Here's an extremely troubling photograph from an upcoming Samuel L. Jackson flick.

I wonder if this film got greenlighted with nothing more than a title...

It is really wild what a phenomenon this movie has become, even pre-release. Try googling it for both images and articles. It has to be the worst film ever made and its merchandise is already through the roof. And there seem to be bloggers writing about it all over cyberspace. Some of the posts are pretty stinking hilarious, too -- everyone seems to understand that this is such a bad looking film, but it doesn't seem to matter! Do we have the next cult-status classic on our hands here? Could this be the next Rocky Horror Picture Show?

I've got to admit, even I might want the shirt, and I thought I was the greatest dumb-movie snob of them all. The snakes are making me into a sucker! I HAVE GOT TO SEE SNAKES ON A PLANE, WHO WOULDN'T WANT TO SEE THIS?! I think I have Snakes on a Plane fever. grin.gif

Think this thing will give X3 a run for its money?

PS Bizarre, too, is that Jackson is going to be in another film this summer with Christina Ricci called Black Snake Moan. Is 2006 the YEAR OF THE SNAKE?

I fear, Anders, that I've only given you ammo for your use in getting back at me at how often I've harassed you over the years. unsure.gif

Yeah, this is my most-anticipated Hollywood movie currently in production.

...Perhaps because it is the only movie ballsy enough to kind of admit up front that it is going to no doubt be a cheesy, lesser experience? Its title alone suggests this.

Yep, plus the fact that it doesn't fit neatly into one of the easy boxes that characterize most of Hollywood's films these days, as it's not a sequel, spin-off, tie-in or remake. Just unabashed genre zaniness. And it's not built for the opening weekend ad/hype blitz. In other words, despite the title, it might have legs.

Dude, I don't think I encouraged you to see FRANKENFISH, did I? I've never seen it, myself.

You didn't encourage me, but you didn't stop me. You tacitly ratified my decision to watch it, which just isn't the sort of things friends do.

But I also encouraged you to see THE THING WITH TWO HEADS.

Which makes me your best friend.

That's just the way it works, pal. Regrettably, I am more into "C Movies" now.

I seriously cannot wait for this movie.

I really like the fact (or rumor) that Jackson signed on to the film solely because of its title. And that he threatened to leave the production after the folks in charge considered re-naming the movie.

I think I mentioned this in the X3 thread, but the opening night audience for X3 at the Chinese theatre in Hollywood came *this* close to giving the trailer for SoaP a standing ovation. Very funny experience.

Two or three weeks ago, a press screening for this film was booked for mid-August -- which was much more in advance than usual, though not entirely unheard of. Then, a week or two ago, the press screening was cancelled -- which was no big deal, since there was still an entire month to re-schedule it. And now, comes word that New Line is releasing the film without any critics' screenings AT ALL.

Because the fans have better dibs to this film than the critics, see.

Friends of mine are receiving personalized phone calls from Samuel L. Jackson.

It could happen to you.
