Upside Down looks like one of the most imaginative films to come out this year, but we've been waiting an eternity for it. The first trailer for the sci-fi romance debuted a year ago, and it's actually been out overseas for awhile. We still have a couple of months to go before it lands stateside, so this new domestic trailer will have to suffice.
Starring Jim Sturgess and Kirsten Dunst, the story follows a man who falls in love with a woman he first glimpses on the television as a child. His love for her only grows with time, but they are separated by the fact she lives in an inverted world with its own gravitational pull. The images and footage we've seen hint at a visually stunning production, directed by Juan Solanas who I'm not all that familiar with. Some of the more common scenes, meaning the ones where Dunst and Sturgess aren't together, don't look so good. It's possible this is a film which is sporadically dramatic and often quite terrible, but altogether gorgeous to look at. My point is there's a reason we've been waiting for it so long.
We'll find out for sure when Upside Down finally arrives on March 15th.
