Netflix is taking the competition in the entertainment industry seriously, and they've got some of the biggest films coming to the platform this year.
Among these films is Jennifer Lawrence and Leonardo DiCaprio's 'Don't Look Up,' which's set to tackle another end of the world narrative in a hilarious way.
Here is everything you should know.
'Don’t Look Up' is heading to Netflix this year, the streamer announced through an intense preview that promises new films every week for the whole year!
We still don't know exactly when, but it's nice to get a confirmation that it will be coming in 2021.
Take a look at the Netflix 2021 movie preview below, and get ready to get hyped with all the big films coming to the platform.
We already know that Jennifer Lawrence and Leonardo DiCaprio are portraying the lead roles for 'Don't Look Up.' The two have been pictured in the set at South Station in Boston on December 1, 2020.
This is the first time for Titanic's DiCaprio to star in a Netflix film.
Joining them are other A-listers Cate Blanchett, Timothée Chalamet, Ariana Grande, Matthew Perry, Tyler Perry, Kid Cudi, Jonah Hill, Himesh Patel, Tomer Sisley, Ron Perlman, Melanie Lynskey, Rob Morgan, Chris Evans, and more.
Speaking about Lawrence's casting for the lead role, writer and director Adam McKay said:
"I'm so thrilled to make this movie with Jen Lawrence. She's what folks in the 17th century used to call 'a dynamite act.'"
'Don't Look Up' will see Lawrence and DiCaprio as two low-level astronomers who must go on a giant media tour to warn humans of an approaching comet that will destroy planet Earth in six months.
Don't worry, this isn't as heavy as it sounds. 'Don't Look Up' is actually a political satire disaster comedy, and we're pretty sure McKay will deliver an outstanding take on the film.
McKay is the former head writer at 'Saturday Night Live' and is behind hilariously relevant 'Anchorman,' 'Step Brothers,' 'Vice,' and 'The Big Short.'
Speaking about the film, McKay said:
"The fact that Netflix sees this movie as a worldwide comedy sets the bar high for me and my team in an exciting and motivating way."
On the other hand, Netflix is equally thrilled about McKay's work.
"Adam has always had great timing when it comes to making smart, relevant, and irreverent films that depict our culture." Netflix's Head of Film, Scott Stuber, said.
He added: "Even if he somehow ends up predicting planet Earth's imminent demise, we're excited to add this to our slate before it all comes to an end."
Netflix is yet to release the official trailer for 'Don’t Look Up,' but we're sure it will be here pretty soon. We'll update this page once we get the official trailer. In the meantime, here's a behind the scene photo of the film.
