Check This Out: Official Poster for Alexandre Aja's Piranha 3D
Dimension Films / The Weinstein Company has unveiled the first official poster on Twitter (via STYD) for Piranha 3D, that wild and crazy 3D horror movie about killer piranhas that hits theaters in August. We've already seen a couple of trailers (watch the most recent here) for Piranha 3D, so we know what to expect. I can already tell you I'm not really a fan of this poster, but that's because it's obnoxiously promoting 3D and that may be because that's all this has going for it. It looks fun and wacky and its got Christopher Lloyd and Richard Dreyfuss (and Elisabeth Shue!) but it's still all about watching the horror in 3D. Take a look below.
A tremor under the surface of Lake Victoria in Arizona unleashes scores of prehistoric piranhas, an event which rallies the local sheriff Julie Forester (Elisabeth Shue), who risks everything to save her townsfolk.
Piranha 3D is directed by French horror filmmaker Alexandre Aja, of High Tension, The Hills Have Eyes (the remake) and Mirrors previously. The film's screenplay was co-written by Alexandre Aja, Josh Stolberg (Good Luck Chuck, Sorority Row), Pete Goldfinger (Sorority Row), and Grégory Levasseur (High Tension, P2, Mirrors). The Weinstein Company will be bringing Piranha 3D to theaters starting on August 20th.
