12 Famous Movies That Were Almost Given Absurdly Bad Titles
9. “Pacific Air Flight 121″ – Snakes on a Plane
There was one reason and one reason alone why Samuel L. Jackson agreed to star in Snakes on a Plane, and that’s because he saw that there was a movie about to be made called Snakes on a Plane, and why wouldn’t you want to be a part of that if you were given the opportunity? When the studio got nervous about the fact that they were making a movie with that title, though, they changed it to the horrifically bland “Pacific Air Flight 121,” until Sam Jackson threatened to leave if they didn’t change it back. So they did. Because Samuel L. Jackson, motherf*cker.
