The trailer starts out with the set up announcement of the invention of a process to shrink people down to less than 1% of their normal size. It gives us a unusual, speculative playground in which to grapple with our present-day fears about economic and environmental collapse.

We've got the best houses, the best restaurants - Cheesecake Factory, we've got three of 'em!" From director Alexander Payne, the movie has a star-studded cast which is supported by Christoph Waltz, Alec Baldwin and Neil Patrick Harris among others.

The film is now playing at TIFF and will continue the festival circuit in coming months (next stop Fantastic Fest!), and opens in theaters nationwide on December 22.
