Jennifer Lawrence and Leonardo DiCaprio, as two low-level astronomers, warn the world about a giant asteroid that looks to take out the Earth in the first trailer for “Don’t Look Up.”
Unlike Lawrence and DiCaprio as actors, the characters they portray — an astronomy grad student Kate Dibiasky (Lawrence) and her professor Dr. Randall Mindy (DiCaprio) — fly under the radar in their field. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, they are not. Yet the stargazers are the first to realize that space junk is flying fast at the planet, so they embark on a press tour to spread the word about the comet that could cause the planet’s impending doom.
Written and directed by Adam McKay (“Step Brothers,” “Talladega Nights”), the satirical “Don’t Look Up” features a star-studded cast of Jonah Hill, Tyler Perry, Timothee Chalamet, Ariana Grande, Cate Blanchett and Meryl Streep.
“Adam has an unparalleled ability to spark conversation with humor and timely stories,” DiCaprio recently told People Magazine. “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 Netflix film will have a limited run in theaters on Dec. 10 before landing on the streaming service on Dec. 24.
