Netflix hosted the premiere of a dark apocalyptic comedy titled Don’t Look Up with its cast members including Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep, Jonah Hill, Tyler Perry, Scott Mescudi, Ron Perlman, Tomer Sisley, Himesh Patel, Paul Guilfoyle and Writer/Director/Producer Adam McKay at the Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York.
Other attendees included Jeff G. Waxman (Executive Producer), David Sirota (Story by/Co-Producer), Staci Roberts-Steele (Co-Producer), Nicholas Britell (Composer), Taura Stinson (Songwriter), Hank Corwin (Editor), Linus Sandgren (Director of Photography), Amy Mainzer (Science Consultant), Danielle Waxman (Podcast Producer), Gabe Hilfer (Music Supervisor), Lisa Rodgers (Post Producer), Alex Moffat, Bill Nye, Cherry Jones, Christopher Abbott, Christine Baranski, Cynthia Rowley, Danica Patrick, Donny Deutsch, Florence Pugh, and Geoffrey Fletcher, among others.
Don’t Look Up follows astronomy grad student Kate Dibiasky (Jennifer Lawrence), and her professor Dr Randall Mindy (Leonardo DiCaprio) as they discover a comet on a direct collision course with Earth. Naturally, they take this news to President Orlean (Meryl Streep) and her fawning Chief of Staff Jason (Jonah Hill) – who, to their surprise, have heard enough apocalypse stories and are indifferent on the matter.
Therefore, with the help of Dr Oglethorpe (Rob Morgan), Kate and Randall must go on a press tour to save humanity, which puts them on a collision course with all sorts of eccentric media personalities including morning show hosts Brie (Cate Blanchett) and Jack (Tyler Perry). With only six months left until impact, it soon no longer funny how unwilling people are to pay attention – what will it take for the world to look up?
