If you thought you'd watched an all-star cast, wait until you see who's in Netflix's new movie, Don't Look Up. Forget The Avengers and Little Women, because we're not sure anything could top the streaming site's new production.
The sci-fi comedy movie has been written and produced by Anchorman's Adam McKay, alongside director and co-producer Kevin Messick, who also worked on the Academy Award winning Vice. But what do we know about the movie so far?
Is there a trailer for Netflix's Don't Look Up?
The latest trailer came in mid-November:
Netflix released the first teaser trailer and a clip from Don't Look Up in September 2021. The new teaser clip titled "Sit Tight and Assess" sees cast members Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence looking almost unrecognisable in their roles as astronomers Dr. Randall Mindy and Kate Dibiasky.
Working to warn the world of a comet threatening to destroy Earth, the pair sit down for a meeting in the White House alongside President Janie Orlean, played by Meryl Streep, and her son and Chief of Staff Jason Orlean (Jonah Hill).
The whole thing is equal parts tense and darkly funny, so we can't wait to see more. Watch the new teaser clip here:
Netflix also dropped the first official trailer for Don't Look Up at the start of September, and it's filled with suspense.
We see Leo, Jennifer, Meryl and Jonah in action again. Plus, keep your eyes peeled for other cast members Ariana Grande, Cate Blanchett and Timothée Chalamet popping up in the trailer - but it's fast-paced so blink and you'll miss it.

Who's been cast in Netflix's Don't Look Up?
TOO MANY PEOPLE TO LIST. Oh alright, then, we will.

Blimey.
Netflix have also treated us to some pictures of said-cast in action and, yep, we're officially excited.
Prior to releasing these new shots, Netflix had previously given fans a first-look at Leo and J Law in action in January this year, during their preview of all the amazing films coming to the streaming platform in 2021.
Then, in February we were treated to more some behind the scenes pictures from the set of Don't Look Up, and they're quite something. The pictures, published by JustJared, show Timothee Chalamet and Jennifer Lawrence engaged in some passionate PDA while filming a scene.
What's Netflix's Don't Look Up about?
The film follows a pair of astronauts who are trying to warn humanity that an asteroid is hurtling toward planet Earth and they only have six months left.
Empire previously reported that Leo and J Law will play the leads, a pair of low-level scientists who, upon discovering that a meteor will strike the Earth in six months, go on a media tour to try to warn the world, but find an unreceptive and unbelieving populace.
In February 2020, writer McKay spoke of his excitement to have Jennifer Lawrence onboard, telling Deadline, "I'm so thrilled to make this movie with Jen Lawrence. She's what folks in the 17th century used to call 'a dynamite talent'.
"And the fact that Netflix sees this movie as a worldwide comedy sets the bar high for me and my team in an exciting and motivating way."
When will Netflix's Don't Look Up be released?
Don't Look Up will be released on Netflix and in selected cinemas on 24 December 2021. The perfect Christmas treat, if you ask us. Exciting.
