WATCH: trailer for Chris Rock’s Saw reboot called Spiral: From the Book of Saw is here…

Well, this did not take long at all, did it?

The trailer for Chris Rock’s Saw reboot – confusing titled Spiral: From the Book of Saw – is here and it looks pretty decent, actually.

While writing this, my wife just asked how do you reboot something that already has about ten movies and, looking at this, they are gong to make a movie closer to the original Saw.

That is, a pretty decent thriller before it became a gory saga of movies that increasingly became more and more dull (in my opinion, of course). This looks like a proper return to that school of thought with Rock’s detective caught in a web of police murders in, it seems, more and more gruesome fashions.

But… It seems to me that the inclusion of the ‘Book of Saw’ means that this isn’t the all-out reboot we expected and is more of a ‘from the world of’ sort of deal.

Anyway, the movie also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Marisol Nichols, and Max Minghella, was directed by Darren Lynn Bousman and hits cinemas on May 15th.

It certainly has our attention…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
