July 13, 2010 - Piranha 3D / movie preview pulled from Comic-Con

Scooped on Tuesday, July 13, 2010

Piranha 3D cast member Paul Scheer told his Twitter followers that "Comic Con bans Piranha 3D for being 'Too wild!'" Chud follows up with an explanation: when the administrators of Comic-Con deemed the footage of Piranha 3D that was supposed to play at the Weinstein Films panel too gory, the studio decided to pull its entire Piranha presence from the panel.

this is not the first time that "the administrators of the Comic-Con" have deemed a trailer or footage offensive... remember that the red-band trailer for Saw IV or V was supposed to debut at Comic-Con (that was the one with not-so-subtle bold black letters "FUCK" against an all red frame) instead that debuted quietly on youtube instead.

I think that these last three or four years (2006, 07,08 and 09) there has been a rise in young children present at Comic-Con running around without any parental supervision, and since they really cannot keep children out of the panel rooms (a SDCC badge gets you in no matter what age you are) they really do have to step in and say "whoah... no no!!" to these panel people that want to shock their audience with some never-before-seen-gory-"not rated" footage with lots of the juicy red stuff and blatant swear words.

sucks for the rest of us though, the SDCC now has been sterilized and child-proofed.

the alternative would be to move the panel after hours (10pm or 11pm), and/or bump it over to the Hilton bay towers in one of the ballrooms where they are showing Lost Boys III: the Thirst
