Somebody dropped a water bottle, said one pastor,and it sounded like a canon went off.
The film premiered to a standing-room only crowd at the new LA Live theater in downtown Los Angeles. The packed theater cheered in the end.
It was one of the best received films Ive done, says director Tim Chey.A lot of people told me later they cried at several scenes.
Another viewer commented,I thought the Rapture was coming right then.
Final: The Rapture was filmed in six countries and took almost five months of shooting.
The film is slated to open in select theaters throughout the U.S. in September 2013 starting in Houston and then on to LA, NY, Portland, Seattle, San Antonio, Nashville, and other cities.
Breathtaking, gripping, layered, and astonishing, Final: The Rapture is a gritty, international tale of four separate stories woven together by a common theme: the Rapture.
In Los Angeles, Colin Nelson desperately attempts to flee to Bora Bora. Keenly aware that he's in the Tribulation period, his only hope is in a mysterious man. In Tokyo, a journalist, Masashi, tries to unravel the disappearance of millions of people as the government closes in on him. In Buenos Aires, Marie searches for her final relative as time runs out. And on a deserted island in the South Pacific, Tom Wiseman, an avowed atheist, attempts to be rescued after his plane goes down.
