Finally, a trailer for Don't Look Up, the upcoming Jennifer Lawrence film from Netflix directed by Adam McKay. It's also a star-studded lineup.
After a two-year absence, Lawrence has returned to the big screen... no less, as a fiery redhead with harsh bangs! The actor also has a beard! Also in attendance is Ariana Grande!
More famous actors feature in Don't Look Up than the sequel to Knives Out: Leo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Ariana Grande, Jonah Hill, Mark Rylance, Tyler Perry, Timothée Chalamet, Ron Perlman, Michael Chiklis, and Meryl Streep.
When two amateur astronomers go on a massive media tour to warn the public about an impending comet that will wipe out the whole human race, things take a surprising turn. As DiCaprio put it to Entertainment Weekly, "Adam's ability to inspire conversation with humor and timely tales is unmatched". He hit a distinct note in the current world with his writing, and I felt I had found something truly special when I finished reading it." Adam has blended an extraordinarily topical message about society, communication, our current priorities and the environment issue into an absurdly humorous yet vital film."
When asked about the film's cast, McKay told Entertainment Weekly, "I've known Jennifer for a long time now. I was one of her first encounters in the city of Los Angeles. Step Brothers is one of her all-time favorite shows, and she watches it religiously. Because I've been a huge admirer since she first appeared, I can honestly say that watching her just makes me chuckle. So I created this character especially for her. In terms of acting, she was the first in her... As soon as Leo began to show an interest in the subject, the epidemic struck. Because of this, we spent a significant amount of time during the pandemic going over the script and discussing his role. His knowledge of movies and film history is impressive, and he has a good grasp of character motivations. I thoroughly enjoyed myself while working with him." On December 24, Netflix will stream Don't Look Up following a limited theatrical run that began on December 10th. McKay has stated of Don't Look Up, "Netflix seeing our movie as an international comedy sets the bar high for myself and my crew in an exciting and inspiring way." "When it comes to crafting films that portray our culture, Adam has always had tremendous timing," says one critic. Another person that was mentioned was Scott Stuber, Netflix's Head of Film. I am happy about this even if he is right and planet Earth will be destroyed in the next several years." " Dr. Randall Mindy, an astronomy professor, and his graduate student Kate Dibiasky (Jennifer Lawrence) find a comet circling within the solar system. The problem is that it's headed straight towards the Earth and will collide with it. Another issue is... It's as though no one gives a fig about it. It turns out that alerting humanity to the existence of a planet-destroying supernova the size of Mount Everest is a difficult task."
"As a result of Dr. Oglethorpe's (Rob Morgan) guidance, Kate and Randall embark on a media tour that takes them from the office of a President Orlean (Meredith Streep) who is uninterested in them, to the airwaves of The Daily Rip, an upbeat morning show hosted by Brie (Cate Blanchett) and Jack (Jonah Hill) (Tyler Perry). Managing the 24-hour news cycle and attracting the social media-obsessed public before it's too late proves embarrassingly comical with only six months left until the comet makes an effect. What will it take to convince the world to just look up?"
