American actor Leonardo DiCaprio has announced that he has signed a contract so that his last film, which is his hero, will be available on the “streaming” platform Netflix.
The film revolves around a comet threatening to end life on Earth, an idea that DiCaprio had an urgent analogy to the current climate crisis.
The dark irony of “Don’t Look For” features DiCaprio with Jennifer Lawrence, star of “The Hunger Games.”
In it, both are astronomers whose warnings of impending disaster fall on deaf ears in a country like the United States, which is starkly partisan and divided in plot, led by an incompetent president, played by Meryl Streep.
It seemed impossible
Speaking at the United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP26), in Glasgow, Scotland, DiCaprio noted that Adam McKay’s script solved what seemed “almost impossible” in a thriller about the climate crisis. Climate change that “evolves over a century”.
“How do we as a race, as a society, as a culture, politically deal with the impending Armageddon?” DiCaprio asked.
“MacKay analyzed the law, so to speak, on how a two-hour format has put into all the frenzy with which we as humankind are responding to this crisis,” he said.
The film, starring Ariana Grande, Timothée Chalamet, Cate Blanchett, Mark Rylance and Jonah Hill, arrives in cinemas worldwide on December 10, before it airs on Netflix.
DiCaprio said he hopes the film will “start to create a different dialogue,” but admitted he’s not too optimistic about humanity’s ability to solve the climate crisis.
“Especially after coming back from Glasgow and seeing compromises that could be changed by the next opaque administration that is getting in and out of the climate deal,” he warned.
After two weeks of negotiations, nearly 200 countries have reached a global agreement to combat climate change, but they have not achieved what science says is needed to contain the dangerous rise in temperatures.
“The planet has a very limited time. If we do nothing, we know the outcome,” DiCaprio said.

I’m going to compete in the Oscars
