Piranha 3D Spawns a New Release Date

Given that Alexandre Aja’s Piranha 3D and Lionsgate’s The Last Exorcism were sitting on top of the same August release date, it just makes sense for one of them to move and avoid another conflict like last year’s The Final Destination versus Halloween II showdown, does it not?

Having learned a lesson from the box office spanking it got last year, Dimension Films has taken its brood of Piranha and is swimming upstream by one week, making the new release date for Piranha 3D an earlier August 20th.

Jaws… lots and lots of jaws. From acclaimed director Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes) comes the new action thriller PIRANHA 3D, in the latest eye-popping 3D technology. A new type of terror is about to be cut loose on beautiful Lake Victoria. 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. But our heroine (Elisabeth Shue) is seriously outnumbered, and with only one chance to save the lake and her family from totally being devoured, she must risk everything to destroy the aquatic carnivores herself.”
