Don't Look Up is in the streamer's 2021 slate. Per Deadline, "The film follows two low-level astronomers who embark on a media tour to warn mankind of an approaching asteroid that will destroy Earth."

Don't Look Up is written and directed by Adam McKay, who's responsible for movies such as Vice, The Big Short, Anchorman, and Step Brothers. McKay revealed, "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."
