Debuting as Netflix’s second most popular film ever, this apocalyptic parody film parallels society’s terrifying non-response to our current climate crisis. The star-studded cast includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Jonah Hill, Meryl Streep, Ariana Grande, and so many more.
Director Kate Marvel uses the metaphor of an impending world-killing comet to describe the reaction of the public, scientists, and policy-makers to climate change.
Marvel emphasizes using comedy to waken the public to extreme global issues. The success of Don’t Look Up has inspired her to pen a "climate change revenge movie where Liam Neeson punches a bunch of fossil fuel executives."
“Are we not being clear? We’re all 100% for sure gonna fxing die!”
-Leonardo DeCaprio (as Randall Mindy in Don’t Look Up)
Coming in hot with a doom & gloom statement, Leo has been a leading voice in climate activism for years. We recommend watching his speech at the UN Climate Summit.
