Nicolas Cage is Stuck on a Plane in Theatrical Trailer for 'Left Behind'
"He took the to protect them from the darkest time in the history of this world." After cautioning against the first trailer for the new adaptation of the religious, rapture-centric book Left Behind starring Nicolas Cage, we can't help but do the same with the full theatrical trailer that has just been released. With melodrama heightened by the use of Civil Twilight's song "Letters from the Sky," this attempts to pull at the heartstrings, but still feels like nothing more than a TV movie from the 90s. Lea Thompson and Chad Michael Murray don't add anything to the proceedings, but we really didn't expect them to at all. Watch?
Here's the new trailer for Vic Armstrong's Left Behind, originally from Yahoo:
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.
