Hyperventilating in a bathroom, the actor Leonardo Dicaprio sing repeatedly “You are here now” in the opening moments of the trailer for Netflix from a new movie that portrays a fictional comet that threatens Earth.
We only have a few glimpses of what to expect from “Don’t Look Up”, which opens in theaters 10th of December and reaches Netflix all over the world the Dec. 24. For one thing, we still don’t know what the comet is made of, how big it is, or its chances of hitting Earth.
But it doesn’t look good for humanity so far in this trailer. Military jets fly over US Capitol, nationwide protests erupt, astronomer Kate Dibiasky (Jennifer Lawrence) gaze tensely at the sky from the streets of the city of New York.
What is it about “Do not look up”
The astronomy student Kate Dibiasky (Jennifer Lawrence) and his teacher, the Dr. Randall Mindy (Leonardo Dicaprio), make the astonishing discovery of an asteroid orbiting within the solar system.
The problem is that it is about to collide with Earth. The other problem is that nobody seems to care. It turns out that alerting humanity to the fateful collision of a rock the size of the Mount Everest it is considered inconvenient news.
With the help of Dr. Oglethorpe (Rob Morgan), Kate and Randall embark on a colossal media tour that takes them from President Orlean’s office (Meryl Streep) —Who remains indifferent— and his flattering son and chief of staff Jason (Jonah Hill), until it aired on The Daily Rip, a lively morning show featuring hosts Brie (Cate Blanchett) and Jack (Tyler Perry).
They have only six months before the asteroid hits, and their mission to navigate the complicated 24-hour news cycle and get the attention of the social media-obsessed public before it’s too late proves to be more comical than it is. they imagined. What do you have to do to make the world turn its head and decide to look up?
“Your breathing is stressing me out,” US President Jason Orlean’s son and chief of staff (played by Jonah Hill) tells astronomer Randall Mindy (DiCaprio) in the Oval Office during a meeting to discuss the looming threat. .
“Don’t Look Up” is directed by Adam McKay from “Ant-Man” and “The Big Short“(both from 2015); this will be his first major space movie. The movie also marks at least the fourth time that DiCaprio and Hill appear in the same production, after “Django Unchained” (2012), “Wolf“(2013) and”The Wolf of Wall Street” (2013).
The main actors have a remarkable experience in space films between them; DiCaprio was the narrator of the film IMAX from 2010 “Hubble” and Lawrence was a journalist stranded aboard an interstellar ship in “Passengers“from 2016.
Don’t look up
“Don’t Look Up” follows decades of Hollywood heritage of actors who find every possible way to rid themselves of looming threats from comets and asteroids.
Some of the most famous movie links include “Armageddon“from 1998 starring Bruce Willis and a set of fictional oil drillers turned astronauts, “Deep Impact“from 1998 with a young man Elijah Wood (Frodo’s 2001-03 “Lord of the Rings” trilogy), “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World“from 2012 with Steve Carell of fame from “The Office”, and “Greenland” from 2020 that followed in the aftermath of the arrival of a fictional interstellar comet.
In real life, NASA plans a launch in 2022 to send a spacecraft called DART (Double asteroid redirection test) to finally crash into the asteroid’s moon Didymos, as an asteroid deflection test in the future. The agency also participates in preventative activities through its Planetary Defense Coordination Office, which searches for potentially dangerous asteroids through a network of telescopes and partner agencies.
Asteroid science evolves rapidly. For example, in early 2021, a potentially threatening asteroid named Apophis it left its dangerous state for at least the next 100 years after new observations that refined its predicted orbit.
Fortunately, ongoing observations of comets and asteroids show no imminent threats to our planet, but astronomers are still looking just in case.
