While Matt Damon has provided his share of poignant movie roles in the genres of action and drama, every now and then he takes a conceptual, comedic-leaning risk (see the 2003 conjoined twin comedy Stuck on You). Indeed, his upcoming satire-laced dramedy Downsizing fits that bill, depicting a world in which economic woes have people desperately resorting to literally shrinking themselves down to size for a better bang for their cost of living buck.
It’s from Sideways director Alexander Payne, and here’s the new trailer for the movie…
Joining co-stars Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig in the Downsizing cast are Christoph Waltz, Hong Chau, Jason Sudeikus, Rolf Lassgård, Ingjerd Egeberg, Udo Kier, Søren Pilmark and Maribeth Monroe.
Payne, meanwhile, works off a script he co-wrote with Jim Taylor.
The film doesn’t yet have a UK release date, but it’s set to land in US cinemas three days before Christmas.
