Jennifer Lawrence and Leonardo DiCaprio are here to save the world (from itself). The trailer for new Netflix comedy movie Don't Look Up shows the pair playing nebbish stargazers who discover a planet-killing comet on a collision course with Earth. And nobody cares...
They set off to convince people that the world is ending, but even the president (Meryl Streep) and her chief of staff/son (Jonah Hill) are too wrapped up in themselves. Is that satire we detect...? Don't Look Up streams on Netflix on Dec. 24.
The chaos is orchestrated by Adam McKay, the Oscar-winning director behind biting real-life satires The Big Short and Vice (as well as Anchorman and Step Brothers).
In addition to Leo and J-Law, the cast includes (deep breath): Timothée Chalamet, Ariana Grande, Cate Blanchett, Tyler Perry, Scott Mescudi (aka Kid Cudi), Mark Rylance, Ron Perlman, Rob Morgan, Michael Chiklis, Tomer Sisley, Himesh Patel and Melanie Lynskey.
