Faith, Media & Culture

Here’s today’s dispatch from the crossroads of faith, media and culture.

Fathom Events and EchoLight Studios present Vanished – Left Behind: Next Generation via a one-night cinema event in select U.S. theaters tomorrow (9/28) at 7:00 PM local time. Inspired by the New York Times best-selling book series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, the production stars Amber Frank (The Haunted Hathaways), Dylan Sprayberry (Teen Wolf, Man of Steel) and Mason Dye (Finding Carter, Flowers in the Attic). Following the feature, audience members can enjoy a Q&A with cast and crew members. The event is host by Doug Fields. For more info or to buy tickets click here.

Synopsis: 15-year-old Gabby (Frank) is thrust into adulthood way too soon when a billion people around the globe suddenly vanish, and chaos engulfs the nation. The event forces Gabby, along with her younger sister Claire (Keely Wilson) and the two teen boys vying for Gabby’s affection, Josh (Dye) and Flynn (Sprayberry) — to figure out what has happened and how they fit into this dangerous new world.

The full cast also includes Tom Everett Scott (That Thing You Do), Jackson Hurst (Drop Dead Divas), Brigid Brannagh (Army Wives) and Rachel Hendrix (October Baby, Perfect Wave).
