Leonardo DiCaprio Stars in Netflix's Don't Look Up

Leonardo DiCaprio is back on Netflix in the satirical sci-fi film Don't Look Up. The black comedy offers a unique take on how the world might react to an impending apocalypse scenario. 

Don't Look Up features an all-star ensemble cast including Jennifer Lawrence, Rob Morgan, Jonah Hill, Mark Rylance, Tyler Perry, Timothée Chalamet, Ron Perlman, Ariana Grande, and Meryl Streep. It marked Adam McKay's second directorial film for Netflix after 2018's Vice.

DiCaprio plays Dr. Randall Mindy, an astronomy professor who makes the shocking discovery of a comet orbiting within the solar system. He and his student Kate Dibiasky, played by Lawrence, attempt to warn humankind of the approaching comet that will destroy planet Earth. 

However, they struggle to get the attention of an apathetic president, played by Streep, and her incompetent son and chief of staff, played by Hill and Perry. The film highlights the absurdity of politics, media, and celebrity getting in the way of an actual life or death situation.

DiCaprio embraced the over-the-top nature of the film, delivering an amusing performance as the frazzled, eccentric scientist shouting warnings into the void. It marks his fifth collaboration with award-winning director McKay.

Don't Look Up premiered in theaters on December 10, 2021 and began streaming on Netflix on December 24. The film was nominated for four Academy Awards and DiCaprio received nominations at several critics awards for his role. Viewers can currently stream Don't Look Up exclusively on Netflix to catch DiCaprio's latest big screen performance.
