“Don’t Look Up”, the new Netflix film available since December 24 has two post-credits scenes. If you’ve seen the first one, you probably missed the second. We tell you about it below. Obviously, this article contains spoilers on the end of the film!
Don’t Look Up is a hit on Netflix
Available since December 24 on Netflix, Don’t Look Up rose to number one in the platform’s top 10 most watched programs worldwide. This film directed by Adam McKay has an XXL cast, including Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep and Cate Blanchett.
In this satire, two astronomers (DiCaprio and Lawrence) embark on a media tour to warn humanity that a giant comet is about to destroy the Earth. But they will quickly find themselves confronted with the absurdities inherent in our time. Obviously, in its comical tone, Don’t Look Up is a violent criticism of our society, little concerned by environmental problems such as global warming.
You should be scared, I should be scared, because the climate crisis is the greatest threat in human history. And too often in our media, I don’t see or hear the urgency of this situation. So I wanted to talk about this emergency
Adam McKay told us (see the full interview).
Two post-credits scenes not to be missed
After the final sequence, strong in emotions, the film goes on to a first hilarious post-credits scene. Indeed, in the latter, we discover the survivors disembarking on a new planet to perpetuate humanity. Among them are the President of the United States (played by Meryl Streep) and businessman Peter Isherwell (Mark Rylance).
As soon as the vessel has landed, the president decides to go cuddle a strange colorful animal baptized “Bronteroc”. But the latter does not hear it that way, and kills her violently with pecks.
At the very end of the credits, a second scene is present. And you probably hadn’t seen her! Indeed, in the latter, we discover the character of Jonah Hill emerging from the rubble after the comet has passed. Lost, he first searches for his mother (the character of Meryl Streep) then pulls himself together, pulls out his phone, and records a video and says he is “the last man on earth” and asks internet users to “like and s. ‘subscribe’.
A final touch of humor that is very current.
