Humorous Aspects from The Passion of The Christ

I arrived at the theater about a half an hour early. I became confused as to the exact time of the showing. So as I stood in the cold, some amusing thoughts, they amused me at least, crossed my mind.

Would they show trailers for other movies before hand? They actually did. The theater in Alva showed the trailers for SpiderMan 2, Shrek 2, Madison (a new movie with Jim Caviezel [I guess his career isn't over yet], The Day After tomorrow (a very promising sci-fi disaster flick) and Home on the Range (an animated feature about adventurous cattle featuring the voice of Roseanne [No, it is not an E! True Hollywood Story of her life]). The last one seemed especially cruel given it was a Friday in Lent. Talk about temptation.

Now normally the studios tailor or target trailers and features to saturate the same audience. Looking at the five trailers, can anyone figure out to whom the studios were directing these particular films?

The other funny things was the line for concessions. In Alva, the only movie showing at 9:30 p.m. on Friday was The Passion. I couldn't figure out for the life of me why they were getting snacks. What did they think they were getting ready to watch?! The snacks were soon abandoned...pretty much from the moment the film started.
