Stellar new movie Don’t look up has wilderness, a totally incredible premise. Something completely out of the realm of reality. The plot that never, never, happen in a million years. It’s a world where scientists have proof that something terrible is happening … and no one believes them. Pfft. That Iike to could have happened.
Written and directed by Adam McKay, who made Big Short, Head, Step Brothers, and more, Don’t look up stars Oscar winners Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence as two scientists who know a a large comet will hit Earth. The trick is to make people take them seriously, despite the huge evidence. He also appears in the film Jonah Hill, Mark Rylance, Timothée Chalamet, Tyler Perry, Ariana Grande, Scott Mescudi, Himesh Patel, Melanie Lynskey, Michael Chiklis, Ron Perlman, Cate Blanchett, Meryl Streep and others. Yes, more. Here’s a new one an extended clip that will give you an idea of what to expect.
Production on the film began late last year so it seems pretty clear that the idea of neglecting science and danger is largely inspired by the modern world and the COVID-19 pandemic. Even if it was written and designed before that, it remains to be seen whether absurd, political comments will continue to be played fun and funny given that we live every day. Watching this clip, he seems to want to. Hill and Streep are on top stupidity along with the intensity and seriousness of Lawrence and DiCaprio works well. If the rest of the film achieves such a balance, Netflix could have something special.
Don’t look up debuts on Netflix on December 24, but it will be be in selected cinemas before that, on December 10th.
