Piranha 3D

Anyone else see the trailer for this movie?


Looks to me like complete cornball nonsense.

How this movie got made and released into theaters (instead of a SyFy Frydai Nyght Movye) is beyond me.
Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.

Re: Piranha 3D

Are you kidding me!?! That looks outstanding!

With everything Stallone is doing and now this, it's like the 80's of my childhood are back in full swing!

Seeing Piranha 3D is gonna be like being a 12 year old sneaking into a theater to see boobs and gore all over again!

The thing is, there are a lot of talented people involved in making this movie. They're fully aware of the kitsch value of what they're doing, with a huge .

I'm looking forward to it!

...honestly? And just what are you expecting from Piranha 3d? Either you're in on the gag or you just skip it.

And I didn't watch the trailer. Why would I?! Of course I'm going to see this movie, I'm sold, I don't want to see a frame until I'm in the theater.

There might be an extremely popular British actress/model who becomes a GBOW as a result of this, so....

Re: Piranha 3D

I saw this trailer Thursday night... got an eyeroll from me. It looks like total horseshit... in 3D. Of course the public has only itself to blame. People pay to see crap and Hollywood keeps churning it out.

The original is a complete cheeseball so it's only natural the sequel/remake be the same.

3D eh? Cameron should direct the sequel.

Meh, me when they remake HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP. Fish rape in 3D would totally rule!
