We know you love those Snakes on a Plane almost as much as we do. Okay, sure, it looks cheesy as hell, but would YOU want to be trapped on a plane at 20,000 feet with a bunch of poisonous snakes? Nonetheless, who ever would have thought a film about snakes -- on a plane -- would have so many people so excited? Not me, that's for sure. But somehow, the presence of Samuel L. Jackson makes me feel just a teensy bit better about wanting to see this film. I mean, c'mon. Samuel L. Jackson kicking a bunch of snake butt? Well, technically I suppose snakes don't have "butts", but I so wanna see Jackson get all righteous on those slithery reptiles.
Lucky for you, Cinematical readers, our cohorts from Netscape (including former Cinematical editor Karina Longworth) will be in San Diego for Comic-Con, and Cinematical has been offered a sneak peek at the Snakes on a Plane booth, which the good folks at New Line (who, I might add, have been leading the forefront in bringing film bloggers into their marketing strategy) assure us will be mind-blowingly astounding. They maybe didn't use those exact words, but they did imply it will be cool. There will be a graffiti wall! And a huge snake!
Take a look as these super-sneak peeks they just sent us and see what you think, and be sure to check back here frequently later this week, fanboys and fangirls, for more Comic-Con coverage than you can shake a ... well, a snake at.
Sneak-peek pics after the jump ...p>
Giant, apparently plaster snake head. Which will presumably be painted to look scary.
Another view of the giant, scary snake head.
Even Julie Andrews is excited about Snakes on a Plane. Okay, just seeing if you're paying attention.
The SoaP Graffiti Wall. Under construction. Will it be ready in time for the walk-through? We can only hope. And pray.
Close up view of the graffiti wall. If you look very closely, you'll notice there's a snake. On a plane. Get it?
