"Snakes On A Plane"

Fri Mar 31, 2006 12:52 pm

Has anyone seen the trailer to this movie yet? Basically the premise is snakes are placed on a transpacific flight and released to kill some witness. Samuel L. Jackson is starring in it.

Here is the trailer:

On iMDB:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0417148/

I hope we have some great quotes from this movie like, "I just want to tell you both good luck. We're all counting on you."

Well I'll certainly go to the movie on opening night to point out all the aviation inaccuracies about it

Just a lovely plot, unleashing a crate full of King Cobras or Diamondback Rattlesnakes, not sure what type, but let them kill all passengers since they can't land at a near enough airport that has a hospital equipped with the anti-venom serum needed to help these people. Such horror! A B-class waste of Hollywood $$$, destined to crash and burn faster than a Vicars Comet!

This is definately going to be a B-movie. How factually inaccurate? I dunno. Supposedly people end up entering the cockpit, dunno how it happens though.

They went back to reshoot parts of the movie, including a line for Samuel L Jackson where he says, "I want these MF'ing snakes off the MF'ing plane!"

Yeah, it looks totally bad. I think it is supposed to be a bit of a tongue in cheek rip off of the seventies movies like Piranha and the Bees meet Airport. I'm not sure if I should cringe in horror or enjoy it for what its worth.

Quoting Spinkid (Reply 6):

It definitely is just a new variation of an old plot line. We have seen people getting attacked by some form of creature while stuck in a place where they can't get out hundreds of times. Some were good like Jurassic Park and some were bad like Anaconda. I am doubtful that this will be good, but there is a possibility.

I don't know any Vicars who own their own comets . As for the DH Comet , pioneer of jet travel , that was from De Havilland ... not from V..I..C..K..E..R..S  Big grin
