Netflix shared an entertaining first clip from author and filmmaker Adam McKay’s forthcoming comet catastrophe film Don’t Look Up. The famous actors Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence as two low-level cosmologists who wind up on a media visit to warn humans of an approaching comet that will destroy the earth.
The clip includes the two characters attempting to caution the President of the United States (Meryl Streep) and her staff, which incorporates Jonah Hill, of the world’s looming destruction, yet they aren’t actually viewing it seriously and recommend to “Sit tight then assess. First, you sit tight, then you assess. Sit tight, and THEN, assess.”
On the off chance that you partake in McKay’s movies like Vice, The Big Short, and Step Brothers, you’ll no doubt like what you find in this trailer.
DON’T LOOK UP movie summary:
Kate Dibiasky (Lawrence), an astronomy graduate, and her teacher Dr. Randall Mindy (DiCaprio) make a bewildering revelation of a comet circling inside the nearby planet group. The issue — it’s on an immediate impact course with Earth. The other issue? Nobody truly appears to mind. Turns out cautioning humankind about a planet-destroyer the size of Mount Everest is a badly designed truth to explore. With the assistance of Dr. Oglethorpe (Rob Morgan), Kate and Randall set out on a media visit that takes them from the workplace of an uninterested President Orlean (Streep) and her obsequious son and Chief of Staff, Jason (Jonah Hill), to the wireless transmissions of The Daily Rip, a peppy morning show hosted by Brie (Cate Blanchett) and Jack (Tyler Perry). With just a half year until the comet has an effect, dealing with the 24-hour consistent pattern of media reporting and acquiring the consideration of the social media fixated public before it’s past the point of no return demonstrates incredibly funny — what will it take to get the world to simply gaze upward?!
When discussing McKay and the film, DiCaprio recently said, “Adam has an unparalleled ability to spark conversation with humor and timely stories. I knew when I read his script that it was incredibly unique, as it struck an important chord concerning the modern world we live in. Adam has woven an incredibly timely message about society, how we communicate, our current priorities, and the climate crisis into an absurdly funny yet important movie.”
The film will be released on December 10th and on Netflix on December 24th.
