The upcoming Netflix black comedy features an ensemble cast of Hollywood’s greatest actors
A new trailer for the upcoming Netflix film Don’t Look Up was released via the Twitter handle of @LightsCameraPod, during the time the Olympic Games were airing. The trailer seems to be a leak, according to Screen Rant, as it is unavailable on any other official platform.
The teaser opens with a scene where a highly anxious Leonardo DiCaprio is seen to be taking deep breaths to calm himself while saying ‘you are here now’. It cuts to a scene in the White House where the characters of DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence, who play astronomers, are seen explaining that a comet is coming towards earth which could have potentially disastrous effects. While the President, Played by Jonah Hill, does not seem to take it seriously. It also features a brief shot of Meryl Streep’s character as well.
Netflix had previously teased the movie in a video featuring their 2021 slate of releases where DiCaprio and Lawrence are seen to be exiting a kind of aircraft, albeit with hesitancy.
In addition to Dicaprio, Lawrence, Hill and Streep, the movie also stars Cate Blanchett, Mark Rylance, Rob Morgan, Timothée Chalamet, Tyler Perry, Ron Perlman and Ariana Grande, among others.
American Filmmaker and Academy Award nominee Adam McKay will direct the film. McKay is noted for his films such as Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and The Big Short. He also served as head writer on the comedy sketch show Saturday Night Live. The movie is produced by Hyperobject Industries and Bluegrass Films.
Don’t Look Up is slated to release on Netflix sometime this year.
