The “Left Behind” trilogy, based on the No. 1 New York Times bestselling book series of the same name, is filled with narratives seen in today’s headlines: conspiracy theories, misinformation campaigns, censorship, and a deadly virus spreading worldwide.
The successful series, produced by Cloud Ten Pictures, sold more than 10 million copies on VHS/DVD 20 years ago. This year, Cinedigm is releasing a digitally remastered “Left Behind” special edition that will be available on Sept. 1.
Each film went through a 4K scan and a color upgrade to improve the 20th anniversary edition. Along with the new and improved visual experience, “Left Behind” will now include several never-before-seen bonus features, including access to a full-length documentary where biblical scholars and theologians discuss their views on the rapture.
“The world we see on the news every day is scarier and more uncertain than it has been in at least a generation,” said “Left Behind” screenwriter, producer and Cloud Ten Pictures founder Paul Lalonde, in a statement shared with The Christian Post. “The world foretold in the Bible and dramatized in the ‘Left Behind’ films has never been more real than it is now. It’s really happening, exactly as the Bible predicted thousands of years ago.”
The movies are known for their message of warning, preparedness and salvation. And star popular actors Kirk Cameron and Louis Gossett Jr.
“The fear and uncertainty of the book of Revelation comes to life in the ‘Left Behind’ trilogy. Millions vanish, the society is in chaos, evil is lurking, the world is at war; this is the premise for the ground-breaking faith-based trilogy,” the special edition description reads. “The anniversary release features all three iconic films: ‘Left Behind,’ ‘Left Behind: Tribulation Force’ and ‘Left Behind: World at War.'”
Directed by Vic Sarin, Bill Corcoran and Craig R. Baxley, the “Left Behind” trilogy will be a two-disc release.
