In the clip, DiCaprio is seen having a panic attack prior to a White House meeting with the president, portrayed by the one and only Meryl Streep, in which he warns about an asteroid on a collision course with Earth.

Once inside the Oval Office meeting, DiCaprio is joined by his astronomy grad student, played by a red-haired Jennifer Lawrence.

Despite getting the doomsday news, Streep doesn’t seem overly concerned.

“Do you know how many ‘the world is ending’ meetings we’ve had over the last two years?” she says to DiCaprio and Lawrence. Her chief of staff, played by Jonah Hill, then answers the question by listing: “Drought, famine, hole in the ozone. It’s so boring.”

Written and directed by Adam McKay (The Big Short, Vice), the satire also features appearances by Tyler Perry, Timothee Chalamet, Ariana Grande, Kid Cudi, Mark Rylance and Cate Blanchett.

Earlier this year, Lawrence suffered an on-set accident after filming a scene inside a restaurant in which a window was expected to explode. Apparently something went wrong and shards of glass cut the Oscar winner’s face, noted TMZ.

The incident occurred during a “controlled glass explosion” and production was halted for the day.

“Don’t Look Up” will hit select theaters on Dec. 10th before streaming on Netflix on Dec. 24th.
