Next Screening? Gerard Butler finds landing the “Plane” to be just the beginning of his troubles

This thriller, opening Friday, looks better than we took it to be on first blush.

I mean, the lack of effort on the title isn’t encouraging.

Unless…it’s a PUN. Get that “Plane” on a plane and let it ride the waves like a catamaran.

A fugitive in custody on board, hijackers, a million islands to get lost in in the area around the Philippines.

Interesting set of screenplay problems to solve.
