Today in 'Snakes on a Plane'

9539__snakes_l_4Did the hype for Snakes on a Plane peak too early? No doubt a bunch of you are hissing ”YESSSSSSSSS.” When even JoBlo is bored by the latest serpents-on-an-aircraft teasers, you have to wonder if premature burnout isn’t going to be a factor this weekend. Still, that’s not going to keep PopWatch from beating this into the ground like Springfielders on Whacking Day. So here are our favorite Snakes on a Plane links of the day:

-Turns out the film isn’t really that far-fetched, judging by these real-life snake/plane incidents.

-Even National Geographic is getting in on the SoaP action. Purely in the interest of science and biology, of course.

-The squirmiest part about making a movie with several hundred snakes? Cleaning up all the snake poop.

-Talking to Jon Stewart on The Daily Show the other night, Samuel L. Jackson offered a mild spoiler on his character’s fate.

-What to do for the inevitable sequel? Jackson offers an idea inspired by a recent news story: Rats on a Plane. He even has a brilliantly profane tagline already written.

-MSNBC has some ideas for other animal/vehicle thrillers. But the competitors in the ”Blanks on a Blank” short film contest have probably used up all the good ones.

    I knew it! EW’s bloggers, for as much as they claim, would rather show SoaP some more love than show MADONNA any! It’s the Queen of Pop’s birthday! WHERE IS HER HAIKU???

    Woah. Martin has just pointed out a boobo bigger than the time that I ate some altoids then drank a diet cola…
    If the hype’s over, my azz is going to be lonely tomorrow night at that midnight screening. Is anyone else going to be the first one on their block to be quoting Samuel L this time around? I sure do m*therf*cking hope so.

    Hype or no hype. It’s snakes on a plane. I’ll say that again. It’s SNAKES on a PLANE. It’s please put your tray tables in the upright and locked position and btw, watch out for that anaconda. That’s awesome and if you think its awesome then you’re going to see the movie no matter what the hype is. If you don’t think that’s awesome, then you’re a poopyhead…
    “I want these MF snakes of this MF plane!” That’s brilliant.

    Poopyhead here. Find someone’s old 16mm vacation film, hype the crap out of it. Blog it to death. Put it on the cover of EW and have Samuel L. Jackson go on the talk show circuit yelling MF grand canyon. It would do 20 million the first week.

    i would put money on this taking the top of the box office this weekend. all those people hyping up this movie are going to pour money into it. seriously, there were tee shirts for sale six months ago. its already a cult classic.

    That tag line from Jackson for Rats on a Plane is brilliant. Didn’t realize he was that funny.

    Did anyone see the premiere of Pimp My Ride?
    Right there… Mice on the Ice Cream Truck… and you don’t even have to write, cast, film or direct it!
