“I just want you to be ready,” a pleading mom states in the first teaser trailer for the upcoming movie “Left Behind.”
“Ready for what?” her daughter asks.
Fans of the “Left Behind” book series, which to date has sold more than 63 million copies, know the answer to the daughter’s question is the Rapture, a great and terrifying day prophesied in the Bible when millions of Christians around the world will be taken from earth to meet with Christ. It’s a day some imagine as people simply vanishing, leaving their families, cars and even airplanes suddenly empty.
The consequent chaos of millions of people disappearing is the launching pad for a reboot of the “Left Behind” movie franchise coming to theaters Oct. 3.
If the idea of a “Left Behind” movie sounds familiar, it’s because a trio of films based on the book phenomenon was made for home video more than 10 years ago.
