In the wake of the movie’s premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, Paramount Pictures has premiered the trailer for Alexander Payne’s quirky sci-fi comedy “Downsizing” starring Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig.

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 – triggering life-changing adventures.

Christoph Waltz, Hong Chau and Jason Sudeikis star in the film which opens December 22nd.
