The latest end-of-the-world movie to hit Netflix has some serious star power. Leave the world behind – based on the book of the same name by Rumaan Alam – is directed by mr robotis Sam Esmail and stars Mahershala Ali, Julia Roberts, Ethan Hawke and Kevin Bacon. It’s a post-apocalyptic thriller with a decidedly intense vibe, which you can see in the trailer above.
As for what it’s actually about, here’s the official synopsis:
A family’s vacation changes when two strangers arrive at night, seeking refuge from a cyberattack that grows more terrifying by the minute, forcing everyone to accept their place in a collapsing world.
Leave the world behind Netflix’s dual release strategy with theaters and streaming will also continue. The film will be in select theaters on November 22 before finally streaming on Netflix on December 8.
