The first poster has arrived for director Paul Middleitch’s new horror comedy, Rapture-Palooza, and also earlier this week came a hilarious red band trailer. Both can be seen below.
The poster is a bit meh, while the trailer is hilarious and full of all the good stuff we would expect from a trailer branded ‘red band’. I wasn’t so sure of this flick to begin with, but now I feel this could be one of the better horror comedies of the year, and Craig Robinson as The Devil is a superb piece of comedy genius.
Directed by Paul Middleitch, Rapture-Palooza is written by Chris Matheson. The cast includes Anna Kendrick, Craig Robinson, Ken Jeong, John Francis Daley, Rob Corddry, Thomas Lennon and Ana Gasteyer. The film arrives in US cinemas on 7th June, no UK date has been revealed yet.
When the Apocalypse actually happens and a billion people are raptured up to heaven, Lindsey (Anna Kendrick, Pitch Perfect) and her boyfriend, Ben (John Francis Daley, TV’s “Bones”), are left behind in suburban Seattle. The young couple try their best to lead a normal life surrounded by talking locusts, blood rain showers, and pot-smoking wraiths. But when The Beast (Craig Robinson, TV’s “The Office”) makes his home base in their neighborhood, Lindsey finds herself the object of his affection. With the help of her family, friends, and a lawn-mowing zombie neighbor (Tom Lennon, TV’s “Reno 911”), the young couple set off to stop the Antichrist from taking her as his bride… and just maybe saving the world in the process.
