For Your Oscar Consideration: Piranha 3D - With Video, Too!
The Weinstein Company's horror remake Piranha 3D, directed by Alexandre Aja, finally lands in theaters this weekend. As a last bit of crazy promotion for the movie, TWC has whipped up a video called "Piranha 3D: For Your Consideration" that has been unveiled on Funny or Die. Basically they said, well, Piranha 3D is leading all of the other main categories, so why not offer it up for things like Best Penis Being Gobbled and Spit Out in 3D. So this solidifies "why" Piranha 3D is the front-runner and should be considered as a contender with Inception and others. Yea, it's all a big joke (or so I hope?), but it's still pretty funny. Enjoy!
Watch the "For Your Consideration" video for Piranha 3D's Oscar campaign:
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.
