‘Downsizing’ Trailer: Matt Damon Gets Small to Live Big

Alexander Payne’s Satire

Paramount has debuted the first full trailer for Alexander Payne’s satire Downsizing starring Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig, ahead of its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Also starring Christoph Waltz, Laura Dern, Jason Sudeikis, Neil Patrick Harris, and Hong Chau, the film premiered to rave reviews at last month’s Venice Film Festival.

Here’s the synopsis:

Downsizing imagines what might happen if, as a solution to over-population, Norwegian scientists discover how to shrink humans to five inches tall and propose a 200-year global transition from big to small. People soon realize how much further money goes in a miniaturized world, and with the promise of a better life, everyman Paul Safranek (Matt Damon) and wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig) decide to abandon their stressed lives in Omaha in order to get small and move to a new downsized community — a choice that triggers life-changing adventures.

Downsizing arrives in theaters on December 22. The trailer can be seen below.

This could be interesting… Plus added bonus points for very good choice of music.
