While there’s still not an official online release of the Piranha 3D trailer, the latest version to pop up across the web at least takes us past the shaky-cam bootleg that was doing the rounds last week. You can see the new, stable version embedded after the break.
The original Piranha was hardly the most subtle comedy ever mounted for the big screen but it certainly raised plenty of laughs. This new iteration seems pretty much in step with the same objective, if not exactly the same tone. Alexandre Aja has not gone for flat-out gore comedy before, and I’m curious to see how well he handles it.
One reason we may not have seen the trailer officially online yet is that it still calls the film Piranha 3D, despite a rumoured possibility that the film may only be released in 2D; a contrary reason might be that Dimension are planning to keep the marketing in 3D for the time being.
