Two international posters for Piranha 3DD

Piranha 3DD has 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.
