Netflix has announced a release date for Don't Look Up starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Directed by Adam McKay, the multi-starrer that will release in select theatres on December 10, will start streaming on the platform from December 24. 

Don’t Look Up follows the story of two junior astronauts, played by DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence, who set out on a tour to try and warn the people that a comet is on its way to destroy the planet. 

McKay is often known for his unconventional films. He has done a number of comedies with Will Ferrell like Anchorman, The Other Guys, Step Brothers and Talladega Nights. He also directed the 2015 dramedy The Big Short, which explained the financial crisis of 2008 and Vice, which showed Dick Cheney’s rise to power, played by Christian Bale.

While DiCaprio and Lawrence play the two astronauts on a media tour, the film also features Jonah Hill, Rob Morgan, Timothee Chalamet, Ariana Grande, Cate Blanchett, Meryl Streep, Chris Evans and Himesh Patel among others. 

With Adam McKay’s last two movies becoming critically acclaimed and with the ensemble cast in the movie, expectations of fans have gone high. Don’t Look Up is a film fans are eagerly waiting for. While a release date has now been confirmed by the streaming giant, a trailer for the film is yet to be officially released online. 

DiCaprio is currently working on Killers of the Flower Moon, which is directed by Martin Scorsese. Written by Eric Roth, the film is based on a book of the same name. Also starring Robert De Niro, Jesse Plemons and Lily Gladstone, the movie will be available on Apple TV+ for viewing soon.
