A new batch of Do not seek the pictures give us a better overview Meryl Streep as President of the United States and the star cast of Netflix’s Doomsday Dark Comedy. While Streep’s clearly Trump-inspired president was already featured in the film’s first teaser, EW new exclusive images also give a first look at Ron Perlman, Cate Blanchett, Tyler perry, revealing more details about their characters.
The new set of images shows Streep playing what appears to be a populist president, as she has seen him at public events waving and smiling and donning a hat with a slogan on it. Some photos are also included Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer lawrence like two low-level astronomers who discover a massive comet is heading for Earth, which could spell the end of humanity as we know it. Although the scientists of DiCaprio and Lawrence attempt to warn the world of the coming cataclysm, they must navigate the complex world of politics, where re-election is more important than truth. In addition, there will be no shortage of unbelievers who claim that the scientific discovery is just a hoax.
Blanchett and Perry play cable news hosts in the new footage, while Perlman is shown in full astronaut uniform. While the footage also shows many other cast members, their roles in the upcoming film are still unclear. The new images give a first look at Timothée Chalamet, Scott Mescudi (a.k.a Kid cudi), Ariana Grande, Rob morgan, Himesh Patel, Tomer sisley, and Melanie Lynskey. Jonas hill, who was shown in the first teaser and plays the president’s son, also returns to a photo taken during a White House meeting.
Realized by Adam mckay from a screenplay he wrote from a story by David Sirota, Do not seek the cast also includes Matthew Pear, Chris Evans, Marc Rylance, and Michel chiklis.
