Opening this weekend is a movie I’m actually very excited to check out: Piranha 3D. While some movies try to be something they’re not, director Alexandre Aja’s (The Hills Have Eyes) Piranha 3D knows exactly what it is and he embraces it with open arms. From what I’ve heard, the film is loaded with a lot of nudity, extreme violence, and tons of fake blood flying everywhere. Needless to say, I’m in.
Anyhow, The Weinstein Company has sent over three clips from the film and a few images, so if you’d like to get a taste of Piranha 3D, hit the jump to check everything out. Finally, if you missed the awesome “For Your Consideration” Piranha 3D ad we posted earlier today, check it out here.
Here’s the official synopsis:
From director Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes) comes the new action thriller PIRANHA 3D. Every year the population of sleepy Lake Victoria explodes from 5,000 to 50,000 for Spring Break; a riot of sun and drunken fun. But this year, there’s something more to worry about than hangovers and complaints from local old timers; a new type of terror is about to be cut loose on Lake Victoria. After a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish, an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the area’s new razor-toothed residents. The films stars Jessica Szohr (Gossip Girl), Steven R. McQueen (The Vampire Diaries), Elisabeth Shue, Jerry O’Connell, Ving Rhames, Richard Dreyfuss Adam Scott and Christopher Lloyd.
