November 2, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): If you are big fan of the Gore horror genre then the new ‘Saw 3D’ is just the right movie for you. With all the major productions releasing the 3D versions along with the normal 2D, it was about time that Saw franchisee followed suit.  The ‘Saw 3D’ is the 7th and most probably the final contribution to the gore flick franchisee that completely changed the way people perceived this genre.

This weekend ‘Saw 3D’simply imprisoned the audience in its house of horrors and grossed a whopping $24.2 million worldwide according to the studio estimates.  The last feature film of ‘Saw’ series was released a year back and it had a dismal run at the box office, amassing a meager  $14.1 million. However, before you get carried away, here are some more facts; it seems that ‘Saw 3D’s ‘phenomenal success is the fifth best debut of the series so far. So when you consider that there were only six more movies before it, the $24.2 million opening weekend does not sound too impressive. But the best part is that ‘Saw 3D’might be able to hold on to its current run and make more money than all the six movies that came before it.

Although the ‘Saw’ series has lost some of its crowd-pulling capabilities over the years Lionsgate’s aggressive marketing has managed to draw the audience to the theaters.  The producers also notified that with a budget of less than $20 million, this movie is slated to make a huge profit.
