A Life Lived In Miniature
♦ Matt Damon’s sci-fi movie Downsizing, directed by Alexander Payne, now has a teaser trailer so here it is…
Here is what wikipedia had to say about it:
Downsizing is a 2017 American satirical science fiction comedy film directed by Alexander Payne and written by Payne and Jim Taylor. The film stars Matt Damon, Christoph Waltz, Hong Chau, Jason Sudeikis and Kristen Wiig. Principal photography on the film began on April 1, 2016 in Ontario, Canada.
Downsizing imagines what might happen if, as a solution to over-population, Norwegian scientists discover how to shrink humans to 5 inches (13 cm) 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 become small and move to a new downsized community — a choice that triggers life-changing adventures.
The film premiered at the 74th Venice Film Festival on 30 August 2017 and is set to be released by Paramount Pictures in the United States on 22 December 2017.
