Christians and non-believers alike will gain a new perspective on the Rapture after watching Sony/Affirm Film's "The Remaining."
In theaters everywhere this Friday, Sept. 5, the Casey La Scala-directed film stars Alexa PenaVega, formerly of "SpyKids," as well as "The Vampire Diaries" star Johnny Pacar and Shaun Sipos, among others. Since the horror film is also a Christian one, "The Remaining" is the first of its kind and offers something for every moviegoer. Horror films appeal to universal audiences of thrill-seekers, but "The Remaining" adds a special element by incorporating a colorful translation of Revelation 8-9.
From the start, the film depicts an alarmingly realistic scenario that involves a group of five friends celebrating a wedding when apocalyptic events leave them scrambling for safety. After the skies darken, those with faith are taken to Heaven while non-believers are left on Earth as boulder-sized hail falls, locusts swarm, and fallen angels attack. After finding shelter, the group is forced to make up their own minds about their faith, and ultimately, their fate. more >>
Evangelist Greg Laurie, who knew World War II hero Louis Zamperini well through public interviews and time spent together privately before he died on July 2, said he was disappointed to hear that the film based on his life as adapted from the book Unbroken, will not include the story of his faith in Jesus Christ.
The Universal Pictures film, directed by Angelina Jolie, is scheduled for release on Christmas Day. However, word has already gotten out that Zamperini's spiritual journey is absent from the film adaption of Laura Hillenbrand's book, Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption.
"I'm disappointed that director Angelina Jolie has chosen to leave this vital and essential part of Louis Zamperini's life out of this much anticipated film," Laurie, who is perhaps best known for leading the Harvest crusades, told The Christian Post recently. "To me, the most amazing part of his story is not just surviving the incomprehensible beatings in the Japanese internment camp, or being adrift at sea for over 47 days. It was the fact that Louis was able, because of his conversion and newfound Christian faith, to go back to Japan to the very guards who mistreated him and forgive them, as well as tell them about Jesus Christ." more >>
