Dimension Pulls “Piranha,” “Amityville” Dates

No major surprise here, Dimension Films has reportedly pulled both “Piranha 3DD” and “The Amityville Horror: The Lost Tapes” from the schedule and will now release them “sometime in 2012” reports Dread Central.

Neither film had publicity materials available as yet, a surprise in the case of ‘Piranha’ which was scheduled to open in five weeks. Its delay is thus no real shock as the studio would’ve been rushing to meet that date anyway.

No word yet on what the new dates will be or even if they will still be theatrical, though in the case of ‘Piranha’ it’s likely. Last year’s “Piranha 3D” managed to score not just good reviews but an $83 million worldwide gross.
