Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for Downsizing, a sci-fi comedy that sees Matt Damon shrinking down to just 5 inches (13 cm), the size of an action figure.
In the alternate future set in Downsizing, overpopulation has become a big issue and scientists are shrinking humans to make more space. With the promise of a great new life, Paul (Matt Damon) and his wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig) decide to undergo the procedure. Of course, as tiny humans, they find themselves looking at the world in a whole new way.
The film also stars Christoph Waltz, Laura Dern, Jason Sudeikis, Neil Patrick Harris and Hong Chau, and is directed by Oscar-winning director Alexander Payne.
When scientists discover how to shrink humans to five inches tall as a solution to over-population, Paul (Matt Damon) and his wife Audrey (Kristen 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.
