New Samuel L. Jackson movie. Due in August 2006. Any movie with a title like "Snakes on a Plane" deserves a thread, no? I can't imagine actually going to see it, though:

Quote:
On board a flight over the Pacific Ocean, an assassin, bent on killing a passenger who's a witness in protective custody, let loose a crate full of deadly snakes.

That plot is . . . a little thin.

True to the title, here are snakes. On a plane.

I think I've been on a flight once in my life that was that empty. Where did everyone go? Did the snakes already eat them? And just how many snakes fit in a crate? Are these normal snakes or have they been genetically engineered to be "smart"? Has Sam Jackson ever turned down a film offer?

So many questions....Posted Image

I believe its from the guys who made Cellular which was quite fun and certainly didn't take itself seriously. With a title like "Snakes on a Plane" I'm guessing this one will have the same tone and hopefully the same amount of fun. I'm looking forward to it.

Not that it matters, but is this a goofy Blaxploitation thing? Based on that title I'd expect htis to be a 1940's serial.

I found a great IMDb message board post (that's pretty much an oxymoron) related to that question:

Quote:
"Snakes on a Plane!"

It already is the tagline, the premise and the title. It's everything! That's why this movie is the best thing to ever happen. And you have to tip your hat to Samuel L. Jackson for only needing to hear the title to know that this is something he needed to be a part of.

Also, somebody's whipped up a joke poster:

Warning: PG-13 language (or is it R?)

Snakes.....Why did it have to be snakes?!? Posted Image
Bring back John Doe! Or at least resolve the cliff-hanger with a 2hr movie or as an extra on a dvd release.

I guess someone else got the rights to "Scorpions on a Sub"?

This HAS to be a Zucker bros style comedy, right? RIGHT?

PLEASE GOD LET IT BE A ZUCKER STYLE COMEDY! DON"T LET HOLLYWOOD STOOP SO LOW AS TO SERIOUSLY MAKE A MOVIE CALLED "SNAKES ON A PLANE"!

This might be good. I don't know much about it, but, while not a comedy, it sounds like the filmmakers have their tongues firmly planted in cheek...

I actually passed out from that post!

The Sequel could be "Plane on some Snakes" In which a plane full of snakes crashes into a mountain in Peru, full of MORE SNAKES! They could get Wesley Snipes to be in it.Posted Image

There's a picture on that Rotten tomato's link (I'm too stupid to know how to post it) of Jackson helping a guy who is sticking his groin out. Maybe the plane is full of trouser snakes? (Jackson does not look impressed in that picture!)

That IMDB post is actually an excerpt from Josh Friedman's
blog - not coincidentally one of the funniest and searingly spot-on blogs on the planet.

Unfortunately, it looks like the original blog "Snakes on a motherfucking plane" is missing! Here's more:

"What else do you need to know? How the snakes get on the plane, what the snakes do once they're on the plane, who puts the snakes on the plane, who is trying to get the snakes off the plane...This is not for you to ponder. There are snakes on the plane. End of fucking story."

I can't wait for this thing. Unintentional comedy or no, just the sheer balls of Hollywood saying "yunno what? Fuck it. It's snakes on a plane. You're going to see it or you won't. But it's snakes on a plane, so I bet you will" that has me dying laughing everytime I think about it. No movie can get any more high concept. None. The pitch is the TITLE. That's it. It's beautiful.

I cannot wait.

This is actually going to be a touching metaphor of terroism (snakes) in a post 9/11 world (the plane).



NO IT'S NOT! IT'S A GOD DAMN PLANE FULL OF FRIGGEN SNAKES! AND BLESS THERE EVIL LITTLE STONE HEARTS FOR MAKING IT!!

"I went in with low expectations and to my surprise actually enjoyed it"

"If you go in expecting Citizen Kane, you will be dissapointed"

"Leave your brain at the door"

"This is pure popcorn entertainment"

"I avoided this one in the theater due to horrible reviews, decided to rent it on the advice of a friend... it was much better than expected. Glad I saw it, I will be picking up the DVD!"
