Piranha 3-D looks like a lot of fun. It looks like blood, guts, boobies and action. And those attributes make Piranha 3-D exactly the kind of campy stage to showcase a gimmicky, has-been, still-not-impressive movie technique that is making a comeback, and hopefully a quick death, with 2010’s landing in all things 1980s. Yeah, I hate 3-D. So does Roger Ebert. And – gasp! – I even hate 3-D in Avatar. Suck on that, James Cameron. 3-D belongs in animated movies and nonsensical, over-the-top drive-in-theater movies like Piranha 3-D.
Piranha 3-D hits theaters on August 27, 2010 and stars Elisabeth Shue, Adam Scott, Ving Rhames, Richard Dreyfuss, Christopher Lloyd, Jerry O’ Connell, Dina Meyer, Jessica Szohr and Riley Steele. It’s also helmed by The Hills Have Eyes director, Alexandre Aja.
What do you think of the trailer? Yay or poop?
