Because it’s now my job to sit down and watch trailers, look and posters and watch movies all day long, it’s not often that I go to the cinema and see a trailer for a film that i haven’t seen already! That changed over the weekend when I saw the trailer for Piranha 3d. Although it had the style of Deep Blu Sea or Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, it still reeled me in (see what I did there?!) and has me actually wanting to see it!

Piranha 3D is directed by Alexandre Aja and has a pretty impressive cast which includes Adam Scott, Christopher Lloyd, Ving Rhames, Dina Meyer, Richard Dreyfuss and the woman I wanted to be my girlfriend when I was 10, Elisabeth Shue! In fact, could this be the first time that Shue and Lloyd have been reunited since Back to the Future?! You heard it here first folks…. unless I’m wrong!

Synopsis: In Lake Victoria Arizona, a tremor causes the lake’s floor to open, setting free scores of prehistoric piranhas… Theyre back! Every year the population of sleepy Lake Victoria explodes from 5,000 to 50,000 for a single, wild weekend – the 4th of July, a riot of sun, drunken fun and sex-crazed mayhem. But this year, there’s something more to worry about than hangovers and complaints from local old timers. Lake Victoria sits in the crater formed by a prehistoric volcanic eruption, and when earth tremors tear open a crack in the lake floor, all hell breaks through. Piranhas – a million ravenous, razor-toothed monsters, unchanged since the dawn of time. Unstoppable killing machines acting blindly under one primeval impulse: to hunt down anything that moves and strip it to the raw, bleeding bone. In seconds.
