Jordin Sparks is assuring moviegoers that her new film “Left Behind” offers something for everyone, believers and non-believers alike.
“Left Behind” follows a small group of survivors who are left behind after millions of people suddenly vanish and the world plummets into darkness and chaos during the rapture, and Sparks stars alongside Nicolas Cage, Chad Michael Murray and Lea Thompson. The actress credited her cast members with providing a universal appeal to audiences.
“I think the great thing about this movie is that the people in it have the ability to bring in people from all over to see the movie, whether they are believers, whether they’re non-believers,” Sparks told The Christian Post during a telephone conference. “Whether they are agnostic, whether they don’t believe in anything, it doesn’t matter.”
The actress went on to reason that audiences are fascinated with the rapture, and even referenced HBO’s series “The Leftovers.”
“I am excited for my fans to come see it because whether they know the story of the rapture from the Bible, or they’ve watched ‘The Leftovers’ where people just disappear,” Sparks explained. “Everybody can relate to imagining, ‘What if someone that I loved wasn’t around anymore, in an instant?’ And it can definitely happen, whether it is through being taken up in the rapture or you know a tragic accident, life isn’t promised to us here, tomorrow is not promised and I think everybody can relate to that. So I think it’s going to be really cool to see all the different types of people that will come in to see the film and for everybody to start a conversation afterward.”
