The Don’t Look Up Trailer Is Full of Countless Stars and a Problematic Comet

Netflix Apocalypse Comedy Don’t Look Up First Trailer

The movie has a truly, absurdly over-talented cast, even excepting its Oscar-winning leads Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawerence. A few of them are blink-and-you’ll-miss-’em in the trailer, but there’s Timothée Chalamet, Cate Blanchett, Tyler Perry, Rob Morgan, Jonah Hill, Mark Rylance, Ron Perlman, Arianda Grande, and Meryl Streep (playing the president, of course).

DiCaprio isn’t exactly known for playing meek, nebbish members of the hoi polloi before, but man if the movie hasn’t managed to shlub him down. His depiction of a man having a panic attack—presumably at his discovery of the Earth’s imminent demise—is quite authentic, but it’s also actually a little funny just to see the titular Wolf of Wall Street and Great Gatsby completely overwhelmed by anything, really. Or maybe that’s just me.

Don’t Look Back will premiere on Netflix on December 24, which will presumably make for a unique holiday movie experience. However, the movie will be coming to theaters on December 10, for a limited run that I’m extremely confident exists solely so the movie can be submitted to the Academy Awards. Still, looks good!
