As of Friday, December 10, Don’t Look Up is showing in select theaters across the United States, giving audiences their first opportunity to see the new Adam Mckay satirical end-of-the-world comedy starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence. The movie, which also features Meryl Streep, Jonah Hill, and a who’s who of today’s Hollywood, will soon be getting the streaming treatment, and thankfully it will be here long before the world comes to an end.
That’s right, you will soon be able to watch Don’t Look Up from the comfort, er, safety of your own home, and here’s everything you need to know to get on your way...
When And Where Can You Watch Don’t Look Up Streaming?
Starting, Friday, December 24 (Christmas Eve), anyone with an active Netflix subscription will be able to watch Don’t Look Up streaming, as Adam McKay’s newest dark comedy will be streaming exclusively on the popular platform. So, when you’re trying to avoid the family on Christmas Eve or looking for a new, non-holiday movie to watch with them, open up Netflix on your preferred streaming device and press play to take in the hilarious and maddening circus ride that is Don’t Look Up.
What Don’t Look Up Is About
In the event you haven’t heard, Don’t Look Up is about two low-level astronomers named Dr. Randall Mindy (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Dr. Kate Dibiasky (Jennifer Lawrence) who have been given the unenviable task of trying to warn humanity of an approaching comet that is on a collision course with Earth. But since this is an Adam McKay movie (like The Big Short and Vice before it), United States President Janie Orlean (Meryl Streep) and the national media don’t take the crisis all that seriously, the pair have a hard road ahead of them.
And with a cast that also includes Jonah Hill, Rob Morgan, Mark Rylance, Tyler Perry, Cate Blanchett, Timothée Chalamet, and multiple other great actors, expect a lot of talent on screen with this one.
What Critics Are Saying About Don’t Look Up
Still not sold on Don’t Look Up at this point? Well, early reviews of Adam McKay’s latest offering have already started to surface, and CinemaBlend recently published a roundup of what a handful of critics have to say. One of those reviews, which comes from ScreenRant’s Mae Abdulbaki, made note of the film’s satirical tone as well as the balance between unsettling drama and comedy, saying:
Other reviews pointed out that Don’t Look Up probably won’t be well received by everyone but were quick to point out that director Adam McKay’s messages about the dangers of Climate Change and society’s response were impactful.

Philip grew up in Louisiana (not New Orleans) before moving to St. Louis after graduating from Louisiana State University-Shreveport. When he's not writing about movies or television, Philip can be found being chased by his three kids, telling his dogs to stop yelling at the mailman, or yelling about professional wrestling to his wife. If the stars properly align, he will talk about For Love Of The Game being the best baseball movie of all time.
