Piranha 3DD Looks Awesome

The man, the myth, the legend.

I don’t think the brain trust behind the Piranha 3D franchise has been given proper praise for their savvy marketing campaigns, clever casting choices and shrewd exploitation of the 3D craze. Well, I’m here to remedy this error.

At a time when most movie posters suck donkey dong, the Piranha flicks give us these:

THIS is the script?

And then there’s the full-length trailer for Piranha 3DD. Beaucoup shots of T&A, Gary Busey biting the head off a baby piranha, a piranha crawling out of a vagina to maul a penis and the Hoff quoting Charles Darwin makes this the greatest trailer I’ve seen in months.

I bow to team Piranha for embracing their genre with aplomb and squeezing every ounce of fun out of the subject matter. I’d watch Piranha 3DD a hundred times if it meant not having to sit through another War Horse or Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.
