First Trailer for Texas Chainsaw 3D Looks Exactly How You Think It Would Look

So I’ll leave it up to you to decide if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. The scariest part about this trailer, though? I don’t know how the female lead, “Percy Jackson’s” Alexandra Daddario walks around in that wardrobe for the whole movie. I know it’s a fashionable little number and will certainly get all the boys’ motors running, especially the half-shirt, but it’s gotta be pretty damn uncomfortable having to run from Leatherface in that get-up for the entire movie, don’t you think? Anyways, check out the first trailer for Lionsgate’s “Texas Chainsaw 3D”. No, not “Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D”, just “Texas Chainsaw 3D”. (And don’t forget the 3D part. Cause, you know, this is in 3D, even though nothing from the trailer looks like there’s any point whatsoever to that, but I digress.)

Lionsgate’s TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D continues the legendary story of the homicidal Sawyer family, picking up where Tobe Hooper’s 1974 horror classic left off in Newt, Texas, where for decades people went missing without a trace. The townspeople long suspected the Sawyer family, owners of a local barbeque pit, were somehow responsible. Their suspicions were finally confirmed one hot summer day when a young woman escaped the Sawyer house following the brutal murders of her four friends. Word around the small town quickly spread, and a vigilante mob of enraged locals surrounded the Sawyer stronghold, burning it to the ground and killing every last member of the family–or so they thought. Decades later and hundreds of miles away from the original massacre, a young woman named Heather learns that she has inherited a Texas estate from a grandmother she never knew she had. After embarking on a road trip with friends to uncover her roots, she finds she is the sole owner of a lavish, isolated Victorian mansion. But her newfound wealth comes at a price as she stumbles upon a horror that awaits her in the mansion’s dank cellars…

Also starring Dan Yeager, Tremaine “Trey Songz” Neverson, Scott Eastwood, Tania Raymonde, Shaun Sipos, Keram Malicki-Sanchez, James MacDonald, Thom Barry, Paul Rae, Richard Riehle, Bill Moseley, Gunnar Hansen, and directed by John Luessenhop.

Leatherface does what Leatherface do January 4th, 2013.

    Do you know if Michael Bay is still producing this or is Platinum Dunes out of the picture for the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise?

    And, yeah, I guess the filmmakers win some points for having the semi-goth girl walking around with half her shirt missing for the whole movie but, come on, it’s clear from the trailer that this isn’t the *real* Texas Chainsaw Massacre…

    • Juggernaut

      As far as I know this one is independant of Platinum Dunes. Although the look and feel is extremely similar to the 2003 film and its 2006 prequel.
      Very uninspired. I’ll check it out when it hits Blu Ray but definately won’t be racing to the theaters for this one. Too bad.

      • BelmontHeir

        Same here. I watched the trailer earlier and was like ‘yup, will rent on Blu-ray.’ As soon as I saw the opening shots of sweaty teens in the back of a van set to a dreamy alternative song, I knew this was basically going to be aping the 2003 version. I guess it has been almost 10 years…the producers are banking on a whole new generation of teens to buy movie tickets.

        Platinum Dunes has a pretty bad track record but their ’03 Texas Chainsaw is probably the one thing they did that I actually liked.

        • Nix

          Yup, Platinum Dunes does not have their mitts on this one. Good or bad? Seeing as how the trailer looks, I’m not so sure. The Jessica Biel one had its moments. I don’t anticipate a whole lot of moments here…

          • X_p

            i think its easier for them to run in skimpy clothing, its not like shes carrying an army pak or anything…hoochies aside this looks pretty turrible. i liked the remake, the sequel not so much and this one looks like it will ruin the franchise.

          • Nix

            I wouldn’t call those pants “skimpy”. They look pretty, uh, tight.
