If you're a fan of overly religious films, but have been disappointed at the caliber of talent involved, then you're going to have to keep looking. Not even Nicolas Cage can make this new adaptation of Left Behind seem interesting. This looks like the kind of movie we'll be making fun of for years to come, with a complete lack of subtlety, overwrought dialogue, and pretty much every cliche in the book, this story of the Rapture just looks abysmal. And this is just a teaser trailer. We're not sure if we can endure a full length theatrical trailer. Are we sure Cage isn't playing some massive prank of all of us? It would be a really good one. Watch?
Here's the teaser trailer for Vic Armstrong's Left Behind from YouTube:
And here's the terribly photoshopped poster for Left Behind from IMP Awards:
Left Behind is directed by Vic Armstrong and written by Jerry B. Jenkins, based on Tim LaHaye's novel of the same name. Without warning, millions of people around the globe simply vanish. The vanishings cause unmanned vehicles to crash and burn. Emergency forces everywhere are devastated. Gridlock, riots and looting overrun the cities. And there is no one to help or provide answers. The earth has been plunged into darkness. For Ray Steele (Nicolas Cage), the pilot of a jumbo jet, it means trying to calm hysterical passengers and trying to land his damaged plane when airports are jammed with burning wrecks. Lea Thompson & Chad Michael Murray also star in the film Samuel Goldwyn Films releases on October 3rd.
