For those who are interested, here is what Tanedra Howard and director James Gunn are up against, with regard to the Saw saga:

I: $18.3/$55.2 (2,467 theaters max.)
II: $31.8/$87 (2,949)
III: $33.6/$80.2 (3,167)
IV: $31.8/$63.3 (3,183)
V: $30.1/$56.6 (3,084)

The first number represents the first-weekend domestic gross in millions; the second is its domestic grand total, followed by the maximum number of theaters it appeared in.

Needless to say, the Saw franchise appears to be in decline. Despite opening with $30.1 million, the 5th movie finished with barely as much as the first.

Which is to say this: If they fail to come up with a more intriguing, far more twisted and not-so-obvious storyline than its 2 predecessors (IV and V, which both showed a sharp decline), the 6th movie will be the first to gross less than the 1st, and would probably make it or the 7th movie the last of the saga, or at least, force future sequels to go straight to video.

I hope James Gunn has a few aces up his sleeve to save this franchise from being prematurely cut. Freddy Krueger has 8 movies, Jason Voorhees has a whopping 11 since 1980 (they both share Freddy Vs. Jason); the Aliens have 6 since 1979 and the Predator has 4 (both share 2; Alien Vs. Predator and its sequel Requiem)
