'Don't Look Up' synopsis and ensemble cast


The teaser clip for Don't Look Up was released in September, definitely hyping everyone up with its brilliant cast. The short clip was then followed by an official trailer that dropped earlier this month giving a better look into the hilarious drama that viewers will get to see.

The official synopsis for Netflix's Don't Look Up reads:

"Kate Dibiasky, an astronomy grad student, and her professor Dr. Randall Mindy make an astounding discovery of a comet orbiting within the solar system. The problem — it’s on a direct collision course with Earth. The other problem? No one really seems to care. With only six months until the comet makes impact, managing the 24-hour news cycle and gaining the attention of the social media obsessed public before it’s too late proves shockingly comical — what will it take to get the world to just look up?!”
