Snakes on a Plane Becomes a Reality for Terrified Airline Passengers

Earlier this summer, the cult hit Snakes on a Plane celebrated its 10th Anniversary, and as implausible as that movie was, it just became a reality for a group of Mexican airline passengers. During an AeroMexico flight from Torreon to Mexico City yesterday, passenger Indalecio Medina posted a video to social media, which shows a massive snake, believed to be a venomous green viper, falling from an overhead compartment to the main cabin. The plane was given priority clearance to land in Mexico City so that animal control could properly remove the snake.

He also posted another brief video on Twitter that shows animal control workers removing the snake. Here's what a representative for AeroMexico airlines had to say in a statement. »

Ellis, a stuntman turned director, and starring a never louder Samuel L. Jackson, the airborne, serpent-heavy thriller finally reached theaters on August 18, 2006, after months of inescapable online hype. The film turned a modest profit on its not-inconsiderable $33 million budget, but it was considered a disappointment when judged against New Line Cinema’s sky-high expectations. The studio had been banking on the deafening internet buzz and had even tailored the film to meet fan’s expectations, necessitating five days of reshoots. Now that the film is a decade old, it is time to reflect on what Snakes On A Plane achieved and failed to achieve in 2006, as well as what the film’s lasting impact on popular »
