The Rapturepalooza Red Band Trailer Is Just One More Reason to Love Anna Kendrick

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | March 6, 2013 | Comments ()


I don't know how it escaped me, but this is the first I've heard of Rapturepalooza, which comes from Chris Matheson, the same screenwriter that gave us Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. It's about two teens who battle their way through a religious apocalypse on a mission to defeat the Antichrist, who is in love with Anna Kendrick's character (as he should be). John Franis Daley plays the boyfriend; Craig Robinson is the foul-mouthed Satan; and lots of the best contemporary comedians round out the cast: Rob Corddry, Ken Jeong, Paul Scheer, Rob Heubel, and Tyler Labine.

I feel like it's probably a movie that's been sitting on a shelf for a couple of years, but hey! I'll take any excuse to add more Anna Kendrick into our lives, and hell if the movie doesn't look like intermittently funny.


Now ain't that the damn truth.

Finally a Movie About A Quirky Young Hipster in New York City: Frances Ha Trailer | Biz Break: Princess Leia Talks 'Star Wars' Sequels While Han Solo Chills With Ron Burgundy.

    Cash grab for Anna. Sure why not. I'll rent it though.

  • JayJay

    This looks like a pretty sh!t movie. If Craig Robinson isn't funny, that script must be made of crap

  • FREAKS&GEEKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Sorry, just got really excited about seeing JFD.

  • Conor

    She got them THAAAAAAAANGS!

    Movie looks passable, too.

  • Geetch

    The only black dude in the movie is the Antichrist? That's...awkward.

  • yocean

    My blasphemous soul is atitter with expectations.

  • Brown

    I would watch this in a theater but then I would feel obligated to tweet how I was never watching an Anna Kendrick film in a theater ever again due to...reasons.

  • Andrew

    It started off pretty bad with the "hey look evil things, we're making snarky remarks" but once it had only Robinson and Kendrick, it got better. Sadly it looks that that's few and far in between.

    Also Craig Robinson is in this and "This is the End?" Who did he get typecast as black guy in end of the world comedies?

  • BWeaves

    ORLANDO? I live in Orlando. We so deserve it.

  • ViciousTrollop

    My condolences.

  • emmalita

    It looks terrible, but the kind of terrible I would pay money to see.

  • Blake

    Finally! I was wondering when the Anna Kendrick drought was going to end.

    Side note: Is Craig Robinson the new Bernie Mac?

  • ,

    That white dress ... Jesus. Or Satan ... or something.

  • Quatermain

    I thought that looked pretty funny...but then again the Jackass movies just about made me laugh myself into hypoxia, so I might not be the most objective standard.

  • goddammitmrnoodle

    Your comment is funnier than the Jackass movies. But it made me laugh so upvote for you!

  • anikitty

    Is it April 1st already?

  • Frank Berrodin

    Man... this looks pretty bad

  • Sam Weir is stepping up his game, fellas!

  • gatesong

    That's awesome, but it also just makes me think that a Good Omens movie needs to happen.

  • Green_Eggs_and_Hamster

    I wish. Unfortunately, I bet it is pretty close to unfilmable. So much interior language and thoughts that move everything forward. No one could ever do justice to it.

  • NateMan

    Oh HELL YES.

  • NateMan

    Yep, I'll watch that. I mean, I won't waste money at a theater, but it seems worth a rental.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Nah, not even that.
