There is no escaping the venomous bite of Snakes on a Plane as the yea’s pop culture phenomenon creeps onto DVD January 2, 2007, from New Line Home Entertainment.

Ellis (Final Destination 2, Cellular), this edge-of-your-seat action-thriller also stars Julianna Margulies (TV’s ER, HBO’s The Sopranos), Kenan Thompson (Saturday Night Live, Fat Albert) and Rachel Blanchard (Without a Paddle, Road Trip).

When an unsuspecting bystander witnesses a brutal mob murder, it falls to FBI agent Neville Flynn (Jackson) to escort his charge safely from Hawaii to Los Angeles to testify. But in an act of self-preservation, the crime boss in question smuggles hundreds of poisonous snakes onto the commercial aircraft in a crate, timed to release its deadly cargo halfway over the Pacific Ocean. Flynn, along with a frightened flight crew and passengers, must band together in a desperate attempt to survive the “flight of their lives.”
