Rolf Lassgård As A Scientist In Downsizing Comedy

A teaser trailer has been released for Alexander Payne’s Downsizing, which stars Rolf Lassgård as a Norwegian scientist who solves the problem of overpopulation and lack of world resources by shrinking people down to the size of action figures.

Paul Safranek (Matt Damon) and his wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig) decide that they want to give it a go, and move to a new downsized community. But at the last minute, Audrey backs out, leaving Paul small and annoyed.

Downsizing premiered at the Venice Film Festival on Wednesday, and receives a theatrical release on December 22nd. The cast also includes Christoph Waltz, Laura Dern, Jason Sudeikis, and Neil Patrick Harris.
