Snakes! On a plane! With Samuel L. Jackson!

In 2006, there will be a movie, starring Samuel L. Jackson, called SNAKES ON A PLANE. I kid you not. Here is the IMDb entry. Here are some production stills. Here is a brief interview with Samuel L. Jackson:

Beaks: One of those films that you’re working on right now is... well, it’s called "Pacific Air 121"—

Jackson: Snakes on a Plane, man!

Beaks: Exactly.

Jackson: We’re totally changing that back. That’s the only reason I took the job: I read the title.

Beaks: Snakes on a Plane! That’s everything!

Jackson: You either want to see that, or you don’t.

And there's not even a trailer out yet, but there are already [two] [t-shirts] people made, the second care of this comic.

This is gonna be the movie with the most snakes on a plane, ever!

SNAKES ON A PLANE, MAN! SNAKES ON A PLANE!

Also, some people are already trying to turn it into a slang term. (Many of these links courtesy of the Jacobian.)

Snakes on a plane!

[Smurf Bombing] The only movie that might be better than Snakes on a Plane? UNICEF's movie depicting the aerial bombardment of Smurf Village. I kid you not.

The reactions ranged from approval to shock and, in the case of small children who saw the episode by accident, wailing terror.

The short film pulls no punches. It opens with the Smurfs dancing, hand-in-hand, around a campfire and singing the Smurf song. Bluebirds flutter past and rabbits gambol around their familiar village of mushroom- shaped houses until, without warning, bombs begin to rain from the sky.

Tiny Smurfs scatter and run in vain from the whistling bombs, before being felled by blast waves and fiery explosions. The final scene shows a scorched and tattered Baby Smurf sobbing inconsolably, surrounded by prone Smurfs.

Julie Lamoureux, account director at Publicis for the campaign, said the agency's original plans were toned down.

"We wanted something that was real war - Smurfs losing arms, or a Smurf losing a head -but they said no."

Update Jan-23-2006: I finally found a couple of copies of the video, and I blogged about that.
