Leave the World Behind, Sam Esmail’s adaptation of the novel by Rumaan Alam, debuts in theaters starting in November before arriving on the streaming platform on December 8. A film synopsis reads: “In this apocalyptic thriller from award-winning writer and director Sam Esmail (Mr. Robot), Amanda (Roberts) and her husband Clay (Hawke), rent a luxurious home for the weekend with their kids, Archie (Charlie Evans) and Rose (Farrah Mackenzie). Their vacation is soon upended when two strangers — G.H. (Mahershala Ali) and his daughter Ruth (Myha’la) — arrive in the night, bearing news of a mysterious cyberattack and seeking refuge in the house they claim is theirs. The two families reckon with a looming disaster that grows more terrifying by the minute, forcing everyone to come to terms with their places in a collapsing world.”
