Hey folks, Harry here... Thanks goes out to Talkbacker ILK for Digg-ing up the link for SNAKES ON A PLANE teaser that was pirated and placed online in an AVI file. And it is pretty damn funny. I just wish it was titled SNAKES ON A MUTHERFUCKING PLANE! It would rule! Shit, it rules plenty anyways. Here ya go... slither-on...

Quint just spent 18 hours on a snakeless plane. The wimp. Here's SNAKES ON A PLANE!

    by Led Gopher

    I hate to say it, this looks like it could actually be fun to see with the right audience. I mean, from the little I have heard about this "film", the studio really decided to just make the movie as corny and as silly and they could. Sam Jackson obviously is not taking himself too seriously in this project and has more or less admitted to slumming it with this flick. I still don't know how or why movies like this get made. Such horrible ideas still end up making a little money. I would just like to see them at least break even with this one. Maybe it will start a new era of movies made just for fans of stuff like this. Big budget, low-brow, star-studded, popcorn romps every summer that are just fun to go to and not be ashamed to admit you saw it. Unlike some of these action flicks that act as if they are so damn superior and high-end art films. At least you have to admit this is an original idea rather than another sequel or re-make. True story.

    Hey, perfect example of how sometimes bad is good. Rarely great, but when it is, then bad is also sweet at the same time. Unfortunately, very often, less is more, too. The only thing going against this being a repeat-watchable -let's say- 'fun romp' is how it's been engineered, tweeked, trimmed, augmented, nipped & tucked to be one. But with the gamble so big, and my being a poor man, this will most likely be a rental for me, but it might be one chased with a purchase, which makes no sense, what with the poorness and shit.

    by OhDaesu

    Loud cheers and laughs, Snakes On A Plane will probably make an assload of money. I think the whole thing reeks of intentional ironic cheesiness. The studio made this as campy and cheesy as possible in hopes of luring people who want to laugh at a ridiculously made film.

    Warner Bros. Cranks Out 10-15 Direct-to-Video Movies Warner Bros. is planning to release 10-15 low-budget movies a year directly to DVD, most of them sequels or prequels to theatrical movies, the Los Angeles Times reported today (Tuesday). The studio's first release will be a sequel to 2005's The Dukes of Hazzard, which will be produced for about $5 million or less and will not include the original cast members of the movie. The studio is expected to focus on producing sequels to films that performed relatively well at the box office but not well enough to warrant a theatrical sequel.

    by I Dunno

    The greatness of the premise really only works if they play it straight and dead serious. Maybe that's how the actual movie will be but the teaser looked too much like a parody. It can't be too self aware or it'll become "Eight Legged Freaks".

    The studio knows the buzz on this is about camp value

    by rev_skarekroe

    So that's what they're selling. I doubt the marketing departments are aware of the value of playing it completely straight for the sake of a laugh. The filmmakers probably are, so even if the commercials are made to enhance the silliness, I'm hoping the actual movie is presented like it's Citizen Kane.

    Possible endings to Snakes on a Plane.

    by Hell_Bender

    Scenario One: Samuel L. Jackson discovers a new superbreed of snake, developed by the United States military, on board the plane. Quickly realizing that this snake could destroy the world, and knowing he would rather die than risk bringing this monster to the mainland, he decides to crash the plane into an offshore nitroglycerin plant. Scenario 2: After single-handedly killing all snakes on board and landing the plane, Jackson steps onto the tarmac and removes his trench coat only to reveal that he is, in fact, made entirely out of snakes. Scenario 3: While on the bus ride home from the airport, Jackson notices the bus driver seems nervous. The driver informs him that if the bus goes slower than 50 mph, snakes will drop from the ceiling. Samuel looks directly at the camera and says, "Here we go again" Scenario 4: As the plane is landing, Samuel Jackson is battling the last snake on the plane: a giant anaconda named Nancy. When he is about to let Nancy live by trapping her in a large duffle bag, he notices his father's wristwatch around her neck. Realizing that this is the snake that killed the man who raised him, Sam entangles Nancy's tail in the landing gear, simultaneously pur

    The reason it&#39;s spelled "Muther" sometimes

    by Mr. Profit

    Is because writing "Mother Fucker" makes you think about the original meaning behind the word which has since changed from a hardcore insult that was literal in it&#39;s meaning. (You fuck your mom&#39;s...) The word is now more of a regular curse word like something you say in passing or in reference to something silly a friend did like "This mutherfucker let his girlfriend toss his salad". It&#39;s like how Bitch became a regular word.

    trailer&#39;s up at Youtube

    by Freakemovie

    the link here is dead but it just showed up on Youtube. Pirated with a shaky handheld cam, but you&#39;ll get the idea. Although there&#39;s not much audience reaction--when I saw it in theaters a cheer went up.

    Snakes on the Plane looks TERRIBLE!

    by ninpobugei

    There is no longer any doubt that the bulk of people that read this site are morons. The trailer for Snakes on the Plane looks like the most ridiculous, low-IQ CGI flop fest ever conceived. Just because it&#39;s Sam Jackson is NOT any indicator that this will in any way be a good movie. All of you complain that you hate stupid, formulaic movies...HELLO, but what the hell do you call garbage like this? The CGI snakes were like some bad experimental computer animation from the 80&#39;s. I wouldn&#39;t see this movie at a FREE showing! Even the concept of the movie is a simple one-trick pony...gee whiz, snakes loose on a plane...ooh! How scary! Sounds interesting for, like, five minutes. Please.
