Jackson's films will land at NL

19 September 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

New Line Cinema has signed a two-year, first-look production deal with Samuel L. Jackson. Jackson and his still-untitled company will set up offices in Los Angeles. He is searching for an executive to run the shingle and is expected to hire staff soon. New Line approached Jackson after the success of the actor's Snakes on a Plane. The film was an Internet phenomenon, and while the movie's boxoffice didn't match the online hype, it did respectable business, grossing $33.5 million to date. The company liked Jackson's eye for commercial material as well as how his resume is filled with movies ranging from popcorn fare to genre films to more serious subjects. The movies Jackson produces will be a mix of starring vehicles and ones that his company develops. Sources say he will be very hands-on with material. »

'D.O.A.P.' shoots for Us release

13 September 2006 | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

- Quick Links > D.O.A.P > Newmarket Films > Toronto film festival Death of a President (D.O.A.P.), the UK TV movie that became one of the most controversial and buzzed-about films at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, has been snapped up by Newmarket Films for release in the Us. The mockumentary, which spawned hundreds of headlines even before its screening (like Snakes On A Plane, or S.O.A.P, oddly enough), recreates and reexamines the assassination of current President George W. Bush by a Syrian sniper in Chicago. Newmarket, amongst whose other releases are Lukas Moodysson's Lilya 4Eva, Whale Rider, and Christopher Nolan's Memento and upcoming The Prestige, is evidently not worried about the impending foot-stomping, boycotting, and loud voices that Conservative America will no doubt expound at selected theatres when this film is actually released. Gabriel Range, the director of D.O. »

Police Refute Rumors of Snake Cinema Scare

24 August 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Phoenix, Arizona police have denied reports live rattlesnakes were released in a cinema during a screening of Snakes On A Plane, insisting the claims are a hoax. Local news reports on Tuesday said cinema-goers were terrified when two live venomous rattlesnakes were released at a showing of the Samuel L. Jackson film last Friday. Phoenix police sergeant Joel Tranter admits there is a shred of truth to the story - a 10-inch rattlesnake was found on Friday in a hallway at the movie theatre, but is thought to have slithered there on its own. A security guard swept the snake up outside and trapped it in a plastic container until a member of the Arizona Herpetological Association could haul it away. Snake handlers had also been called to the theatre earlier in the day to retrieve another rattlesnake from outside. »

Life Imitates Art at 'Snakes' Screening

23 August 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

New Samuel L Jackson film Snakes On A Plane became terrifyingly real for Arizona cinema-goers when pranksters released two live rattlesnakes into the theatre, causing widespread panic. The two young venomous diamondback rattlers were released during a screening in Phoenix on Friday. Local news reports say the snakes caused chaos among the audience and snake wranglers were called in to collect them. No one was injured during the incident and the culprits have not been caught. Officials believe the snakes were smuggled into the theatre in backpacks. According to Phoenix Herpetological Society spokesman Daniel Marchand, "All they've got to do is startle this thing. It's dark. They can't see you that well. If it's scared - boom - it strikes!" The snakes were eventually captured and released into the Arizona desert. Road to the Oscars[/link]. »

Little venom in 'Snakes,' 'Talladega' finishes in 2nd

22 August 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The Internet buzz surrounding New Line Cinema's Snakes on a Plane didn't translate to much bite at the boxoffice. The massive hype surrounding the R-rated horror film only managed to scare up $15.2 million at the North American boxoffice. Snakes beat out reigning champ Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby by a mere $1.45 million for the top spot. If Snakes' $1.4 million for its 10 p.m. and midnight shows was not counted into the weekend's gross, the Samuel L. Jackson starrer would have maintained the top spot by only $500,000. Other newcomers, Accepted from Universal Pictures and MGM's Material Girls, didn't do much business either. Accepted, the PG-13-rated teen comedy starring Justin Long, earned $10 million, while the Hilary Duff starrer Girls grossed a weak $4.6 million. »

'Snakes' all buzz, no bite

22 August 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Fans might have laughed at the title, cheered the casting of Samuel L. Jackson and even created homages to it on the Internet, but they didn't show up to theaters in significant numbers during the weekend. The much buzzed-about Snakes on a Plane, from New Line Cinema, performed well below its extremely hyped expectations, earning $15.2 million for its three-day opener. It managed to eke out the top spot at the North American boxoffice over Sony Pictures' Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby but only because it included in its weekend total $1.4 million from its 10 p.m. Thursday showings. »

Nonstop 'Pirates' rolling along

21 August 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Though the overall overseas boxoffice is starting to fall off as the summer season fades, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest -- lacking any competition from new breakout product -- kept up a blistering holdover pace as it dominated the international market for the seventh week in a row. At the same time, some of the early summer tentpoles that avoided World Cup rivalry in the June-July period are picking up business from unplayed key territories, while new medium-range entries are getting mixed welcomes in markets known for audiences with a weekly moviegoing habit. Pleasant outdoor weather, especially in Europe, contributed to a general boxoffice decline. New Line's Snakes on a Plane, in a day-and-date opening with the U.S., hit the top in the U.K. with $2 million from 354 screens and brought in a total of $2.6 million from dates that included Israel, Iceland, Thailand, Venezuela and Puerto Rico. But Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby did not fare as well after its North American bow, entering Spain in the No. 6 spot with a disappointing $315,000 from 250, a showing attributed to the 18 rating the Will Ferrell film received from local censors. »

Margulies Amused by 'Snakes' Film Release Concern

21 August 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Julianna Margulies mocked movie executives when they suggested moving the release date of new thriller Snakes On A Plane back because of the recent terror threats. The former ER star, who plays an air stewardess in the new mile-high film, admits she thought the marketing plan was "hilarious" because movie bosses actually feared film fans would stay away from the cinema this weekend because of terrorist fears. She says, "It's called Snakes On A Plane; this isn't a movie about flying. They couldn't be further wrong. This isn't a terrorist movie. Why would we pull the movie? Because it has airplanes in it? I was like, 'You're not gonna get on a plane because you're worried a snake is gonna come up and bite you? You could be afraid of other things.'" »

The much buzzed-about Snakes on a Plane, from New Line Cinema, performed well below its extremely hyped expectations, earning an estimated $15.3 million for its three-day opener. It managed to eke out the top spot at the North American boxoffice over Sony Pictures' Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, but only because it included in its weekend total $1.4 million from its 10 p.m. Thursday showings. Other newcomers were equally unimpressive, with Universal Pictures' Accepted grossing an estimated $10.1 million to place fourth, and MGM's Hilary Duff starrer Material Girls generating an estimated $4.6 million for a ninth-place finish. »

'Snakes' flying all over the radar

19 August 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Hollywood is dealing moviegoers a wild card this weekend. Industry experts are all over the map as to how well, or not so well, New Line Cinema's Internet phenomenon Snakes on a Plane will do at the domestic boxoffice. Ever since the Internet digerati took hold of the title of the film, buzz has been unlike anything the Internet has seen, especially for a nonsequel. And since Samuel L. Jackson came aboard, the buzz has climbed to a fever pitch. But that all began months ago, and there have been no early screenings for the film. The Hollywood premiere was set for 9 p.m. Thursday -- too late for most reviewers to file before the film bows today, though most everyone recognizes that reviews matter little for this film that fans hope will be so bad that it's good. »
