While the film continues to divide audiences and critics, “Don’t Look Up” continues to climb the Netflix charts, this week officially becoming the streamer’s second most successful movie of all time. The film added 58.2 million hours viewed globally across the week January 2-9. That takes it to 321,520,000 total viewing hours since it debuted online December 24, meaning it has overtaken Bird Box (282,020,000 hours) as the second most popular pic on Netflix. The metrics are calculated by hours watched in a title’s first 28 days on the platform, when the vast majority of viewing hours are recorded. And Netflix continues to keep our interest in the film with much promotional material, such as additional featurettes and interviews being added in the last couple of days. Below you will find an overview of what has been added to the site, including a new lengthy video conversation with the cast which was conducted by Netflix in November. I’ve also added more articles and reviews with many thanks to my friend Alvaro. Enjoy the new additions.

We’re in for a special treat today, as Entertainment Weekly reveals a new cover featuring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence and Meryl Streep, a lengthy interview with the cast of the crew as well as a half-hour table interview – all to be found on their website: In a 36th floor meeting room at New York’s Mandarin Oriental Hotel in early December, writer-director Adam McKay is telling lies about Meryl Streep to Leonardo DiCaprio ahead of a star-studded Around the Table panel for his just-released movie Don’t Look Up. “The crazy thing is that she does DJ sets at the ESPN Zone in Times Square three nights a week,” says the Big Short filmmaker to an amused DiCaprio, who is sitting between McKay and his pregnant Don’t Look Up costar Jennifer Lawrence. “What I respect is that she still uses decks,” adds Jonah Hill, joining in the improvisational fun. “She’s digging in the crates. She mashed-up AC/DC and Ludacris!” Streep herself is also present and breaks off chatting with Tyler Perry (hey, we told you this panel was star-studded!) to tongue-in-cheekedly growl her response to this entertaining nonsense. “I know a lot more about DJ-ing than you people think!” says the triple Oscar-winner. The ease with which these panelists riff with each other is a holdover from the making of the film, which McKay directed with his usual improv-encouraging style, and the bonds they formed during its production in the pre-vaccine pandemic. As McKay says, “This was a movie like no other movie I’ve ever been involved in. I actually get moved about how we all rallied together.”

STREEP: I found it really hard. I didn’t feel funny in the lockdown. When I would come in to shoot my stuff, [I’d] get out of the car and hadn’t spoken to anybody in three weeks. [I’d] walk into the stadium in Worcester, put on the wig and the nails and the suit, and make a speech to all these people. I just lost it. I forgot how to act, I forgot what I was about. It sort of dismantles your humanity, to be isolated like that. But thank god for Jonah, because he kept us laughing [Streep is informed by EW’s audio engineer that her microphone has fallen off dress]

HILL: Dude, you interrupted the part where she was saying I was sick! What the f—?

MCKAY: Alright, Meryl, pick it up from saying, “Jonah was a joy who brought us all together.”

STREEP: Jonah was a f—ing nightmare and ruined everything of mine and if I work again, it’s a miracle.

We’re only two weeks away from the theatrical release of “Don’t Look Up” (and less than a month from its Netflix premiere on December 24) and the first batch of news outlets have been published. Alongside reviews from Entertainment Weekly, People and The Denver Post, there’s a lovely new cover story from the Polish Pani magazine. Unfortunately I have only found the cover, maybe some of our Polish visitors can help out with the article :-) Thanks to Alvaro for sending in the mentioned reviews. Enjoy your weekend.

In this week’s Scan Sunday, we’re still stuck in the “Summer of Streep” – that great time in 2006 when both “A Prairie Home Companion” and “The Devil Wears Prada” were released, while Meryl was simutlaneously starring in the Shakespeare in the Park production of “Mother Courage”. We’re also covering the equally busy (but less successful) 2007 with the releases of “Evening”, “Rendition” and “Lions for Lambs”. Enjoy reading.

This week’s Scan Sunday ranges from 2003 to 2004 and features lots of articles on the international releases of “Adaptation”, “The Hours” and “Angels in America”. There are also various reports on her 2004 AFI Life Achievement Honor, including a great cover from The Sunday Telegram. There’s also a very nostalgic article among the updates: I vividly remember flipping through my grandparent’s tv guide in 2003 to find an article on Meryl with a link to this very website. I felt like a rock star :-) How time goes by. Anyway, enjoy all the new updates and your Sunday as well.
