Matt Damon gets small to live large in Academy Award®-Winning Director Alexander Payne’s hilarious and original comedy that is available as of this week on 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™ and DVD.

Synopsis: When scientists find a way to shrink humans to five inches tall, Paul Safranek (Academy Award® winner Matt Damon) and his wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig) decide to ditch their stressed out lives in order to get small and live large in a luxurious downsized community. Filled with life-changing adventures and endless possibilities, Leisureland offers more than riches, as Paul discovers a whole new world and realizes that we are meant for something bigger. “Downsizing” also stars Academy Award® winner Christoph Waltz and Hong Chau in a breakthrough performance that earned her Golden Globe® and SAG nominations.

Additional cast includes: Brigitte Lundy-Paine, Joaquim de Almeida, Margo Martindale and Texas born Pepe Serna (“Scarface,” “The Rookie,” “American Me,”) as Senor Cardenas, among the many other supporting cast.

The film is rated R. The film is also available now on Digital.

During the South by Southwest® (SXSW®) Conference and Festivals earlier this month, Paramount Home Entertainment had a presence for two days with “agents” available to introduce attendees to America’s #1 microcommunity, Leisureland. “Downsizing’s Leisureland Welcome Center was ready to tell shoppers and visitors to the SXSW Marketplace “when you go small, the possibilities are big!” with a 100% free introduction.

Interested parties were able to: check out the Leisureland community; find out how much they’ll be worth when they downsize and take a photo showing the projected size following the downsizing procedure.  As for me, I did visit the SXSW Marketplace, but opted to stay in my current state and not purchase real estate in Leisureland now.
