When Is Don’t Look Up On Netflix?

Don’t Look Up is out in cinemas this December and fans want to know when it will land on Netflix. 

Don’t Look Up boasts an A-List cast with Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio and Meryl Streep starring. Dune’s Timothee Chalamet and pop sensation Ariana Grande are also involved.

The film tells the story of two low-level astronomers (J-Law and Leo) who must embark upon a media tour to warn the whole of mankind about a comet which is coming to destroy Earth. You can watch the trailer below. 


Don’t Look Up release date

Don’t Look Up lands in UK and US cinemas on Friday 10th December 2021 and it’s been confirmed that the movie will land on Netflix after. 

When will Don’t Look Up be released on Netflix?

Good news for those looking to snuggle up and watch a film in their new jim-jams this Christmas Eve - Don’t Look Up is scheduled for release on Netflix on 24th December.


Who’s in Don’t Look Up?

Leonardo DiCaprio will stars as Dr Randall Mindy, an astronomy professor who, along with his grad student Kate Dibiansky (Jennifer Lawrence), must warn the world about the life-threatening comet. Also in a starring role is Meryl Streep, who plays President Orlean.

The film also features:

  • Cate Blanchett as Brie
  • Timothee Chalamet as Yule
  • Rob Morgan as Dr. Oglethorpe
  • Jonah Hill as Jason, President Orlean’s son
  • Mark Rylance as Peter Isherwell
  • Tyler Perry as Jack
  • Ariana Grande as Riley Bina
  • Kid Cudi as DJ Chello

Is it worth watching?

The movie has so far received mixed reviews from critics, with an average rating of three stars. 

The Guardian’s Peter Bradshaw said it was "laboured, self-conscious and unrelaxed,” which resembled "a 145-minute Saturday Night Live sketch," as well as lacking in real comedy.


Meanwhile, other reviewers said it was “too close to home.” Metro’s Tori Brazier said: "Don't get me wrong, it's still engaging and even humorous at times, and boasts the star-studded cast of the year... However, seeing a very close alternative reality writ large and so realistically on the big screen is quite the mind trip after what we've endured the past 21 months, and it's almost a little too close to home to properly enjoy."

"McKay's [the writer] tone may be grating, even if you don't have to look far to see some version of what he's ranting about in the real world," said Variety’s Peter Debruge. "That makes Don't Look Up a different kind of disaster movie, where the threat isn't what's to come so much as the state of affairs as they now stand."

The Evening Standard put a more positive spin on the satire as Charlotte O’Sullivan said it was "totally worth looking up".

"Adults who grew up with Dr. Strangelove and/or Network will love the way McKay updates and tweaks those iconic epics. And a certain kind of teen will be transported by the presence of Ariana Grande,"
