Anchor Bay Acquires ‘Bait 3D,’ Will It Get 3D Release?

Anchor Bay Films has snapped up North American distribution rights to Australian horror-actioner Bait 3D, although release plans weren’t mentioned. I wonder if they’re following Piranha 3DD with a 3-D VOD release? Either way, the originally released footage was beyond terrible and looked less impressive than Universal Studios Orlando’s now defunct “Jaws: The Ride.”

Produced by Gary Hamilton, Todd Fellman and Peter Barber, pic stars Xavier Samuel (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse), Sharni Vinson (You’re Next, Step Up 3D), Singaporean thesps Adrian Pang and Qi Yuwu, Phoebe Tonkin, Dan Wyllie and Julian McMahon (“Nip/Tuck”).

Story’s set in a sleepy beach community where shoppers at an underground supermarket are terrorized by a crazed bandit when a tsunami swallows the town. Now trapped, with rushing water threatening to entomb them, the survivors discover the tsunami has brought unwanted visitors from the depths — hungry great white sharks.

Early leaked sales trailer, images are as follows. If you had to choose, would you rather see this guy or the Halle Berry starrer Dark Tide?

    I actually thought this looked pretty decent. Not one that I totally care if it gets a wide release in 3D or I get it in 2D BD.

    I’d rather see this than dark tide.
