It has been unveiled the first trailer for Downsizing, a film directed by Alexander Payne (Sideways, The Descendants, Nebraska) and starring Matt Damon, Christoph Waltz, Hong Chau and Kristen Wiig.
Downsizing follows the adventures of Paul Safranek (Matt Damon), an everyman from Omaha who, along with his wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig), dreams of a better life. As the world faces an overpopulation crisis, scientists develop a radical solution that can shrink humans to five inches tall. People soon discover how much further money goes in a smaller world, and with the promise of a lavish lifestyle beyond their wildest imaginations, Paul and Audrey decide to risk the controversial procedure and embark upon an adventure that will change their lives forever.
Watch the trailer below:
Co-written by Payne and his creative partner Jim Taylor, Downsizing premiered at the Venice Film Festival last month to rave reviews, and will make an appearance at the London Film Festival in October, ahead of a wide cinema release from 22 December.
