Honey, they shrunk Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig. That's the premise of the new adult version of our favorite childhood movie about shrinkage and giant ants. In Alexander Payne's new film Downsized, Damon and Wiig take part in a scientific process known as "downsizing" that literally shrinks people to fight overcrowding. Think the weird dystopian comedy of The Lobster but instead of getting turned into an animal, you get shrunk to 0.364% of your body mass.
After playing to warm reviews at the Venice Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival, the first trailer is finally out and, honestly, it makes shrinkage look pretty chill. There are giant bottles of vodka, $52,000 is equivalent to $12.5 million, and you get to hang out with Christoph Waltz and Jason Sudeikis. Sign us up.
