A movie starring Meryl Streep, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, and Cate Blanchett is everything one could ask for. ‘Don’t Look Up’, directed by Academy Award winner Adam McKay, is a science fiction drama that shows two low-level astronomers who try to inform the world about a comet closing in on Earth.
The trailer for ‘Don’t Look Up’ was released on Wednesday, showed a superb ensemble, the peppy background score and some amusing dialogues give optimism for a quirky, intelligent series.
The summary for the trailer shows, “Kate Dibiasky (Jennifer Lawrence), an astronomy graduate student and her professor Dr Randall Mindy (Leonardo DiCaprio) makes 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 seems to care.”
Along with directing the movie, Adam McKay also penned it and is one of the producers. The film also features Mark Rylance, Ron Perlman, Timothée Chalamet, Ariana Grande, Scott Mescudi (aka Kid Cudi), Himesh Patel, Melanie Lynskey, Michael Chiklis, and Tomer Sisley,
