A new trailer has been released for the film ‘Upside Down’ and it proves that love can conquer all – even gravity.
The film is from Argentinian director Juan Diego Solanas, who also wrote the film, and centers on two would be lovers who come from two different worlds (literally) and must fight against their own society’s convention (and gravity) to be together. Their worlds are actually twin planets with opposite gravitational pulls. In Adam’s world (Jim Sturgess), you rise down and fall up and in Eden’s world, gravity is much like ours. But that’s not all. There’s also a class distinction between the two worlds and never the two shall meet, that is, until Adam fell in love with Eden.
The premise is very conventional pulling from Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo and Juliet,’ but what makes this film unique is the visual effects. While watching the film upside down while one character is visiting the other may be disorienting, the effect is successful in its supplementation to the storytelling.
The film has already been released in Europe and Asia and response to the film has been rather mild. ‘Upside Down’ is set to be released in March but you can get a good taste of the film from the trailer below.
I’m rather intrigued more with the look of the film than the actual premise and ‘Upside Down’ proves to be one that will visually impress.
Take a look at the trailer below and let us know what you think!
Directed by Juan Diego Solanas, ‘Upside Down’ stars Kirsten Dunst and James Sturgess and will be in limited release beginning March 15, 2013.
