A big world is waiting for Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig in "Downsizing."

Paramount Pictures released the first official trailer for the Alexander Payne-directed dramedy Tuesday morning, teasing the unique plot that's basically an adult version of "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids."

As a solution to overpopulation, Norwegian scientists discover how to shrink humans to five inches tall, proposing a 200-year global transition from big to small. With the promise of a better life, more bang for their buck and less stress, Paul Safranek (Damon) and his wife Audrey (Wiig) decide to abandon their regular-sized lives in Omaha and move to a new, miniature community.

Their choice triggers life-changing decisions; some are good -- like having access to regular-sized vodka bottles -- and some...not so much.

Damon and Wiig are joined in the Paramount Pictures tale by "Saturday Night Live" vets Alec Baldwin and Jason Sudeikis, as well as Christoph Waltz.

"Downsizing" hits theaters Dec. 22.
