The great thing about Fridays is that you get to surf the internet looking for cool stuff. OK, so maybe not "get to" but "do it anyway under the guise of you might find something cool you can write about."

That's what happened this morning: The trailer for the new Matt Damon movie, Downsizing. Maybe it's the lack of coffee, but this looks... well, we're not sure, but it probably beats the hell out of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.

In theaters Dec. 22.
