'Snakes' Winds Up B.O. Roadkill
So much for the hype! Like most reptiles, 'Snakes on a Plane' died an ignominious death at the theaters this weekend. The high concept but low turnout flick opened with a weak $13.8 million for second place, unless you count the studio's desperate attempt to get beancounters to include their Thursday night ticket sales of about $1.5 million. (Apparently, moviegoers would rather see 'Talladega Nights' WILL FERRELL prancing around in his tidy whities than those "mother-effin' snakes on that mother-effin' plane!") Today, the Wow Report chronicled the snakes tragic overdose outside the Viper Room last night, and the movie's star SAMUEL JACKSON is reportedly calling all ticket-buyers personally to apologize for the debacle.
