Plus, this new version of Piranha is completely different than the original (check out our own Alison Nastasi's review of that film). I can get behind a re-imagining more than I can a straight up remake for some reason. Add in a surprisingly robust cast including Elizabeth Shue, Ving Rhames, Christopher Lloyd, Kelly Brook, porn star Riley Steele and Jaws veteran Richard Dreyfuss and you wind up with a film that looks to be more than your standard remake cash-grab.
So, I'm excited. And when I see ads like this new international television spot (thanks to Uncle Creepy and the Dread Central crew for sharing), I become more convinced that my excitement is well founded. This new clip is twice as long as your standard US version and highlights everything I want to see in a Piranha flick -- namely people getting devoured in a feeding frenzy. Ving Rhames taking on hordes of piranha with an outboard boat motor looks pretty friggin' awesome too.
The film is due in theaters this Friday -- but you can jump past the break right now and check out the new clip (which is in English) just to get you a little more excited.
