September 12, 2017 | Posted by Joseph Lee

Paramount Pictures has released the trailer for the sci-fi comedy Downsizing. The film was directed by Alexander Payne (Nebraska, The Descendants, Sideways) from script he wrote with Jim Taylor. It stars Matt Damon, Kristen Wiig, Christoph Waltz, Hong Chau and Jason Sudeikis. It will be released on December 22.

Here’s a 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.
