Netflix releases first footage of ‘Don’t Look Up,’ starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence

Currently filming in Massachusetts, the star-studded comedy will be released on Netflix later this year.

“Don’t Look Up” is coming to Netflix sooner than you might think.

Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio, and the rest of the star-studded cast are still filming “Don’t Look Up” in Boston and other nearby towns, but the Adam McKay comedy will make its debut later this year, and Netflix has already released the first official footage from the movie.

A trailer posted by Netflix highlighting all of the original movies it will release in 2021 features a short scene from “Don’t Look Up,” which stars DiCaprio and Lawrence as two low-level astronomers who must embark on a massive media tour to warn the world about an approaching comet that will destroy the planet.

In the brief, dialogue-free footage, DiCaprio and Lawrence step off of a carrier plane onto an airport tarmac as uniformed personnel stroll by in the background.

So far, “Don’t Look Up” has filmed scenes in Boston, Canton, Chicopee, Fall River, Norton, Salisbury, Weymouth, and Worcester. Filmmakers shot scenes at Union Point in Weymouth, the former site of South Weymouth Naval Air Station, in December.

The streaming giant has not announced a specific release date for “Don’t Look Up.”

Along with DiCaprio and Lawrence, “Don’t Look Up” features Cate Blanchett (“Carol”), Rob Morgan (“Mudbound”), Meryl Streep (“The Iron Lady”), Jonah Hill (“The Wolf of Wall Street”), Chris Evans (“The Avengers”), Himesh Patel (“Yesterday”), Timothée Chalamet (“Little Women”), Matthew Perry (“Friends”), Tyler Perry (“Gone Girl”), Melanie Lynskey (“Togetherness”), Ron Perlman (“Sons of Anarchy”) Tomer Sisley (“We’re the Millers”), singer Ariana Grande, and rapper Kid Cudi.
