Here’s the First Trailer for the Kristen Wiig and Matt Damon’s Whimsical ‘Downsizing’

BY RELEVANT CULTURE September 12, 2017

You need no further sign that we are living in wild times than that Alexander Payne, famous maker of straightforward dramadies like Nebraska and Sideways, has directed what looks to be a scifi-infused bit of societal whimsy starring Kristen Wiig, Matt Damon, Jason Sudekis, Hong Chau and Christoph Waltz.

It takes place in the near future, where scientists have addressed global overpopulation via a novel shrinking invention. The movie’s getting solid reviews coming out of the festival circuit, and Payne’s a reliably gifted filmmaker so if you can swallow the bonkers premise, you might be in for a good time.
