Downsizing

  • A teaser trailer for Downsizing has been released on the film's official Twitter page and YouTube ahead of the full trailer being released on 12 September.



  • The Hollywood Reporter's very positive review is here. Other reviews are less positive.

    Downsizing is a wonderfully outsized movie for these times if there ever was one. Alexander Payne has taken a conceit heretofore used for gag-oriented sci-fi and comedy, that of shrinking human beings down to the size of a finger, and breathtakingly transformed it into a way of addressing the planet's overriding long-term issue. Captivating, funny and possessed of a surprise-filled zig-zag structure that makes it impossible to anticipate where it's headed, this is a deeply humane film that, like the best Hollywood classics, feels both entirely of its moment and timeless. It was a risky roll of the dice, but one that hits the creative jackpot.

  • Photos of Matt and Alexander Payne arriving at a press call in Venice are at the Daily Mail.

  • A new poster for Suburbicon is here.
