Saw X: Box Office Heights
The announcement for Saw XI came quickly after the release of the tenth instalment, which was one of the best-reviewed movies of the franchise. Saw X was successful at the box office and received positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, with an audience score of 89%. It was released on September 29, 2023, and made $53 million in North America and $107 million worldwide. The film only cost $13 million, so it was a profitable sequel.
Tobin Bell as John Kramer returned in Saw X because it is a prequel set between the first and second films; he died in Saw III, due to which Bell has appeared in other instalments through flashbacks.
Moreover, the last movie, Saw X, ended without a defined closure, and the Instagram post revealing the release date for the upcoming movie hints that the “game continues.” Therefore, it is likely that Saw XI will be a continuation of the last film. Currently, there are no confirmed cast members for Saw XI.
The producers for the upcoming movie Saw XI are:
Mark Burg – Producer
Oren Koules – Producer
James Wan – Executive Producer
Jason Constantine – Executive Producer
Daniel J. Heffner – Executive Producer
Ketura Kestin – Executive Producer
Stacey Testro – Executive Producer
Leigh Whannell – Executive Producer
Lionsgate Films has yet to announce a director for the sequel. Kevin Greutert, the director of Saw X, previously directed the sixth and seventh instalments in the franchise. However, whether he will return for the next Film is unknown.
Is There an Official Plot?
Unfortunately, the upcoming movie’s plot is still a secret, but the producer Oren Koules of Saw XI has given some hints. He suggests that the movie may continue the story of Saw X and focus on Cecilia, who is still alive. Tobin and Shawnee are currently in a foreign country, making it logical to continue the story there. Cecilia is the main antagonist in the prequel story of John Kramer in Saw X. She angers Jigsaw by providing him with a fake miracle cure for his cancer, and she subsequently faces his horrific psychological traps and torture. Saw X served as a prequel and a sequel, following Jigsaw’s journey to Mexico City for his brain tumor treatment.
According to Screen Rant, the post-credits scene suggests what may happen in future instalments of the Saw series. John Kramer and Mark Hoffman are shown together in the familiar Saw room, beginning a new game with Henry Kessler (Michael Beach).
Saw XI will be released this fall, close to Halloween, and nothing else could have been better for Saw fans. Stay connected for more updates.
