The iconic duo of Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill are back with another epic film, Don’t Look Up. Only this time, it’s based on “true events that didn’t happen.” Based on a story by director Adam McKay, Don’t Look Up revolves around two low-ranking astronomers who are on a massive media tour to warn people of the approaching comet that could potentially destroy the planet. Unfortunately, only no one takes them seriously.

The clip showed astronomy professor Dr. Randall Mindy (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his student, Kate Dibiasky (Jennifer Lawrence), who tried to warn the world about the killer comet. They went from meeting the President of the United States, Janie Orlean (Meryl Streep), to appearing on morning news segments and even meeting pop star Ariana Grande, but ultimately failed. When the government finally hears them, they will focus more on making money than saving the world.
