In the first seconds of the Do not seek first official trailer, Leonardo DiCaprio portrays all of our internal states as the world crumbles around us.
Dr. Randall Mindy (DiCaprio) hyperventilated in the bathroom, turning to the mirror to remember, “You are here now.” As his panic attack unfolds, we see footage of him working alongside Kate Dibiasky (Jennifer Lawrence) and get a brief glimpse of an extremely star-studded supporting cast that includes Cate Blanchett, Timothée Chalamet, Rob Morgan and Tyler Perry.
“Your breathing is stressing me out,” Jason Orlean (Jonah Hill) finally said during a meeting in the Oval Office with President Janie Orlean (Meryl Streep) to discuss something that, as Randall reminds Jason, “will affect the entire planet. “
“I know,” Jason scoffs, “but it’s, like, so stressful.”
What is so stressful? More stars scroll across the screen with anticipatory music playing in the background. Ariana Grande! Kid Cudi! Ron Perlman! Marc Rylance!
“There’s a comet heading straight for Earth,” Kate explains in the Oval Office.
“Do you know how many ‘the world is ending’ meetings we’ve had in the past two years? President Orleans retorts as his annoyed and clearly titled son rolls his eyes with a sigh.
“Drought, famine, hole in the ozone layer,” asks Jason. “It’s so boring.”

With the help of Dr Oglethorpe (Morgan), Kate and Randall embark on a media tour that takes them from the office of indifferent President Orlean (Streep) and her sycophantic son and chief of staff Jason (Hill) to the airwaves from The Daily Rip, an animated morning show hosted by Brie (Blanchett) and Jack (Perry) Just six months away from the comet’s impact, managing the 24-hour news cycle and grabbing the attention of obsessed audiences by social media before it’s too late is incredibly comical. “
