We may not be living in the End Times, but we are certainly living in strange times. Nicolas Cage starring in a remake of a Kirk Cameron movie? The power of Cage compels you to feast your eyes upon the official trailer and new poster for the Rapture reboot Left Behind.
A while back we got to see the first footage from the remake of Left Behind featuring Cage uttering something along the lines of “If my wife had to leave me for another man, it might as well be Jesus.” Keep in mind the film is not meant to be a comedy.
No. This Left Behind is from the same people responsible for the Kirk Cameron series, but this time they’re aiming for more secular viewers by making the film a bit less preachy and a bit more disaster-y. One look at the trailer, and yes, indeed, “disaster” comes to mind.
The trailer still has nothing on the Photoshop disaster that is the official poster. Who in their right mind approved that? The expression on Cage’s face! As if he’s staring back at the viewer agreeing that he has no clue what the hell he’s doing in this movie either.
Stuntman-director Vic Armstrong helms the reboot that co-stars Chad Michael Murray, Jordin Sparks, and Nicky Whelan amongst those left behind when God raptures all the good and righteous Christians up to heaven, leaving every airplane in the air at the time ready to come crashing down to earth like so many fallen angels.
The trailer swears Left Behind will be in theaters on October 3rd despite looking even more direct-to-video than The Omega Code movies.
Hey, maybe they can remake those films next also starring Nic Cage but as more of a National Treasure by way of the Bible Code. Yep, I definitely smell the “In God We Trust” all over the money those films will mint.
