New Piranha 3DD Posters Online
Something seems fishy...

21 February 2012  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Collider

While there were some worries recently that the Piranha 3D sequel, cunningly titled Piranha 3DD, might be skipping UK cinemas altogether, that fear appears (happily) unfounded. And although there’s no confirmed date for the film’s release yet, there are a couple of posters on the web.

The first, dug up by Zone Fears, finds the finned fiends swarming towards a woman, with their toothy mugs reflected in her shades. We're not quite sure how this one works, since she doesn't appear to be underwater, but we won't quibble over logic given the general tone of this franchise. The other, over at Bloody Disgusting, takes more of a Jaws approach, with the hungry hordes rising up towards a bikini-clad babe. You’ve got to hand it to them: they’ve found a theme they want to use to advertise this film, and they’re sticking to it.

Piranha 3DD features John Gulager in the directorial hot seat, wrangling a cast that includes original film survivors Ving Rhames, Paul Scheer and Christopher Lloyd as well as new cast members/fish food Katrina Bowden, Chris Zylka, Danielle Panabaker, Gary Busey, Elise Neal and Allison Mack. Oh, and David Hasselhoff, who we’re hoping meets his maker in a suitably Baywatch-spoofing fashion.

Piranha 3DD will swim in later this year.

RE: Double the D's?
L: scissorkick Really? Who do these Ds belong to exactly?Sure, it may look ugly, but the plural of D, is Ds. The fact that the tagline is borderline nonsensical is the least of their problems. Grammar twats. DD" is a reference to bra sizes in the US. Not sure if the terminology translates to the UK. Anyway, "Double D", that's what they're going for there with the title. The second poster with the sunglasses isn't necessarily spectacular, but it captures the right tone I think. Howe More

The first poster shows the piranha reflected in a woman's shades. Does that mean they're remaking James Cameron's Piranha II: Flying Killers? Will Ripley show up with a flame-thrower, fry them all and say "Fish Fingers for everyone!"? More

Actually, scissorkick, I think you'll find their grammar is sound. An apostrophe is used when the word preceding the S is not technically a word, such as in 1980's, or in this case, D's. Look it up More

RE: Grammar twats
Smerph is correct, it is an acceptible use of an apostrophe. Furthermore, since the whole tagline is capitalised, removing the apostrophe would make it look like the film contained an increased number of Nintendo consoles. Personally, I found the tagline mildly ammusing... More

Show me five text books which say you shouldn't use an apostrophe to pluralise single characters, and I'll show you five which say you should. It's grammar - it's not an exact science. More
