Is The Remaining A Rip Off Of Left Behind?

Is The Remaining a rip off of Left Behind? Not sure it is ripping off as much as it is trying to capitalize on the upcoming theatrical release of Left Behind. It just so happens to come out a month before Left Behind but instead of being an action thriller, it looks to be a found footage horror film instead. The film looks interesting based on the trailer but I do not have high hopes based off of the lack of any real information on the film outside of IMDB and the official website. However, it could be a surprise success considering that Cloverfield and Chronicle were low budget, found footage films as well. The real question is how biblical will the film be? It seems like a rapture (not sure if it is THE rapture) happens but that also happens in the TV show The Leftovers which is by no means biblical.

Note – The official website describes the film as “THE REMAINING is an action-packed supernatural thriller that addresses questions of life, love and belief against an apocalyptic backdrop. A group of close friends gather for a wedding, but the celebration is shattered by a series of cataclysmic events and enemies foretold by biblical end-times prophecies. The Remaining – Dan, Skylar, Tommy, Jack, Allison and Sam face a horrifying, uncertain future as they fight for their lives. Who will survive?”

    I know this article is old now but the remaining was much superior to left behind… felt more real and had much more biblical parallels then left behind.
