The new movie release of Left Behind has been scheduled for June 20th, according to the Left Behind Facebook page. The movie was shot last year in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The cast include Nicholas Cage, Jordin Sparks, Chad Michael Murray, Lea Thompson and Nicky Whelan.

It is rare for a Christian movie to receive a wide theatrical release during the summer or Christmas holidays. Instead most Christian films are released around February or September.

Since the new Left Behind is a summer release, it will probably draw a significantly larger teen audience than recent Christian film releases. Expect a lot of youth groups to attend this movie.

According to the Internet Movie Database, the new Left Behind cost $15 million while the original Left Behind film released in 2000 cost $4 million. However, these numbers may not be accurate. Other Christian filmmakers have complained about incorrect budget estimates published for their films.

IMDB also reports that the original Left Behind grossed $4,223,409 in American theaters. In an unusual distribution and marketing effort, the original movie was first released on videotape before going to theaters.
