Jennifer Lawrence Has a Relatable Reaction to the Potential End of the World in the Don’t Look Up Teaser

Yeah, there’ve been oh-no-a-comet/asteroid-is-hitting-the-earth movies before, but those were full of dramatic heroics and hobbits running away from tidal waves. This one… is not. Don’t Look Up is the upcoming Netflix movie from Adam McKay, best known for Anchorman or The Big Short, depending on which kind of comedy is more to your taste. It stars essentially everyone (Ariana Grande and Meryl Streep in the same movie) and is about two unfamous astronomers tasked with explaining to the world that a comet is headed our way and it’s very bad, actually.

Lest you think I’m kidding about the movie starring everyone, here is a partial list of the cast: Leonardo DiCaprio (a hyperventilating astronomer), Jennifer Lawrence (a self-medicating grad student), Timothée Chalamet, Rob Morgan, Jonah Hill, Meryl Streep, Gina Gershon, Cate Blanchett, Ron Perlman, Melanie Lynskey, Mark Rylance, Ariana Grande, Tyler Perry, Michael Chicklis, and Kid Cudi.

The teaser is short, but also quite to the point about the way humanity faces catastrophe: DiCaprio has a bathroom freakout, Lawrence orders an extra glass of wine, and Hill, playing an advisor to Streep’s president, has had it with end-of-the-world scenarios: “So boring.”

Don’t Look Up will have a limited theatrical release beginning December 10th, and will be on Netflix just in time for cheery Christmas viewing, on December 24th.
