I’m reasonably certain if this whole rapture thing is real and it comes for us, I’ll be stuck on planet Earth. Which is not an entirely bad thing, if you really think about it. I mean, less people means more space and opportunities for me to do, you know, stuff, right? (See, I’m a glass half full kinda guy. So sue me.)
Anyhoos. Check out the latest trailer and two handfuls of new images for Nicolas Cage’s “Left Behind.” So does Cage’s character spend most of the movie stuck on a plane? It sure looks that way. Of course, the idea here is to launch a new franchise. If I recall, the anti-Christ shows up in later installments. Fun times!
LEFT BEHIND follows Rayford Steele (Nicolas Cage) who is piloting a commercial airliner just hours after the Rapture when millions of people around the globe simply vanish. Thirty thousand feet over the Atlantic, Rayford is faced with a damaged plane, terrified passengers, and a desperate desire to get back to his family. On the ground, his daughter, Chloe Steele (Cassi Thomson) is among those left behind, forced to navigate a world of madness as she searches for her lost mother and brother. Shot mostly in and around Baton Rouge, LA., LEFT BEHIND was produced by Paul Lalonde and Michael Walker and co-written by Paul Lalonde and John Patus.
Starring Nicolas Cage, Chad Michael Murray, Cassi Thomson, Nicky Whelan, Jordin Sparks and Lea Thompson.
The end comes October 3rd.
