So far, I've seen the trailer for Snakes on a Plane twice in theaters. Both times, the audience laughed their heads off. I'm sure this is not what the producers had in mind, considering this is NOT a comedy.

Has anyone else seen the trailer and does anyone else think this could be a career-killer for Samuel L. Jackson?

Wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org) has way more about the phenomenon that is Snakes on a Plane than I could ever begin to explain. Suffice to say, the studio knows exactly what it has on its hands.

The producers TOTALLY know what they're getting into here, and they're loving every second of it. Maaaaybe when it first started out they had intentions of making it a serious movie, but the minute the internet latched onto it and the viral marketing started up, this sucker became a cult hit waiting to happen. The fact that people enjoyed the trailer so much (at least in the two movies that I've been at), is a sign that the marketing has worked SO well that even people outside the internet filmsites have kind of been taken in by the whole thing.

If nothing, I'm guessing it will help Sam Jackson's career in showing that he's having fun making movies, especially ones as ludicrous as this.

I saw a trailer for it Friday before X3. My theater sat in stunned silence and then laughed when they heard the title. It doesn't seem, to me at least, that the general public will take this flick seriously.

That's exactly the point. This is a ready-made ludicrous cult action movie, and the studio are very smartly marketing it as such. Withou the following that's already sprung up around it it would've been a low-to-middling earner at best, so they've embraced the cheesiness.



To those who say people wouldn't look; they wouldn't be interested; they're too complacent, indifferent and insulated, I can only reply: There is, in one reporter's opinion, considerable evidence against that contention. But even if they are right, what have they got to lose? Because if they are right, and this instrument is good for nothing but to entertain, amuse and insulate, then the tube is flickering now and we will soon see that the whole struggle is lost. This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires, and lights, in a box.-Edward R. Murrow

The cult of this movie is staggering, and it hasn't even been released yet.

I'm predicting right now that this flick will be the single greatest movie going experience that I will have (this year on the day that it comes out.), other then that, it'll be more enjoyabe then the entireity of X3, which (I know...) isn't really saying much, but still.

The first time I wore it out, my friends were like: "WTF is THAT supposed to be?" After I explained the movie to them, they dug it. This is going to be the best movie ever made, if only to hear this: http://sammyldelivers.ytmnd.com/ (The f-bomb is dropped twice, so watch out)

"That's it. I've had it with these motherfuckin' snakes on this motherfuckin' plane!"

HEE! Ironically, from what I understand that line was inserted into the movie after some Internet fans came up with that phrase to parody SLJ's um, well-known movie persona.

I think we already have a case of the hype being better than the movie itself.

IANAD, but the hype is about how bad the movie is.

I'm looking forward to the inevitable sequel, Snakes on a Train. Or, Snakes in a Limo.

My friends and I spent one lunch seeing who would win various contests, such as
Snakes on a Plane vs. Predator in a Boat (Predator)
Snakes on a Plane vs. Terminator in a Hot Air Balloon (Snakes)
Snakes on a Plane vs. Gremlins on Skateboards (Draw)

We need lives, sure, but the movie has our attention, which isn't always a bad thing.
