It’s been a slow news week so I thought this was interesting/funny. So I don’t know if you guys remember back when Snakes on A Plane came out, or was about to come out, a company made a low-budget movie called Snakes on A Train and released it on DVD the tuesday before Snakes on A Plane came out in theaters. They obviously were just trying to steal some of the buzz from the “Plane” version and hopefully get some curious people to pick up their flick. It must have done fairly well because now the same company is putting out a movie similar to our beloved “Cloverfield/1-18-08/Untitled”. The company is called The Asylum and they are also releasing movies similar to I Am Legend and Alien vs. Predator, titled, I Am Omega and Alien vs. Hunter, very creative guys… anyways, check out the synopsis and poster for “Tokyo” below.

Thanks to Rachel.Nevada in the forums for posting about this a few weeks ago.

Here is the synopsis for the movie.

    has anyone checked out the credibility of this company?

    maybe order one of their other movies….

    they seem too fake. and the have had dealing with paramount in the past. it seems like they could be trying to mislead us and put hints right in front of our eyes.

    It is definitely a real company. They put out Snakes on A Train last year, which you can find at blockbuster or any rental place. I’m pretty sure there are no hints about the actual movie hidden within this knock-off and whatever the movie portrays isn’t insider information, just them taking what we already know and slapping together a movie to ride the wave.

    Ah good to see somethings never change. Asylum is always making cheap movies that close to what ever big name movie is coming out. They did it with Transformers, Exorcisim of Emily Rose, War of the Worlds, ETC.
