One of 3 or 4 titles produced under Lionsgate's micro-budget initiative, announced a couple of years ago, this so-called comedic look at life after the fallout of a religious apocalypse, is titled Rapturepalooza, and stars Craig Robinson as the Anti-Christ.

The official synopsis reads:

A year after the Rapture has removed much of humanity from Earth and the planet has been rendered as a hellish proving ground, Ben and Lindsey try to reestablishing their sandwich cart business. Beyond the occasional blood rainstorm and talking locusts that surface occasionally, the sandwich sellers have a new problem: the Anti-Christ decides he wants to take Lindsey as his bride.

The couple are played by Anna Kendrick (Lindsey, who the Anti-Christ, Craig Robinson, wants to take as his bride), and John Francis Daley of Bones (as the husband).

Chris Matheson wrote the script, which was previously billed as “Zombieland meets The Big Lebowski," and Paul Middleditch (an acclaimed director of commercials) is the director.

The film's first trailer, which is also red-band, is embedded below.

Craig Robinson seems to be establishing himself as a comedic leading man, with Tina Gordon Chism's Peeples, in his immediate future, co-starring alongside Kerry Washington, David Alan Grier, S. Epatha Merkerson and Kali Hawk, and an NBC comedy series he'll be at the center of.

Here's the trailer; no ETA on when it'll be released:

    Craig Robinson is a shitty actor, and i'm not surprised he would take this kind of role.

    That looks really, really, really stupid.

    A Black man is the Devil and a white couple must be saved and protect what's left of Earth. Progress.
