Piranha 3-D Photos

Now this is starting to look good. Dread Central has a few of the first official photos from Alexandre Aja's Piranha 3-D that they nabbed while at the AFM. There aren't any shots of any piranha's yet (awww!), but there are some cool shots of bloody lake, some bikini-clad girls, and Richard frickin' Dreyfuss (fuck yes!). Hell, I'd go watch this movie right now based off of these photos, but I'm sure there is plenty more madness to come, especially once they finish all the visual effects work making those piranha's come to life! Anyway, check these out. We don't know when we'll see a trailer, but these should hold you over for the time being.

I just love that shot of the boats and everything, looks so epic! A tremor under the surface of Lake Victoria unleashes scores of prehistoric piranhas, an event which rallies the local sheriff who will risk everything to save her townsfolk. This stars Ving Rhames, Richard Dreyfuss, Christopher Lloyd, Elisabeth Shue, Dina Meyer, Paul Scheer, and Eli Roth as well. Piranha 3-D will be shooting in 3-D and aiming for an early March 19th, 2010 release date. Alexandre Aja previously directed High Tension, The Hills Have Eyes and Mirrors. The screenplay was co-written by Aja, Josh Stolberg, Pete Goldfinger, and Grégory Levasseur. Look good?

really? This is exactly the reason 3D is the worst thing ever to happen the cinema.

so is this going to be like a gay jaws? you got teens on some type of boat party like jaws.... and that crazy fisherman

Said on Nov 9, 2009


I think someone needs to read the definition of Epic again. Nothing in this looks anywhere remotely epic. Gay Jaws about sums it up. Like I said before, titties and guts.

How does titties make it gay?

Ravster on Nov 9, 2009

Wow...the above comments seriously need to get over it. These types of movies are made strictly for fun and nothing else. They're not meant to be smart or try and win an oscar, but so you can go and have fun in how ridiculous they are. If there are movies that should use 3D, it's a movie like this. Not something like Scream 4. This movie will be fun. Stop criticizing it. It is cool to see Richard Dreyfuss in his old get-up though.

Ditto 5! How does gay have anything to do with this? I think it looks like a fun time anyway.

"I don't wanna wear the damn mask"..."I'm Richard Dreyfuss, I was in JAWS" Stuff of legend:) Glad to see him and the other actors above taking roles in what looks like a tongue-in-cheek film just for fun. Shows they're not afraid to make something seemingly so ridiculous just for the hell of it.

charlie on Nov 9, 2009

Daniel Sharp on Nov 9, 2009

fapfapfap on Nov 10, 2009


Oh yeah this project looks like a blow out, trailer ASAP please!

Fisherr on Nov 11, 2009


Wow, really? Epic? This sounds like just another nature-gone-bad b-movie, maybe even made for the Sci-Fi (oh sorry, SyFy ) Channel. How the hell did they get a cast like that for a movie like this? In 3D no less... I say we take off and nuke Hollywood from orbit. It's the only way to be sure...
