I went to the screening of this today and liked it. It has some very funny scenes and lines intermixed with the obvious havoc of the snakes on a plane. I want to see it again! The screening was not well-attended though, which surprised me.

The screening I attended the crowd went crazy. It was pure summer entertainment. Check your brain at the door and have fun!
This is what summer movies is all about! Grab that popcorn and sit back and enjoy!

[dont think this is going to be as big as people think......]

Not sure what you're hearing, but most box office websites are predicting about $30 million for opening weekend for SOAP, $75 million overall. Puts it in the same league as last summer's "Dukes of Hazzard." I think it's going to play more like "Freddy Vs. Jason" or "Aliens Vs. Predator." Those are two movies that opened well in August, but dropped off quickly and made less than $100 million. If you can get it for 2 weeks, it'll probably do better than anything else out there.

Our booker told us that the film co wants to make this into an audience participation cult film. Rocky Horror?????

Anyone else hear this? I have not been on any of the SOP websites to see.

Anybody showing it on Thursday night? I know of at least one place doing that. I'm surprised I haven't seen more advertising for this film in print and on TV yet. Does the studio think that internet buzz alone will open this film?

At the begining of the summer some I think i heard one quote saying this was the biggest film to have never been shown.

We will have to see after it opens if it holds true.

I was in Blockbuster yesterday and saw a new release titled "Snakes on a Train". No kidding!

We bought snakes in all sizes from Oriental Trading and our theatres are now full of snakes for 35.00 each. Snakes in a Theatre!

Looks like it is underperforming to expectations.
http://www.boxofficeprophets.com/column/index.cfm?columnID=9696

It turns out that BOP was over-optimistic on the opening weekend prospects of the long-discussed Snakes on a Plane. Steve Mason had projected that the movie would earn $39-42 million in its first three days, while Reagen Sulewski had forecast $44 million. Both analysts were banking on the fact that the Internet buzz had been roaring almost from the moment the film's title was announced. The question, though, was always whether that type of fanboy buzz could truly translate to great August box office like horror predecessors Alien vs. Predator and Freddy vs. Jason. Apparently, if you don't have a "vs." in your title, $40+ million is not in the cards. Ordinarily, BOP eschews tracking numbers, which can give a good general sense of awareness and potential, but oftentimes will miss certain breakout films. This week, however, trackiing was closer than we were, although it was slightly low. Snakes on a Plane earned $7.8 million on Friday, a number that does include late-night Thursday showings totalling $1.5 million. As far as the weekend goes, Snakes on a Plane will suffer both from being in the horror genre and from having fanboys that rushed out to see it on Friday. A 2.5 Friday-to-Sunday multiplier would be quite in line with expectations, which would give the Samuel L. Jackson film $17.3 million for the weekend. We're disappointed that more animals-eating-people fans didn't give this more of a shot, particularly since it's even Fresh at RottenTomatoes.

First-day performance was just under that of "Talladega Nights", now entering its 3rd week out here.

Still, there wasn't much else out there.

27 people for the thur 10pm show. Accepted, Talladega, and Step Up all beat Snakes for us on Friday. Snakes was only $31 ahead of Barnyard, also now in it's third week.
