Saw 3D (released on home media as Saw: The Final Chapter) is a 2010 3D horror film directed by Kevin Greutert, written by Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, and starring Tobin Bell, Costas Mandylor, Betsy Russell, Sean Patrick Flanery, and Cary Elwes. It is the seventh and final installment of the Saw film series, and the only film in the series to be in 3D. The film focuses on a man who claims to be a Jigsaw survivor and writes a book detailing his experience, becoming a local celebrity. He soon finds himself part of a real Jigsaw game where he must ultimately save his wife. Meanwhile, Jill Tuck explains to an internal affairs officer that rogue Detective Hoffman is the man responsible for the recent Jigsaw games; Tuck is put under police protected custody while officers search for Hoffman.

An eighth installment was planned, but the decrease in the box office performance for Saw VI compared to previous installments led to Saw 3D being the final planned film in the series, and the plot concept for Saw VIII being incorporated into Saw 3D. Saw V director David Hackl was to direct the film, but two weeks before filming Lionsgate announced that Greutert, who directed the sixth film, would direct. Principal photography took place in Toronto, Ontario from February to April 2010 and was shot with the SI-3D digital camera system, as opposed to shooting with traditional cameras and later transferring to 3D in post-production.

Saw 3D was originally scheduled to be released on October 22, 2010, but was pushed back a week to October 29, 2010, in the United States and Canada; it was released a day earlier in the United Kingdom and Australia. The film was initially rated NC-17 (no children 17 and under admitted) by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) and had to be edited and re-submitted six times to finally receive an R rating. In Australia, the film received an R18+ rating despite all the previous installments having an MA15+ for their theatrical release. Saw 3D opened at number one making over $22.5 million. It received largely negative reviews from critics.

Dwayne Johnson, a.k.a. The Rock, is back to his old ass-kicking ways in the new action thriller Faster, an old school revenge flick of the hard-boiled 1970s variety. Johnson plays a man simply called Driver, a former getaway driver who has just been released after doing 10 hard years in prison. Driver has one need, one simple but deadly motivation: to find the sons of bitches whose treachery landed him behind bars and killed his brother.

Ruthlessly and methodically tracking down the mysterious baddies who wronged him (thanks to info provided to him by Mike Epps as an underworld figure), Driver is shooting his enemies dead within hours of being released. This obviously brings him to the attention of the police (Billy Bob Thornton and Carla Gugino).

Thornton's "Cop" is a heroin addict with a badge who is desperate to patch things up with his estranged wife (Moon Bloodgood) and their young son. But his pursuit of Driver stands to risk all of that. Cop isn't the only one hunting Driver. So is Killer (Oliver Jackson-Cohen), a dapper hired gun with a hot girlfriend (Maggie Grace) and an incessant need for the next thrill. All of their paths converge the closer Driver gets to finding his man

The suspect, whose wife and children have left him and disappeared, seems to know exactly what the interrogation will entail. Even as H ratchets up the pressure, using torture over Brody's objection, the suspect doesn't crack. Should H do the unthinkable, and will Brody acquiesce? Is any Constitutional principle worth possible loss of life?
