Fuck James Cameron. Horror director Alexandre Aja truly knows what 3-D should be used for: boobs and blood. The man behind Dimension Films’ eagerly anticipated creature-feature Piranha 3-D wants moviegoers to know that his film is a technically updated throwback to to the sensationalistic 3-D films many of us grew up with.
He tells MTV:
The biggest thing for the fans is going to be the big spring-break wet T-shirt contest, where we have thousands of spring-break groups on the water and the party has its climax when the piranhas come and start attacking everyone. It’s almost 25 minutes of a huge massacre, and it’s really insane.
I think we broke all the records in the manner of blood used. I don’t remember the exact number, but we passed ‘Kill Bill.
I understand why James Cameron in Avatar didn’t want to make the 3-D gimmicky, and he was right. But we are making a piranha-attacking-spring-break movie, so we are going to go for the huge on-the-screen effects and fish attacking the audience.
Piranha 3-D stars Elisabeth Shue, Ving Rhames, Jerry O’Connell, Eli Roth, Christopher Lloyd, Richard Dreyfuss, Dina Meyer, porn star Riley Steele, and the gorgeous Kelly Brook. The film arrives in theaters on August 27.
