Don't Look Up Fans Not Convinced By Director's Response To 'Editing Fail'

People who caught new Netflix's Don't Look Up are convinced they've spotted a major 'editing flaw' in the film and now we can't unsee it.

The disaster comedy dropped on Netflix on Christmas Eve and, although it had viewers feeling a little bit uneasy towards the end, fans still can't stop talking about it and are going back in for rewatch after rewatch.

While many are convinced that the film has one crucial error, writer and director Adam McKay has insisted that the shot was left in intentionally 'to commemorate the strange filming experience' - but not everyone's convinced.

Check out his video here:

TikTok user Ben Köhler (@sightpicture) was watching Don't Look Up at home when he had to pause the film to investigate.

He told viewers: "Hey guys, I was just watching Don't Look Up, and at one hour, 28 minutes and 10 seconds, it looks like, you can see the whole film crew standing here for like three or four frames.

"They're like 'Oh they probably won't notice that!'"

The scene in question sees Jennifer Lawrence's character Kate Dibiasky back in her home town after giving up on trying to save the world from extinction, cozying up to local skater Yule (Timothée Chalamet) at a parking lot bonfire.

In the freeze frame, we can clearly see a camera man and boom man, as well as a number of others that look a little bit out of place, standing around and watching the scene with their face masks on.

Reacting to Ben's discovery, some fans were convinced that the production crew was supposed to be visible in the scene.

One person wrote: "Um it's a mockumentary. You're supposed to see them."

Another added: "How is everyone missing the movie was intentionally made the way it is????"

The TikTok creator replied: "Lol let's see. Camera op, boom op, 1st ac, several PA's all wearing Covid masks, no one in the whole film is [wearing] masks."

Agreeing that the shot was a mistake, another fan joked: "That's the part where you weren't supposed to look up."

Since fans have pointed out the error, Adam McKay has responded and claimed that the shot was supposed to make it into the film's final cut.

He tweeted: "Good eye! We left that blip of the crew in on purpose to commemorate the strange filming experience."

However, many were still not convinced.

"That's what I would say too if I messed up this hard," replied one viewer.

"Just admit you didn't notice it. It's okay," added another fan.

"Gonna start using 'Good eye! That was on purpose!' as my defence when people point out my small editing mistakes," joked a third.
