"Left Behind" movie quotes tell the story of how people attempt to deal with life and the world after a biblical rapture. The Christian thriller is a reboot of the 2000 film, both of which were based on novels of the same name by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. Directed by Vic Armstrong using a screenplay adapted by Paul LaLonde and John Patus, "Left Behind" opened on October 3, 2014.

In "Left Behind," airline pilot Rayford Steele (Nicolas Cage) is at the helm of a flight bound for London when without explanation, many of the passengers aboard disappear. While reporter Cameron "Buck" Williams (Chad Michael Murray) begins documenting the events, those on the ground have gone into full panic mode with widespread riots and looting occurring.

In between trying to land the plane among the disorder, Rayford contacts his daughter, Chloe (Cassi Thomson), and learns that his estranged wife, Irene (Lea Thompson) and son have been taken in what is believe to be a religious rapture. And while Chloe strives to come to terms with what has happened, Rayford looks back on his very religious wife, who predicted this day down to the tiniest detail.

"Left Behind" is just one of several films in theaters in the fall of 2014 along with "Gone Girl," "Men, Women & Children," "The Equalizer," "Pride," "Good People," "The Boxtrolls," "This is Where I Leave You," "The Maze Runner," "A Walk Among the Tombstones," "Dolphin Tale 2," "No Good Deed," "The Skeleton Twins," "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby," "The Drop," "The Identical," "Frontera," "The Longest Week," "The November Man," "The Congress," "Life of Crime," "Starred Up," "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," "If I Stay."
