Jennifer Lawrence and Anchorman Director Team for Netflix's Giant Meteor Comedy
Anchorman director Adam McKay is finally returning to the world of comedy with his latest movie, Don't Look Up. The project has been scooped up by Netflix, with the streaming service putting it on the fast track. What's more, Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence has been tapped to lead the cast.

Don't Look Up centers on two low-level astronomers who must go on a giant media tour to warn mankind of an approaching asteroid that will destroy planet earth. Jennifer Lawrence will presumably play one of the astronomers. No other cast members have been confirmed at this time, but filming is set to begin in April, which means we will likely see the movie debut sometime in 2021. Adam McKay had this to say about it in a statement.

Jennifer Lawrence Plans Major 2020 With Adam McKay-Netflix Comedy, A24 Drama
Jennifer Lawrence has kept a relatively low profile since the one-two punch of “mother!” and “Red Sparrow,” but that’s soon about to change as the actress has a major 2020 lined up. Netflix has announced the acquisition of Adam McKay’s upcoming comedy “Don’t Look Up,” which will star the “Silver Linings Playbook” Oscar winner in the leading role. The film marks a return to comedy for the “Anchorman” and “Talladega Nights” director after his Oscar-winning economic and political dramas “The Big Short” and “Vice.” The project is also a first for Lawrence, who has proven to be a hilarious riot on press tours but has yet to flex her comedy acting muscles so overtly on the big screen.

“Don’t Look Up” will star Lawrence as a low-level astronomer who discovers along with her partner that a giant asteroid is heading toward earth and will destroy it. The

‘Downhill’ reviews: Does it do ‘everything right,’ or are you better off watching the original ‘Force Majeure’?
Happy Valentine’s Day from “Downhill,” the comedy about a couple on the rocks — or on thin ice, as may be a more apt metaphor — that opened on February 14. But what do critics think of this remake of the 2014 Swedish comedy “Force Majeure“? It’s directed by Oscar winners Nat Faxon and Jim Rash (“The Descendants“), co-written by them and Emmy winner Jesse Armstrong (“Succession“), and stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell. That’s quite a pedigree.

As of this writing the film has a MetaCritic score of 50 based on 32 reviews counted thus far: 13 positive, 18 somewhat mixed, and 1 outright negative. Over on Rotten Tomatoes it has a freshness rating of 47% based on 74 reviews, 39 of which are classified as negative. The Rt critics’ consensus summarizes the reviews by saying, “Fittingly named for a remake whose charms are dwarfed by its superior source material, ‘Downhill’ is frequently — and frustratingly — less than the sum of its talented parts.

10 Funniest Judd Apatow Comedies, According To IMDb

Filmmaker Judd Apatow largely made a name for himself with the production of the cult teen "dramedy" show Freaks and Geeks. 1995's Heavyweights and fan-favorite The Cable Guy from '96 helped put him on the map in the realm of movies. Yet, it was the breakout hits Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and The 40-Year-Old Virgin in the early 2000s that made him a major player in comedy films.

Will Todd Phillips (‘Joker’) and Jay Roach (‘Bombshell’) be the latest comic directors to win Oscars by getting serious?

Will Todd Phillips (‘Joker’) and Jay Roach (‘Bombshell’) be the latest comic directors to win Oscars by getting serious?
Winning an Oscar is no laughing matter, which is perhaps why so many comedy directors have turned to more serious subject matter to strike gold in recent years. Like Adam McKay (“The Big Short” and “Vice”) and Peter Farrelly (“Green Book“) before them, Todd Phillips (“Joker”) and Jay Roach (“Bombshell”) could be the latest to enter the awards race for proving their mettle in dramas.

Phillips is the man behind raunchy laffers like “Road Trip” (2000), “Old School” (2003) and the “Hangover” trilogy (2009-2013). Now he’s in the Oscar conversation this year for co-writing and directing the dark DC Comics origin story “Joker.” Meanwhile, Roach is remembered for helming the first two “Meet the Parents” movies (2000 and 2004) and all three “Austin Powers” films (1997-2002). Now he’s getting buzz for the Fox News sex scandal drama “Bombshell.”
