20th Anniversary Release of Left Behind Movies More Relevant Than Ever

Left Behind Movies: Kirk Cameron’s Faith Based Trilogy Now Available on DVD 

Who knew that 20 years ago, the “Left Behind” trilogy of movies starring Kirk Cameron and Lou Gossett, Jr. would so closely parallel events of today?

Twenty years ago, conspiracy theories, misinformation campaigns, censorship, and a deadly virus infecting the world were all part of the thrilling plotlines from the LEFT BEHIND movies produced by Cloud Ten Pictures, based on the #1 New York Times Best Seller book series of the same name. Those movies were an overnight success and went on to sell more than ten million copies on VHS and DVD. 

Fast forward to 2020 and these ‘plotlines’ are now today’s daily headlines making Cinedigm’s September 1 release more relevant than ever.  Digitally remastered from a new 4K scan from 35MM and with a color upgrade, the 20th Anniversary Edition provides an incredible visual experience that will look great on today’s home entertainment systems.  Based on the description of the end times laid out in the Bible, these movies pair perfectly with the film’s unwavering message of warning, preparedness and most importantly hope and salvation for all.

The update also includes a slew of never-before-seen bonus features, including access to a full- length documentary exploring the Rapture with the world’s foremost biblical scholars and theologians. 

“The world we see on the news every day is scarier and more uncertain than it has been in at least a generation,” says LEFT BEHIND screenwriter, producer and Cloud Ten Pictures founder Paul Lalonde. “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 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. Starring Kirk Cameron and Louis Gossett, Jr. the anniversary release features all three iconic films: Left Behind, Left Behind: Tribulation Force & Left Behind: World at War and all new bonus features including: the Hollywood premiere special, cast and crew interviews, additional footage, a candid interview with Kirk Cameron about the importance of faith and a featurette with Louis Gossett, Jr. Dove Approved for 12+ the series has become one of the best known faith-based series, changing the genre’s landscape for years to come.   

The LEFT BEHIND TRILOGY was directed by a trio of excellent directors Vic Sarin, Bill Corcoran and Craig R. Baxley. The films were produced by Joe Goodman, Ralph Winter, Nicholas Tabarrok, Peter Lalonde and Andre van Heerden. Executive producers include Ron Booth, Paul Lalonde, Peter Lalonde, Bobby Neutz and Edwin Ng. Here’s the full breakdown of the 2-disc special edition release.
