    Netflix also premiered a teaser for “Red Notice” during Olympics coverage last week that made no ripples online and was never posted after the fact, so… I wouldn’t hold my breath to be honest.

    That looks like a regular comedy, not an Oscar Comedy.

    I dunno, we saw like…10 seconds so hard to say. It was different than what I expected just from the script. Maybe we really can just throw out that script that circulated for this one? (If so…good. Thank god)

    We’ll I’m predisposed to doubting Don’t Look Up so I’ll stick to the positive I can come up with from this teeny teaser which doesn’t tell us much anyway:

    Leo looks good? People like him doing comedy—like in WoWS—because he rarely does it. So…yeah he looks good!

    That Jonah Hill line was in the script we read (I think), but that’s all we can tell I guess lol.

    Why would they sell an Oscar comedy as an Oscar comedy? Of course they’re going to sell it as a regular hilarious comedy to get general audiences more excited.

    DiCaprio’s performance seems really showy. Even more so than what the script and test screenings suggested.

    Gotta say I am excited about seeing Leo as a spineless coward. It’s pretty cool! But omg that millisecond of Streep gave me a tiny nightmare though because I’m not at all excited to see her do a super on-the-nose, calculated villain portrayal (Hepburn’s comment about seeing the wheels turning was really spot-on, eh?) But, again, I’m basing this on nothing lol so don’t worry, I know how silly the Streep-fear sounds.

    Question for those who read the original Don’t Look Up script was the teaser reminiscent of the script you read?

    I suppose you could CTRL + F a line from the teaser: “I know but it is like so stressful”

    Jonah Hill’s lines were in the draft that I read and Leo’s scene in the bathroom was there, but that’s all I could tell from it

    I know it’s just a 30-second teaser, but this movie looks like my kryptonite lmao. Even as someone who liked The Big Short and thought Vice was decent, there’s something about this that makes me cringe. Maybe the film will be a lot different, I dunno. I thought the original draft was way too cluttered and it annoyed the snot out of me. I don’t doubt the Academy will eat it up, but goddamn this looks like a steaming hot plate of bullshit to me

    It’s a Netflix movie. It does not matter one bit what general audiences think of the movie because general audiences only need to play three minutes of the movie for Netflix to count it towards viewership numbers, and even then no one has access to those numbers so they can just say it’s a hit and no one can contradict them.

    I actually don’t get why people would dismiss Don’t Look Up from the line of reasoning that it’s TOO much of a comedy. That’s OK! If anyone can get a comedy in, it’s this cast + Adam McKay and frankly, his comedies are REALLY good! If it opens the door to Oscars finally taking possible-slapstick comedy seriously, what’s so wrong with that? I don’t see that as a reason to dismiss it as an Oscar film, when WoWS was so blatantly comedic. So was The Big Short for that matter. I mean sure they were about bigger things like corruption, wealth, fraud, the financial crisis, but so is Don’t Look Up. Yeah it can be as comedic as it wants, really.

    Netflix doesn’t care if people watch their movies for 3 minutes. They care that people subscribe to their service. And this will be their biggest subscriber draw of the year. What general audiences think about this movie is extremely important, because they want general audiences to subscribe to Netflix to be able to watch this movie. So they’re going to sell it like a hilarious comedy with the biggest stars in the world.
