Downsizing trailer tease introduces the cast of the shrinking comedy
Paramount Pictures has revealed the first footage from Alexander Payne’s Downsizing, his long-in-development sci-fi shrinking comedy starring Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig. Check out the Downsizing trailer tease below, and look for the full trailer on September 12!
When scientists discover how to shrink humans to five inches tall as a solution to over-population, Paul (Damon) and his wife Audrey (Wiig) decide to abandon their stressed lives in order to get small and move to a new downsized community — a choice that triggers life-changing adventures. Payne has described Downsizing as “‘Black Mirror’ by way of Robert Altman.”
The cast will also include Christoph Waltz, Hong Chau, Laura Dern, Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Sudeikis.
Directed by two-time Oscar-winner Alexander Payne (Nebraska, The Descendants, Sideways) from a screenplay by Payne and Jim Taylor, Downsizing arrives in theaters on December 22.
