With Spiral: From the Book of Saw so close to releasing (finally), we’ve decided to compile all the trailers, teasers, clips and images together in one place!

As we inch closer and closer to the release date for Spiral: From the Book of Saw, Lionsgate has released more content for fans to speculate on and investigate. The film was originally supposed to release just shy of a year ago on May 15, 2020. Now the movie is finally set to release on May 14 of this year.

Starring Chris Rock, Max Minghella, Marisol Nichols and Samuel L. Jackson, Spiral: From the Book of Saw focuses on a terrifying new chapter from the book of Saw. A criminal mastermind unleashes a twisted form of justice that puts Detective Ezekiel “Zeke” Banks (Chris Branks and his rookie partner (Max Minghella) in charge of a grisly investigation into murders reminiscent of the city’s dark past.

As Zeke delves deeper into the mystery, he finds himself involved in the killer’s game and operating in his police veteran father’s (Samuel L. Jackson) shadow.

Last February, Lionsgate released the official first teaser trailer for the movie that introduced us to the characters, including the fact that Det. William Schenk (Minghella) is married with a new baby. But while the teaser starts off lighthearted, it quickly turns dark as Zeke and William arrive at the first crime scene.

Zeke narrates, claiming that “whoever did this has another motive, they’re targeting cops.” And the telltale spiral symbol (which you’ll recognize from Billy the Puppet’s cheeks) is painted on a nearby car door. The teaser also gives us a glimpse of Jackson’s character and even what appears to be Billy himself, or at least another puppet of some kind.

The very end of the teaser shows someone in a traditional Saw trap, but it’s too dark (and they’re wearing a terrifying mask thing) to tell who just yet.
