Netflix Original Film to Release on December 8

The trailer opens with Roberts and Hawke as a couple who are renting a luxurious home for the weekend with their two children. But their vacation is quickly upended when Ali and Herrold arrive in the night, claiming to be the owners of the house and warning of a mysterious blackout.

As the two families struggle to come to terms with what is happening, tensions rise and secrets are revealed. The trailer is full of suspense and mystery, and it leaves you wondering what will happen next.

“Leave the World Behind” is based on the best-selling 2020 novel of the same name by Rumaan Alam. Esmail, who is best known for creating the critically acclaimed TV series “Mr. Robot,” both wrote and directed the film.

The film is set to release on Netflix on December 8, and it is sure to be one of the most talked-about movies of the holiday season.


My detailed breakdown of the trailer

  • The trailer opens with Julia Roberts and Ethan Hawke playing Amanda and Clay Sandford, a couple who are vacationing with their two young children in a remote cabin.
  • Their idyllic vacation is interrupted when two strangers, G.H. (Mahershala Ali) and Ruth (Myha’la Herrold), arrive at their door in the middle of the night.
  • G.H. claims that he owns the cabin and that he and his daughter are seeking refuge from a mysterious cyberattack that has caused a widespread blackout.
  • The Sandfords are initially hesitant to let G.H. and Ruth into their home, but they eventually relent.
  • As the four of them spend more time together, they begin to learn more about each other and the strange circumstances that have brought them together.
  • However, as the blackout continues and the world around them descends into chaos, the Sandfords and the Scotts must come together to survive.
  • The trailer also features Kevin Bacon as a mysterious stranger who arrives at the cabin later in the film.

I’m really excited to see this movie when it comes out on Netflix on December 8th. It looks like it’s going to be a really good apocalyptic thriller, and I’m curious to see how the story unfolds.
