‘Leave the World Behind’ Trailer – Netflix Brings an All-Star Cast into the Apocalypse This December

“Mr. Robot” creator Sam Esmail directed the upcoming Netflix apocalypse thriller Leave the World Behind, and Netflix has debuted the full official trailer this morning.

Julia RobertsEthan Hawke and Mahershala Ali star in Leave the World Behind, with Roberts and Hawke playing a couple on vacation when the world falls apart.

Kevin Bacon and Myha’la also star in Leave the World Behind, topping off one hell of an ensemble cast. You can watch the brand new official trailer down below.

Leave the World Behind comes to Netflix on December 8, 2023, but the film will first be unleashed in movie theaters nationwide on November 22, 2023.

The film adapts the 2020 novel penned by Rumaan Alam.

“A family’s (Julia Roberts, Ethan Hawke) vacation is upended when two strangers (Mahershala Ali, Myha’la) arrive at night, seeking refuge from a cyberattack that grows more terrifying by the minute, forcing everyone to come to terms with their places in a collapsing world.”

“The disaster genre is one of my favorite genres, and the trick that we did in this film that differs from most disaster films is that in that genre, the focus—the priority of the storytelling—is on the set pieces,” Esmail recently told Vanity Fair. “It’s on the spectacle of whatever the disaster might be for that story, and the characters were secondary to that.”

Esmail continues, “They’re more there to react and become the audience avatar. What I think Rumaan did so well in the novel, and what I tried to capture in the film is to invert that and make the focus be on the characters, and their reaction. The spectacle of the disaster is secondary and off in the distance.”

Barack Obama and Michelle Obama produced the disaster movie.
