The apocalypse is quite a hot commodity in Hollywood now, with summer’s upcoming World War Z and This is the End, as well as smaller dramas like Melancholia and Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, and even the upcoming black comedy It’s a Disaster.

Directed by Paul Middleditch and written by Chris Matheson, we follow Anna Kendrick and John Francis Daley, playing a couple who have to go against the odds during a religious apocalypse and defeat the Antichrist (Craig Robinson).

In between blood rainstorms and talking locusts and other fun post-religious apocalyptic events main characters Ben and Lindsey are trying to run a sandwich shop. Things get even more interesting when the Anti-Christ chooses Lindsay to be his new bride.
