'Rapture-Palooza' is the new comedy horror feature from 'Seperation City' director Paul Middleditch. It seems 2013 is the year for humourous sideways views of the apocalypse and 'Rapture-Palooza' is no different. Although the new one-sheet that has just been revealed is painfully unfunny and is greatly reminiscent of the poster for Harold Ramis's 2000 comedy redo 'Bedazzled'. Still, there's a whole host of comedy talent on the cards including Craig Robinson ('Hot Tub Time Machine'), Rob Corddry ('Warm Bodies'), Ken Jeong ('The Hangover'), Tyler Labine ('Tucker and Dale vs Evil') and Paul Scheer ('Piranha 3DD'). The sexy Anna Kendrick -below ('Up in the Air') and John Francis Daley play a couple left behind during the heavenly rapture only to end up living alongside the Devil. Robinson also stars in Seth Rogen's upcoming end of the world comedy feature 'This is the End'. Check out the new artwork below.
"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."
'Rapture-Palooza' arrives in limited theatres and on VOD from 7 June across the US thanks to Lionsgate.
