Source: Shout Factory
December 31, 2009

Just in time for the April 16 release of Piranha 3D, Shout Factory is prepping a Blu-Ray edition of Joe Dante's original Piranha.

Expect to see it street on April 6. The title will arrive under Shout's "Roger Corman's Cult Classics" banner. We're still awaiting word on special features.

Written by John Sayles and released in '78, the film finds piranha attacking a summer resort. Black Sunday's Barbara Steele co-stars.

i'm sure we'll STILL be waiting in April for the P3D trailer to be shown. WTF is with them showing the trailer with like 10 prints of AVATAR?!!!

Man, I went to see Avatar and they never the trailer to Piranha, I was upset I really want to check out the trailer. I'll still go this movie when comes out, Alex Aja has made some kick ass movies, this one won't be a disppointment.

So the trailer was shown infront of some viewings of Avatar and not others? When i went to see Avatar, i was excited to the the Piranha 3D trailer and of course it wasn't shown.

I'm hoping it gets a DVD release as well, because I dont WANT to see Piranha in hd on a blu ray player! Sure we all went to see **** now in super high def, but alot of it was made with that in mind. Wathcing piranha in blu ray will ruin it I'm assuming.

My theater had the trailer. It was over the top, silly, and had some terrible cgi. Kind of looked like a bigger budget R-rated sci fi channel movie.
