The first full look at the upcoming sci-fi comedy Downsizing has been unveiled online.
The movie is the latest from two-time Oscar-winning director Alexander Payne, whose credits include Election, About Schmidt, Sideways, The Descendants and Nebraska.
Downsizing premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and stars Matt Damon, Christopher Waltz, Kristen Wiig, Hong Chau and Jason Sudeikis.
In an overpopulated world, Downsizing imagines that scientists have found an environmentally and economically friendly solution – shrinking people to 5 inches tall. With the promise of a better life in a miniaturised world, Paul (Matt Damon) and his wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig) decide to leave their lives in Omaha in order to get small and move to a new downsized community.
Enough filler there – here’s the trailer.
Downsizing opens in Irish cinemas January 19th, 2018.
