Paramount has released a new Downsizing trailer. Alexander Payne’s new film takes place where scientists have created a method of shrinking people to five inches tall, thus creating a new economy where a person’s financial worth goes much further. Matt Damon plays a financially strapped guy who decides to go small, but he’s left adrift after his wife (Kristen Wiig) bails once he’s had his procedure.

What’s somewhat surprising about this trailer is that it hides the film’s strongest asset, Hong Chau. Granted, Chau isn’t a big star for U.S. audiences, but rumors out of TIFF say that she is a standout.

Check out the Downsizing trailer below. The film opens December 22nd and also stars Jason Sudeikis and Christoph Waltz.

Here’s the official synopsis for Downsizing:

When scientists discover how to shrink humans to five inches tall as a solution to over-population, Paul (Matt Damon) and his wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig) decide to abandon their stressed lives in order to get small and move to a new downsized community — a choice that triggers life-changing adventures.
