Netflix announced the first trailer for the star-studded asteroid comedy Don’t look up.
Joining the pair is one of the strangest cast members in recent memory, including Cate Blanchett, Timothée Chalamet, Jonah Hill, Mark Rylance, Ariana Grande, Kid Cudi and Tyler Perry. Meryl Streep also looks set to shoot scenes as the president of the United States.
McKay described Don’t look up is “a dark comedy”, about Mixed joy and sadness audio files in April that it was “a disaster movie where people don’t necessarily believe disaster is coming”.
He added: “It was two very sincere, mid-level astronomers who discovered life, which is a killer asteroid headed for Earth. They have to warn people and have to tour the media.
“They are navigating our world. That is they navigate their Twitter equivalent. It is they navigate the political landscape. That’s how they navigate talk shows and how they look. It’s DiCaprio and Lawrence and Rob Morgan trying to warn the world. I call it a dark comedy.”
The film gained attention earlier this year when Lawrence taken to hospital after a controlled glass explosion went bad during filming.
Lawrence was filming a scene with Chalamet when the explosion sent shards of glass flying, causing minor injuries to the actor’s eyes. Production on the film was then halted for a day, with Lawrence returning to the set shortly thereafter.
Don’t look up was released in UK cinemas on December 10, before arriving on Netflix on December 24.
