It has been almost five years since the world was graced with the last Alexander Payne film ‘Nebraska, a film that caught a lot of critical attention but can also be considered a perfect example of Payne’s wheelhouse. ‘Downsizing” seems to have all the elements of an Alexander Payne film while somehow hitting a level quirky-ness we haven’t really seem from the critically acclaimed director.

‘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.

Check the official trailer for ‘Downsizing’ right here:

A big world is waiting. Directed by Alexander Payne and starring Damon, Wiig, Christoph Waltz, and Hong Chau! Tune back for more, as ‘Downsizing’ hits theaters this December 22, 2017!
