In 2010, Saw 3D was billed as the final chapter in the Saw series, but Lionsgate decided to have another go.
Lionsgate's Jigsaw spooked the competition at the pre-Halloween box office — including George Clooney's Suburbicon, a major bomb — with a $16.3 million debut from 2,941 theaters.
Directed by Michael and Peter Spierig, Jigsaw picks up a decade after the death of the eponymous killer when police are puzzled by a rash of murders matching his signature moves. Matt Passmore, Callum Keith Rennie, Cle Bennett and Hannah Emily Anderson star in the R-rated movie, which earned a B CinemaScore. (The marketing campaign for Jigsaw included a national blood drive that collected over 125,000 pints.)
