Donít Look Up (2021, D: McKay) S: Lawrence, Blanchett, DiCaprio, Hill, Chalamet, Streep - Netflix

Bouncing back from Vice, Adam McKay was all set to begin production this past spring on his next feature,Donít Look Up, starring Jennifer Lawrence. While the pandemic halted those plans, the Netflix production is now gearing back with up with quite the insane cast.

Joining Lawrence and the previously announced Cate Blanchett and Rob Morgan will be Leonardo DiCaprio, Timothťe Chalamet, Jonah Hill, Himesh Patel, Ariana Grande, Kid Cudi, Matthew Perry, and Tomer Sisley. The film, which has been described as a comedy, tells the two low-level astronomers who must go on a giant media tour to warn mankind of an approaching asteroid that will destroy Earth.

Speaking to his influences, McKay said the film is a ďdark satire in the school of Wag the Dog, Doctor Strangelove, and Network and if it is half as good as any of them, I will be happy.Ē For those worried that DiCaprioís involvement may mean Killers of the Flower Moon will get delayed, thankfully thatís not the case as heíll be able to complete both projects, with this one marking his first Netflix production.

Damn, thatís a hell of a cast!

Hopefully this is more along the lines of Vice and The Big Short and not McKayís other comedies.

His other comedies are fine but theyíre not in the same league as Vice and The Big Short.

Not sure whether it's makeup or that she's obviously lost some weight, but Streep looks pretty damn good.

Streep? What about Hill? I know he’s been going up and down, but he’s almost emaciated here.

Jennifer Lawrenceís hair looks like a Covid cut from a husband who didnít want his wife going to a salon. My God. Haha

Hill says a big part of why he lost weight was just giving up beer. If true, Damn.

If true? Anyone who stops guzzling beer, the pounds just fall off. Seriously.

He looks great.

My dad guzzles beer daily. At minimum a 15 pack a day and he's the skinniest dude I know: 6 foot 2 and only 135 pounds.
Meanwhile I only drink beer on occasion and I'm 6 foot 3 and around 240 pounds. smh

Me too. Despite being only mezzo-mezzo on Vice, I am still a big Adam McKay fan. He has one of the most interesting careers in Hollywood.

So this is along the same line of Seeking a Friend for the End of the World? If so, I'm. Seeking was one of my favorite films of that year.

I think this will be much better. I didn't love Seeking first time. I do have to give another shot. But this looks wittier, snappier. This almost seems like a David O. Russel movie. Can’t wait. So theaters and Netflix same day, 12/24, right?

I assume the whole thing is a cynical allusion to global warming.

Looks great. McKayís turn with The Big Short was very interesting. This looks like more of the same and thereís nothing wrong with that.

I agree with that assumption.

This actually looks solid, and it is on Netflix so I will definitely watch. Should be a nice Christmas Eve treat.
