And I think a safe bet would be that “Saw 5” will come out for Halloween 2008 too!

Shock! “Saw” No. 4 set for release next Halloween
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Perhaps inevitably, the record-breaking box office launch of “Saw III” has inspired the film’s distributor to order a fourth installment of the R-rated horror series.
According to final data issued Monday, the film earned $33.61 million during its first three days, a record for both Lionsgate and for the franchise, but off $700,000 from the three-day estimate the studio published Sunday.
“Saw III” received an overall grade of B from exit pollster CinemaScore. With a hefty per-screen average of $10,612, the film was best received by the under-25 crowd, which was divided pretty evenly male-female. “Saw III” stars Tobin Bell and Shawnee Smith as serial killers. Another sequel is on tap for next Halloween.
In contrast, Focus Features’ “Catch a Fire” was a huge disappointment, earning a meager $2.03 million for a 12th-place bow in the weekend’s rankings.
It wasn’t the only bomb. Newmarket Films’ controversial mockumentary “Death of a President” earned just $281,778 from 143 screens for a per-screen average of $1,835. The indie firm had trouble booking theaters because some chains wanted nothing to do with a film that depicts the assassination of President Bush.
The best performer in the limited-release world was Paramount Vantage’s “Babel,” which bowed to $389,351 on seven screens for a per-screen average of $55,621. Mexican director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s R-rated drama, which stars Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett and Gael Garcia Bernal, will add 13 markets next weekend before going wide November 10.
The Weinstein Co. did well with its documentary “Shut Up and Sing,” about the firestorm surrounding the Dixie Chicks after lead singer Natalie Maines insulted President Bush. Opening on four screens in New York and Los Angeles, the film boasted a per-screen average of $12,526 and a total of $50,103.
Elsewhere, Warner Bros.’ “The Departed” held on at No. 2 for a third weekend, with $9.85 million, taking its total to $91.1 million. The previous week’s champ, Disney’s “The Prestige,” had a little magic in its numbers, earning $9.57 million, bringing its 10-day total to $28.78 million.
Paramount Pictures’ “Flags of Our Fathers” slid in its second week in release, down one to No. 4 with $6.35 million despite a boost in its theater count; it has earned $19.92 million after 10 days.
Sony Pictures also struggled with its ninth-ranked “Marie Antoinette,” which suffered from weak word-of-mouth in its second weekend. Sofia Coppola’s period saga earned $2.85 million, taking its 10-day haul to $9.75 million.
Sony’s literary adaptation “Running With Scissors” rounded out the top 10, jumping 18 places in its second week after earning $2.53 million. The R-rated film from writer-director Ryan Murphy added 578 runs, up from eight during its first weekend. Its per-screen average of $4,320 was below expectations. According to exit pollster CinemaScore, the film generated a C+ with audiences. Audiences were drawn to the film’s subject matter primarily, with women over 25 attending the film in the greatest numbers.
