I don't know about you, but some of my favourite sci-fi flicks are the ones that don't focus too much on the sci-fi, instead using a touch of the sci as an interesting McGuffin to tell a more conventional story. Some of the better examples of this would be Robot and Frank, The Truman Show and Her.
Well, there's another film coming up that could well find itself on this list, in the form of Downsizing, which stars Christopher Waltz-Platz, Matt Damon and Kirsten Wiig. The film tells the story of a couple who decide life would be a lot simpler and cheaper if they are literally downsized, being shrunk through a special procedure.
The trailer premiers on the 12th September, but there's a short teaser out there right now which you can watch below. With the script coming from Sideways scribes Alexander Payne and Jim Taylor this one will definitely be more Lobster than Avatar, but it still promises to be a fun little movie when it arrives December 22nd.
Does Downsizing interest you? Let us know in the comments below.
