Apocalyptic movies are having a little moment on Netflix right now. For example, one of the biggest Korean language releases on the streamer in recent times is The still sea. It told the story of a special team sent to the moon to retrieve an important sample from a research facility. Meanwhile, the earth has undergone “desertification” at home. And in addition to The still sea, There are also Don’t look up – a polarizing allegory of climate change from director Adam McKay. It stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence as astronomers who vainly warn the planet of impending catastrophe – and has become one of the biggest titles of all time on Netflix.
