Alexandre Aja’s Piranha 3D Takes a Bite out of a Theatrical Trailer

The teaser trailer for Alexandre Aja’s “Piranha 3D” gave you a taste of what the movie has in store (it tastes like blood, in case you were wondering), so here’s the full theatrical trailer (via Yahoo) to deliver the rest. I still have no idea who is our hero or if there even is one, but one thing’s for sure: those little fishes are gonna be doing plenty of munching in August.

From director Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes) comes the new action thriller PIRANHA. 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 and Christopher Lloyd.

Starring Elisabeth Shue, Eli Roth, Dina Meyer, Christopher Lloyd, Ving Rhames, Jerry O’Connell, Jessica Szohr, Steven R. McQueen, Adam Scott, Richard Dreyfuss, Kelly Brook, Cody Longo, Brooklynn Proulx, and directed by Alexandre Aja.

The fishes come for snacks August 27, 2010.
