Two international posters for Piranha 3DD

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water

Piranha 3DDhas released a new pair of posters promoting the horror sequel’s schlocky wares, and they’ve got us ruing afresh that the film has been unable to negotiate a UK release.

Whilst director John Gulager has reassured US audiences that the film will reach Stateside cinemas, the UK plan is for the film to be released direct to DVD.

Now while the original was no masterpiece, it was a dopily enjoyable slice of Friday night fun. Throw in the involvement of Gary Busey and David Hasselhoff, and the sequel sounds too ridiculous to miss!

The new posters trade heavily on that trashy reputation, although surprisingly, the amount of boobage on display is remarkably restrained. The fish are the stars of the show here, and once again, they look suitably fiendish.

We particularly like the Jaws-aping effort featuring a blissfully unaware swimmer. Plus, that tagline is also a bit of a winner: “Double the action. Double the terror. Double the Ds.” They don’t write ’em like that any more…

UK audiences can catch the film when it's released on DVD on 19 March 2012.

Would you have watched Piranha 3DD in the cinema? Will you seek it out on DVD? Tell us, below.

      Oddly enough, I would have watched it in the cinema, but probably won't go anywhere near it on dvd. To me it says something about the studio having no faith in it.

      I would definitely see this in the cinema, unfortunately, i live in England so will have to be a DVD night. I was amazingly surprised by the first one despite hating the originals so i hope this one is good too.

      I really like the second poster, not fussed about seeing the film, didn't enjoy the first. @dalidab, cant you watch all three? I was (un)lucky enough to see 'The Wicker Tree' a while ago. It was terrible, i was very dissapointed. Can't wait for the 'The Devils' release, shame it's not the full uncut version that Russel intended us to see though.

      I thought the first was a great turn-on/switch-off movie that had it's tongue firmly planted in it's B-movie cheek. I will definitely be watching this, be it in the cinema or on DVD...What can I say? I have no shame...
