Downsizing review

Paramount Pictures has released a new trailer for their upcoming Alexander Payne film Downsizing, which releases in UK cinemas.

Matt Damon, Christoph Waltz, Hong Chau, Jason Sudeikis and Kristen Wiig are amongst the cast of the film, which opens early next year.

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.

Catch Downsizing in cinemas in the UK from January 19th 2018, and the new trailer below. Our full review of the film from the BFI London Film Festival is online over here.
