The Chinese nature gone amok comedy Million Dollar Crocodile is on its way to American DVD in February with a new title that could garner Screen Media Films a phone call from Toho’s legal department: Croczilla.
Starring Reign of Assassins‘ Barbie Hsu and Hong Kong character actor Lam Suet, Million Dollar Crocodile was released in its native land this past summer. On February 12, 2013, Screen Media Films will be releasing it on US DVD under the Syfy-riffic new title Croczilla.
Fasten your seatbelts when a rampaging two-ton crocodile with an insatiable appetite is set loose in the city. With the army on the hunt, Croczilla will terrorize innocent people while a sexy model tries to recover millions from its belly. In the tradition of Jaws and Piranha, Croczilla is a wild ride of a creature feature, showing that Japan was just the appetizer!
Seems kind of a shame that a motion picture entitled Croczilla is finally coming into existence, but from reviews I’ve read, the film is said to be reasonably enjoyable, yet far more of a family-friendly screwball comedy than anything even remotely resembling the rampaging crocodile flick it’s being marketed as.
