Netflix’s new movie, Don’t Look Up, has been the talk of social media over the last week.

The movie dropped on Christmas Eve and already has made quite the impression.

It has a huge star studded cast with the likes of DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Rob Morgan, and Jonah Hill.

It even stars Cate Blanchett and Meryl Streep!

Without giving any spoilers…

The movie is about 2 astronomers (DiCaprio and Lawrence) who are attempting to warn the world about a comet coming towards Earth that will completely destroy the planet.

But, the issue is, nobody will take them seriously.

When the trailer initially dropped, people could not wait to get a glimpse at the whole thing.

But, now they finally can, it received mixed opinions…

Some viewers took to Twitter to share praise for the movie.

While others were less eager to applaud it.

It’s safe to say the reviews weren’t all favorable.
