So the new adaptation based on the religious exploitation novel "Left Behind," starring Nick Cage, managed to gross $6,300,000 its first weekend. Well, that's a lot more than Atlas Shrugged part anything made, but only barely more that the Nick Cage classic piece of trash, Drive Angry, which managed to gross $5,200,000 its first weekend, with a story featuring a simultaneous gun fight and sex scene as one of its highlights. Nick playing a guy who escaped from Hell is just about as popular as Nick pimping for the Christians. Of course, Drive Angry was a better movie, from all that I've heard. I have no intention of going to see Left Behind, although I must, for full disclosure, admit that I worked on Drive Angry, which almost made it worth being in Shreveport.
