In an interview with the New York Times, the filmmaker, McKay, acknowledged the film’s plot is nothing new while describing the tone as a dark comedy:

“It’s  not  the  most  high-concept  bizarre  idea — the idea  of a disaster  movie in which  people  don’t  necessarily  believe  that the  disaster  is coming.   It goes back to the  trope  of the  mayor  from  Jaws: ‘Love  to  prove that,   wouldn’t you? Get  your   name  into  the  National  Geographic?’  So it’s  two midlevel,  very sincere  astronomers who make the discovery of a lifetime,  which is a killer asteroid  headed  toward  Earth.  They  have to  warn  everyone  and have to go on a media tour.  It’s  them  navigating  our world.  It’s  them  navigating their equivalent  of  Twitter.  It’s them navigating the  political  landscape.  It’s  them navigating  talk   shows  and  how they’re  perceived.   It’s  DiCaprio and Lawrence and Rob  Morgan trying to   warn the world.  I call it  a  dark  comedy.”
