  Paul Feig has failed to get Harry Styles to star in 'a few' of his movies Paul Feig has revealed he's tried and failed to persuade Harry Styles to take on a role in several of his movies.The 'Bridesmaids' director asked the former One Direction star to play Henry Golding's role as Tom Webster in his 2019 rom-com 'Last Christmas' - which was set to the music of George Michael and Wham! - but he ultimately declined as he felt he was "too young" for the part of the ghost.

One of the final movies set to premiere before 2021 concludes is Netflix’s Don’t Look Up, featuring Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence in their first film appearances since Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and Dark Phoenix, respectively. The black comedy from Anchorman’s Adam McKay sees the actors playing low-level astronomers trying to warn the general public about an asteroid on a collision course with Earth. There’s a lot of anticipation surrounding Don’t Look Up, and now reviews for the movie have arrived.

So what do critics think about Don’t Look Up? To kick things off, Germain Lussier from Gizmodo was pleased with the Netflix movie, calling it “funny without being slapstick, dramatic without being melodramatic, and brutally honest about the state of the world.” But in Lussier’s mind, what truly made Don’t Look Up great was its “universal malleability” with its exploration of subject matter like climate change deniers and criticism of the media.

Carrie Coon found it 'surreal' starring with Ghostbusters legends

  Carrie Coon found it 'surreal' starring with Ghostbusters legends Carrie Coon admits that it was "surreal" to feature alongside 'Ghostbusters' icons such as Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson in the new film 'Ghostbusters: Afterlife'.The 40-year-old actress stars in the latest movie in the franchise as Callie Spengler – the daughter of the late Harold Ramis' Dr. Egon Spengler – and says she could hardly believe she was sharing screen time with original stars such as Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson.

Next, ScreenRant’s Mae Abdulbaki was also impressed with Don’t Look Up, commending both the story itself and the cast’s performances, with Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence’s costars including Meryl Streep, Jonah Hill, Tyler Perry, Timothée Chalamet and Ariana Grande, to name a few. Abdulbaki said that if The Big Short and Vice weren’t proof enough, Don’t Look Up sees Adam McKay “settling into the world of satire with great ease.”

Chris Evangelista from Slashfilm was much more critical towards Don’t Look Up, giving it a 4 out of 10 score and describing the Adam McKay-helmed movie as being “a smug, shrill, obvious satire that has nothing to say other than ‘Humanity is screwed.’” Evangelista thought the the story ideas in the movie aren’t bad, but they could have been done more justice with a different satirist.

Netflix Pulls Braggadocious Move And Orders TV Show About Blockbuster Video

  Netflix Pulls Braggadocious Move And Orders TV Show About Blockbuster Video After the last Blockbuster Video store closed, Netflix ordered a sitcom about the fallen video rental giant starring Randall Park.According to The Hollywood Reporter,  the streamer gave a straight-to-series series order for a workplace comedy based on the once-omnipresent video rental store, fittingly called Blockbuster. It would center around the last Blockbuster Video store located in the U.S. The comedy was given a 10-episode order, with WandaVision and Fresh Off the Boat alum Randall Park set as the series’ lead.

Finally, Empire’s Ian Freer stamped Don’t Look Up with 4 out of 5 stars. Freer felt Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence’s characters were “likable, if not especially complex” characters to follow along with in this insane story, and while he thought the movie might have had “too much going on, and not all of it works,” Adam McKay ultimately stuck the landing “beautifully.”

These are just some of the Don’t Look Up reviews that have been published, so you’re welcome to look around elsewhere on the interwebs to learn what other critics thought about the movie. We’ll have to wait and see how this movie ends up comparing to McKay’s prior, tonally-similar two movies, the aforementioned The Big Short and Vice, but either way, the filmmaker will be sticking around the streaming realm. It was announced today that Bad Blood, his movie with Jennifer Lawrence about Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes, will be housed at Apple.

Don’t Look Up’s limited theatrical release begins this Friday, December 10, followed by its Netflix premiere on December 24. Our December 2021 Netflix guide is available for those curious what else the platform is delivering in this year’s final weeks.
