It’s news to no one that Nicolas Cage has a very colorful track record of movie choices, and his latest gig is no exception. The newest, doom-filled trailer for “Left Behind” all but inserts the Academy Award-winning actor into an episode of HBO’s gloomy “The Leftovers.”
“Left Behind,” based on the best-selling Christian book series of the same name (which, it should be noted, were published years before “The Leftovers” was even a glimmer in HBO’s eyes), finds Cage forced to man an airplane solo after a sizable chunk of his passengers — co-pilot included — have mysteriously disappeared. As it turns out, the unexplained “vanishings” have occurred all around the globe. There’s also plenty of religious symbolism to go along with it, which makes sense given the story’s source material. (Also, you should probably check out the trailer for the “Left Behind” starring Kirk Cameron for the sake of comparison.)
If you’re not intrigued yet, maybe the trailer will hook you. Check it out below.

- ‘Godzilla’ (1998)
In Roland Emmerich’s “Godzilla” remake, the first monster footprint we see has a wide center with three short toes. However, in later shots the other footprints look completely different and have only long, narrow toes. Of course, if you take into account the critical reception this movie received, this mistake was the least of Emmerich’s worries.
- ‘Twister’ (1996)
When Bill (Bill Paxton) and Jo (Helen Hunt) are in the red truck, swerving around debris, part of a tractor smashes into their windshield. The impact leaves a noticeable hole in the glass, yet the windshield is completely unharmed in the next shot!
- ‘The Birds’ (1963)
Melanie has two large scratches on her right cheek after her attack, yet the bloody marks have disappeared by the time Mitch and Lydia walk her to the car.
- ‘The Day After Tomorrow’ (2004)
When discussing the North Atlantic current, the world map displays two blatant errors. Not only is Southeast Asia missing, but Arabia and Africa have been merged.
- ‘Titanic’ (1997)
Attempting to rescue Jack, Rose smashes all the glass from the holder and grabs the axe. The next shot of Rose shows her still holding the axe, but this time the case has most of its glass intact.
- ‘Independence Day’ (1996)
During the “Soviet Special News” scene at the White House, a close-up of the TV reveals not just the reflection of the actors, but a camera and a crew member as well. He can be seen wearing a light-colored short-sleeve shirt and baseball cap.
- ‘Arachnophobia’ (1990)
When Becky is in the bathroom (supposedly) naked after a shower, her father walks in on her and she quickly covers herself. In the mirror’s reflection, however, you can see her wearing nude-colored underwear, you know, for modesty.
- ‘War of the Worlds’ (2005)
When Ray steals the van, a registration sticker can clearly be seen in the corner of the windshield. Later, when they’re on the highway, the sticker has disappeared. Clearly, when you’re under alien attack, you don’t worry about stickers on cars.
- ‘Snakes on a Plane’ (2006)
Troy (Kenan Thompson) is the first passenger to exit the plane, however, you can spot him in the background on the plane in the following shot. Or maybe it’s subliminal messaging to get us to buy more orange polo shirts…
- ‘Outbreak’ (1995)
As the aircraft “Sandman” is about to drop bombs, the rear door is opened. In the next side angle shot of the plane, the door is suddenly closed again — an obvious continuity error. Maybe they changed their minds.
- ‘Armageddon’ (1998)
When Sharpe and Stamper have an argument over the asteroid, Truman talks about getting the radio back up. As he says this, there’s a close up of the clock. Later on, you can see the countdown clock in the background but, inexplicably, there’s more time on the clock. Movie magic!
- ‘2012’ (2009)
When Jackson pushes Gordon’s Porsche into a hole, an overhead shot of the scene shows no signs of the hole whatsoever.
- ‘Volcano’ (1997)
As the train pulls into the station, there is a very clear reflection of a cameraman that was seemingly overlooked.
