There’s the story about Snakes on a Plane getting made because some LA movie makers were at a bar playing a game where the goal was the come up with the stupidest movie pitch possible. I have a feeling that people saw the cult attention Snakes on a Plane received before it came out and decided they could make a better marketing campaign. This was a bad idea because none of the people who gushed about Snakes on a Plane before it came out actually went to see it and the movie flopped.
I wonder how they decided how to bill Lorenzo Lamas above Debbie Gibson? I wonder how mega a shark would have to be to allow it to jump out of the water and catch an air plane?
