Piranha 3D gets a trailer.

Dimension is releasing this campy cheese-fest on August 27th, and I might see it just for the nutso cast. It's beyond wonderful to see Christopher Lloyd in a seemingly sizable role again. Believe it or not, the man who was Judge Doom and Doc Brown has not been seen in theaters since My Favorite Martian, Baby Geniuses, and Man on the Moon (where he basically played himself on the set of Taxi) all back in 1999 (he did voice over work in Hey Arnold!: The Movie and Fly Me to the Moon in 2002 and 2008 respectively). Joining him for this Alexandre Aja (High Tension, The Hills Have Eyes, Mirrors) vehicle is Elizabeth Shue, Ving Rhames, Dina Meyer, Jerry O'Connell, and one Richard Dreyfuss. Mr. Dreyfuss is also an infrequent visitor to our silver screens, so any project he chooses (like the 2006 Poseidon remake) automatically makes it a mini-event. The movie itself looks relatively stupid, and there's just no way it can possibly measure up with the astounding awesomeness that is Mega Piranha.
