First the release for “Piranha 3DD” got pushed from fall 2011 to some undisclosed time in 2012. This caused many among us to speculate on the ultimate fate of the film. Then it was announced that John Gulager’s (“Feast”) sequel to Alexandre Aja’s surprise 2010 hit would indeed be released theatrically, but still no specific date was given. But finally, after what feels like forever, word has come down that “Piranha 3DD” will be unleashed on the world June 1, 2012.
This time around the prehistoric piranha find their way into a water park. And not just any water park, a water park staffed by strippers and David Hasselhoff. Much splatter, schlock, and carnage will ensue.
The June 1 slot pits “Piranha 3DD” against “Snow White and the Huntsman”, starring Chris Hemsworth and Kristen Stewart, and is the week before Ridley Scott’s “Prometheus” drops. With this competition, who knows how the movie will perform. Odds are it won’t live up to the first one, financially or critically (although the latest (below) looks rather incredible), but I don’t give a damn. I want to see “Piranha 3DD”, and I’m damned excited to get to see it on the big screen. And while I normally can’t stand 3D, I firmly believe that this kind of blood-soaked, gratuitously nude horror is the absolute best use of that technology.
“Piranha 3DD’ stars Danielle Panabaker, Katrina Bowden, Christopher Lloyd, Ving Rhames (I’m curious to see how he survived the first film), Gary Busey, Chris Zylka, Chelan Simmons, David Koechne, Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Paul Scheer, Cody Kennedy, Elise Neal, and Sam Jones III.
