'Don't Look Up': How to Watch Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence's New Movie Online

Viewers looking for Adam McKay's new movie Don't Look Up have plenty of options on how to watch.

Jennifer Lawrence and Leonardo DiCaprio star as scientists warning everyone about a comet heading directly towards earth. Unfortunately, the likes of Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett and Jonah Hill play characters who struggle to believe it's going to happen.

The movie is one of the most anticipated blockbusters of the year, and is getting a dual cinematic and streaming release.

Here's how you can watch Don't Look Up in a movie theater or from home.

How to watch Don't Look Up

Don't Look Up is arriving in a limited number of movie theaters across the world on Friday December 10, 2021. This is the first stage of the movie's two-part release schedule.

Those hoping to watch the film from the comfort of their own home have a longer wait ahead of them.

Don't Look Up is a Netflix original movie and will land on the streaming service on Christmas Eve, Friday December 24, 2021.

It used to be that movies had to have a theatrical release to be eligible for the Academy Awards but for the second year in a row the Oscars have announced that all streaming movies can be considered. The cinematic release for streaming exclusives are now likely a marketing ploy to generate buzz ahead of its release online.

Don't Look Up was originally scheduled for a 2020 release but like many others was delayed due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.
