Upside Down Preview

Posted by Grey Monday, May 2, 2011

In "Upside Down", an upcoming Sci-Fi/romance film, wee might be witnessing the worst star-crossed lovers in movie history.

Why yes, blame it on the stars (as in the original meaning of star-crossed lovers being "thwarted by a malign star"), or in this case, Earth. To be precise, another Earth.

As much as this reminds you of Another Earth, the plot of Upside Down is remarkably different with a romantic twist.

Here's the plot synopsis, courtesy of slashfilm:

Look up towards the sky and rub your eyes because you won't believe what you see: cities, forests, and oceans with their own inverted gravity, only an arm's length away, yet completely unreachable. Take a leap over to this alternate reality, two worlds – one above, one below‐ facing each other, and you'll land in the extraordinary world of Upside Down, the new ground‐breaking film of Juan Solanas, the director of the innovative Cannes and César‐prized short film The Man Without A Head and heartbreaking 2005 Cannes film Nordeste.

Adam 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. 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 law or science!

Here at The Daily Zombies, we find it obligatory to look into any films with a high concept. And with Alex McDowell (Watchmen, Minority Report and Fight Club) filling in the role of Production Designer, with Michelle McGahey (from Dark City and The Matrix) as the Supervising Art Director, it would also be fair to expect a film with some intricately designed visuals.

Starring Jim Sturgess and Kirsten Dunst as the star-crossed lovers, Upside Down was initially tagged with a May 2011 release date, but based on what we read at French website Into The Screen, the film is currently going through a year-long post-production process, and is thus likely to be release only in 2012.
