The first US trailer and poster finally debuted last month. And with its release in the States just under a month away, Apple have debuted a new featurette for Upside Down, giving us a look behind the scenes of the film.
“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 opened just shy of the top spot (behind The Expendables 2, in only its second week) in Russia late last summer. Needless to say, I have been really looking forward to its arrival elsewhere, and was really glad to hear that Millennium had acquired it for the US this year. Now all we need is a UK release date, and I’ll be all set.
Upside Down will be released in the US on 15th March. Still no word yet on when it will arrive in the UK, but Lionsgate are thought to have the rights for our shores, and I remain hopeful that they’ll be announcing our release date very soon. For now, here’s the great new featurette for one of my most anticipated films of the year. I can’t wait for this to land.
