Nicolas Cage is right in front of Left Behind trailer

05.30.2014by:

If Kirk Cameron wasn't presence enough to get your rapture fix cranked up to 11, then you're in luck! The LEFT BEHIND saga is taking a cue from AMAZING SPIDER-MAN and rebooting its series with a lead that's more popular with the teenage girls these days; Nicolas Cage. Now a trailer is here so you can see how many explosions they're bringing to the table.

For those unfamiliar, here's the plot:

A small group of survivors are left behind after millions of people suddenly vanish and the world is plunged into chaos and destruction.

Jokes aside, this looks like something that should be relegated to the straight to DVD/Blu-ray category. Obviously there's a recognizable lead or two (hey Lea Thompson!) but given that there aren't a lot of religious films hitting the silver screen, I'm under the impression they make decent bank due to a lot of church organizations taking trips to theaters to see said films. While I don't think this movie is going to make PASSION OF THE CHRIST numbers, I'm sure it'll earn it's money back. Plus, we get a hilarious poster where it looks like Nicolas Cage's head has been shrunken (below for your viewing pleasure).

LEFT BEHIND, starring Nicolas Cage, Chad Michael Murray, Lea Thompson, and Nicky Whelan, will be left in theaters on October 3, 2014.

I've read the books and they were good, but I'm not so sure about this. The trailer did look way better than the other movie that was made. I guess we will see.

"...but given that there aren't a lot of religious films hitting the silver screen..."

This is sarcasm, right?

In 2014 so far there's been Son of God, Noah, God's Not Dead, that other film just like God's Not Dead but with Harry Anderson, Heaven is for Real, Mom's Night Out, and more coming out later this year. [link]

ROFL

So the rapture causes flame out in a jet airliner that has a perfectly good pilot on board.
Not to harp on the religious angle but why would a Christian want to go see a movie about the sinners left behind after the Rapture, unless just to gloat and feel superior.

"unless just to gloat and feel superior."

You just answered your own question.

a proper movie about the rapture is supposed to be used as a tool to witness to non believers of God. It shouldn't be used to gloat about anything. That is not the point of Christianity. I haven't seen the movie yet, but I hope it's not used to gloat about anything.

With a cast that includes Jordin Sparks and Chad Michael Murray, you know this is going to be great.

Big head, small brain !!! :-)

You don't have to watch the movie... Just see Cage's head on the poster and u'll understand what's being cooked in here. The poster tells us what kind of people worked on this movie. They needed a star and Nic. needed a paycheck... why not... a call to his agent and a done deal !
- Now I can't understand why Nic keeps embarrassing himself... He makes one quality movie and then goes and makes five awful ones. Bad Lt. & Joe were his best work since 2007... and during this time he made 17 movies

Bad Lt. & Joe were his best work since 2007... and during this time he made 17 movies in total, including seven terrible ones (Ghost R.,Season of Witch, Dr, Angry, Trespass, G.R. Spirit of V.; Stolen and recently Tokarev. Great job Cage, hope your agent gets eaten by piranhas.

I just want to see the scene where he gets raptured and only his wig is left behind.

This looks terrible, but the poster is hilarious considering how small Cage's head is compared to his body.

I just don't understand why Cage can't do more quality films like 'Joe'. He shows signs of brilliance and actually giving a shit, but then does garbage like this. I want to see this man pull a Downey Jr and a McConaughey already.

Hahahaha, ur right, that's what I thought when I saw the poster myself. The poster looks extremely ridiculous and the trailer looks even more ridicule...
- Now I'll tell you why Nic Cage won't commit to projects like "Joe", which I have to mention myself that it was one of the best work that he did on his entire carrier and the last time we saw him pull something like that it was when he did a movie with Master Herzog (B.L - PoC. N.O.). This is easy money for him, he gets a paycheck for doing

N.O.). This is easy money for him, he gets a paycheck for doing the same thing in a lot of different awful movies, that frankly aren't that qualitative, considering who writes and who directs 'em. The dude owned IRS some money back on 2008-09 I think, and he's been covering his sh*t for sometimes now... He began to get lazy same as Kilmer did on early 00's... but a few projects kept him on the map of living. I'm talking movies like Bad Lt., Joe and in some level Kick-Ass. He got another movie like Left Behind already wrapped and I have my hopes on the one that he's doing with Paul Schrader. Well done mr. Cage, I hope you're agent gets hit by lightning ! :-)

Just when I had hopes of Nic Cage reviving his career this finally crushes them.

The Cage is dead to me.

Seriously, c'mon Cage! 'Joe' was a great movie and thought he'd get his shit together but the poster for this garbage says it all. 'Have you seen my career?'

Doesn't look any better than the shelves of DTV versions at Block Buster back in the day.

I know Jedd. I wish he had latched onto an original script to sink his teeth into. Hopefully he directs another feature if this goose lays an egg.

This is a joke, right? Somebody tell me this is a spoof trailer that some prankster cut together from footage of various terrible movies. There's no way this is getting a theatrical release, right?

I almost feel sorry for whoever said "right, so the Left Behind movies with Kirk Cameron were a joke. We're going to put some effort behind it and make a blockbuster that people will take seriously. Yes, Nicolas Cage in the lead! Great idea."
