No, that header image isn’t flipped — Kirsten Dunst‘s world is. She and Jim Sturgess are the stars of Upside Down, Juan Diego Solanas‘ sci-fi romance about star-crossed lovers in two adjacent planets with opposite gravitational pulls. Though the pair meet and fall in love in childhood, they’re unable to be together because strict laws forbid them from entering each other’s worlds.

We’ve been tracking the film since about 2009, and finally got our first look at some footage when the international trailer hit about a year ago. Now, at long last, we have a domestic trailer to share. Check it out after the jump.

You may not remember the first time we reported on the sci-fi romance Upside Down, because it was over two years ago, in fall 2009. The film stars Kirsten Dunst and Jim Sturgess as lovers of a sort. They inhabit two different worlds, visualized in the film as inverted images of one another, and where the world ‘up top’ is far more well to do than the one ‘down below.’

The film has some striking visuals — there is some Alex Proyas, some Andrew Niccol, and even some Wong Kar Wai in there. It’s a great trailer to kick off the new year, and you can check it out below. Read More »

A man and a woman fall in love but are separated by two different dimensions. No, it’s not only plot to The Lake House, it’s also the plot to Upside Down, the topsy turvy sci-fi romance written and directed by Juan Diego Solanas, which stars Jim Sturgess and Kirsten Dunst. The pair were officially cast in the film way back in October of 2009 and over the summer, we posted a short set visit video. But now, thanks to a French website, we have a look at both some poster concept art as well as the star-crossed lovers on camera. Check them out and read more about this movie – which sounds about one million times cooler than The Lake House – after the break. Read More »

I’ve been keeping an eye on Juan Diego Solanas‘ surreal-sounding sci-fi story Upside Down for a while now. The picture has been in development with Onyx films and Studio 37 for a good while, and has never quite got off of the starting blocks – perhaps due to its mind boggling central concept.

Kirsten Dunst has been in talks to star for some months, I believe, but the news that Jim Sturgess will be taking on the male lead comes after earlier reports that Emile Hirsch was negotiating for the role. Sturgess is a real trade up from Hirsch, I think.
