Søren Pilmark In Alexander Payne’s Downsizing

The first official trailer for Alexander Payne’s Downsizing has been released, which stars Søren Pilmark (Department Q) and Rolf Lassgård (Sebastian Bergman) as Norwegian scientists who have solved the problem of overpopulation and lack of world resources by shrinking people down to the size of action figures.

In the film, 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 receives a theatrical release on December 22nd, and Søren Pilmark returns to the big screen next year in the final Department Q film by Zentropa, The Purity of Vengeance, where he reprises his role as Nikolaj Lie Kaas’ boss.
