Another apocalypse movie is heading to theaters this Fall. "", starring as a commercial airline pilot manning his vehicle while a strange global disaster happens, has just released its first trailer.

A small group of survivors are left behind after millions of people suddenly vanish and the world is plunged into chaos and destruction. The trailer shows chaos and pandemonium like two planes crossing each other's tracks and a school bus falling off the bridge.

Based on 1995 novel by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, the movie explores a theoretical theological event during which Christians will be taken up to heaven by God before the Earth's destruction. The novel had been adapted to big screen before in 2000's "Left Behind: The Movie", starring .

"The first time we did it it was a straight to DVD production."

Directed by former stuntman Vic Armstrong, "Left Behind" arrives in U.S. theaters October 3. , and also star in it.
