DON’T LOOK UP, An Asteroid’s About To Wipe Us Out!

Adam McKay's (Ant-Man, Vice) black comedy sci-fi feature Don't Look Up, starring Academy Award winners Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence, has just dropped its first teaser trailer.

Kate Dibiasky (Lawrence), an astronomy grad student, and her professor Dr. Randall Mindy (DiCaprio) discover that a comet orbiting within our solar system is on a direct collision course with Earth. Not a great start, but what's worse is that no one really seems bothered.

As President Meryl Streep's Chief of Staff (Jonah Hill) eloquently puts it, "drought, famine, the hole in the ozone... it's all sooo boring." Could you even imagine if extinction was facing us in the face, and our very own elected world leaders refused do anything about it? Unthinkable.

DON'T LOOK UP WITH CATE BLANCHETT as BRIE EVANTEE, TYLER PERRY as JACK BREMMER, LEONARDO DICAPRIO as DR. RANDALL MINDY AND JENNIFER LAWRENCE

So instead, Kate and Randall embark on a world media tour to warn mankind of its dinosaurs-style impending doom. With only six months to convince the world it needs to be saved, let's just say it's not looking good. Can't blame DiCaprio for all that hyperventilating.

McKay has also assembled quite a spectacular supporting cast: Cate Blanchett, Timothée Chalamet, Ron Perlman, Ariana Grande, Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi, Himesh Patel, and Tyler Perry, to name but a few.

And the best part? Don't Look Up crashes into select theatres December 10th, and on Netflix on December 24th. Because nothing says Christmas spirit quite like the end of the world.
