It’s been 389 days since we posted the trailer for Upside Down, and the film (which had many complete effects at that time) has yet to see a domestic release. That is, however, now coming in only a few more months’ time, and Millennium Pictures must be hoping you’ve forgotten about the massive chasm between then and now, or, at least, don’t follow this closely enough to have noticed. Such things can induce concern for a discerning viewer, as you no doubt know.
To help sell the picture, a new, romance-emphasizing trailer has been released. Just like last January, the film looks to have a beautiful design to its world and an interesting romance (between the gravity-crossed Kirsten Dunst and Jim Sturgess), but the concept is something I’ll need to see enacted before being convinced on. But a failure wouldn’t be so terrible, either: helmer Juan Diego Solanas is doing something outside the box, which is enough to be commended for in the first place.
Watch the trailer below (via Yahoo!):
Adam (Sturgess) is a seemingly ordinary guy in a very extraordinary universe. He lives humbly trying to make ends meet, but his romantic spirit holds on to the memory of a girl he met once upon a time from another world, an inverted affluent world with its own gravity, directly above but beyond reach… a girl named Eve (Dunst). Their childhood flirtation becomes an impossible love. But when he catches a glimpse of grown up Eve on television, nothing will get in the way of getting her back… not even the laws of science.
Upside Down will enter limited release on March 15th.

Genre film fans are likely familiar with writer Alex Garland‘s output over the last decade and a half. He made his name with a splash when his novel was adapted into the backpacking adventure thriller The Beach in 2000 and struck again with screenplay for 28 Days Later which some credit as the fire that helped reignite […]
