Netflix has announced that it will release “Don’t Look Up” in national theaters ahead of its streaming.
The film will be released on the big screen on December 9 and December 24 on the platform.
Streaming has chosen to release its major films before in theaters, as happened with “Red Alert”.
“Don’t Look Up” is a science fiction satire directed by Adam McKay (“The Big Bet”).
In the plot, astronomy student Kate Dibiasky (Jennifer Lawrence) and her teacher, Dr. Randall Mindy (Leonardo DiCaprio), discover that a comet is about to collide with Earth, but no one seems to care. Alerting humanity to the fatal impact of a boulder the size of Mount Everest will not be easy. Just six months after the crash, grabbing the attention of the media and a social media obsessed audience is proving to be an incredibly comical challenge – what will it take for the world to look up?
The large cast includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Rob Morgan, Jonah Hill, Mark Rylance, Tyler Perry, Timothée Chalamet, Ron Perlman, Ariana Grande, Scott Mescudi, Himesh Patel, Melanie Lynskey, Michael Chiklis, Tomer Sisley, Cate Blanchett and Meryl Streep.
