If seeing is believing then the teaser poster released by Stoney Lake Entertainment for its “Left Behind” movie reboot should settle once and for all any doubts about actor Nicolas Cage taking on the role Kirk Cameron made popular in the Christian film based on the 16-part book series by Tim Lahaye and Jerry B. Jenkins.
The movie poster, shared with The Christian Post by Stoney Lake Entertainment, the newly-founded production company behind the film, shows Cage dressed in a ragged suit and torn tie. Behind Cage, in the distance stands a downed passenger plane, its nose buried in debris and flames. Farther back is a cityscape, overshadowed by dark clouds and billows of smoke. It’s difficult to tell for sure, but the poster shows Cage either standing on sand, or walking on water.
Unlike the first Left Behind book, released in 1995 by Tyndale House Publishers, and its 2001 movie version, this adaptation begins hours after the rapture, or the spiriting away of Christians from Earth to heaven. “It will not cover everything that the first book includes, but will be more specifically concentrated on those first few hours and the chaos of the world in the wake of millions of people vanishing with no explanation,” according to the official website for the film, scheduled for a 2014 release.
