Beyond the obvious need for an intense amount of CGI, the first official trailer for Dimension Films’ Piranha 3D looks pretty effin’ awesome (straight down to the Alien homage at the end). The footage features your first look at horror director Eli Roth and a rash of scenes with Back to the Future legend Christopher Lloyd! Read on and see for yourself — and remember, if you feel a pinch on your ass, it’s not from whomever is sitting next to you. SWIM! Piranha 3D arrives in theaters August 27.
“Jaws… lots and lots of jaws. From acclaimed director Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes) comes the new action thriller PIRANHA 3D, in the latest eye-popping 3D technology.
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. But our heroine (Elisabeth Shue) is seriously outnumbered, and with only one chance to save the lake and her family from totally being devoured, she must risk everything to destroy the aquatic carnivores herself.”
