Nicolas Cage Channels His Inner Kirk Cameron in the First Clip from the Left Behind Reboot
If hearing Nicolas Cage mutter the line “If she’s gonna run off with another man, why not Jesus, huh?” doesn’t make you look to the heavens and thank the Lord for the bountiful b-movie harvest we are about receive, then nothing will ever make you a believer.
The original Kirk Cameron-starring Left Behind films were the height of “Rapture porn” more interested in preaching to the choir than reaching out to the unwashed masses.
The forthcoming $15 million reboot starring Nicolas Cage, Ashley Tisdale, Chad Michael Murray, Nicky Whelan, Lea Thompson, and Jordin Sparks, according to producer Paul LaLonde, aims to be more mainstream in its sensibilities by weaving End Times “Rapture porn” with traditional disaster movie tropes.
An airborne 747 is heading to London when, without any warning, passengers mysteriously disappear from their seats. Terror and chaos spread not only through the plane but also worldwide as unusual events continue to unfold. For those who have been left behind, the apocalypse has just begun.
It's been a long time since there’s been anything to report about the reboot of the popular Christian franchise – until today, when the first new Left Behind clip surfaced via Coming Soon. If this is a sign of things to come, then we’re in for some classic Caginess. LaLonde specifies that the music is temporary and the image has not been color corrected. He fails to explain why he felt this was a good clip to sell the general public on.
