Our little planet is getting a bit overcrowded and Alexander Payne’s Downsizing highlights that problem. They might just have a solution to the overpopulation is to make everyone small!
Later this month the sci-fi comedy drama starring Matt Damon will be hoping the life as a small person may just answer the end of stressful life. Paramount Pictures has sent us a new clip called ‘Spatula‘ which reveals part of the journey to becoming a ‘small person’. In this clip, we don’t see Damon or any of the main stars just a Spatula coming useful in a new way of evolution!
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 into 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.
Downsizing now has the confirmed UK and Irish release date of 24th January 2018.
The movie will also star Christoph Waltz, Hong Chau, Jason Sudeikis, Laura Dern, Alec Baldwin, Margo Martindale, Neil Patrick Harris and Udo Kier.
