The latest addition in the 'Saw' horror franchise was also given its official name: 'Jigsaw.'

Audiences were treated to a bumper assortment of never-before-seen footage at Lionsgate's presentation on the third day of CineEurope in Barcelona on Wednesday.

Among the upcoming titles teased with exclusive clips at the show were Working Title's hostage thriller Entebbe, starring Rosamund Pike and Daniel Bruhl; Sicario sequel Soldado, reuniting Benicio del Toro and Josh Brolin; Jerry Bruckheimer's all-star Afghan war drama Horse Soldiers; The Glass Castle, starring Brie Larson and Woody Harrelson and based on the best-selling memoir by Jeanette Wallis; and alien occupation thriller Captive State.

Meanwhile, the trailer for the Jake Gyllenhaal-starring Boston Marathon drama Stronger was given its world premiere a day before its official release, alongside screenings of trailers for action-thriller American Assassin, led by Dylan O'Brien as a CIA black-ops recruit; firefighting thriller Granite Mountain Hot Shots; and Wonder, based on R. Palacio's 2012 novel and starring Jacob Tremblay. (Wonder, set for release Nov. 17, is also being given a special screening at CineEurope.)

Previously titled Saw: Legacy, the latest installment in the Saw horror franchise, which is due out Oct. 27, was also served up via a teaser, alongside the first unveiling of its new name: Jigsaw.

Additionally, via a series of special videos, Mila Kunis gave a shout-out for her comedy The Spy Who Dumped Me, while Tom Holland, Daisy Ridley and Doug Liman talked up sci-fi pic Chaos Walking, set to start production this fall, and Seth Rogen promoted his upcoming comedy Flarsky from 50/50 director Jonathan Levine. 

Lionsgate's presentation concluded with the very first glimpses of footage from its high-profile Robin Hood reboot, which has just finished shooting and stars Taron Egerton in the lead role. The film — with a cast also including Jamie Foxx, Jamie Dornan and Ben Mendelsohn — is set to hit cinemas in March 2018.
