Downsizing Trailer #2 (2017) *Go Big By Going Small*

I hated Nebraska and Sideways and was wishy-washy on The Descendants, but Alexander Payne’s new concept for Downsizing is so clever, I’m curious.  I want this to be good, but I will put a SPOILER WARNING on this trailer because I think it gives away a major plot twist it didn’t need to, so be forewarned.

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.  Directed by two-time Oscar-winner Alexander Payne (Nebraska, The Descendants, Sideways) from a screenplay by Payne and Jim Taylor, Downsizing arrives in theaters on December 22.

    1. She really is a great actress, and I think it looks good too despite my past hatred of Payne projects. I just hate they gave out as much info as they did in this trailer. That wasn’t needed to get people into the theater.


  1. I’ve watched the preview about six times over the last few days because, since seeing it the first time, I wanted to show friends and family. It looks great. I’m a big fan of Honey I shrunk the kids so maybe that’s why I’m so excited haha.

  2. For some reason I kept thinking this already came out but that was Suburbicon. Not sure why I kept getting them mixed up (other than Matt Damon) but I was disappointed when Suburbicon bombed because I thought this film (not Suburbicon) looked really fun. Glad this one is still coming. 🙂
