2010, in the UK.

Wow, that was A LOT of posters! Which do you like best?

  1. Kurt Wimmer? Does that mean we get to see Girard Butler do gun katas?? :-D

  2. Call me crazy but THE HOLE poster is pretty scary. Gives off Silent Hill 4 vibe.

    SAW is just sad at this point. Obviously going for “shock” then for actual substance.

  3. “SAW is just sad at this point. Obviously going for “shock” then for actual substance”

    Have they ever been anything more than that???

  4. KEN J

    Yeah, the first SAW was actually a great thriller. Very suspenseful and some scary movements. After the 2nd one I couldn’t watch any of them.

    MATT

    Yes, “torture porn” is just a label. It is convenient and somewhat narrow minded to label these movies as torture porn. BUUUUT, it fits well with movies like SAW and HOSTEL. I completely support it because these movies think that gore is what makes a movie scary and a lot of times the plot, characters, etc. are put on the back burner. Recent horror movies, for the most part, have been dumbed down to shock value. True horror movies, the ones that stay with you, always focus more on the story, the characters, the suspense.

  5. ogb, you know, saw blades are typically made out of hardened steel while pipes are not. They could have simply sawed through the pipe… How do you think they installed plumbing before power tools?? ;-)

    That would have been hilarious.

    They wake up in the room, and the guy tries to play games with them. One guy starts to saw through the pipe, it takes a while, but eventually gets through, and then yanks the handcuff through the gap. Boy that would be disappointing for the guy that have been senselessly lying there motionless for the entire however many hours. I would have picked up the gun and shot the “body” to be sure it’s dead too, hey, why not? LMAO, that would have been a wrench in his master plan, HAHAHA. :-D

    The End, no more Saw movies… ;-)

  6. Aw, matt’s feelings are hurt, say you’re sorry ross, you’re such a meanie… :-P

  7. Everyone, welcome Matt to the auto-moderation list! 8)

    Vic

  8. Cool posters.

    The Hole 3D, yeah I’ve already been there,,, 8-O

  9. We don’t want to hear that story 790, lol. :-D

  10. Heehee,,,

  11. when are they going to call SAW the title it needs like SAW 6 beating a dead horse

  12. Or SAW 6: Give Us More of Your Money

  13. I’m really looking forward to Extract… as a giant fan of Office Space, and Micheal Bluth(Jason Bateman), i’m looking forward to it!

  14. Um, is that Ben Affleck poster legit? Cause it looks like a photoshop. A bad photoshop.

  15. People who rip on the Saw franchise always crack me up,because they obviously haven’t seen them all(yes I’m talking to you ogb) to label them as just “torture porn”.

    If you were to pay attention to all of the movies,you would know that there is always a lesson that is being taught.Albeit,a sick and twisted one,but a lesson nonetheless.

    The other thing I really appreciate about these movies,is how all of the movies directly or indirectly intersect each other,giving then an actual lore,instead of just one kill fest after another.

    There has actually been a lot of thought that has gone into making these movies connect and intertwine each other,so to say that they are stupid is just a stupid comment to make,imo.If you don’t like the material that’s presented,I respect that,because these just might not be your type of movies,but to say these are “stupid”,or “pathetic”,or any other adjective to describe people’s dislike for these movie,well that’s just silly to me.

  16. I’ve said it before–can’t wait to see Gerard Butler in Gamer…I didn’t know ‘Law Abiding Citizen’ was coming out already! That sounds good, hope it is. Damn! Three Gerard Butler flix in one year!! Yah!

    Leave poor Saw alone…ppl need their gore fix!

  17. I don’t think I need any lessons taught to me by horror movies. :-P

  18. @ Ken J

    I agree,but you are obviously missing the point.They aren’t teaching YOU a lesson,Jigsaw is teaching the other characters one.

  19. I know, but why do we care if it’s not teaching the viewers anything? So ultimately the only thing you actually get out of them is the gore if you’re not getting any of the lessons… So if you look at the net result instead of the gross, calling it torture porn (although never the way I worded it) isn’t exactly inaccurate…

  20. Look,it’s a friggin’ movie,not a college course.If you don’t like the twists that come at the end of each movie,then oh well,just move on.I care because I want to be entertained,plain and simple.I like the intertwining of characters and plot points.If you can’t see that,then these obviously just aren’t your type of movies.

    Even though there is a very good amount of blood,guts,and gore,there is so much more to these movies.

  21. I thought the first three Saw films were pretty good as a horror trilogy. After watching the fourth film I had enough,,, The story lost its steam when Jiggy started to control events from beyond the grave.

    I have to admit the poster with the nurse and the blood filled syringes looks pretty intense….

  22. Hehe, no need to get defensive Longshanks, I like plenty of stupid movies just because they’re entertaining in their own stupid way. You don’t have to try to make them out to be more than they are to justify why you like them…

  23. I AM getting defensive,but not upset.

    Yes,I do like this franchise,and I just wanted to illustrate that they ARE more than what most people think they are.Also,I just get a little ticked when people say how “stupid” the series is when they’ve only seen the first 2 or 3 movies.How do you know how stupid it is if you haven’t seen them all?

    If you just don’t like them,that’s fine,but not liking something and just calling them stupid without seeing them all is just silly thinking to me.

    I’m not into the subject matter of Harry Potter,but I wouldn’t say that it’s stupid,because I haven’t seen any of them.That would be ignorant thinking on my part.So I just can’t get behind anyone who calls these movies “stupid”,that haven’t seen all of them.I can except it if someone says,”I saw the first three movies,and I just didn’t like them”(or look at 790′s comment above),but I just read too many comment that are like,”the first movie was good,the second movie sucked,so I stopped watching them.They are making Saw 6?Man This franchise is stupid”.*stupid even though they have only seen half of the films*

    I’m not trying to justify liking these movies,I’m just flat out telling you why I like them.And (‘m not trying to make them out to be more than what they are,I think I’m telling you EXACTLY what they are,and people who’ve seen them all and actually like them would probably say the same thing.

  24. Longshanks–I agree with you 100% BUT at least these nay sayers have at least seen some of the films. Try having an intelligent discussion with the ppl who hate Twilight and everything connected with it who haven’t even picked up the book or seen the movie! It’s ridiculous!

    I don’t mind a good rousing heated discussion with someone who’s at least familiar with the subject they are most vehemently arguing against.

  25. By the way, I think she/he is wearing a skin mask in the Saw VI poster.

  26. Ya know, these SAW films get a lot of heat from people who call them torture-porn, stupid, mindless violence, etc… I have to disagree. Not all the films work, and there are flaws, but overall the franchise suffers more from being over-plotted, ponderous and filled with exposition, back-story. They’re not exactly dumb films with murder for murders sake.
    I think people in general hate what they perceive SAW to represent, rather than how the franchise fails on the merits of cinema storytelling.
    I’d rather watch something like SAW or HOSTEL, than some dumb American comedy with Adam Sandler trying to fool us into thinking everything’s OK.

  27. i haven’t seen saw…and don’t plan on seeing it.
