DON'T LOOK UP | Official Teaser Trailer | Netflix


The director of The Big Short and Vice returns with another absurd modern American comedy. 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. 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?! D: Adam McKay, US, 2021

A brief intro "Meteors, Moons and Other Earth Killers" by Thomas Boudreaux (Physics and Astonomy) opens the show. After the film, Boudreaux leads public stargazing at the Observatory with cookies and hot chocolate!
