Don’t look up, written and directed by Academy Award winner Adam McKay (“The big gamble”), is a tale about the end of the world, as told by Lawrence’s character, Kate Dibiasky, an astronomy student who discovers that an asteroid is on its way to crash with the planet.

The Story Starts

In Adam McKay’s forthcoming dark comedy, Kate Dibiasky (played by Jennifer Lawrence) and Dr Randall Mindy (played by Leonardo DiCaprio) are frantic as they try to warn the public about an impending comet that would destroy the earth. Don’t look for anything. Gravity is a concept that they have a difficult time grasping.

Beginning with a scene in the toilet, in Don’t look up, we witness DiCaprio’s character have a panic attack. The pictures are mixed with sequences that we don’t know much about, such as television programs and demonstrations until they eventually get to speak with him. But the president of the United States, portrayed by Meryl Streep, rejects the importance of her vital message, claiming that it is “something extremely dull.”

A Better View of the Film

According to the official description, the film is about “two low-level astronomers who are forced to go on a massive media tour in order to warn mankind of an impending comet that would destroy the planet Earth.” Oh, but there’s so much more to it! McKay’s critique of the powers that be as well as the distracted people should resonate more than ever at this point in the country’s history.

Views of the Cast

The actor Leonardo DiCaprio recognized straight away that this was a tale he wanted to convey in Don’t look up, stating, “Adam has an unrivaled capacity to ignite discussion using comedy and current events.” Adam has weaved an insanely hilarious but critically important message about society, communication, our present priorities, and the climate catastrophe into an absurdly funny but critically essential picture.”

Meryl Streep portrays United States President Janie Orlean, while Jonah Hill portrays her son and chief of staff, Jason Orlean. The similarities, they’re everywhere. When it comes to Streep’s commander in chief, Adam McKay adds, “She’s extremely worried about the poll numbers, she’s very concerned about politics, and she loves her own fame.” “She’s a mashup of all the crazy leaders we’ve had over the past ten, twenty, thirty years,” says the author. “Chris Evans makes a brief cameo appearance in the film,” McKay said. “He has a great sense of humour. I’m not going to disclose who he plays, but he does make an appearance in the film.”

“It’s not the most conceptually strange notion – the idea of a catastrophe movie in which people don’t necessarily think that the calamity is coming,” writer and director Adam McKay said of the Jennifer Lawrence main feature in Don’t look up. 

“It’s not the most conceptually weird idea” In the end, it all boils down to the cliché of the mayor of Jaws: ‘Don’t you just love to prove it? ‘Would you want your name to appear in National Geographic?’ Basically, they are two extremely genuine mid-level astronomers who make the discovery of a lifetime, which turns out to be a deadly asteroid headed straight for the planet.
