The official website has been fully launched for Alex Aja’s Piranha 3D that features a telling new image, along with iPhone apps and online games. In addition, Hitfix is reporting that Comic Con rejected the footage that was to be shown to 10,000 fans, because of this the Weinstein Company opted to pull out of the show. “My understanding is that thee footage wasn’t all ages appropriate,” David Glanzer, Comic-Con’s Director of Marketing and Public Relations told HitFix. “We don’t check ID to get into those meeting rooms, so we don’t want something inappropriate.” Glanzer says the organization asks to see all the material previewed to audiences, but doesn’t actually “ban” anything. They just have to make sure it’s PG-friendly. Additionally, Glanzer says the film could have proceeded with a panel without any footage, but decided against it.
