I confess, I'll probably VOD this at some point, just for a good laugh.

I actually reviewed the ORIGINAL Left Behind film, and didn't think it was all that horrible - although it did feel like a made-for-TV movie.

Hmm, first read the thread title as Nic Cage in a My Left Foot reboot and thought "That is a movie I would pay to see"

This is currently at 3% on RT which is 3% higher than I thought it would get.

The consensus at the top is hilarious.

It might work.

A couple of months ago I started chain smoking, put on white clothes, and stopped talking.

Re: Oh rapture! Left Behind (2014) S: Nic Cage

Probably because of who he is and his family. After this fiasco he might have to take a pay cut. Could be for the better or could be for the worse.

He is prolific. He works with a lot of new and/or low budget companies. Having a star like Cage attached can fetch a reasonable investment. Not Tom Cruise investments. But there's a system for making a low budget film profitable.

This made like $6.5m this weekend. That's about $6.3m more than I expected.

Does that mean we can expect Nic Cage to play a cross-dressing pirate sometime soon?

Re: Oh rapture! Left Behind (2014) S: Nic Cage

The Makers of ‘Left Behind’ Are Crowdingfunding a Sequel. Prepare Yourselves

Your dream of being a in a Left Behind movie may soon become a reality. The makers of Nicolas Cage’s Left Behind reboot, which opened to a 2% Rotten Tomatoes rating when it released last fall, are attempting to raise $500,000 to make a sequel. Just for context, last year’s Cage version cost $16 million. Sure, the budget constraints may leave you with some doubts about the quality of the action epic, which depicts a very literal version of the book of Revelation, but just listen to these perks. For $200 you can “Be one of the ‘raptured’ by having your image featured on the ‘Missing Persons’ wall in a special, limited edition Left Behind 2 movie poster!” For $500 you can have your name listed in the credits. For $750 you can “be included on a wall in the background of the film as one of the raptured missing persons.” For $2,500, you can be an extra.

Sadly, yet totally unsurprisingly, the $7,500 level—which lets you get an actual speaking role in the film—is sold out. On the Inidegogo page, the film’s producer said, “There is a lot of story to tell. And ultimately, until my last breath or until the Lord returns, I will be pushing to bring the entire story of the end-time prophecies to the big screen.” Considering the first film cover just the first few pages of the 16-volume novel series, we may be looking at A LOT more Left Behind in the coming decades ...

It's up to us to make this happen, people!

Yeah, but who's going to replace Nic Cage in the sequel, since he's not going to work for free? I'm betting about $3 million of that $16 million budget for the first one was "Nic Cage money".

So after one (relatively) big budget version, the series is returning to it's "made for couch cushion change" roots?

Didn't the Duck Dynasty guys love the last one? Have them pay for the sequel.
