New Trailer for Piranha 3DD Swims Online
03.01.12 by Ryan
Last October, Dimension released the teaser trailer for Piranha 3DD, which made good promotional sense since the movie was scheduled to open in November. However, the studio then moved the sequel's release from November to an unspecified 2012 date. Curiously, Dimension has now released the first full-length trailer for the movie, even though it still lacks a scheduled release (though it will appear on DVD in March in the UK).
Like the teaser, Piranha 3DD is filled with gore and bikini-clad bodies as the sequel takes the body count from a lakeside resort town to a waterpark called the Big Wet. More of David Hasselhoff's cameo is featured, as well as footage of Gary Busey's appearance. Last November, Busey revealed that he played a "farmer" who has piranhas rain down on him after "a cow explodes because of its farting ability." While Busey's comments seemed ridiculous at the time, the eccentric actor does appear dressed like a farmer in the trailer.
As director John Gulager (Feast) explained in January, Piranha 3DD's Thanksgiving release date was always "overly optimistic" and revealed that he expects a spring release to coincide with the movie's "Spring Break vibe." While Gulager makes a sound argument for a spring release, we're starting to wonder as the movie continues to languish without a release date.
Piranha 3DD was written by Gulager's Feast writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, as well as Feast producer Joel Soisson. The movie co-stars Danielle Panabaker (Friday the 13th, The Crazies), Matt Bush (Adventureland), Chris Zylka (The Amazing Spider-Man), David Koechner (Anchorman), Meagan Tandy (Unstoppable), and Clu Gulager (Feast). Christopher Lloyd and Ving Rhames also return.
