Everyone's expression in that second poster pretty much sums up my feeling for this movie.

I have no photoshop experience. I wonder if I can get a gig designing movie posters?

This could be the best unintentional parody since Vampire Academy.

This is why you always pay your taxes. The poor go to jail, the middle class get their wages garnished and the rich have to make Left Behind movies.

I'm assuming somewhere along the line Ashley Tisdale realized this wasn't a good career move and backed out.

I'd like to see her in not much.

I'll watch it in theaters. It's either going to be dull and forgettable or Nic Cage goodness.

Just because it's some kind of joke doesn't mean it isn't an official poster.

‘Duck Dynasty’ star urges Christians to convert atheist friends with Nicolas Cage movie

One of the stars of TV’s “Duck Dynasty” urged Christians to take their non-believing friends to see an upcoming Nicolas Cage movie, saying it might convert them.

Willie Robertson recorded a short promotional video that was posted Friday morning to the Facebook page set up for “Left Behind,” an upcoming feature film based on the popular religion-themed book series that depicts the end times.

“Like most Christians, my family and I can truly say that we’re excited about the soon return of Jesus, and I’m sure, if you’ve been watching the news lately, you know that that return could be any day from now,” Robertson said.

He said the film, which he described as “an action-packed thriller that will take viewers on a wild ride to the day of the Rapture,” would encourage atheists and non-Christians to convert.

“It’s a warning to those, if it happened today, would be left behind, and I believe people are going to make that life-changing decision to follow Christ on the way home from the theater on Oct. 3,” Robertson said. “Let’s all make sure we bring some friends and family to see this movie – people who need to see to believe.”

He then directed viewers to the film’s website, where he said they could find information on buying group tickets or purchasing merchandise such as “cool clothes.”

The movie is a remake of the 2002 version starring former “Growing Pains” sitcom star Kirk Cameron.

Some conservative Christians complained about the casting of Cage, suspicious that he might be a non-believer – although “there is speculation that he is a Roman Catholic.”

^It still blows my mind that so many adults today believe in such silliness.

I've always said, it's going to be a Nicolas Cage movie that saves humanity. You all thought I was crazy!

Though I was a little off on my prediction. I was positive it was Bangkok Dangerous that was going to do it...

Couldn't they use a good movie about Christianity to win converts, like Ben Hur or something?

It's more likely that they'll be filing for divorce after seeing David Fincher's GONE GIRL.

Sadly, the last good movie about Christianity was directed by a Jew-hating bigot.

I didn't know that Martin Scorsese was an anti-semite.

"This Left Behind may be worse than the last Left Behind, but it's much less boring, thanks in part to the commitment of its star, who plays the often ludicrous material with the straightest of faces. The Cage works in mysterious ways." - AV Club

"This movie is the worst. And the best. I haven't laughed like that in a theater in a long, long time, and not one of those laughs was earned on purpose." - RedEye

Actually the best Rapture movie I've ever seen is "The Rapture" with Mimi Rogers. Great flick. As an Atheist, I enjoy "edgy" types of religious movies.

I liked Rapture-palooza, but then I have a crush on Anna Kendrick. Was it stupid? Yes, was it terrible? Possibly.
