Anna Kendrick & Craig Robinson in Red Band 'Rapturepalooza' Trailer
The Rapture is a Biblical prophesy in which Jesus Christ returns to Earth to take all of His followers into heaven, leaving unbelievers behind in an apocalyptic wasteland as the Antichrist tries to take over the world. It's been featured in a few films already, most famously the Left Behind series (which is getting a reboot starring Nicolas Cage), but now it looks like the religious event is going to be fodder for a comedy, as a red band trailer for Rapturepalooza has surfaced online, starring Anna Kendrick, John Francis Daley, and Craig Robinson as the Antichrist. It looks like the worst end of days comedy coming this year. Watch?
Here's the red band trailer for Raturepalooza, courtesy of IGN:
Rapturepalooza is directed by Paul Middleditch (Separation City) and written by Chris Matheson (Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure). The story follows a young couple (Anna Kendrick of Up in the Air and John Francis Daley of "Bones") who experience the Rapture, meet the Antichrist (Craig Robinson), and seek to destroy him. The film also features comedians like Rob Corddry, Ken Jeong, Ana Gasteyer, Rob Huebel, Paul Scheer, Jesse Camacho and more. Lionsgate releases the film in theaters sometime in 2013. Funny?
