Downsizing Teaser Trailer
The first teaser trailer for Downsizing (2017) from Paramount Pictures.
Downsizing plot summary from Imdb:
“Downsizing” follows a kindly occupational therapist who undergoes a new procedure to be shrunken to four inches tall so that he and his wife can help save the planet and afford a nice lifestyle at the same time.
The teaser for Downsizing has two things that I appreciate right off the bat: Christoph Waltz and “Once in a Lifetime” by Talking Heads. While Waltz is always a treat to see on the screen, his affable demeanor appears to be just that here instead of a facade belying sadistic sensibilities as seen in Inglorious Basterds or Spectre. Of course, it may turn out that he is a villain in the context of the movie, but we’ll just have to wait and see until it comes out.
Regarding “Once in a Lifetime”, I can’t help but think of Wreck-It Ralph ever since hearing it in one of the trailers for that film. Its mellow tone and existentialist lyrics really suited the material there, and although we know only the basics of Downsizing‘s plot, I feel its use is appropriate here as well.
Alexander Payne‘s Downsizing (2017) stars Matt Damon, Christoph Waltz, Brigette Lundy-Paine, Kristen Wiig, Laura Dern, Jason Sudeikis, Neil Patrick Harris, James Van Der Beek, Joaquim De Almeida, Margo Martindale, Niecy Nash, Marbieth Monroe, Udo Kier, Kerri Kenney, and Rolf Lassgard.
