We’ll say this for Nic Cage: you can’t accuse him of having a predictable career. Just yesterday, we were eagerly looking forward to seeing the Oscar winner return to form with David Gordon Green’s Joe.

Based on Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins‘ bestselling religious series about the Rapture, the sci-fi thriller follows a group of survivors left to watch chaos unfold on Earth.
