Tough Mother and Rookies Make Up Supporting Actress Oscar Race

Tough Mother and Rookies Make Up Supporting Actress Oscar Race
Motherhood is a common theme for supporting actresses this year, from Emmy winners Laurie Metcalf and Allison Janney parenting lead actress potentials Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie in “Lady Bird” and “I, Tonya,” respectively. Then there’s Mary J. Blige’s tough matriarch in “Mudbound,” a commanding performance by the singer. Matriarch Catherine Keener is not to be trusted in “Get Out” while Holly Hunter is loving parent to a sick daughter in “The Big Sick.” And there’s a mother of a different kind with Melissa Leo in “Novitiate,” playing a Mother Reverend grappling with change. Other potential nominees include previous winner Octavia Spencer, standing out in the strong ensemble of “The Shape of Water,” previous nominee Kristen Scott Thomas bringing grace to the wife of Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hour,” and newcomer Hong Chau, stealing scenes as a political activist in “Downsizing.” Buzz is also high on Lesley Manville, though “[link

Matt Damon and Downsizing Show Audiences an Eerie (and Tiny) Future

Matt Damon and Downsizing Show Audiences an Eerie (and Tiny) Future
Have you ever thought what it would be like to be really, really small? Probably—at least after the requisite childhood viewing of Indian in the Cupboard. Have you ever thought about what it would be like if Matt Damon were really, really small? Probably not. But now you'll never have to wonder. Downsizing, the upcoming flick from Oscar-winning director Alexander Payne (the man behind Sideways and The Descendants), explores that very question. It stars Damon and Kristen Wiig as a husband and wife in a not-quite-dystopic and not-quite-utopic future in which a company has figured out how to shrink humans down to fit in the palm of what used to be your...

Tiffany Haddish on 'SNL': 3 Sketches You Have to See

Tiffany Haddish on 'SNL': 3 Sketches You Have to See
After a subpar outing last week, Saturday Night Live produced what might have been its best episode of Season 43 this time around. A lot of that had to do with host Tiffany Haddish, who brought energy and excitement to each sketch. Even when the material wasn't terribly strong (especially post-"Weekend Update"), Haddish did her damnedest to keep things afloat.

Still, the hits far outweighed the misses this week. It's hard not to include sketches that involved surprise cameos from former cast members (Jason Sudeikis reprising his Joe Biden impression

If You're a Fan of the Tiny-House Trend, You'll Love Matt Damon's New Movie

  • BuzzSugar
Have you ever wished that Honey, I Shrunk the Kids was a drama instead of a fun, family comedy? Well, you're in luck. Downsizing stars Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig as a middle-class couple who are offered the opportunity to "downsize" their lives, literally, after the technology to shrink human beings down to a few inches tall is invented. The concept alone is enough to make it one of Fall's most anticipated new movies, not to mention the all-star cast (which also includes Jason Sudeikis, Christoph Waltz, and Hong Chau). Suffice it to say, the tiny-house trend is shook. Watch the latest trailer above before Downsizing hits theaters on Dec. 25.

Watch The New Official Trailer For Matt Damon Starrer ‘Downsizing’

Downsizing

Paramount Pictures has released a new trailer for their upcoming Alexander Payne film Downsizing, which releases in UK cinemas.

Matt Damon, Christoph Waltz, Hong Chau, Jason Sudeikis and Kristen Wiig are amongst the cast of the film, which opens early next year.

Downsizing imagines what might happen if, as a solution to over-population, Norwegian scientists discover how to shrink humans to five inches tall and propose a 200-year global transition from big to small. People soon realize how much further money goes in a miniaturized world, and with the promise of a better life, everyman Paul Safranek (Matt Damon) and wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig) decide to abandon their stressed lives in Omaha in order to get small and move to a new downsized community — a choice that triggers life-changing adventures.

Trailer Roundup: 'Downsizing,' 'The Disaster Artist' and 'Pottersville'

  • Movies.com
We've got three new trailers to share today that all involve a level of goofiness:   Downsizing  The second trailer for Alexander Payne's latest makes the movie look like a broader comedy than it probably is, focusing on more of the comedy and lighter material from the sci-fi drama about people who shrink themselves to find a better, more economical life. Matt Damon is front and center as the lead character who goes through with the process, while his wife, played by Kristen Wiig, is shown to get cold feet. Despite the mixed reviews out of festivals (the current Rotten Tomatoes score is 65%), Downsizing looks like a good time at the movies. We'll see when it opens on December 22.   The Disaster Artist More fun might be had with...

Third Trailer for Alexander Payne's Human Shrinking Film 'Downsizing'

"Open your eyes. The world is filled with things to see." Paramount has debuted another official trailer for Alexander Payne's Downsizing, which has been playing at film festivals over the past few months. This social satire from Payne is a hugely ambitious film where the Norwegians have invented a method to shrink humans down to a very small size - about 4 inches. The story follows Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig as a married couple who decide to get the procedure in order to live a happier, better life in a tiny city – and save the environment while at it. The cast includes Christoph Waltz, Laura Dern, Jason Sudeikis, Neil Patrick Harris, Udo Kier, Kerri Kenney, and Hong Chau. If you're curious about it, or if you think it's a cool concept, I recommend seeing this. But it's probably not what you're expecting. Still, it's fun (at times). Here's the

‘Downsizing’: New Trailer Has Matt Damon Learning the Ups and Downs of Being Small

  • Collider.com
Paramount has released a new Downsizing trailer. Alexander Payne’s new film takes place where scientists have created a method of shrinking people to five inches tall, thus creating a new economy where a person’s financial worth goes much further. Matt Damon plays a financially strapped guy who decides to go small, but he’s left adrift after his wife (Kristen Wiig) bails once he’s had his procedure. The trailer inadvertently highlights the movie’s biggest problem, which is that for all the satire Payne and co-writer Jim Taylor are able to squeeze into their admittedly clever …

Chris Hemsworth Says His Ghostbusters Cameo Helped Make Thor: Ragnarok Funnier
Chris Hemsworth says his Ghostbusters’ cameo helped sharpen his comedy chops for his new Marvel movie, Thor: Ragnarok.

“It was a bit of encouragement for this film and what we could do, and experiment — a lot more with improvisation,” he told PageSix Tuesday. “I credit Ghostbusters, Saturday Night Live, Vacation as sort of a lead-up to this film.”

Hemsworth hosted SNL and made an appearance in Ed Helm’s comedy Vacation in 2015, and had a cameo alongside Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones in last year’s Ghostbusters reboot.
