Hot on the heels of last week’s trailer, I can’t say this news surprises me. Fans have been wondering WHEN they’ll have the opportunity to see Piranha 3DD since it was pulled from its original release schedule, and we still don’t have a date, but it looks like you won’t have to go very far.
The LA Times is reporting that The Weinstein Co. will release Piranha 3DD simultaneously in theaters and via video-on-demand at a to-be-determined date. It’s no secret that the Weinsteins have been plagued by financial woes for the past few years so this doesn’t come as a real shock – especially in the wake of what I perceived to be an incredibly weak and forced trailer.
Does this move suggest the studio has no faith in the film? How big of a theatrical release will this receive? We’ll keep you posted, but I wouldn’t get your hopes up of seeing this in full-on 3DD unless you’re living in a major city. Then again, I never thought this sequel would be made at all so what do I know?
Having awoken from their spring break extravaganza at Lake Victoria, the swarm heads upstream where they look to make a meal out of Big Wet, a local water park where when it comes to fun, nobody does it wetter! Thought they came to get wet, get loaded and get some, the staff and patrons get more than they bargained for when they must face the fiercest, most bloodthirsty piranhas yet. Lead by the strong-willed, studious Maddy and her friends, Barry and Kyle, the trio must dive in and take on these man-eating creatures using every ounce of their being … but can they be stopped?
