“They are two very sincere astronomers who make the discovery of their life, which is that a killer asteroid is heading towards Earth. They have to warn everyone and they have to go on a media tour. They are dealing with our world. It’s them dealing with their Twitter equivalent. It’s them dealing with the political landscape. It’s them dealing with talk shows and how they’re perceived. It’s DiCaprio, Lawrence, and Rob Morgan trying to warn the world. I call it a dark comedy. “, explained the director to New York Times.
“That’s how it started. But then the pandemic came along. What it did was bring out what the movie is really about, which is how we communicate with each other. We can’t even talk to each other anymore. We can’t even agree. So it’s about climate change, but at its root it’s about what the Internet does, what mobile phones do, what the modern world has done with the way we communicate, “he added.
