Adam McKay’s ‘Don’t Look Up,’ starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence, will be released in December on Netflix.

A Netflix release date for Adam McKay’s next film, Don’t Look Up, has been confirmed. McKay’s latest picture, released in select cinemas on December 10th, will be available on Netflix on December 24th for streaming.

Although Don’t Look Up is McKay’s third drama as a writer/director, the film is also eagerly anticipated as another biting commentary on current events and American politics. Like Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence’s characters, they embark on a tour to warn the world that an asteroid is on its way to destroy the Earth. 

Both DiCaprio and Lawrence star as amateur astronomers who attempt to warn the public about an impending comet disaster but find it difficult to be taken seriously. Meryl Streep plays the president, and Jonah Hill plays her son and chief of staff. Even though McKay’s films aren’t always subtle, it seems like he’s addressing the public’s inability to believe what experts claim.

According to McKay, he had intended for his picture to be a critique of the world’s response to climate change, but the epidemic has shifted the film.’

“That’s how it began. It wasn’t long before a pandemic, and we learned a lot more about how we communicate with one other due to that. Despite our best efforts, we are unable to communicate with one another. Hence, it is about climate change, but at its core, it is about what the internet and cell phones have done to our communication.”

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, McKay’s directorial debut from 2004, has a huge cast, but Don’t Look Up might have the biggest cast yet. The film will also include Jonah Hill, Rob Morgan, Mark Rylance, Tyler Perry, Ron Perlman and Timothée Chalamet, Cate Blanchett, Meryl Street and Himesh Patel, as well as Chris Evans, Tomer Sisley, Melanie Lynskey, Ginny Gershon and Michael Chiklis.

As of December 10th, Don’t Look Up will be available in select theatres and on Netflix. For now, we should wait for further updates.
