Leonardo DiCaprio-Jennifer Lawrence Starrer Don’t Look Up Sets Netflix’s Viewership Records

‘Don’t Look Up’ on Netflix seems to have not impressed the critics but, rather put itself across brilliantly for the audience. Starring an ensemble cast that consists of Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Jonah Hill, Cate Blanchett, Ariana Grande, Timothee Chalamet and several others, the film is a climate change satire that has now set some really heavy Netflix viewership records.

Adam McKay’s satire ‘Don’t Look Up’ is right up there on top of Netflix’s global viewership chart for December 27-January 2, clocking 152.29 million hours globally during the week. Figures released by Netflix, and reported by ‘Deadline’, show that at a time when apocalyptic films are breaking world records, the Leonardo DiCaprio-Jennifer Lawrence-starrer is the streamer’s third-most-watched film of all time (in just its first 28 days), behind only the Sandra Bullock-helmed ‘Bird Box’ and Dwayne Johnson-Ryan Reynolds-Gal Gadot crime caper ‘Red Notice’.

It has also become the film that has attracted the most viewing hours for a movie in a single week in Netflix’s history. Just on Wednesday, director McKay tweeted that he was “straight-up flabbergasted” by the viewing numbers the film was receiving. Netflix doesn’t release day-to-day data, but ‘Don’t Look Up’, according to ‘Deadline’, is likely to be encroaching upon ‘Bird Box’ territory and could soon take the all-time record away from ‘Red Notice’.

‘Don’t Look Up’ also has Meryl Streep, playing a goofy American President, Cate Blanchett as a celebrity talk show co-host who lusts after the DiCaprio character, Dr Randall Mindy, a professor of astronomy at the Michigan State University (MSU). British Indian actor Himesh Jitendra Patel, last seen in ‘Tenet’, also appears in the film as the boyfriend of the Jennifer Lawrence character, MSU astronomy doctoral candidate and comet discoverer Kate Dibiasky.
