Of all the original movies getting released this year, I think this and Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel are the two I’m most looking forward to.
The first US trailer and poster finally made their way online last month, and now the first official clip has debuted over on Facebook, giving us a look at a gravity-defying moment between our leads, Adam (Jim Sturgess) and Eden (Kirsten Dunst).
“In an alternate universe where twinned worlds have opposite gravities, a young man battles interplanetary prejudice and the laws of physics in his quest to reunite with the long-lost girl of his dreams in this visually stunning romantic adventure that poses the question: what if love was stronger than gravity?”
Starring alongside Dunst and Sturgess will be Timothy Spall.
Juan Diego Solanas is directing from his own script, based on a story he co-wrote with Santiago Amigorena and Pierre Magny.
The film has already been released in a handful of international territories, and it goes without saying that I’m jealous of those who’ve already seen it. Upside Down has been something we’ve looked forward to for a long time now, and I’m glad that it’s finally getting the theatrical release it deserves. All I need now is for a UK release date to be announced, and then everything will have fallen into place.
Upside Down is set for release in the US on 15th March, and hopefully we’ll be seeing it on our shores in the UK soon after that. I can’t wait. In the meantime, here’s the first clip, giving us a look at the beautiful chemistry between Sturgess and Dunst.
