As Netflix already announced via Twitter in October, it is not holding back with concentrated celebrity power for "Don't Look Up". The cast includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, Jonah Hill and music stars Kid Cudi and Ariana Grande. "The Big Short" director Adam McKay, who is known for his special humor anyway, stages a kind of black sci-fi comedy around the imminent impact of a giant asteroid. However, no one except for two space explorers are aware of it, and warning all of humanity of the great disaster is not so easy, since the two are anything but big shots in their field. In order to make themselves heard, the duo promptly starts a media-effective world tour in order to warn the population. Details on when "Don't Look Up" will be released on Netflix are not yet available.
