I love a good fantasy/sci-fi movie and this upcoming flick and 100% piqued my interest. For those of you who don’t know about this, may I introduce you to Upside Down which stars the acting chops of Kirsten Dunst and the adorable, Jim Sturgess. He’s come a long way from Across The Universe huh? Here is a synopsis of this new film:
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.
So as you can see, the tale is a spin on the classic biblical teachings of Adam & Eve and Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet. The film was written and directed by Juan Diego Solanas who has previously only released two other French films. The film had a budget of $50 million dollars and it looks like they spent every penny wisely. Check out the trailer below.
I know already that critics are going to be quick to draw comparisons to previous films of it’s like or nature. However, I am thoroughly excited to check it out. Will you go and see Upside Down when it hits theaters sometime this year?
