After teasing its upcoming comedy, Don’t Look Up, starring Jennifer Lawrence and Leonardo DiCaprio earlier this month, Netflix is back with an exclusive clip.
The film is star-studded — to put it lightly — as Meryl Streep, Tyler Perry, Jonah Hill, Ariana Grande, Kid Cudi, and more were also tapped for the movie, which follows a professor and grad student who are desperately trying to save Earth. Here’s the official synopsis:
“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. With the help of Dr. Oglethorpe (Rob Morgan), 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?!”
Check out the clip, which premiered exclusively at Netflix’s global fan event TUDUM, below. Don’t Look Up is due in select theaters December 10 and will hit Netflix on Christmas Eve, December 24.
