Now here is the sort of news that makes me happy, news that is the complete opposite of some rumours which got me all pissed off and a little angry. If you remember a week or so ago, we reported that rumours had been flying around that John Gulagar’s Piranha 3DD would be heading straight to DVD here in the UK. You will also remember my anger at the fact that the 3D film would lose all it was intended for since the majority of homes do not have a 3D TV. And finally, you will also remember me praying that these were indeed just rumours. Well, great news, they WERE rumours and Piranha 3DD WILL be heading to UK cinemas. The only question which remains is “when, God dammit!!” Sadly, that question will not be answered anytime soon, but a representative of Entertainment Film (who will be distributing the film here in the UK) recently emailed Hey You Guys, and said this:
“We would like to assure everyone that Piranha 3DD will not be going straight to DVD in the UK as mistakenly reported. We will be giving Piranha 3DD a full theatrical release, and the film will not be released on DVD until the usual window post UK theatrical release.”
This makes me very happy indeed, for I was dreading not being able to see the lovely Katrina Bowden in 3D, let alone seeing those vicious little prehistoric bastards cause mayhem once again!
Expect much more on this as we find out, and you can see all our previous stories, which include a trailer, right here.
Piranha 3DD is directed by John Gulager (Feast trilogy) and has been written by Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton. The cast is very impressive indeed, with the gorgeous Katrina Bowden leading the way, and she will be joined by Danielle Panabaker, Chris Zylka, Gary Busey, David Hasselhoff and David Koechner. Ving Rhames and Christopher Lloyd will also be reprising their roles.
“Horror sequel in which a species of violent prehistoric piranha continue to terrify a small town. The chaos unleashed in ‘Piranha’ (2010) by a group of the omnivorous fish, set free by an earthquake that split the floor of a lake, may only have been the beginning. The tests of marine biologist Carl Goodman (Christopher Lloyd) indicate that these fish were only adolescents, suggesting their parents would be even fiercer adversaries. When the piranha make their way into the town’s plumbing system, the terror spreads. Soon swimming pools and even the town’s brand new waterpark are infested by the bloodthirsty critters. Can the town’s residents, marshalled by survivor of the first movie Deputy Fallon (Ving Rhames), find a way to combat their sharp-teethed tormentors?”
