If the name of the film sounds vaguely familiar, you might remember Left Behind as a 16-part straight-to-DVD series that starred none other than Kirk Cameron. Also germane is the fact that it was a VERY Christian film about the rapture. Rapture entertainment is incredibly hot right now.
The new, more theatrical, Nic Cage-starring version is also VERY Christian, considering it’s got the same source material, but it’s a little less heavy-handed with the pro-Christian messaging. And the production values are much higher, which makes it seem like less of a Christianity promo film. And it’s got Nicolas Cage, who has been in a battle with the spirit of Jesus Christ in a holy war for humankind for 2,000 years. That last bit is just a theory I’m working on. It’s up to Cage to disprove it.
Here’s the trailer. Hope you like it. When choosing a savior, the producers of the film strongly suggest you check the box marked “Jesus.”
