Spoiler Talk: Piranha 3D

Piranha 3DThis weekend saw quite a bit of movies released, none of which seemed particularly interesting, but one did pique my interest: Piranha 3D, a reimagining of the 1978 Roger Corman feature Piranha. While the original film was an attempt to hitch a ride on the success of Jaws, this new film is instead riding the wave of the recent 3D phenomenon.

Typically, when I find out a movie is in 3D, it actually makes me NOT want to go see it, as today’s 3D is more for high-definition picture quality, whereas I grew up in a time where 3D meant a harpoon was coming right at your face and that’s the 3D I want. Piranha 3D promised me this ‘gotcha’ 3D.

As far as the film’s subject matter, I must admit I’ve been intrigued by those South America fish with a penchant for flesh ever since thrash metal giants Exodus sang about piranha on their 1985 debut album. Of course, I was probably compelled by the song’s reference to them as “Loki’s children,” trapped in the depths of Hell brought up to one day waste mankind. But I was introduced to these deadly creatures nevertheless and the fascination began.

It helped a lot that Piranha 3D, directed by Alexandre Aja (The Hill Have Eyes remake), boasts a cast of Richard Dreyfess, Elisabeth Shue, and Christopher Lloyd, right there enough to get to me go see the film.

If you’ve seen Piranha 3D, then it’s time for some SPOILER TALK.

Piranha 3D

In what is growing to be a certain cult classic one day, Piranha 3D is the actual title of a movie that is on its way to us right this very moment.

The Dimension Films production is directed by Alexandre Aja, who is no newcomer to the horror genre having helmed the remake of The Hills Have Eyes and also Mirrors. Even though the production is a 100% intentional B-movie production, it has a major cast, which makes the film feel like it could be all the more fun. The cast includes Elisabeth Shue, Richard Dreyfuss, Eli Roth, Jerry O’Connell, Kelly Brook, Adam Scott, Christopher Lloyd, and Ving Rhames.

Some delays have stalled the project a couple of times, but now Piranha 3D has an official release date and a plot synopsis that you have to read. The film will be released nationwide on August 27, 2010.
