To say that I can’t wait for the release of Upside Down would be an enormous understatement. Led by a brilliant pairing of Jim Sturgess and Kirsten Dunst, we had been hoping to see its arrival before the end of last year. And whilst that was sadly not to be, we finally heard back in October that Millennium had acquired it for release in the States this year.
With its US release date now set for March, the first US trailer and poster have debuted over at Yahoo Movies, giving us another exceptional look at what promises to be one of the year’s best films.
“Kept apart from the girl he has loved his entire life; Adam must fight to reunite with Eden. But the laws of his world as well as the laws of gravity keep him from her. Adam must risk everything to access the forbidden world of affluence that exists literally above him. As he struggles to keep the authorities from discovering him while manipulating the gravitational force that physically pulls him back to his world, Adam faces insurmountable danger in hopes of finding his long-lost love.”
Sturgess and Dunst are joined by Timothy Spall.
Juan Diego Solanas is directing from his own script, based on a story he co-wrote with Santiago Amigorena and Pierre Magny.
It was way back in January last year that we saw the stunning first international trailer arrive for Upside Down, and we’ve been eagerly awaiting it ever since.
Upside Down will be released in the US on 15th March, which is definitely a date to commit to memory. Lionsgate are thought to be distributing the film here in the UK, but no word as of yet on a release date on our shores. We’re hoping it will be coming our way in the spring too. Whilst we wait, here’s the fantastic trailer to let you dip a toe in the water. Enjoy.
