MADRID, 8 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) –
Netflix has released the official teaser and the first images of Don’t Look Up, a film starring Jennifer Lawrence and Leonardo DiCaprio that tells the story of two mediocre astronomers on a huge media tour to warn humanity of the arrival of a comet that is going to destroy the Earth.
“Kate Dibiasky (Lawrence), astronomy graduate student, and her professor, Dr. Randall Mindy (DiCaprio), make an astonishing discovery: There is an orbiting comet in the solar system. The problem? Which is on a direct collision course with Earth. The other problem? That nobody cares. It seems that warning humanity about a planet killer the size of Everest is uncomfortable.
With the help of Dr. Oglethorpe (Rob Morgan), Kate and Randall embark on a media tour that takes them from the office of the nonchalant President Orlean (Meryl Streep) and her servile son and chief of staff, Jason (Jonah Hill), to the broadcast of The Daily Rip, a lively morning show hosted by Brie (Cate Blanchett) and Jack (Tyler Perry).
There are only six months left until the comet’s impact, but managing the news stream and gaining the attention of a social media-obsessed public before it’s too late is surprisingly comical. But what must be done to make the world look up? ”, Reads the synopsis.
In the clip you can see Randall Mindy, who appears to have an anxiety attack. “Your breathing stresses me out,” says Jason Orlean. “This will affect the entire planet” warns the scientist. “Yeah, but it’s very stressful,” answers Hill’s character.
“A comet is heading for Earth,” says Kate. “Do you know how many doomsday meetings we’ve had?” Says President Orlean. “Droughts, famine, ozone holes * It’s very boring,” Jason laments.
The film, directed by Adam McKay, also features Mark Rylance, Ron Perlman, Timothée Chalamet, Ariana Grande, Kid Cud, Himesh Patel, Melanie Lynskey, Michael Chiklis and Tomer Sisley. Don’t Look Up opens December 24 on Netflix and in select theaters that same month.
