Nicolas Cage
took on the role of a man who escaped from Hell in “Drive Angry,” and now he’s playing with the other side of the coin in “Left Behind.”

The first trailer for the biblical-themed action thriller has been unveiled on Facebook, co-starring Lea Thompson, Chad Michael Murray and “American Idol” alumna Jordin Sparks.

“Left Behind,” based on a book series, was previously adapted for a movie starring Kirk Cameron. Like HBO’s similarly-themed “The Leftovers,” the forthcoming reboot takes place after the Rapture.

“Left Behind,” though, is much more action-heavy, as evident by the casting of Cage as a pilot investigating the disappearances taking place all across the globe.

Much of the focus of the teaser is on Cage and Thompson’s on-screen daughter, Cassi Thompson ("Switched at Birth"), who is being prepared for the events her parents seem to know are coming.

 “Left Behind” is coming to theaters on October 3. Check out the trailer and weigh in below!
