Another Piranha Poster
It's Nattereri. Pygocentrus Nattereri.

02 August 2010  |  Written by Owen Williams  |  Source: Dread Central

The jury's out on the film itself, but we're liking the promotion. France got the Jaws parody, but the UK's Piranha 3D quad poster has a certain gentleman spy in its sights.

Those legs look familiar? Yup, it's For Your Eyes Only, but rather than Roger Moore pointing his PPK at her bikini line, this young lady is faced with the far more deadly threat of a school of dreadful spindly killer fish. Eek! 

The original poster was deemed controversially sexist in its day. This one, we're thinking, would love that sort of attention, but will barely raise a Moore-like eyebrow in our raunch-culture society. It teases sex and fish-based violence with tongue firmly in its cheek. And if you're not getting enough of that vibe from the one-sheet, here's ten minutes of decidedly NSFW boobs, blood and pointy teeth to raise your interest.

Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Mirrors) is the director, and Piranha 3D is out in the UK on August 20. James Cameron made Piranha 2, you know. Whatever happened to him?
