S.O.A.P. - The "Real" Summer Blockbuster

Move over Superman. Pirates of the Carribbean what? The movie the people want to see is a movie that most people would usually do their best to ignore. It's the movie of the people. A movie that was meant for the abyss of useless demi-horror flicks. It's S.O.A.P - Snakes on a Plane, of course. A film about reptiles on a large aviation with vehicles with Samuel L. Jackson and Kenan from "All That," and Fat Albert.

So the latest bit of hubbub I've been seeing here and there like Cinematical is complaints about the American teaser poster. You know those stupid posters that give advance notice of a movie. Usually a little icon like an X for X-men and a date. These are the posters before the "official" poster. Gotta keep the marketers workin. What's the complaint? There are no SNAKES in the poster. It is a bit ridiculous. It's like their being no roaches on the poster for Joe's Apartment. Sever mismanagement.

Here's the poster:

And here's the French poster:

See the difference? Motherfucking snakes!! And the Frenchised title.
