‘Piranha 3Dd’ One Fin Closer to Going Straight to DVD

30 December 2011 12:37 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The 3D reboot of Piranha from 2010 was one of my favorite movies of that year. And I don’t usually much like horror stuff, especially winky, self-aware horror parody: that means they did something very right. So word of a followup should have been great news. But as soon as Piranha 3Dd was announced as re-teaming the creative team behind the Project Greenlight winning horror film Feast rather than re-teaming the creative team that already worked so well together on a Piranha movie, director Alexandre Aja and writers Pete Goldfinger & Josh Stolberg, I was dubious. The next hint that this movie wasn’t going to turn out so great came in October, when Piranha 3Dd was scrapped from having its planned November 2011 release and was instead marked with the ominous “sometime in 2012” release date instead. It was starting to look like the writing was on the wall, that Dimension didn’t have much faith in the film »

Exclusive: Director John Gulager Talks Piranha 3Dd and More!

9 June 2011 10:14 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Just back from shooting Piranha 3Dd in Wilmington, North Carolina (the flick opens nationwide via Dimension this coming November 23), director John Gulager, who’s currently knee-deep in post-production, took some time out of his busy schedule to chat with us regarding the shoot as well what fans can expect of his sequel to the 2010 Alexandre Aja-helmed Piranha 3D. Read on!

Following twenty-five days of wet and wild production with director of photography Alexandre Lehmann, the filmmaker (who directed from a script by long-time collaborators Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton) said of his first foray into the world of 3D, “It does take longer to shoot (in that format), although the company still wants you to shoot it in the same amount of time (you would film a traditional movie), and there’s no running off and just getting shots because there is a train (of equipment) which follows you around. »

Piranha 3Dd Begins Production!

26 April 2011 12:42 PM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

I really dug what Aja did with the remake – if you want to call it that – of Piranha with Piranha 3D (Theatrical Review).  I had tons of fun and so did the few people who were in the theatre with me.  If you were to tell me that they were going to make a sequel that day I saw it, I would of figured it would be direct-to-video because of the attendance.  Alas, Dimension is going with the flow and planning on a theatrical sequel to whet the appetite of the hungry and bloodthirsty audience that loved Aja’s film.  Read beyond the break for the meaty details.

From the Press Release:

New York, NY, April 25, 2011 – After earning rave reviews from top critics and wild cheers from audiences around the country, Dimension Films has started production on the sequel to Piranha 3D.

Piranha 3D (2010)

22 February 2011 11:13 AM, PST | Planet Fury | See recent Planet Fury news »

Directed by: Alexandre Aja

Written by: Josh Stolberg & Pete Goldfinger

Cast: Elisabeth Shue, Steven R. McQueen, Jessica Szohr, Adam Scott, Jerry O'Connell, Kelly Brook

Leave it to a Frenchman to bring back the fun back to the exploitation film, a much-loved indigenous American art form that's grown somewhat antiseptic in recent years. But "bring back the fun" is exactly what director Alexandre Aja has done with Piranha 3D, his recent remake of Joe Dante's classic 1978 Jaws parody.

Dante's flick is perhaps the best B movie ever made. It has a little bit of everything — humor, suspense, cunning, gore. Hell, it even had a decent story. Produced by Roger Corman and written by smartypants indie filmmaker John Sayles, the original Piranha was part campy thrill ride, part ecological warning and part anti-war screed. With his reboot, Aja decided to pare that equation down and focus on one part: campy thrill ride, »

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Piranha’ Gives Viewers Skin, Gore They Should Expect

13 January 2011 6:53 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “Piranha” is ludicrous, offensive, disgusting, gratuitous, and stupid — just the way that it should be. Can you imagine the complete failure it would have been to try and take the concept of killer fish seriously? Director Alexandre Aja (“High Tension”) wisely went the other way and made a movie that falls completely flat in terms of character, dialogue, and logic but works where it needs to: T, A, and gore.

Blu-Ray Rating: 3.5/5.0

Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg haven’t just remade the B-movie classic “Piranha” but they’ve tried to make a horror film more like the enjoyable trash that came out during the era of the initial film’s release. There was a time when horror movies weren’t obsessed with storytelling hooks or moral messages. In the ’80s, they used to be about blood and skin. Let’s just say that legendary drive-in movie lover Joe Bob Briggs would totally dig “Piranha. »
