Downsizing starring Matt Damon releases full-sized trailer

DOWNSIZING has a fascinating premise: would you turn tiny if it meant you could also be rich? From director Alexander Payne , this looks to be a fun skewering of wannabe "save the world" types who only actually do anything when there's an economic incentive.

Alexander Payne compares Downsizing to Black Mirror in first look image

With the exception of ANT-MAN, I can't think of too many recent movies in which shrinking plays a large part, which is a shame, because films like THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN, FANTASTIC VOYAGE, HONEY, I SHRUNK THE KIDS, and INNERSPACE are great fun and feature some truly imaginative effects.
