Sure, the first film may have been shockingly entertaining in its gruesome and somewhat inventive use of piranha-based violence, but expectations for the sequel, Piranha 3DD, arenâ€™t all that high. However, that doesnâ€™t mean youâ€™ll be seeing it skip out on theaters.
Early this week, rumors arose via Digital Spy that the filmâ€™s distributors, Entertainment Film Distributors, planned to release the film directly to DVD and Blu-ray on March 19. However, director John Gulager has spoken to STYD and revealed that the film is still set to hit theaters come this spring.
Now, personally, Iâ€™m actually quite excited for this film. I found the first flick to be insanely entertaining, and truly solid in its depiction of violence. Culminating in one of the goriest set pieces youâ€™ll see, Piranha was something of a shocker when it hit in 2010. Far from a masterpiece, the film was just a fine bit of B-movie horror. Hereâ€™s to hoping weâ€™ll get more of that come this spring.
