Film trailer: 'Piranha 3D'
Thursday 13 May 2010
"The Jaws" of summer 2010, the title
Piranha 3D says it all, like
Snakes on a Plane. This horror thriller is loosely based on Joe Dante's 1976 movie. Directed by Alexandre Aja (
The Hills Have Eyes).
The story takes place at Lake Victoria where an underwater earthquake has unleashed an army of prehistoric man-eating piranhas on the unsuspecting tourist town where thousands are enjoying vacation and spring break. Suddenly they're being devoured while swimming.
The sheriff, played by Elisabeth Shue ( Leaving Las Vegas, Adventure), must protect the town and destroy the man-eating creatures. The 3D effects can only make the monster fishes' razor-tooth jaws all the more terrifying.
The cast also includes Ving Rhames ( Pulp Fiction), Richard Dreyfuss, and Christopher Lloyd.
The film releases in the US on August 27 and the UK on August 20.
