We have a ridiculously fun clip for you from the upcoming biblical thriller Left Behind starring Nicolas Cage, but before we get to the goofy stuff, some background. You probably remember former teen heartthrob Kirk Cameron from his days as Mike Seaver on the sitcom Growing Pains. Well, Cameron grew up, became a devout evangelical Christian, and has been making movies about the big guy upstairs ever since. His post-Rapture series Left Behind is equal parts comedy gold and frightening fairy tale. And now, famous stunt double and Hollywood badass Vic Armstrong is directing a remake of Cameron’s movie (we forgive you, Vic), starring none other than Nicolas Cage.
Coming Soon shared a 44-second preview of the film, and it’s amazing. The excerpt contains several epic quotables ("But hey, if she's gonna run off with another man, why not Jesus?”) and all the simmering Cage weirdness you could ever ask for. At one point he takes a mighty Tony Montana-face-down-in-a-mountain-of-cocaine-style sniff, which we believe is meant to convey his latent rage over his wife leaving him for Jesus Christ. Oh that Cage, always giving us the hard sell.
There’s no official release date for Left Behind just yet, but you can bet we’ll be waiting with bated breath for its announcement.
