Former President Barack Obama and his wife, Michele Obama, have produced a new film on the globalist plot to extinguish humanity called Leave the World Behind, which is releasing on Netflix.
“Leave the World Behind,” the first fiction film produced by Barack and Michelle Obama on Netflix, is about a cyberattack that cripples the whole country by shutting down all of its power.
For filmmaker Sam Esmail’s most recent picture, which starred Julia Roberts, Mahershala Ali, Kevin Bacon, and Ethan Hawke, the Obamas offered movie comments. With a multi-year agreement with Netflix, the couple’s Higher Ground Productions company is producing its first fictional film as executive producers.
A Netflix synopsis of the film reads, “A family’s vacation to an opulent rental home takes an ominous turn when a cyberattack knocks out their devices — and two strangers appear at their door.”
According to Esmail in Vanity Fair, Obama believed that the script reflected a good deal of what would happen in a crisis in the modern world, indicating that “the work begins now—we shouldn’t wait around until the catastrophe happens.”

“I think [Obama] would say the same thing,” Esmail said. “Again, a trope of the disaster genre is that you’re set up with a few characters who are divided, and then they come together and defeat or overcome or get through what’s occurring. But that is just not true to real life. So the work begins now. It’s not really a message film, it’s more of a reflection on where we’re at as a society. But if there is a message, it’s a warning.”
Taking Disney as an example, some argue that woke Hollywood has sunk into irrelevance after multiple box office failures.
A particular scene attracted notice because one of the characters was denouncing White people in case the “world falls apart.”
“I’m asking for you to remember that if the world falls apart, trust should not be doled out easily to anyone, especially White people,” one character in the film tells her partner.
Esmail revealed to Vanity Fair that most of Barack Obama’s notes were from his observations regarding human nature.
“He had a lot of notes about the characters and the empathy we would have for them,” Esmail said. “I have to say he is a big movie lover, and he wasn’t just giving notes about things that were from his background. He was giving notes as a fan of the book, and he wanted to see a really good film.”
Ruman Alam’s book of the same name served as the basis for the film adaptation.
“In the original drafts of the script, I definitely pushed things a lot farther than they were in the film, and President Obama, having the experience he does have, was able to ground me a little bit on how things might unfold in reality,” Esmail added. “I am writing what I think is fiction, for the most part, I’m trying to keep it as true to life as possible, but I’m exaggerating and dramatizing. And to hear an ex-president say you’re off by a few details…I thought I was off by a lot! The fact that he said that scared the f*** out of me.”
