Support the Arts

The tour de force that is Snakes on a Plane is opening this week. I am joining the blogsphere in the effort to make it the biggest opening movie of the year, so I bought a ticket for this Friday. However, I don't actually want to see the movie, so I will not be attending. Anybody who is in the Altanta area this Friday, the 18th, and can get to the Regal Perimeter Point Stadium 10 in time for the morning showing, and can create a fake credit card that matches mine can claim the ticket and save themselves the $6.50.

Just looking at the commercial for Snakes On A Plane makes me squirm. I hate snakes *shivers*
BTW your comment on Angie's blog today cracked me up!

PBS said...

Well, that's nice of you. I'd like to see it, even if it's not exactly a work of art. The travel would cost more than $6.50 though.

Should I use my copy of your Visa or your Master Card?

TTD said...

i dont wanna see that movie.. snakes.. yuk!

$6.50 for a movie??? that is sooo cheap! our movies are $8 and above... some places have matinee movies for $7!

Grant said...

patti_cake - that's why I'm avoiding it. I don't care for 2 hours of CGI snakes, which are creepier than the real things because they're more fluid.

pbs - I'm just supporting it because of the title, the interest generated in the blogsphere, and Samuel Jackson.

death - just wave a gun in their face until they recognize you as me.

ttd - yes, everything is better here in Atlanta.

Tony said...

I already tried. They said the card was maxed-out. WTF!

annush said...

6.50?!?!?!
damn...even movies down there are cheap

Rick said...

I could've sworn that movie came out a year ago and I deftly avoided anything near it. Am I in a time warp???

Tracy Lynn said...

I want to see that flick. I like me some snakey action.

Doug Murata said...

Best shirt ever! I heard that it was supposed to be called Flight 47 or whatever the flight number actually was. The preliminary title was Snakes on a Plane and that was the reason Jackson wanted to do the movie. When they said they were going to change the title, he said no and they listened to him. That's quite possibly the most brilliant marketing move the movie industry has ever seen.

Liz said...

Good to know Grant. I'm getting on a plane tonight. Uh oh... there are snakes on it :P

Tai said...

Because we aren't allowed any liquids when we travel I'm marketing:

"JUICE ON A PLANE!"

Think it'll 'fly'!?!!!!????

(okay okay, I'll stop smokin' up.)

I forgot to mention that S.L. Jackson and I had drinks the night before shooting.

When his 'lacky' suggested that it might be called 'Pacific 121' I laughed at him and said "Or 'Snakes on a Plane' right??"
He looked confused.

The movie was partially shot in my back yard.
I had to move my car and apparently I named that damned movie.

You can send the royalties to:...Hello? Is this thing on??

What are those numbers on your card...and expiration date? Baby needs a new pair of shoes. I'm going online shopping! ;)

hellbunny said...

Ive seen the trailor for that.As if there isn't enough to contend with these days with terrorists on the planes now they want to kill us with snakes as well.

The Stiltwalker said...

I'll see this in the Bahamas this weekend. Might as well join the rest of society...

Enemy of the Republic said...

I'm dying to see it and so does my son, but it's rated R. But he saw the Matrix and was okay with that. If anyone sees it, let me know how it would affect a soon to be 8 year old boy who LOVES snakes. It just looks like a riot to me. But if it's inappropriate, I can't take my kid.

Seven said...

Is it rated R because the snakes are naked? Perspiring minds want to know....

GirlGoyle said...

Makes me wonder if this is from the same producer of Mamba...I mean how unrealistic does that look like? Lately the snakes on planes profess extremist views, have legs and arms but doubtful they have brains.

mal said...

Damn! I have a previous engagement, I already committed to defrosting the freezer......

JohnB said...

A good mongoose is all that plane needs.

Grant said...

tony - I'm forwarding my bill to you so you can solve that maxed-out problem.

annush - as you already know, everything is superior in Marietta. :p

tracy - okay, the ticket is waiting for you.

doug - I heard almost the opposite. But you're right, the word of mouth and involvement of the bloggysphere will probably do more for this film than any conventional advertising.

liz - wear body armor on the plane just in case.

tai #1 - I already came up with the sequel - Fart in a Church!

tai #2 - I remember your post. See my post today - I'm beginning to think that Canada has no business in the movie industry. :p

~deb - my card # is 666 - no expiration date.

hellbunny - I wonder if the terrorists will try this one next.

stilt - yes, contribute to the phenomenon.

enemy - I think the R comes from Samuel Jackson's f-bombs, so you can decide whether or not it's inappropriate.

seven - please see above.

girl - I think the CGI snakes will be a slight improvement, but they still are not completely realistic.

mal - then just buy a ticket and don't go. It's our duty to make this the biggest picture of the year.

johnb - until it finishes the snakes and has to eat people to survive. What do you use to kill a mongoose - a wolverine?
