Platform streaming Netflix, which this month releases titles like Mank of David Fincher (December 4), The Prom by Ryan Murphy (December 11) or midnight sky of George Clooney (December 23), and works Filled in Don’t Look Up, the new ‘sci-fi’ comedy from Adam McKay, director of The Big Bet (2015) and The Vice of Power (2018). His next film is headlined by Oscar winners Jennifer Lawrence (The Bright Side of Things) and Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant) and Twitter have already begun to circulate the first images of the filming set in Boston, USA.
Scripted by McKay, the sci-fi satire doesn’t just feature Lawrence and DiCaprio in its cast. Also featured in it, hold on, Meryl Streep (Let Them Talk), Cate Blanchett (Mrs. America), Jonah Hill (The Beach Bum), Timothée Chalamet (The French Chronicle), Ariana Grande (Sam and Cat), Matthew Perry (Friends), Ron Perlman (The Truth about the Harry Quebert Affair) and Himesh Patel (Tenet).
TWO ASTRONOMERS, A TOUR AND AN ASTEROID
What is it about? Well, basically two low-level astronomers who must undertake a gigantic media tour to alert and convince humanity that an asteroid is approaching Earth. As you can see in these lines, the most remarkable thing about the images is the appearance that both Lawrence and DiCaprio look like, characterized as Dr. Randall Mindy and as Kate Dibiasky, respectively. She, with a redhead and bangs. He, with glasses, wavy hair, and even a goatee.
After the surprisingly real The Big Gamble – on the 2008 global financial crisis – and the Vice of Power – on the figure of US Vice President Dick Cheney -, in addition to the previous Los Amos de la Noticias (2013), Los Otros dos ( 2010) and Hermanos for Pelotas (2008), surely McKay will surprise us again with another irreverent feature that is both ingenious and timely.
