Don’t Look Up is a record-breaking movie that may inspire investors. It has been watched for 330 million hours, making it the most popular movie in Netflix history. It could also signal record gains in lithium prices.

The plot centres around a scientist portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio. He has discovered that a comet is about to wipe out humanity. The scientist begs the US President (played by Meryl Streep) to divert the comet using nuclear weapons.

Streep plays a female version of former president Trump. The fictional president is given to nepotism and sex scandals, as well as opportunism. She discovers that the asteroid contains trillions of dollars worth of metals. Instead of diverting it, she attempts to fragment the asteroid and recover the metals. The president’s moves could be a warning about the potential of lithium. Lithium is in short supply due to electric vehicles (EVs), which require battery power.
