Piranha 3D

(2010)

Jaws...lots and lots of jaws. From acclaimed director Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes) comes the new action thriller PIRANHA 3D, in the latest eye-popping 3D technology. A new type of terror is about to be cut loose on beautiful Lake Victoria. After a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish, an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the area’s new razor-toothed residents. But our heroine (Elisabeth Shue) is seriously outnumbered, and with only one chance to save the lake and her family from totally being devoured, she must risk everything to destroy the aquatic carnivores herself.

EXCLUSIVE: Kelly Brook Talks ‘Piranha 3D’

Kelly Brook discusses Alexandre Aja's gory fish thriller, set to hit 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray, and DVD on January 11

Alexandre Aja pulled off the near-impossible this summer. He made a remake that was better than the original. When Piranha 3D premiered in late August, it was met with critical and fan praise alike. Its ample amounts of flesh, gore, and 3D made it a late-season blast that was hard to deny. Now, all of that fun, blood, and gratuitous nudity is coming to 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray, and DVD this Tuesday, January 11th. To help usher in this must-own release, we caught up with Kelly Brook, the beautiful Brit who may have survived the spring break filming of Piranha 3D, but doesn't fare so well on screen.
