The teaser trailer for Piranha 3D was attached to most prints of fellow Weinstein Co. production Youth in Revolt way back in January, and a bootleg print of said trailer made its way on to Youtube right quick. It’s been upwards of three months, but a crisp copy is now online via Trailer Addict.
Piranha 3D represents the latest from French director Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes). If you haven’t seen the trailer yet, and that wonderfully straightforward title (Flesh-eating fish! 3D!) hooked you, check out the trailer after the jump.
Here’s the official plot synopsis:
From director Alexandre Aja 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.
