The promotional image - debuted by FearNet - depicts slasher icon Leatherface as director John Luessenhop prepares to return him to screens for the first time in six years.
The movie picks up where Tobe Hooper's 1974 original left off, following a young woman named Heather who inherits a mansion from a grandmother she never knew she had, only to discover that the chainsaw-wielding Leatherface still resides there.
Texas Chainsaw 3D will ignore the events of Marcus Nispel's 2003 remake and its prequel Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning in favour of a return to the series' roots.
Alexandra Daddario will head up the cast in the role of Heather, with support from Tania Raymonde and Scott Eastwood. Original actors Gunnar Hansen, Marilyn Burns and Bill Moseley will make cameo appearances.
Texas Chainsaw 3D is released in the UK on January 4, 2013.
