Cloud Ten Pictures today confirmed a distribution agreement for wide theatrical release of the film LEFT BEHIND 2 once production has been completed.

To ensure a summer 2016 release, Cloud Ten Pictures has announced an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds to quickly begin pre-production of the film.

Film based on New York Times bestselling “Left Behind” book series, co-authored by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, with more than 65 million copies sold becoming one of the best-selling fiction series of all time.

April 7, 2015 – Cloud Ten Pictures announces that the second film in the Left Behind series has been green-lighted for wide theatrical distribution. The date of release is dependent on when the film can be completed. In order to enter the pre-production phase as soon as possible and ensure that the film is released next summer, Cloud Ten Pictures has initiated an Indiegogo campaign.
“We are living in the last days and if the Rapture were to happen today, there are a lot of people who just aren’t ready,” says Paul Lalonde, LEFT BEHIND producerand CEO of Cloud Ten Pictures. “This is why we need to complete the story as soon as possible beginning with LEFT BEHIND 2. But, if we want to keep control of our story, we will once again have to fund the movie independently. We have all seen what happens to Christian, Bible-based stories when the Hollywood studios take control. They change the fundamental meaning of God’s Word and make a mockery of the Christian faith. With the help of campaign supporters we won’t let that happen to
LEFT BEHIND 2.

 

LEFT BEHIND 2 picks up where the first movie left off after the day of the Rapture and will closely follow the first book in the New York Times bestselling series. Based on the Bible and published in 32 different languages, the book series, co-authored by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, has sold more than 65 million copies and is one of the best-selling fiction series of all time.

CONTROVERSIAL FILM OPENS AS #3 NEW RELEASE IN WEEKEND
BOX OFFICE BEHIND BLOCKBUSTER STUDIO RELEASES GONE GIRL AND ANNABELLE.
Left Behind, Based on Best-Selling Book Series by Tim LaHaye and
Jerry B. Jenkins Draws Faithful Fans & New Believers to Fill Theaters
 

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (October 6, 2014) – Left Behind, which opened on October 3 on 1,790 screens across the United States and 35 in Canada, garnered strong box office from moviegoers this past weekend commanding $6.3 million ($3,452 per screen average) in receipts. Although questioned by critics, audiences turned the other cheek and flocked to theatres to watch Nicolas Cage lead a cast through the story of the Rapture that brings Biblical prophecy to life in modern times. www.leftbehindmovie.com

 

Producer and co-writer Paul Lalonde commented, “We are pleased with the response the film has had from moviegoers across North America. With a marketing budget less than one tenth of what the studios spend on the movies we’re competing with, we had focused our marketing efforts toward our core Christian audience.  We had a strong social presence and knew awareness in the core demo was strong. Our goal was to enlist those fans to spread the word and to bring friends and family who weren’t necessarily believers. I have to give thanks to director Vic Armstrong, star Nicolas Cage and the rest of the cast and team that brought it all together so well. But most of all, I want to thank the fans for supporting this movie, and all faith based movies, by actually buying tickets and going to the theater.”

 

Freestyle Releasing’s Co-President Mark Borde stated, “We were bullish on this film from the very beginning. Originally slated for a 1,200 screen run In the U.S., we bumped it up to 1,790 theaters due to the pre-release demand. We are very pleased with these results in light of being up against five films, each in more than 3,000 theaters with far larger marketing budgets.”

 

Left Behind is based on the New York Times bestselling book series of the same name, co-authored by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. Based on the Bible and published in 32 different languages, the series has sold more than 63 million copies and is one of the best-selling fiction series of all time.  The film follows Rayford Steele (Nicolas Cage) who is piloting a commercial airliner just hours after the Rapture when millions of people in the plane and around the globe suddenly vanish. Thirty thousand feet over the Atlantic, Rayford is faced with a damaged plane, terrified passengers, and a desperate desire to get back to his family. On the ground, his daughter, Chloe Steele (Cassi Thomson) is among those left behind, forced to navigate a world of madness as she searches for her lost mother and brother. Left Behind was produced by Paul Lalonde, Michael Walker and Ed Clydesdale and co-written by Paul Lalonde and John Patus.

Highly anticipated motion picture to release on 1800 screens through Stoney Lake Entertainment

Movie based on New York Times bestselling “Left Behind” book series, co-authored by Jerry B. Jenkins and Tim LaHaye is based on the Bible and published in 32 different languages, with more than 65 million copies sold and one of the best-selling fiction series of all time
(LOS ANGELES, Calif.) March 28, 2014 – Among the most highly anticipated films to be released in 2014, Stoney Lake Entertainment announces the full-length action-adventure motion picture LEFT BEHIND. The movie stars Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage (NATIONAL TREASURE, CITY OF ANGELS, THE CROODS) as Rayford Steele, as well as Chad Michael Murray, Cassi Thomson, Nicky Whelan, Lea Thompson and Jordin Sparks. The movie is directed by veteran filmmaker, Vic Armstrong (THOR, AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, WAR OF THE WORLDS), widely renowned for directing action sequences. LEFT BEHIND is produced and distributed by Stoney Lake Entertainment, with the national release slated for October 3, 2014.

LEFT BEHIND follows Rayford Steele (Nicolas Cage) who is piloting a commercial airliner just hours after the Rapture when millions of people around the globe simply vanish. Thirty thousand feet over the Atlantic, Rayford is faced with a damaged plane, terrified passengers, and a desperate desire to get back to his family. On the ground, his daughter, Chloe Steele (Cassi Thomson) is among those left behind, forced to navigate a world of madness as she searches for her lost mother and brother. Shot mostly in and around Baton Rouge, LA., LEFT BEHIND was produced by Paul Lalonde and Michael Walker and co-written by Paul Lalonde and John Patus.

“We’re seeing a number of big, biblical movies on the calendar this year, particularly SON OF GOD, NOAH, and EXODUS. What makes LEFT BEHIND different is that it is a contemporary story that could actually happen at any moment,” says Paul Lalonde, LEFT BEHIND producer and CEO of Stoney Lake Entertainment. “It’s also a historical account in a sense, because it’s based on a true story, it just hasn’t happened yet. So it’s very important to us that the core story not be changed.  We had offers from three of the major studios in Hollywood to distribute this movie, but none would allow final control of the story to be left in our hands.”

“My greatest hope for this movie is that people will be entertained and thrilled by it, but also that they’ll go home and have conversations with their family, and ask ‘do you think this could happen, or couldn’t happen?’ and it’ll inspire discussion and closeness,” says leading actor Nicolas Cage.

The movie is based on the New York Times bestselling book series of the same name, co-authored by Jerry B. Jenkins and Tim LaHaye. Based on the Bible and published in 32 different languages, the series has sold more than 65 million copies and is one of the best-selling fiction series of all time.

“I believe it does justice to the novel and will renew interest in the entire series,” author Jerry Jenkins said. “It is the best movie I have ever seen on the rapture,” added Tim LaHaye.

Behind the scenes, LEFT BEHIND features an award-winning team including Oscar and BAFTA nominated Director of Photography, Jack N. Green (UNFORGIVEN),  Oscar, BAFTA and EMMY nominated Production Designer, Stephen Altman (GOSFORD PARK, CHRONICLE), Editor Michael J. Duthie and Costume Designer Abby O’Sullivan. The music was composed by Jack Lenz (THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST).
