Don't Look Up
Adam McKay (Vice, The Big Short, Step Brothers) is back with a star-studded parody about the end of the world. Jennifer Lawrence and Leonardo DiCaprio are astrophysicists who discover a comet that will destroy Earth; they have six months to spread the word and shake the populace from inertia and apathy. Unfortunately, the media, led by pernicious talk show hosts Cate Blanchett and Tyler Perry, care more about celebrity feuds and ratings. And the President of the United States (a hilarious Meryl Streep) is more concerned with her image, while her sycophantic son and chief of staff (a very droll Jonah Hill) lusts for power at the expense of Main Street. As Lawrence and DiCaprio resort to more and more extreme measures in effort to sound the alarm, their well-intentioned efforts are overrun by bombastic cast of supporting characters including Ariana Grande, Kid Cudi, Rob Morgan, Mark Rylance, and Timothée Chalamet. This bonkers film with serious undertones about the environment and polarizing politics, is sure to entertain.
