Left Behind: Rise of the Antichrist, the new end-times sequel from Kevin Sorbo, is here – here’s how to watch it, if it’s on streaming, and any digital release date updates.

Left Behind began as a best-selling novel in 1995, written by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, taking place during the Rapture and showing what happens to the non-believers who are… you guessed it, left behind.

It was the first in a 16-novel series, considered to be one of the most successful franchises in Christian publishing. There have been several movie adaptations, including 2014’s Left Behind starring Nicolas Cage. While praised by the original authors, it was a critical flop and grossed just $27.4 million against a $16 million budget.

“With recent current events and talk about the end times, this captivating story delivers the essence of what made the original book series and film so successful but does so in a fresh way, hopefully ushering in a new generation of fans.”

Paul Lalonde, a producer and co-writer on the movie, also said: “It’s a true story – it just hasn’t happened yet.

“The current political, social and global climate is creating a perfect storm for an even greater revival of interest in what the Bible says about it all. Nothing you see on the news is surprising if you have the roadmap in your hand.
