    "Downsizing" - the miniature Matt Damon movie...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCrBICYM0yM

    I believe the basic concept has been done before, but it's not exactly a common concept to see around abouts (the 'shrinking people to save the planet' conceit I've never personally seen before, and as far as 'miniature people' go I've only seen The Borrowers as well as Land of the Giants when I was a kid).

    Trailer doesn't go too deep into plot and focuses more on the concept (a good move, if you ask me - if only more trailers did that!)

    Anyway, this looks like really good fun!

    Oh God, this looks clever!
    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    Looks interesting, but I can see the internet ripping it apart for logical inconsistency already.

    Who cares... I suspect the internet ripped "Being John Malkovich" apart, but doesn't mean it wasn't original and fun
