It's been a while since we've seen Jennifer Lawrence on our screens in anything new.
After being nominated for the Best Actress Oscar four times in six years, Lawrence has been much more absent from the big screen than in the early-mid 2010s, during which she had blockbuster roles in The Hunger Games franchise, Silver Linings Playbook (for which she won the Oscar in 2013), American Hustle and Joy.
The last time we saw Lawrence was in 2019, briefly, for X Men: Dark Phoenix and before that 2018's Red Sparrow.
And the Kentucky native has also been working on several film projects behind the scenes, including the upcoming Netflix movie Don't Look Up.
Here's everything we know:
Who else is starring with Jennifer Lawrence in Don't Look Up?
The Oscar winner and newlywed will be joined by Ariana Grande (who famously does an incredible impression of Lawrence) and will be returning to her acting roots. Grande's involvement was announced the same day she revealed her sixth album would be released this month.
Fellow Oscar winners/Hollywood legends joining the cast also include Leonardo DiCaprio (in his first Netfix foray), Meryl Streep and Cate Blanchett.
It doesn't end there.
Timothee Chalamet is joining the cast, as too is Friends alum Matthew Perry, rapper Kid Cudi.
Plus DiCaprio will have a Wolf of Wall Street reunion with Jonah Hill.

Honestly, we've not been excited about a cast like this since Little Women with movie industry website Deadline hailing it as 'one of the best ensembles in recent memory'.
What is Jennifer Lawrence's new Netflix movie Don't Look Up about?
First announced in February 2020, Don't Look Up is described as a comedy which 'tells the story of two low-level astronomers, who must go on a giant media tour to warn mankind of an approaching asteroid that will destroy planet earth'.
It's being directed and written by Adam McKay who is known for clever, relevant films like Vice and The Big Short as well as cult comedies like Anchorman and Step Brothers and was formerly a head writer at Saturday Night Live.
'I’m so thrilled to make this movie with Jen Lawrence. She’s what folks in the 17th century used to call "a dynamite act,"' McKay said in a statement. '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 Don't Look Up be released on Netflix?
Filming is slated to begin before the end of the year.
