Trailers: Snakes on a Plane

Posted by Peter Hall - June 26th 2006 @ 8:57 pm


I’d been waiting for the real trailer to come out just so I could use that line, but, in reality, this trailer TV spot is incredibly boring and entirely undeserving of such enthusiasm.  Except for this shot of Samuel L. Jackson holding what looks like an underwater harpoon gun.  Because nothing kills snakes, on a plane, better than a harpoon, apparently…

    I don’t think that is the “real” trailer. Seems like a TV spot at best.

    Yeah, I guess Yahoo! themselves call it a “first look”. But it’s more of a trailer than that title card teaser or the sales reel.

    Either way, it’s pretty damn bland and sure as hell doesn’t live up to the net hype. I hope the marketing department doesn’t drop the ball, because at this point, even though everyone and their brother has made a joke about the movie, people won’t go if the trailers don’t play into the hype.

    But I’m no Hollywood insider…
