French Piranha 3D Poster Echoes Jaws

by at . Comments

If you remember Joe Dante's original Piranha, a low budget Jaws ripoff from the late 70's, then you'll surely recognize the lineage of the new French poster for Piranha 3-D. The new poster is a direct reference to the original Jaws poster featuring a naked swimmer at the top of the poster and an open-mouthed great white shark just below the surface.

The poster for the original Corman production of Piranha lampooned that poster, replacing the nude swimmer with a bikini-clad screaming girl on an inflatable raft getting gnawed at by nasty little carnivores from under the water. Now, we get a poster that seems to be a blending of the two, in classic b-movie "faux folded" style, much like the posters for Grindhouse.

Check out the new poster below, and see all of our Piranha 3-D pictures in the gallery!
