We brace ourselves for the end of the world with a look at an Oscar-nominated Netflix hit, the satirical black comedy “Don’t Look Up!”

Don't Look Up

The Spookshow Summer Disaster continues with “Don’t Look Up” (2021), the apocalyptic political satire black comedy from Adam McKay with an all-star cast!

Don’t Look Up tells the story of two astronomers attempting to warn humanity about an approaching comet that will destroy human civilization. The impact event is an allegory for climate change, and the film is a satire of government, politics, celebrity, and media indifference to the climate crisis.

Originally set for a theatrical release by Paramount Pictures, the distribution rights were acquired by Netflix several months later. Filming was initially set to begin in April 2020 in Massachusetts, but it was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic; it eventually began in November 2020 and wrapped in February 2021. It began a limited theatrical release on December 10, 2021, before streaming on Netflix on December 24.

It was praised for the cast’s performances and the musical score, but critics were divided on the merits of McKay’s satire. The film was received more positively by scientists, being named one of the top ten films of 2021 by the National Board of Review and the American Film Institute. It received four Academy Award nominations and set a new record for the most viewing hours in a single week on Netflix.
