Netflix has announced the release of a new movie coming this December that might make a late push for awards season contention. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence as astronauts, but features quite the ensemble cast of talent. Titled, Don’t Look Up, the first trailer has been revealed. The Don’t Look Up movie will be released in select theaters on December 10th and on Netflix on December 24th.
DiCaprio last appeared in a film in 2019’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Lawrence on the other hand was last seen reprising her role as Mystique in the Dark Phoenix movie, also in 2019. Also featured in the Don’t Look Up movie are Tyler Perry as Jack, Ariana Grande as Riley Bina and Kid Cudi aka Scott Mescudi as DJ Chello.
Don’t Look Up movie trailer
Kate Dibiasky (Jennifer Lawrence), an astronomy grad student, and her professor Dr. Randall Mindy (Leonardo DiCaprio) make an astounding discovery of a comet orbiting within the solar system. The problem — it’s on a direct collision course with Earth. The other problem? No one really seems to care. Turns out warning mankind about a planet-killer the size of Mount Everest is an inconvenient fact to navigate. With the help of Dr. Oglethorpe (Rob Morgan), Kate and Randall embark on a media tour that takes them from the office of an indifferent President Orlean (Meryl Streep) and her sycophantic son and Chief of Staff, Jason (Jonah Hill), to the airwaves of The Daily Rip, an upbeat morning show hosted by Brie (Cate Blanchett) and Jack (Tyler Perry). With only six months until the comet makes impact, managing the 24-hour news cycle and gaining the attention of the social media obsessed public before it’s too late proves shockingly comical — what will it take to get the world to just look up?!
