Downsizing Trailer

After playing the Venice Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival this month, Alexander Payne‘s latest film Downsizing has debuted a full theatrical trailer, giving us a glimpse at the director’s first sci-fi film as only he can deliver.

Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig star in the film as a couple who decide to abandon their lives in the normal-sized world in the innovative and planet-saving “downsized” community of Leisureland, New Mexico, a society created in the future to deal with overpopulation of the world.

Downsizing Teaser

Director Alexander Payne has brought us plenty of outstanding quirky dramatic comedies, ranging from the dark laughs in Election to the family struggles of Nebraska with a little bit of cynical romance in-between with Sideways. Now he’s heading into sci-fi territory with his latest film, and the first teaser has arrived online.

Downsizing takes place in a future where scientists have figured out how to shrink humans down to about five inches tall as a way to deal with the overpopulation of the planet. Smaller societies mean less space required, and Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig are ready to embark on a new life as tiny people. Get your first look at the little civilization and the rest of the cast in the Downsizing teaser below. Read More »

DOWNSIZING

In the future, Matt Damon can become five-inches tall thanks to Norwegian scientists. That’s the premise of Alexander Payne‘s (Nebraska) next film, Downsizing, in which overpopulation has led to people shrinking themselves to live a “bigger” life in a “bigger” home and help the environment while they’re at it. After Sideways, Payne wrote the script with Jim Taylor, but due to its ambition and required visual effects shots, it took a long time to get made. According to Payne, though, it got made at the right time.

Below, check out the Downsizing first look.

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later Trailer

Netflix brought back Wet Hot American Summer for a series revival back in 2015 after development of a sequel to the 2001 Sundance comedy hit was happening for years. Instead of making good upon the promise of a 10-year reunion teased at the end of the movie, the series went back to the first day at Camp Firewood, which was all the more ridiculous simply because it had a cast of actors and actress in their 30s and 40s playing teenagers. But now the reunion we’ve all been waiting for is finally coming.

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later is a new eight episode continuation of the goofy camp comedy that brings back (almost) all of the original cast members again as we flash forward to their lives in 1991. It looks just as insane as the prequel series was, and it even has some new cast members joining the fun.

Requiem for a Dream director Darren Aronofsky was prepping an Evel Knievel biopic as his directorial follow-up to 2014’s Noah, but he ultimately moved on from that project and instead got the ball rolling on Mother!, a mysterious film with Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem in the lead roles.

We known the film follows “a couple whose relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence,” but that’s all that’s been announced so far. Thanks to a new report, we now at least know the filmmaker will be returning to familiar genre territory in his newest movie. Read on to learn more about Darren Aronofsky’s Mother!.
