If you are one of the few who have not yet seen ‘Don’t look up’, be careful because this article is loaded with SPOILERS!
Adam McKay, the director of ‘Don’t look up’, has revealed that the famous post-credits scene of the Netflix movie was very different in its origin.
The apocalyptic film ended in a rather dark way, with the comet finally colliding with Earth and destroying most of humanity. However, a wealthy few manage to escape the chaos in a spaceship. More than 22,000 years later, in a sequence after the credits, they are seen arriving on a new planet, in which President Orlean (Meryl Streep) is savagely eaten by an alien creature.
However, according to Adam McKay, that scene was initially in a different form, involving several billionaires, including Peter Isherwell (Mark Rylance), trying to compete with each other with absolutely exorbitant sums of money. “The ending was something like, ‘Oh! Let’s start building our houses. ‘”, explains the director to Variety. “And then someone would say, ‘Oh! But the capsule carrying the workers exploded. ‘ To which Mark Rylance added: ‘I will give a billion dollars to anyone who builds a house for me.’ And a guy next to him would say: ‘I’ll give you two billion dollars.’ And so you were realizing that they are all billionaires. They keep saying, ‘I’ll give five billion dollars! Ten thousand millions!’ Finally, we end up eliminating all that. “
Reflecting on whether Orlean’s death spells doom for the other travelers, McKay went on to suggest: “Does it mean that everyone in each of the ships is eaten by tarocs font? Actually, yes. I think so”.
Recall that Orlean’s violent death was predicted in advance via Isherwell’s BASH algorithm, and McKay revealed that the character’s need to know how he died was actually Meryl Streep’s own idea. “We were shooting the scene with Rylance, Meryl and Jonah [Hill] in the BASH control room for the second launch “, he remembered.
“I was thinking, ‘We should play. Why don’t you talk about something? You never know. Something interesting might come up. ‘ And Meryl, who is a great improviser, said, ‘I want to know how I’m going to die!’
His teammates, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence, recently reflected on the ending of “Don’t Look Up,” which the former has referred to as “a slap in the face.”
