Even though several new posters and a brand new trailer have surfaced for the John Gulager - directed film, a release date has yet to be determined. As a result, speculations are once again raging and the one time prominent label that spawned the cash cow franchises Scream, Scary Movie and Spy Kids, is no longer the hottest studio in town.
In 2011, Dimension released only three movies, all of them huge box-office disappointments. But In 2012, the company doesn't have a single film scheduled to come out in theaters. But we just learned from an article in the L.A. Times, things about to change. According to the Times, Dimension plans on releasing Piranha 3DD simultaneously in theaters and via video-on-demand at a to-be-determined date. How big of a theatrical release the film receives also remains to be seen.
All and all this whole scenario is rather intriguing. On one hand you get to view the film in the comfort of your own home among your friends or family at one set price, but in the other hand you lose the whole theater atmosphere as well as the 3D effect. Is this a good strategy for the Weinstein Bros. or is this their way of playing it safe? Which way will you view the film, at home or in the theater?
