Synopsis

After witnessing the brutal murder of a prosecutor by gangster Eddie Kim (Byron Lawson) and his band of thugs, Sean Jones (Nathan Phillips) is escorted by FBI agents Neville Flynn (Samuel L. Jackson) and John Sanders (Mark Houghton) to testify in a highly publicized case in Los Angeles. Despite increased security for the flight, Kim arranges for time-release crates full of venomous snakes to be placed in the cargo hold of the plane on which Jones will be flying from Honolulu to Los Angeles. The leis given to the passengers by airport staff upon their departure had been secretly sprayed with pheromones to make the snakes more aggressive in an attempt to bring down the plane before it reaches its destination. A district attorney is, in some U.S. jurisdictions, the title of the local public official who represents the government in the prosecution of criminals. ...

The crate opens midway through the flight, and the snakes make their way throughout the cabin due to a tampered access hatch. A woman named Kelly (Samantha McLeod) and her boyfriend Kyle (Taylor Kitsch) took off their shirts and were having sex in the bathroom when they are unexpectedly attacked by snakes, which then kill them by biting Kyle on the neck and Kelly on the right breast. The second victim was also killed in the aircraft toilet while he was urinating when a snake came out of the toilet bowl and latched onto his penis. Numerous other passengers, the flight captain, and Agent Sanders are also killed. The surviving passengers flee first to the front of the airliner, putting up a blockade of luggage. However, Mercedes (along with Mary Kate) and Maria and her infant daughter, Isabella are knocked aside by the crowd and are trapped in the rear of the plane. Chen Leong rescues Mercedes and Mary Kate while Grace hears Isabella's cries. Grace saves Isabella but gets bitten by a rattlesnake and later dies. The four break through the luggage blockade but it is quickly rebuilt. However the snakes break through due to turbulence caused by the co-pilot being attacked by a snake, the surviving passengers flee to First Class, hoping it will be safer. As they are making their way up the stairs, a Burmese python falls into the cabin from the lighting panel where it was hiding and turns on Paul and Mercedes. Paul tries to distract the python by flinging Mercedes' dog, Mary Kate, into the python's jaws. The tactic only provides a momentary distraction, as Paul is also eaten by the snake. A trolley full of snakes crashes into Tyler and Ashley, pinning them against a wall. Unable to recover from the crash in time, they are killed by the snakes.

Agent Flynn contacts FBI Special Agent Hank Harris (Bobby Cannavale) on the ground, who arranges for emergency crews to be waiting at Los Angeles International Airport. Agent Harris then calls ophiologist Dr. Steven Price (Todd Louiso), who asks Flynn to gather the dead snakes so Flynn can describe them to Price and Price can identify the snakes and therefore the antivenom needed. This proves fruitless as the passengers don't know anything about snakes. Mercedes, however, comes up with the idea of sending Dr. Price photos of the dead snakes using her smartphone. It is learned that the deadly crate was full of exotic snakes from around the world, which leads the FBI, with Agent Harris and Dr. Price in command, to a man named Kraitler (Darren Moore), who is the only person in the Los Angeles area who would be capable of gathering the rare snakes found on the plane. Agent Harris extracts a confession from Kraitler, who says that he was the person who illegally obtained the snakes for Kim's use.

Meanwhile, Flynn descends into the bottom of the plane in order to restore the air conditioning/ventilation system, without which the plane would overheat and plummet into the ocean. While searching for the switch, he angrily discovers a mechanical panel intentionally left open to allow the snakes to reach the cabin where the passengers were located. When he returns to First Class, Flynn is contacted by Harris, who lets Flynn know that they have the antivenom and that it will be waiting for Flight 121 when it lands in Los Angeles. However, it is soon discovered that the cockpit is filled with snakes and that the surviving co-pilot, Rick (David Koechner), is dead. When Claire asks the passengers if any of them know how to fly a plane, Flynn tells her that he can land it because he is sure that the control tower can talk him through it. But then Three G's tells Flynn that he knows who can land the plane - his bodyguard Troy. Troy says that he has over 2,000 hours of flight experience and agrees to land the plane. After Claire reminds everybody that the snakes have to be cleared out of the cockpit, Flynn delivers the movie's fan-anticipated catchphrase: "Enough is enough! I have had it with these motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking plane!" He tells everybody to "strap in", because he is "about to open some fucking windows". After everybody gets prepared, Flynn uses his pistol to shoot out two windows, causing the plane to depressurize. The cockpit door is opened and the snakes are sucked out, along with the majority of the snakes on the lower floor of the plane as well as half-swallowed Paul and the Burmese python around him.

Flynn and Troy take the controls of the plane. Troy reveals that his flight experience was actually from a flight simulator for the PlayStation 2. With nobody else on the plane having as much flight experience of any sort as Troy, Flynn talks the control tower into letting him land the plane. After a bumpy landing and a near collision with one of the buildings at the airport, Flight 121 is safely back on the ground. The surviving passengers finally set foot on land, and antivenom is given to those who need it. However, just as Flynn and Sean are about to get off the plane, a final snake drops from overhead and bites Sean in the chest. Flynn draws his gun and blasts the snake, causing Sean to tumble down the slide. Paramedics rush up to Sean, and Flynn rips open Sean's shirt to reveal a bulletproof vest with two bullets embedded in it from Flynn shooting the snake. As the passengers and crew depart, Flynn offers to repay Claire by taking her out for dinner on a date, and Tiffany kisses Sean and writes her phone number on his hand.

History

The story is credited to David Dalessandro, a University of Pittsburgh administrator and first-time Hollywood writer, who developed the concept in 1992 after reading a nature magazine. Dalessandro said: "I read about the Indonesian brown tree snake climbing onto planes in cargo during World War II." He originally wrote the screenplay about the brown tree snake loose on a plane, titling the film Venom. He soon revised it, expanding upon the premise to include a plague of assorted poisonous snakes, then—crediting the film Alien—revised it once again to include "lots of them loose in the fuselage of a plane."[5] The University of Pittsburgh, commonly referred to as Pitt, is a state-related, doctoral/research university in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States. ...

Dalessandro's third draft of Venom was turned down by more than 30 Hollywood studios in 1995. However, in 1999, a producer for MTV/Paramount showed interest in the script, followed up by New Line Studios, which took over the rights for production.

Originally, the film was going to be directed by Hong Kong action director Ronny Yu. Jackson, who had previously worked with Yu on The 51st State, learned about the announced project in the Hollywood trade newspapers and, after talking to Yu, agreed to sign on without reading the script based on the director, storyline and allegedly the title.[6] Ronny Yu (Chinese: ) (born 1950) is a Chinese director, producer, and movie writer. ... The 51st State is a 2001 film directed by Ronny Yu, starring Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Carlyle and Emily Mortimer. ...


Surprisingly, the film's title and premise generated a lot of pre-release interest on the Internet. One journalist even wrote that Snakes on a Plane is "perhaps the most internet-hyped film of all time".[7] Much of the initial publicity came from a blog entry made by screenwriter Josh Friedman, who had been offered a chance to work on the script.[8] The casting of Jackson further increased anticipation. At one point, the film's working title was altered to Pacific Air Flight 121. In August 2005, Jackson told an interviewer, "We're totally changing that back. That's the only reason I took the job: I read the title."[9][10] On March 2, 2006, the studio reverted the title to Snakes on a Plane. New Line hired two additional writers to smooth out the screenplay.[5] To meet Wikipedias quality standards, this article or section may require cleanup. ...

Taking advantage of the Internet buzz for what had been a minor movie in their 2006 line-up, New Line Cinema ordered five days of additional shooting in early March 2006[11] (principal photography had wrapped in September 2005). While re-shoots normally imply problems with a film, the producers opted to add new scenes to the film to take the movie from PG-13 into R-rated territory and bring the movie in line with growing fan expectations. The most notable addition was a revision of a catchphrase from the film that was parodied on the Internet by fans of the film, capitalizing on Jackson's typical movie persona: "Enough is enough! I have had it with these motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking plane!". Subsequently, the public responded favorably to this creative change and marketing strategy, leading some members of the press to speculate that "the movie has grown from something of a joke into a phenomenon".[12][13][14][15] Principal Photography refers to the phase of film production during which the movie is actually shot, as distinct from pre-production and post-production. ...

The press declared that Snakes on a Plane was a "box office disappointment",[1][3] with the New York Times reporting that after all the "hype Online, Snakes on a Plane is letdown at box office"[18] and Entertainment Weekly reporting that the film was an "internet-only phenomenon."[3] The film debuted on August 18, 2006 with some late-night screenings on August 17, 2006. Due to the amount of Internet hype surrounding the film, industry analysts estimated the movie's opening box office to be between US$20 million and US$30 million.[19] While Snakes on a Plane did narrowly beat Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby for #1 during its opening weekend, it failed to meet these estimates and grossed only US$15.25 million in its opening days, a disappointment for New Line Cinema.[1] In its second weekend, the movie fell to 6th place with US$6.4 million, a 57.6% loss from its opening weekend revenue.[20][21][22] By the end of its theatrical run, the movie generated approximately $59,377,419 worldwide.[23] The New York Times is an internationally known daily newspaper published in New York City and distributed in the United States and many other nations worldwide. ...

Snakes

Over 450 snakes were used for filming to represent thirty different species of snakes.[54] The different species include a 19-foot Burmese python named Kitty (which the crew named Kong for film purposes), a Scarlet Kingsnake (the non-venomous double for the coral snake), a milk snake to fill in for the Taipan (which attacks the couple having sex), corn snakes, rattlesnakes, and mangrove snakes.[55] About two-thirds of the snakes seen throughout the film were either animatronic or computer generated.[56] The snakes that were real were mostly the non-venomous ones that are never seen attacking anyone per se. The scenes where someone is clearly bitten were often done with the most animation. According to the DVD, "all" the snakes had production names, but only "Scarface" (an animated pit viper), "Peanut" (a cobra) and Kong are mentioned by name in the audio commentary.

Snakes on a Plane - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (3790 words)
Snakes on a Plane was promoted highly on the Pod-cast Filmspotting, formerly known as Cinecast.
One of the snakes seen on the plane (specifically, the one that crawls into Mercedes' purse, and later is blown up in the microwave) is a Scarlet Kingsnake, a non-venomous snake that is often confused with the deadly Coral Snake.
The snake that attacks the couple having sex in the commode is known as the milk snake.
SOAP (Snakes on a Plane) at WorstPreviews™ (678 words)
Snakes on a Plane arrives riding a wave of internet-generated hype and, I gather, a massive confusion of expectations.
Though Snakes on a Plane is never less than entertaining, the best snake action is (spoiler alert) mostly over by the final act, and once the excitement of violence, sex, snakes, and Jackson subsides, it's admittedly difficult not to feel a little like a kid the day after Christmas.
After all, Snakes on a Plane is more or less the last word on cheesy snake thrillers, to say nothing of thrillers wherein a ridiculous number of animals are loosed in a confined space.
