Synopsis: After a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish, an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the area’s new razor-toothed residents.
Piranha 3D was directed by Alexandre Aja, from a script penned by Pete Goldfinger, Grégory Levasseur, Alexandre Aja and Josh Stolberg, and stars Christopher Lloyd, Kelly Brook, Richard Dreyfuss, Adam Scott, Elisabeth Shue, Jerry O’Connell, Ving Rhames, Paul Scheer, Dina Meyer and Ricardo Chavira.
Despite concerns that the film is a cheap money-making dud, the marketing campaign up to now has been solid. Combine that with a decent supporting cast and a studio who know the material and target audience, Piranha 3D could end up surprising a lot of people. From the trailer, it certainly looks like it could be a hugely enjoyable B-movie.
