Don’t Look Up first official trailer: Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence warn of an approaching comet while Meryl Streep dazzles as the President of the United States and Ariana Grande plays a dippy pop star

The first official trailer for the December film Don’t Look Up was released on Tuesday morning.

In the clip, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence play astronomers who are seen desperately trying to warn not only the United States government but also civilians that a ‘planet killing’ comet is heading toward earth. 

The cast is superb with Meryl Streep as the President of the United States and Jonah Hill as her aide. 

Plenty of supporting stars are also seen including Cate Blanchett, Kid Cudi, Tyler Perry, Chris Evans, Timothee Chalamet and Ariana Grande in the disaster film with a twist of dark comedy.

Star studded: The cast is superb with Meryl Streep as the President of the United States and Jonah Hill as her aide

Flaky lady: ‘I hear there is something you don’t like the looks of,’ says a very casual Streep

Prez: She plays President Janie Orlean. Meryl is almost unrecognizable in long bleach blonde hair with a red suit on as she stands in the oval office of the White House

Leo keeps saying over and over, ‘This is not real’ as he sounds terrified and desperate.

‘Tell me this isn’t really happening,’ says a sweaty and frightened Leo to Jennifer at a bar. 

The two are seen in an empty airplane as they are taken to Washington DC to share their information.

‘I hear there is something you don’t like the looks of,’ says a very casual Streep who is almost unrecognizable in long bleach blonde hair with a red suit on as she stands in the oval office of the White House.

Mr Serious: ‘We discovered a very large comet,’ said Leo, who is dressed casually as he sits next to Lawrence

No one takes them seriously: ‘It’s headed directly towards earth,’ says Jennifer’s astronomer who has red hair with heavy bangs as she wears a gray bomber jacket and mustard colored top

She plays President Janie Orlean. 

‘We discovered a very large comet,’ said Leo, who is dressed casually in a plaid shirt and green blazer as he sits next to Lawrence.

‘Ohhhh, good for you,’ says Streep’s President as if it is a cute thing, clearly not taking it seriously.

‘It’s headed directly towards earth,’ says Jennifer’s astronomer who has red hair with heavy bangs.

Not a fan of them: Hill is in a blue suit and red tie as he looks on at the astronomers as if he is annoyed

‘At this moment I say we sit tight and assess,’ says Streep, not worried about the impending doom the astronomers are warning her about.

Leak it: Leonardo and Jennifer decide to ‘leak’ the information to the public to prepare them for the comet

‘Our guests made a pretty big discovery in space,’ says Cate as news anchor Brie Evantee in a red dress with white blonde hair. 

Her co-anchor Jack Bremmer, played by Tyler, takes the interview lightly as he makes a joke about his ex-wife’s house blowing up.

Jennifer walks off set in a huff after saying, ‘There’s a 100% chance we’re all going to die!’ The vapid anchors then mock her.

‘We’re going to get the news out there one way or another,’ says Leo, determined to take action as he grows increasingly outraged by the stupidity of the people he is talking to.

Next astronauts are seen heading to the comet to presumably blow it up.

Then Leo is seen talking to Ariana, who plays dippy pop singer Riley Bina who has her entourage with her.

Not smart: ‘You guys discovered a comet? I have a tattoo of a shooting star on my back,’ she says proudly as DiCaprio looks horrified at her stupidity

Timothee is seen as a slacker who seems impressed with Lawrence: ‘You’re that girl from TV who said we’re all going to die?’ 

Instead of asking her about the comet, he takes a selfie with her, which disgusts her.

The film will be released in theaters on December 10 and on Netflix’s streaming service on December 24.

It’s possible that a comet or asteroid could come close to or even hit earth.

Last week it was reported that an asteroid the size of the Eiffel Tower will race past the Earth next month, travelling at 14,714 miles per hour, before being flung back into deep space.

It won’t be very close in terrestrial terms, coming 2.5 million miles from the planet – or about ten times farther than the moon – so will pose no threat to us.

However, the ‘vaguely egg-shaped’ 4660 Nereus is classed as a Potentially Hazardous Asteroid by NASA because it is 1,082ft long and crosses Earth’s orbit.

In time for the holidays: The film from director Adam McKay will be released in theaters on December 10 and on Netflix’s streaming service on December 24

It will make its ‘close approach’ on December 11, before hurtling back out on its long orbit around the sun, returning in 2060 where it will be 750,000 miles away.

These relatively close approaches, and its significant size, have led to a number of failed proposals for robotic missions to explore the rock as it hurtles past the Earth.

Nereus is an Apollo-class asteroid, with an orbit that puts it in a fairly regular close proximity to Earth, orbiting the sun half as often as the Earth does.

This puts it in the small group of larger space rocks ideal for exploration, with a mission reaching the space rock, gathering samples, and returning in four years.

A number of missions have already been planned, but so far none have happened.
