Don’t Look Up

Dont Look Up Cast 750x400

Chattanooga, Tennessee—


Y’all, I’m just going to cut right to the chase on this: Today, we finally got a trailer for Netflix’s Don’t Look Up, and when I tell you this thing is so packed with stars, it might need its own solar system… Here’s the trailer!

Netflix / Via

The film — which, according to the title cards, is “Based On Real Events That Haven’t Happened Yet” — follows two low-level astronomers, Dr. Randall Mindy (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Kate Dibiasky (Jennifer Lawrence), who discover a massive comet headed directly toward Earth, coming to 1998’s Armageddon* us all

Overall, the movie looks positively bonkers and absurdly fun — which should come as no surprise, as it was written and directed by Adam McKay, the gentleman behind such ’00s classics as AnchormanThe Other Guys, and The Big Short.


Besides the obvious massive stars that are Leo and J. Law, we also have Jonah Hill:

And, of course, MERYL. FREAKIN’. STREEP* as the president of the United States:


So, uh, yeah. Just give these casting directors all of the awards now and save us a lot of time. But we’ll just have to see for ourselves what other awards this beast of a movie is worthy of when it finally hits Netflix on Dec. 24!
