Piranha 3-D the sequel: Piranha 3-DD
 
Surprised we didn't do a 'grade/review' thread on this when it came out back in August.

I admit, I saw it for all the cheesy goodness it contained. Suffice to say I didn't go for plot, we all get in those moods and have our guilty pleasures. So, if this type creature-feature is your thing and you liked P:3-D more is coming.

Piranha 3-DD
Quote:

In the best news I’ve heard all day, Deadline reports that Dimension Films has hired a director and team of writers to make a sequel to the best movie of 2010, “Piranha 3D”, entitled “Piranha 3 DD”, which is both a fitting and wonderful name. John Gulager will take over Alexandre Aja’s director’s chair, and Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunston will tackle the script.
The goal is to have the sequel in theaters and chomping away on topless coeds by August of 2011, in an attempt to cash in on the fact that “Piranha 3D” outperformed any and all expectations (it cost $24 million to make and $20 million to market, while raking in $71 million so far).
James Cameron must be shaking his head in disgust...
Double D, nice way to have fun with the title. Especially when you follow this.

So who did see this? Do you want more of the same? Are these even related to the prior two films, meaning would a box set contain 4 films.

I did not see the movie, won't see the sequel, but I will give them a laughing thumbs up for the sequel title. :techman:

3-DD. :lol: Nice.

I saw Piranha 3D. I should probably be embarrassed to say that, but the whole movie was just so shamelessly, gleefully lowbrow that you couldn't help but enjoy it.

The severed-penis gag was an especially nice touch, and one of the few really effective uses of 3-D in the film.

Sounds like they're making the sequel in the same spirit.

To answer the OP's question: I'm pretty sure the new film is unrelated to the first two, though I haven't actually seen Piranha II: The Spawning.

I saw it. Probably one of the most ridiculously goriest movies I've seen on a while, but I enjoyed it for what it was. Feast was ok and I remember the season of project greenlight that John Gulager was on for that movie, but yeah P:3DD will probably just be more of the same. I wonder if they'll also call this The Spawning.

I actually saw the first one in the theatres, my wife begged me to go. It wasn't bad for what it was, a carbon-copy clone of every 80s man vs. nature disaster movie ever made. Lots of T&A, people doing stupid things, and lots of gore. Jerry O'C. plays a real douche-bag in the movie, and I've had a crush on Elizabeth Shue since Adventures in Babysitting. It moved along well enough, though there was really only one or two major "gore" scenes.


The underwater scene with the two naked girls under the glass boat wasn't too bad in 3D either. :techman:

Ooops, this thread just reminded me I should finish watching this movie. I started watching 2 days ago, had to stop at some point near the end and then forgot about it.

It's a crap movie, much more gore than I expected. I'm glad I didn't pay to see it at a theater and i won't pay to see a sequel either. Maybe rent it if I'm bored enough.

Aw, it was fun. The theater experience made it so much better, too. The audience reactions were great.

The experience of cinema (even the bad kind) is lost on the current generation of torrent-hoarding, entitled assholes.



And they'd all better stay off my lawn.

I guess that means they need to sign Diora Baird.

Yes. Yes they do.

:rommie: Absolutely.

Not even James Cameron was able to do a watchable movie about Piranhas, so how do you expect me to watch something like this?

With a big bag of popcorn, and a large soda?

Tara Reid joins the cast of the sequel as the script undergoes a polishing treatment.

Quote:

Meanwhile, actress Tara Reid has also joined the cast. Reid, mostly famous for her tabloid image in recent years, has been booking projects quickly this week as she's also jumped onboard "American Reunion", the fourth "American Pie" film.
With 'Piranha' she joins a cast that includes "Glee" star Mark Salling and "Camelot" actress Tamsin Egerton. John Gulager directs and shooting kicks off soon in Baton Rouge.
