President Meryl Streep Downplays the End of the World in Netflix’s ‘Don’t Look Up’ Disaster Movie
Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Rob Morgan and Jonah Hill are facing the threat of a comet hitting Earth in a new clip from the Netflix movie “Don’t Look Up.” The clip was shown during Netflix’s Tudum event to showcase its upcoming TV series and movies.

The dark sci-fi comedy, directed by Adam McKay, stars Lawrence and DiCaprio as two low-level astronomers who try to warn politicians and others that the Earth is in danger as a giant asteroid approaches, only to be met with apathy and skepticism. (The comparison to reactions to climate change are not a coincidence.)

Lawrence plays astronomy grad student Kate Dibiasky, who along with her professor, Dr. Randall Mindy, are not widely recognized in the astronomy world. But when they’re the first to realize the danger that could be heading straight toward Earth, they embark on a media tour to spread the word.
